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 the Google Cloud Platform (CNMM Axis-3)

As discussed in previous chapters as well, automation is one of the key aspects when looking at optimally deploying and managing your applications in cloud. So in line with this, Google Cloud apart from offering many services which help automate processes and workflows, also has a rich set of APIs and SDKs. In fact, based on developer's individual preferences there are multiple options for SDK client libraries, including Java, Python, NodeJS, Ruby, Go, .Net and PHP, that provide flexibility and ease of automation and integration. So in the upcoming section, let's explore this further and look at various options for automation and DevOps implementations.

Infrastructure as code

Google Cloud offers a service that is very similar to AWS CloudFormation, called Google Cloud Deployment Manager, using which infrastructure components can be easily authored in a declarative fashion (YAML) to automate various provisioning and automation-related tasks...
