Telecom strategies for service discovery in microservice environments
In order to communicate with another service, a service needs to know the address of other services. This knowledge can be acquired by a process called service discovery (SD). In a microservice architecture (MSA), unlike SOA, a service discovery framework has not been provided out of the box. In a telecom environment additional requirements may arise, besides the basic one of discoverability. In this paper we shortly present the state of the art in service discovery with reflections on the specific needs of MSA and in particular in the context of telecom applications. In this context open source frameworks are investigated and compared.
