Fan-out Sidekiq Jobs to Manage Large Workloads

Performing a resilient operation on bulk data can be challenging, especially if the operation relies on a third party. You can safely do this by fanning out the work to idempotent background jobs that operate on only one piece of data at a time. Those jobs can retry independently as needed, making the entire operation more easy to manage. This post will show an example of how that works and why you might want to use this pattern.Fanning out is a way to perform work in parallel batches instead of inside a loop. Executing an operation this way provides more control and more resilience. Doing this well requires a combination of both job and database design.
