Turning Microservices Inside-Out: Unbundling Databases and Utilizing Event Logs with Debezium

2021-08-04

This article discusses the benefits and practicality of replacing relational databases with event logs for microservices architectures. Rather than replacing databases, the article suggests complementing them with event logs through a connecting tissue such as Debezium. It also emphasizes designing microservices with inbound and outbound APIs as well as a meta API that describes these APIs for future-proofing. The article also stresses the importance of meta APIs in enabling faster development cycles through compatibility checks, notifications, code generation, and test simulations. Finally, the article recommends frameworks like Debezium that act as a connecting tissue between databases and event logs to benefit from both technologies simultaneously.
