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 services

Cloud providers have a lot of services, and innovation is accelerating; therefore, understanding how to choose the right service to solve business problems can be a tough prospect. The large cloud providers have designed their services to be like building blocks that can be used together to solve problems that may never have been considered for that specific service. This approach allows customer design teams to be creative and think outside the box with experimentation and fail fast projects. The key is to have a good understanding of what services are actually available. Foundational infrastructure services, once the growth drivers of the cloud, have matured to a state where they are often decided on by default. Setting up landing zones with specific networking addresses, subnets, security groups, and routes is done with Infrastructure as Code, using a consistent and approved model. However, there are still some important foundational considerations, specifically regarding...
