If you are considering moving to a microservices architecture, you are in good company. IDC estimates that 90% of all new apps will feature microservices architectures by 2022.
A microservices architecture offers the ability to decompose your app into many loosely-coupled services organized around business capabilities, thereby alleviating some of the complexities. Of course, microservices are not a free lunch, but for most large, complex apps, they allow teams to deploy new features faster, scale more easily, and pick the best technology stacks.
But what about distributed data? Each microservice is able to select the right database for the right job by employing a data model based on key-value, graph, hierarchical, JSON, streams, search, and so on. With over 300 databases available in the market, this creates a challenge when selecting a database that both meets your criteria and is lightweight enough for a microservices architecture.
