Exploring Stateful Microservices in the Cloud Native World

Track: Cloud Technology
Abstract

While stateless systems are easier to architect, design, and implement, the truth of the matter is that we live in a stateful world in which we need to keep track of the state of data in a lot of cases. So how can we handle persisting data with containerized microservices in a Cloud Native world?
