Enterprises are moving to the cloud, but few are prepared for networking implications of cloud-native architectures. Specially-designed for microservices communication with far less overhead than HTTP, RSocket is an open source application-level networking protocol and RPC framework built specifically for cloud-native application and microservice communication. It is being developed in collaboration with Netflix, Facebook, Pivotal and others, and is currently being used by some of the highest-traffic sites on the internet. RSocket is designed to handle the challenges of communication between complex networks of services both within the data center and over the internet – extending to mobile devices and browsers. RSocket uses bi-directional application communication technology that predicts the best route to send messages understanding latency and error rates and the ability to handle load balancing, while being able to run over standard transports (like TCP, HTTP/2 and WebSocket). This results in applications that are easier to scale, less failure-prone and easier to operate. In this session, Ryland will explain how RSocket can be used to simplify the way enterprises build and operate cloud-native applications by enabling traditional enterprise developers to build sophisticated, cloud-native, distributed applications.
