Nowadays is common have distributed systems, or some microservices oriented applications.
These have a lot positive points, for example is easy to scale up, partial deploy, isolate behavior and responsibilities.
And yes, it isn’t perfect. We have some concern points, like the challenge to perform integration tests and communication performance (for instance, when we have round-trips between APIs over HTTP protocol communication).
But if you are designing and implementing something like a microservice API, maybe some lean adjustments can be done to improve performance… nothing so much usual, but when you think about an API with a lot of users accessing simultaneously, it can make a significant difference.
