Taking advantage of microservice architecture and DynamoDB for costs optimization.
Microservice architecture gives flexibility and ability to change components independently. At Sumo Logic we use microservices running on AWS cloud infrastructure. That allowed us to replace one microservice with more cost effiecient implementation. The talk will be a case study, how we are saving $23k / month by taking the advantage of this pattern. We were able to remove one legacy cluster and replace it with the NoSQL database as a service (Amazon DynamoDB). I'll highlight what we learned from this project and what issues we faced during such migration.
