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.

IBM Design Thinking

IBM Design Thinking is described as a framework to solve problems in any domain at the speed and scale of the modern enterprise. The essential components of IBM Design Thinking practices are principles, keys, and the end-to-end loop.

Principles of IBM Design Thinking

There are three principles of the IBM Design Thinking framework:

  • Users’ needs are drivers for growth and metrics for success.
  • Relentless innovation to improve the user experience.
  • Diversity among development teams.

Users’ needs are drivers for growth and metrics for success

The user’s need is the focus of the product. Therefore, the number of features and the functionality released are not measured metrics for success; rather, user satisfaction and how well the user’s requirements are fulfilled is the definition of success. In this framework, developers should build their user story with a definition of done, reflecting how well requirements...
