Horrors of Distributed Systems


Many projects grow to the point where distributed systems are needed - or even more excitingly, plunge into it headfirst my adopting microservices - but along with the obvious challenges of more servers and more storage, there's all sorts of hidden dangers that you might never even have planned for.
