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.

In this chapter, we dove deep into the third significant cloud provider, Google Cloud Platform, and after understanding its origins and evolution, we focused on differentiating services like Cloud AI, Kubernetes Engine, and G Suite. Post that, we understood the concepts around serverless microservices and actually created a sample weather service application, leveraging Google Cloud functions. That led us to the next section, which focused on automation and how Google Cloud Deployment Manager can be used to create repeatable templates for treating infrastructure as code. We also looked at options for implementing CI/CD patterns in serverless environments as well as Kubernetes-based containerized deployments. Finally, we explored various options to migrate existing on-premise applications and workloads using various Google Cloud Native services as well as partner offerings. With all of the aforementioned concepts, we have completed exploring the top three public cloud providers and...
