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.

Summary

There are millions of small devices connected to the internet, referred to collectively as the IoT. In this chapter, you learned about IoT and the components of IoT architecture. IoT is all about processing unstructured telemetry data from sensors and machines in high volumes and at speed. To handle such data, you need to have a scalable system, and you learned about IoT in the cloud with examples from AWS IoT services.

Devices are one of the central points when it comes to building IoT solutions. You learned about two major types of device software, including an MCU and an MPU, and methods to ingest these devices' data. You learned about the various techniques for controlling IoT devices, including device authentication, a device registry, and device management at scale, as well as the AWS IoT Device Management service. Security is the most pressing job, and it applies to IoT devices as well; you learned about various mechanisms for managing and securing IoT devices...
