Julio Viera, VP Engineering- Backend as a Service, Fuze
At Fuze, we are going through the process of re-architecting our backends and we decided to use a microservices approach. Microservice architectures face common challenges like geo-distribution of data, retention periods, and security rules. We found that MongoDB with zone sharding enabled us to address these concerns effectively. We created a service called The Floppy, which is a RESTful Object Storage that automatically scales and distributes the data around the world. The Floppy also supports real-time queries via WebSockets and advanced security rules using expressions that are evaluated in real time.
