Eventarc uses the choreography pattern, which allows independent services to perform tasks when events are received. Workflows uses orchestration, and acts as a central orchestrator of the interactions between the services. You learn how Workflows, Eventarc, Cloud Tasks, and Cloud Scheduler can be used to build powerful microservices applications on Google Cloud.
