Luke Kosewski describes the internals and machinations of Flow, how a similar approach may add value to a microservice architecture, and what preconditions must be met for such a recovery mechanism to succeed. He gives a real-life war story of a 2015 Q4 outage to demonstrate how this approach can turn the threat of a nasty disruption into a harmless, routine event.
