Cloud Native Architectures

By: Tom Laszewski, Kamal Arora, Erik Farr, Piyum Zonooz

Overview of this book

Cloud computing has proven to be the most revolutionary IT development since virtualization. Cloud native architectures give you the benefit of more flexibility over legacy systems. To harness this, businesses need to refresh their development models and architectures when they find they don’t port to the cloud. Cloud Native Architectures demonstrates three essential components of deploying modern cloud native architectures: organizational transformation, deployment modernization, and cloud native architecture patterns. This book starts with a quick introduction to cloud native architectures that are used as a base to define and explain what cloud native architecture is and is not. You will learn what a cloud adoption framework looks like and develop cloud native architectures using microservices and serverless computing as design principles. You’ll then explore the major pillars of cloud native design including scalability, cost optimization, security, and ways to achieve operational excellence. In the concluding chapters, you will also learn about various public cloud architectures ranging from AWS and Azure to the Google Cloud Platform. By the end of this book, you will have learned the techniques to adopt cloud native architectures that meet your business requirements. You will also understand the future trends and expectations of cloud providers.

Automation in Azure (CNMM Axis-3)

The entire concept of the public cloud is based on the premise that you can easily utilize and integrate the cloud services using APIs, SDKs, and REST web services. Another layer to this paradigm is the higher-level automation and orchestration services that cloud providers have created, which make it even easier to leverage the true power of cloud with less human intervention and thereby enable self-healing, autoscalable applications. Apart from this, developers can now assume greater responsibility to manage the full stack of their application environment on their own rather than have a separate ops team that they had to rely on earlier. This enables rapid releases, faster time to market, and increased agility in the application development lifecycle. As we discussed in the previous chapter, AWS offers services such as Amazon CloudFormation, AWS CodePipeline, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodeDeploy to enable these practices and culture, so in a very similar...
