Orchestration Patterns for Microservices with Messaging by RabbitMQ

Companies looking to speed up their software development are adopting microservices architectures (MSA). Building applications as groups of smaller components with fewer dependencies helps companies such as Comcast, Capital One, Uber, and Netflix deliver more frequent releases and thus innovate faster.

An important consideration in adopting an MSA is deciding how individual services should communicate between each other. Adding a message queue such as RabbitMQ to handle inter-service messages can improve communication by:

  • Simplifying our services so they only need to know how to talk to the messenger service.
  • Abstracting communication by having the messenger service handle sophisticated orchestration patterns.
  • Scaling message throughput by increasing the cluster size of the messenger service.
  • Requirements for communicating between microservices

In this webinar we’ll discuss:

  • Typical messaging patterns in microservice architectures
  • Use cases where RabbitMQ shines
  • How to use the RabbitMQ service for Pivotal Cloud Foundry to deploy and run your applications

We’ll also demonstrate how to deploy RabbitMQ in Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and how to incorporate it in microservices-based applications. Presenters: Greg Chase, Pivotal and Dan Baskette, Pivotal
