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.

In this chapter, we focused on AWS and its capabilities based on the CNMM described earlier. So, in line with that, we focused on understanding the core AWS capabilities around building cloud-native architectures and effectively operating in your applications in that environment. We then dived deep into a sample serverless microservice application, leveraging various key AWS services and frameworks. Finally, we understood the principles around DevOps and DevSecOps and how those translated to various different application architectures ranging from deploying on Amazon EC2, Amazon Elastic Beanstalk, AWS Lambda, and the Amazon EC2 Container Service. Finally, we looked at migration patterns to move your applications to AWS and the concept of the 6Rs and the AWS CAF.

In the next chapter, we will focus on trying to understand the capabilities of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and how it compares to AWS.
