The Azure Cloud Native Architecture Mapbook

Overview of this book

Azure offers a wide range of services that enable a million ways to architect your solutions. Complete with original maps and expert analysis, this book will help you to explore Azure and choose the best solutions for your unique requirements. Starting with the key aspects of architecture, this book shows you how to map different architectural perspectives and covers a variety of use cases for each architectural discipline. You'll get acquainted with the basic cloud vocabulary and learn which strategic aspects to consider for a successful cloud journey. As you advance through the chapters, you'll understand technical considerations from the perspective of a solutions architect. You'll then explore infrastructure aspects, such as network, disaster recovery, and high availability, and leverage Infrastructure as Code (IaC) through ARM templates, Bicep, and Terraform. The book also guides you through cloud design patterns, distributed architecture, and ecosystem solutions, such as Dapr, from an application architect's perspective. You'll work with both traditional (ETL and OLAP) and modern data practices (big data and advanced analytics) in the cloud and finally get to grips with cloud native security. By the end of this book, you'll have picked up best practices and more rounded knowledge of the different architectural perspectives.

Manufacturing scenarios

Can the cloud help you improve, build, and deliver your product? Absolutely. To understand how, let's explore a few key scenarios. We'll explore infrastructure (using IoT Hub and Azure Blockchain Workbench), industrial IoT analytics, and some important AI manufacturing scenarios.

Supply chain track and trace

For the manufacturing industry, let's start with a blockchain solution that builds on the lessons learned in Chapter 3, Infrastructure Design. Supply Chain Track and Chase provides IoT-enabled monitoring for a supply chain. If you were going to transport refrigerated goods, then you'd likely have compliance rules to follow (and contractual conditions that must be met), such as a temperature and humidity range.
