In the Merchant Experience team specifically, and in Groupon in general, we have to deal with the challenge of scale and performance that our global business imposes. We make heavy use of SOA and microservices in our platform, though that is usually not enough. The solutions that we need make us explore and try different architectural patterns that move beyond what a SOA approach can provide. In this short talk we’ll explore some of these alternatives architectures, which problems they solve and how they integrate in microservices platform.
