Legacy data gateways for microservices
Application architecture evolution has fragmented the backend implementation into independent microservices and functions. However, there's still a gap in the way this evolution has dealt with data because evolution tends to avoid dealing with static environments.
At the same time, microservices encourage developers to create new polyglot data persistence layers that then, need to be composite to deliver business value. How can we apply the knowledge from API gateways to these new data stores?
In this discussion of legacy data, Hugo Guerrero talks about the behavior of data gateways and API gateways, the different data gateway types and their architectures, and the extended data-proxy for hybrid cloud deployments.
