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.

Chapter 12. What's Next? Cloud Native Application Architecture Trends

In the previous chapters, we learned about multiple different aspects, starting from the core definition of the Cloud Native Maturity Model (CNMM), then peeling back different layers, and finally trying out various cloud providers hands-on. In this chapter, we are going to focus on a bunch of newer things, including looking at the future and talking about a few predictions!

Here are some of the areas we will focus on:

  • Top seven predictions for the next three years – what to expect in terms of the evolution of cloud native architectures
  • The future of enterprises on the cloud
  • New IT roles that will possibly evolve (such as an AI Officer)

These topics will help you learn the following skills:

  • Understanding the trends to future-proof your strategies and architectures
  • Areas of growth and evolution in your personal career

So, let's dive right in!
