Building a High-Performance Networking Protocol for Microservices

As more and more applications are distributed, latency is becoming a critical factor in delivering a good user experience. Techniques used in Fintech and Adtech – such as zero copy, flyweights, composite buffers, pooled memory, shared memory transport, direct memory in languages like Java – can be applied to help improve performance. Many of these techniques were applied while developing the open source RSocket protocol. The session will include examples and a demonstration of how these techniques can be used to improve performance in distributed applications.
