Database as a Microservice: Stateless in a Stateful World

October 30, 2017

Evolution of Stateless Computing

Microservices have become dominant over the last few years, so much so that it is hard to imagine encountering a modern application built with a SOAP API. The wide spread usage of stateless microservices has allowed for modern applications to be easily and quickly deployed horizontally and directly on the edge.  The lightweight nature of REST APIs due to their statelessness, have allowed for applications with less overhead, quicker integration times, and a much more enjoyable programming experience.  Microservice adoption at both the application and middleware layer have driven much of the advances in edge computing.
