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.

The unique values of this book

The truth is that there are many other books about architecting cloud solutions. You'll also find a lot of online articles on the subject (as further shown by the architecture solutions we have listed in this chapter). However, in this book, Stephane has brought to life his unique map-based approach to exploring and learning Azure architectures. Based on our success in community and the community's response to his architectures, we believe this unique approach helps bring the architectures to life.

When we first put this book together, we thought of a few unique qualities that we think make this book stand out. Although you've read the book, understanding these qualities might help refresh your memory, as you refer back to certain chapters and sections in the book. Likewise, you could spend a good amount of time browsing and reviewing the online resources and the map/diagram files that we have for you. Thus, as you continue to leverage...
