Microservices and IoT: A Perfect Match

Microservices always sound nice and neat, but it can be all too easy to end up building what amounts to a distributed monolith instead. Luckily streaming data (such as that from IoT devices) lends itself well to a style of architecture that realises the benefits of microservices, while avoiding many of the difficulties and pitfalls. In this talk I will describe such an architecture developed at Urbanise using Amazon Kinesis and idempotent, horizontally scalable, fault tolerant, microservices for processing of sensor data.
