Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure and Operations Explained

By: Mansura Habiba

Overview of this book

Most organizations are now either moving to the cloud through modernization or building their apps in the cloud. Hybrid cloud is one of the best approaches for cloud migration and the modernization journey for any enterprise. This is why, along with coding skills, developers need to know the big picture of cloud footprint and be aware of the integration models between apps in a hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure. This book represents an overview of your end-to-end journey to the cloud. To be future agnostic, the journey starts with a hybrid cloud. You'll gain an overall understanding of how to approach migration to the cloud using hybrid cloud technologies from IBM and Red Hat. Next, you’ll be able to explore the challenges, requirements (both functional and non-functional), and the process of app modernization for enterprises by analyzing various use cases. The book then provides you with insights into the different reference solutions for app modernization on the cloud, which will help you to learn how to design and implement patterns and best practices in your job. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to successfully modernize applications and cloud infrastructure in hyperscaler public clouds such as IBM and hybrid clouds using Red Hat technologies as well as develop secure applications for cloud environments.

Getting familiar with a developer’s mindset for cloud adoption

Developers are critical stakeholders for successful application migration and modernization projects. Therefore, a developer needs to adopt the following best practices for the right cloud adoption:

  • Code quality analysis: The target cloud solution needs to provide code quality and deployment quality analysis continuously.
  • Production-ready code deployment: Fully automated production-ready code deployment capabilities need to be present.
  • Continuous integration and delivery: These are core requirements for successful application migration and modernization. Each commit must be qualified by unit testing, integration testing, regression testing, code quality, dependency checking, vulnerabilities checking, and a peer review. Test-driven development can be very suitable for the best cloud migration project.
  • Strong DevOps practice: Developers need to follow standard DevOps and SRE practices. Multiple...
