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.

Cloud technology ecosystems

Consideration of the cloud ecosystem and how to leverage it is a critical step in the cloud native journey. There are three main areas to focus on when thinking about partners on this journey: cloud providers, ISV partners, and system integrators. Together, along with the company people going on the journey, they will make up the foundation of the people, processes, and technology used to transform the business with cloud computing.

Public cloud providers

This book is focused on public cloud providers, which, in the fullness of time, will most likely be the dominant way companies consume IT resources. The cloud, as it is today, began in 2006 when Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its first public services (Amazon Simple Queueing Service and Amazon Simple Storage Service). From there, they raced to add features at a very fast pace of innovation, with virtual server instances, virtual networking, block storage, and other foundational infrastructure services. In 2010...
