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.

Associating a custom domain name with a CDN

In the Serving a single-page application from a CDN recipe, we covered the steps required to add a CloudFront CDN layer in front of S3 and avail ourselves of more valuable features. One of these features is the ability to associate a custom domain name with the resources served from the CDN, such as a single-page application or a cloud-native service. In this recipe, we will take the deployment process another step further and demonstrate how to add a Route53 record set and a CloudFront alias.

Getting ready

You will need a registered domain name and a Route53 hosted zone, which you can use in this recipe to create a subdomain for the SPA that will be deployed.
