Temporal: Build Invincible Apps

Temporal is a perfect fit for orchestrating microservices.

It guarantees that workflow code eventually completes, has built-in support for exponential activity retries, and simplifies the coding of the compensation logic with native Saga pattern support.

You can define retries, rollbacks, or even a human intervention step in the case of failure. Workflows are defined in general-purpose programming languages that bring the ultimate flexibility especially when compared to text-based DSL engines.

Temporal provides full visibility into each workflow’s state. Contrast this with ad-hoc orchestration based on queues where getting a current status of each request is virtually impossible.
