I’ve added the following service discovery patterns:

  • Client-side discovery - client-side logic picks the service instance to send a request to
  • Server-side discovery - client sends a request to a router that picks the service instance to which to forward the request
  • Service registry - maintain a database of available service instances and their locations (host/port)
  • Self registration - service instance (un)registers itself with the service registry
  • 3rd party registration - a 3rd party (un)registers the service instance with the service registry
