JavaScript Cloud Native Development Cookbook

By: John Gilbert

Overview of this book

Cloud-native development is a modern approach to building and running applications that leverages the merits of the cloud computing model. With cloud-native development, teams can deliver faster and in a more lean and agile manner as compared to traditional approaches. This recipe-based guide provides quick solutions for your cloud-native applications. Beginning with a brief introduction, JavaScript Cloud-Native Development Cookbook guides you in building and deploying serverless, event-driven, cloud-native microservices on AWS with Node.js. You'll then move on to the fundamental patterns of developing autonomous cloud-native services and understand the tools and techniques involved in creating globally scalable, highly available, and resilient cloud-native applications. The book also covers multi-regional deployments and leveraging the edge of the cloud to maximize responsiveness, resilience, and elasticity. In the latter chapters you'll explore techniques for building fully automated, continuous deployment pipelines and gain insights into polyglot cloud-native development on popular cloud platforms such as Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By the end of the book, you'll be able to apply these skills to build powerful cloud-native solutions.

Serving a single-page application from a CDN

In the Deploying a single-page application recipe, we covered the steps required to serve a single-page application from an S3 bucket. It is great fun to watch the light bulb turn on in an architect's mind when he or she realizes that such a simple deployment process can deliver so much scalability. Here is a recent quote from one of my customers—That's it? No really, that's it? In this recipe, we take this process one step further and demonstrate how easily we can add a CloudFront Content Delivery Network (CDN) layer in front of S3 to avail ourselves of even more valuable features.
