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.

Summary

QC has a lot of potential to solve complex problems that even the most powerful supercomputers cannot solve. Now the world has started to build quantum computers and algorithms, yet we are just scratching the surface, and it may take another 5 to 10 years before we start realizing the commercial value.

In this chapter, you learned about QC and some real-life use cases where QC can be advantageous. QC is not the answer to every problem, and it is only applicable to complex calculations where classical computers won't work.

You learned about the key building block of the quantum computer, the qubit, and how multiple qubits work together in a state of superposition and entanglement to solve a complex problem. You learned about the working mechanism of the quantum computer and understood why they are faster than classical computers.

To perform operations on qubits, you learned about QC gates, such as Pauli and Hadamard gates, which apply to single qubits, and...
