Performance Considerations

In this era of fast internet, users expect very high-performance applications. There have been experiments that show that every second of application load delay causes a significant loss in an organization's revenue. Therefore, the application's performance is one of the most critical attributes of solution design that can impact your product adoption growth.

In the previous chapter, you learned about various solution architecture design patterns that can be used to solve a complex business problem. In this chapter, you will understand the best practices to optimize your application for optimal performance. You will learn various design principles that you can use to optimize the solution architecture's performance. Here, performance needs to be optimized at every layer and in every component of the architecture.

You will understand how to choose the right technology at various layers of your architecture to improve your application...
