Cloud Architecture Design Patterns

In the previous chapter, we looked at some key elements that make up a scalable and highly available cloud solution. In this chapter, we will focus on design patterns related to virtual networks (VNets), storage accounts, performance, and messaging. These constructs affect how you implement your solution and, with enough attention to detail, can help you to gauge costs, efficiencies, and overall productivity properly. This chapter also outlines some best practices.

In this chapter, we’ll cover the following topics:

  • The importance of good architectural design
  • Azure Virtual Network design
  • Azure Storage design
  • Azure design patterns related to messaging
  • Solution design practices

Let us start by exploring the importance of good architectural design in cloud systems, outlining its key benefits and the principles underpinning a robust cloud architecture.
