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.

Types of quantum computers

As you learned in the previous section, there are two QC paradigms. The first is gate-based using quantum computers, with fewer, higher-quality qubits for general-purpose devices. Most quantum computers are gate-based, such as Rigetti and IonQ.

The second QC paradigm involves quantum annealers with many qubits built for special purposes. D-Wave-built quantum computers are based on quantum annealing. D-Wave provides quantum computers of up to 2,000 qubits. Let's look at some quantum computers based on the different types of particles used:

  • Trapped Ions: The first quantum logic gate was demonstrated in 1995 using trapped atomic ions. It uses two internal states of ions, whose positions are controlled with electric fields in "ion traps" as their fundamental quantum element. The state of each ion can be changed using controlled microwave radiation. These pulses can be arranged to couple the states of two or more ions to create entanglement...
