1.1 About the Topic

A service registry is a centralized service used to dynamically register and locate server processes and microservices in distributed environments. It allows services to register themselves, maintaining names, configuration information, etc., and clients to discover and locate these services. That is, it decouples service providers from consumers without the need for DNS and enables client-side load-balancing.
