Achieving Digital Transformation Using Hybrid Cloud

By: Vikas Grover, Ishu Verma, Praveen Rajagopalan

Overview of this book

Hybrid cloud technology can be leveraged by organizations aiming to build next-gen applications while safeguarding prior technological investments. This book will help you explore different hybrid cloud architectural patterns, whether designing new projects or migrating legacy applications to the cloud. You'll learn about the key building blocks of hybrid cloud enabling you to deploy, manage, and secure applications and data while porting the workloads between environments without rebuilding. Further, you’ll explore Kubernetes, GitOps, and Layer 3/7 services to reduce operational complexity. You'll also learn about nuances of security and compliance in hybrid cloud followed by the economics of hybrid cloud. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the concepts with use cases from telecom 5G and industrial manufacturing, giving you a glimpse into real industry problems resolved by hybrid cloud, and unlocking millions of dollars of opportunities for enterprises. By the end of this book, you'll be well-equipped to design and develop efficient hybrid cloud strategies, lead conversations with senior IT and business executives, and succeed in hybrid cloud implementation or transformation opportunities.

Who this book is for

This book is written for architects, engineers, and developers in the telecom across different industry verticals and particularly the telecom industry who are navigating the complexities of using hybrid cloud to deploy solutions like 5G network. This comprehensive guide offers insights and practical design guidelines for adapting and deploying cloud native technologies such as service mesh and Kubernetes.

This book covers a wide range of topics related to hybrid cloud solutions, including the latest developments in the telecom industry like 5G rollouts. It provides real-world examples and best practices using use cases from telecom as well as other industries for designing and deploying successful hybrid cloud infrastructure. In addition, the book offers valuable insights into the challenges of building a hybrid cloud solution in a rapidly evolving technological landscape.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Adopting the Right Strategy for Building a Hybrid Cloud, provides an introduction to hybrid cloud, common misconceptions of hybrid cloud, and the 6-R Framework and its benefits, to address different kinds of workloads and tools for adopting hybrid cloud.

Chapter 2, Dealing with VMs, Containers, and Kubernetes, explains the different types of hypervisors, the anatomy of containers, different distributions of Kubernetes, and how they help with hybrid clouds.

Chapter 3, Provisioning Infrastructure with IaC, explains the methodologies to provision and operate the hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Chapter 4, Communicating across Kubernetes, focuses on communication design patterns and discusses technologies that operate at Layer 3 and Layer 7 that make distributed and decoupled applications working in different clusters work together.

Chapter 5, Design Patterns for Telcos and Industrial Sectors, discusses 5G Core, the 5G radio access network (RAN). We also talk about industrial edge patterns, operations support system (OSS)/business support system (BSS) patterns, and management solutions.

Chapter 6, Securing the Hybrid Cloud, explains core security principles and components of security in the hybrid cloud, network security, data protection, and compliance and governance.

Chapter 7, Hybrid Cloud Best Practices, explains overall best practices around implementing the appropriate architecture for the appropriate use case and goes into detail about developing the architecture based on hybrid cloud guidelines. It covers a range of topics from the economics to the pitfalls of the hybrid cloud.
