Tensegrity or Tensional Integrity is also known in layman words as Floating Compression. In engineering field, it is the science of building a structure of isolated "compressed components" like bars that connected by "pre-stressed tensioned loose components" like cables or tendons. Any disturbance to a component in the assembly not just alters but brings down the entire structure.
I have voiced openly against startups going micro-services first architecture during my consulting days. I still warn them. I am a big advocate for monolith first and then tearing it down into microservices, after you got your domain modelling right and have well defined bounded context. And when you do break it down into microservices, it gives you enough leeway to accommodate your learnings from your short-comings in building distributed architectures. Tensegrity is the very basic thing, that you should watch out for and solve in your engineering microservices architecture by not re-inventing the wheel but by making use of available libraries that resolve these kind of issues.
Remember this as you refactor your monolithic architecture to microservices one,
Moving from monolithic architecture to microservices architecture is shifting complexity from your application to orchestration. Know your strengths and find your balance.
