Debugging Go Routine leaks

Before beginning with Debugging Goroutines leaks, let me give a small introduction of some fundamentals which will give you a broader perspective of the problem. Concurrent Programming. Concurrent programming deals with concurrent execution of a program wherein multiple sequential streams of execution run at a time resulting in faster execution of your computations.It helps in better utilization of multicore

Fast hashing in Golang using BLAKE2

In this blog we would like to present an optimized implementation, blake2b-simd , in pure Go for the BLAKE2 hashing algorithm that takes advantage of SIMD instructions. It gives up to a 4x speed increase over the (non-assembly) Go implementation and can achieve hashing speeds close to 1 GB/sec per core on high end CPUs. Compared to the standard SHA512

Microstorage for Microservices

Microstorage for Microservices

One of the fundamental requirements of microservice is that application containers become stateless. However the states still need to be stored elsewhere, as in databases, object storage, session files, cookies, cache, etc. Microstorage is emerging as a new architecture to address the storage scalability for microservices. Microstorage inherits the idea from microservices that “only small things scale”. Scale-up is not
