Distributed Transactions in a Service Mesh
As we go deeper into cloud-native applications, microservices are becoming a part of any developer’s life. Together with Kubernetes and service meshes, they became the de facto standard in the industry. However, one question arises with microservices: How to implement distributed transactions in such an environment?
In this talk, we will discuss distributed transaction methodologies, talk about real-life scenarios, and provide a hands-on resolution in the Istio service mesh using the Hazelcast application platform. The attendees will easily understand the distributed saga pattern, backend architecture, and the topology of the solutions with live demonstrations.
