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

In this chapter, you learned about the various architecture design principles that impact the performance of applications. You learned about latency and throughput at different layers of architecture and how they relate to each other.

For highly performant applications, you need to have low latency and high throughput at every architecture layer. Concurrency helps to process a large number of requests. You also learned the difference between parallelism and concurrency and gained insight into how caching can help to improve overall application performance.

Then you learned about choosing your technology and their working models, which can help achieve your desired application performance. While looking at the compute option, you learned about the various processor types and their differences to help you make the right choice when selecting server instances. You learned about containers and how they can help you to utilize the resources efficiently and at the same...
