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.

Creating a microservice architecture

Often, microservices are architected in REST-style web services and are independently scalable. This makes it easier to expand or shrink the relevant components of your system while leaving the rest untouched. A system that employs microservices can more easily withstand incidents where application availability can degrade gracefully to avoid any cascading failures. Your system becomes fault-tolerant, that is, built with failure in mind.

The clear advantage of microservices is that you have to maintain a smaller surface area of code. Microservices should always be independent. You can build each service with no external dependencies where all prerequisites are included, which reduces the inter-dependency between application modules and enables loose coupling.

The other overarching concept of microservices is bounded contexts, which are the blocks that combine together to make a single business domain. A business domain could be something...
