Architectural patterns of resilient distributed systems

by Ines Sombra (Fastly)

Modern systems can fail in spectacular ways. Failure isn’t a question of if, but when. Resilient systems can endure and gracefully recover from failures, but ensuring your system has these properties requires thought and some deliberate architectural decisions. Join me in this talk as I attempt to find answers in literature and industry to build a more robust system. I will also share the lessons learned while applying these patterns and key takeaways that you can carry to your own systems.
