Summary

In this chapter, you learned about the various solution architecture attributes that need to be considered while creating a solution design. You learned about two modes of scalability, vertical and horizontal, and how to scale various layers of the architecture, including the web layer, application servers, and databases.

You also learned how to apply elasticity to your workload using autoscaling so that it can grow and shrink on demand. This chapter also provided insights into designing a resilient architecture, and the methods used to achieve high availability. Furthermore, this helped you understand fault tolerance and redundancy so that you can make your application performant, as per your user's expectations, and plan for disaster recovery for the continuation of your business in the case of unforeseen events.

You then learned about the importance of making your architecture extendable and accessible and how architecture portability and interoperability help...
