How to Overcome Data Challenges When Refactoring Monoliths to Microservices
Kenny Bastani, Pivotal and Jason Mimick, MongoDB
About this talk
When taking existing monoliths and decomposing their components into new microservices, the most critical concerns have much less to do with the application code and more to do with handling data.
In this webinar, Kenny Bastani from Pivotal and Jason Mimick from MongoDB will focus on various methods of strangling a monolith’s ownership of domain data by transitioning the system of record over time. The new system of record, MongoDB, will fuel rapidly built and deployed microservices which companies can leverage for new revenue streams.
They will use practices from Martin Fowler’s Strangler Application to slowly strangle domain data away from a legacy system into cloud-native MongoDB clusters using microservices built with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.
