The Azure Cloud Native Architecture Mapbook

By: Stéphane Eyskens, Ed Price

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.

Retail scenarios

Finally, we'll explore a robust library of architectures in the sister industry to manufacturing: retail. We'll start by browsing architectures that map back to Chapter 6, Data Architecture.

Retail and e-commerce Azure database architectures

First, let's browse some architectures that focus on database usage. All three scenarios are run through a browser that's built on Azure App Service (Web Apps). The logs and static catalog content are kept in Azure Storage. Then we have the main difference, whether the data catalog is organized in Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for PostgreSQL, or Azure Cosmos DB.
