  • GitHub repo tidb

    TiDB is an open source distributed HTAP database compatible with the MySQL protocol

    Project mention: Comparing Nginx Performance in Bare Metal and Virtual Environments | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-29

    I do agree with you in that regard, however, that's also a dangerous line of thinking.

    There are attempts to provide horizontal scalability for RDBMSes in a transparent way, like TiDB https://pingcap.com/ (which is compatible with the MySQL 5.7 drivers), however, the list of functionality that's sacrificed to achieve easily extensible clusters is a long one: https://docs.pingcap.com/tidb/stable/mysql-compatibility

    There are other technologies, like MongoDB, which sometimes are more successful at a clustered configuration, however most of the traditional RDBMSes work best in a leader-follower type of replication scenario, because even those aforementioned systems oftentimes have data consistency issues that may eventually pop up.

    Essentially, my argument is that the lack of good horizontally scalable databases or other data storage solutions is easily explainable by the fact that the problem itself isn't solvable in any easy way, apart from adopting eventual consistency, which is probably going to create more problems than it will solve in case of any pre-existing code that makes assumptions about what ways it'll be able to access data and operate on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacies_of_distributed_compu...

    To that end, i'd perhaps like to suggest an alternative: use a single vertically scalable RDBMS instance when possible, with a hot standby if you have the resources for that. Let the architecture around it be horizontally scalable instead, and let it deal with the complexities of balancing the load and dealing with backpressure - introduce a message queue if you must, maybe even an in-memory one for simplicity's sake, or consider an event based architecture where "what needs to be done" is encapsulated within a data structure that can be passed around and applied whenever possible. In my eyes, such solutions can in many cases be better than losing the many benefits of having a single source of truth.

    Alternatively, consider sharding as a possibility, or, alternatively, do some domain driven design, figure out where to draw some boundaries and split your service into multiple ones that cover the domain with which you need to work with. Then you have one DB for sales, one for account management, one for reports and so on, all separated by something as simple as REST interfaces and with rate limits or any of the other mechanisms.

    If, however, neither of those two groups of approaches don't seem to be suitable for the loads that you're dealing with, then you probably have a team of very smart people and a large amount of resources to figure out what will work best.

    To sum up, if there are no good solutions in the space, perhaps that's because the problems themselves haven't been solved yet. Thus, sooner or later, they'll need to be sidestepped and their impact mitigated in whatever capacity is possible.

  • GitHub repo OpenFaaS

  • GitHub repo dapr

    Dapr is a portable, event-driven, runtime for building distributed applications across cloud and edge.

    Project mention: Azure Service Bus | reddit.com/r/AZURE | 2021-12-02

    This sounds like something you can do with Dapr (https://dapr.io/) It's a microservice architecture that was developed by Microsoft i think and now open-source. It has build in support for communication between services. I don't know your architecture/landscape or the requirements, but maybe this could work for you. If not, yeah queues could work. Setup a listener on startup for the specific queue and you should be good. Keep scaling in mind, I think there was a limit to the number of listeners is possible on a queue (1 per partition or something)

  • GitHub repo Pulumi

  • GitHub repo up

    Deploy infinitely scalable serverless apps, apis, and sites in seconds to AWS.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-18

    I can also recommend serverless.com framework for local development and running lambdas offline.

    AWS provides a docker image for emulating DynamoDB which works great for local dev and will commonly be paired with lambdas.

    Another option I have used recently for implementing node web services is https://github.com/apex/up which also has a nice local dev experience.

  • GitHub repo fission

    Fast and Simple Serverless Functions for Kubernetes

    Project mention: Self hosted vercel alternative ? | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-08-26

  • GitHub repo fn

    The container native, cloud agnostic serverless platform.

    Project mention: Serverless functions with FN project | dev.to | 2021-10-06

    Still, for today I would like to talk to you about the FN project, an open-source alternative.

  • Scout APM

  • GitHub repo crossplane

    Your Universal Control Plane

    Project mention: Kubernetes Cluster API v1.0, Production Ready | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-27

    I wonder what this means for projects like https://crossplane.io/, it's a tool that lets you provision cloud resources with Kubernetes manifests. I guess this cluster API is maybe something Crossplane would use under the hood?

    I haven't used Crossplate yet but I like the idea around it and could see things moving into this direction over time.

    Project mention: How to scale containers that are unrelated to physical traits like CPU or Memory? | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-11-07

    I'm not 100% sure if I understand exactly what you're requirements are, but keda for example, allows you to use all kinds of event emitters (databases are one of them) for autoscaling.

    Does it bug anyone else when people come out promoting their "new" thing that has used the name of an existing well established thing? https://github.com/solo-io/gloo like... how hard is it to search and see the name's already taken?

  • GitHub repo IronFunctions

    IronFunctions - the serverless microservices platform by

    Project mention: Tron deposit | reddit.com/r/ledgerwallet | 2021-04-27

    The ledger Tron proxy is not working so you will have your money but the ledger live can't see it. I'm not sure if anyone has logged a ticket, but I do believe if you go into developer options in ledger live you can make it connect directly to iron.io and that will resolve it. Only works on desktop though. I'm also getting some other errors randomly so perhaps there are some bigger issues. Anyway, I'd suggest the dev option to check it out.

  • GitHub repo kubevela
