Overview of this book

Becoming a solutions architect requires a hands-on approach, and this edition of the Solutions Architect's Handbook brings exactly that. This handbook will teach you how to create robust, scalable, and fault-tolerant solutions and next-generation architecture designs in a cloud environment. It will also help you build effective product strategies for your business and implement them from start to finish. This new edition features additional chapters on disruptive technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), quantum computing, data engineering, and machine learning. It also includes updated discussions on cloud-native architecture, blockchain data storage, and mainframe modernization with public cloud. The Solutions Architect's Handbook provides an understanding of solution architecture and how it fits into an agile enterprise environment. It will take you through the journey of solution architecture design by providing detailed knowledge of design pillars, advanced design patterns, anti-patterns, and the cloud-native aspects of modern software design. By the end of this handbook, you'll have learned the techniques needed to create efficient architecture designs that meet your business requirements.

Components of IoT architecture

In the use cases mentioned in the previous section, organizations have many devices across multiple product lines. They needed an architecture to ingest various telemetry measures and attributes to support real-time consumption by users and service applications. At a high level, IoT architecture consists of three components, as shown in the following diagram:

Figure 15.1: IoT architecture cycle

As shown in the preceding diagram, the IoT architecture cycle has three elements:

  1. Managing IoT device software: To build IoT solutions, you need to deploy a large number of devices, ranging from thousands to millions. These devices should have the ability to generate the data required for the use case and perform an operation at the edge as required. The first thing you need to figure out is, how can I build devices that operate at the edge?
  2. Handling IoT device connectivity and control: Managing millions of devices and securing them...
