Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll improve the caching mechanism between a Catalog API and microservices. This will reduce the number of unnecessary requests, and reduce costs from your cloud provider. You’ll explore near cache, remote cache, and proxy cache mechanisms, then evaluate the pros-and-cons of each approach.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
