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.

Building an n-tier layered architecture

In n-tier architecture (also known as multitier architecture), you need to apply the principle of loosely coupled design (refer to Chapter 4, Principles of Solution Architecture Design) and attributes of scalability and elasticity (refer to Chapter 3, Attributes of the Solution Architecture). In multilayer architecture, you divide your product functions into multiple layers, such as presentation, business, database, and services, so that each layer can be implemented and scaled independently.

With multitier architecture, it is easy to adopt new technologies and make development more efficient. This layered architecture provides the flexibility to add new features in each layer without disturbing the features of other layers. In terms of security, you can keep each layer secure and isolated from the others, so if one layer gets compromised, the other layers won't be impacted. Application troubleshooting and management also become manageable...
