Cloud Native Architectures

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.

Patterns for moving off from monolithic application architectures to Google cloud native architectures

As discussed in earlier sections, originally, our focus was mainly on greenfield applications and how to leverage cloud-native capabilities like serverless, containers, microservices architectures, CI/CD patterns, and so on. However, in typical enterprise environments, most customers already have significant investment in their existing on-premise or colocation environments, so those workloads also need to be moved to the cloud to benefit holistically. To enable the same, Google Cloud offers some native services as well as partner offerings which can be leveraged across various stages of migration. Broadly speaking, Google suggests four different phases in any migration project, which includes assessment, planning, network configuration, and replication.

For most the part, during the assessment and network configuration phases, the onus is on the customer to look at the appropriate tooling...
