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.

The working mechanism of quantum computers

You learned about qubits in the previous section. Now, to build quantum computers, physical qubits are built in a lab, and the quantum computer has an area that houses the qubits.

The unit that houses the qubits is kept at a temperature just above absolute zero to maximize the qubits' coherence and reduce interference. The low temperature helps to stabilize and control the qubits. A vacuum chamber can also be used to help minimize vibrations and stabilize the qubits. Signals can be sent to the qubits by using various methods, including microwaves, lasers, and voltage.

You must be wondering how quantum computers run so fast. A quantum computer runs so fast because it tries all answers to a problem in parallel. Is that true? Well, not really, not in the sense that multiple calculations are all happening in parallel universes. That said, qubits can hold 0 and 1 values at the same time using superposition, and let them influence...
