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.

Tagging best practices

For large enterprises or small startups alike, tagging is the most critical daily activity to be performed in order to enable cost transparency. CSPs can report and display billing transparently, but those charges will mean little to the business or end users if they can't allocate or track costs to key business functions.

Tagging is a native function supported by all leading CSPs and supports customization. Since each business, organization, and consumer has unique internal processes and terminology, it is important to develop a tagging strategy that works for you.


Cloud Native Architecture Best Practice: Tagging will very quickly become burdensome and impossible to maintain if tags are not designated at launch time. Within a couple of weeks, the entire environment can be untagged (and thus impossible to manage) if development life cycles are short enough. A cloud native cost optimized environment automatically detects (and even deletes) resources that aren't tagged...
