NATS All the Way Up: The Evolution of the NATS Protocol
In this talk, we will give you an overview of the architecture of NATS Server, and an evolution of the internals of the implementation of the NATS protocol (which is now 10 years!). We’ll introduce you to the NATS Adaptive Edge Architecture pattern which gives a distributed system the flexibility to be composed of both nodes that form a cluster in a cloud and edge nodes as well as multi-tenancy. We’ll show how this translates into the implementation of the server (gateway and leafnode connections) to be able to create a global network of servers where the applications can just forget about the endpoints and be developed in terms of available streams and services instead.
Waldemar, aka Wally, is a core maintainer of NATS and the author of “Practical NATS”. Before joining Synadia, he worked on a container orchestration system that used NATS for its control plane at Apcera and formed part of the PaaS team at Rakuten in Tokyo.
Jaime was a self-driving car whisperer at Cruise Automation before joining Synadia. He worked on systems that helped distressed vehicles when making challenging maneuvers on San Francisco streets. During off-hours, Jaime is always tinkering with something.
