Software Architecture Patterns for Serverless Systems - Second Edition

By: John Gilbert

Overview of this book

Organizations undergoing digital transformation rely on IT professionals to design systems to keep up with the rate of change while maintaining stability. With this edition, enriched with more real-world examples, you’ll be perfectly equipped to architect the future for unparalleled innovation. This book guides through the architectural patterns that power enterprise-grade software systems while exploring key architectural elements (such as events-driven microservices, and micro frontends) and learning how to implement anti-fragile systems. First, you'll divide up a system and define boundaries so that your teams can work autonomously and accelerate innovation. You'll cover the low-level event and data patterns that support the entire architecture while getting up and running with the different autonomous service design patterns. This edition is tailored with several new topics on security, observability, and multi-regional deployment. It focuses on best practices for security, reliability, testability, observability, and performance. You'll be exploring the methodologies of continuous experimentation, deployment, and delivery before delving into some final thoughts on how to start making progress. By the end of this book, you'll be able to architect your own event-driven, serverless systems that are ready to adapt and change.

Shared responsibility model

The security of our systems is of utmost importance. Yet there are countless stories of newsworthy data breaches. None of us want our systems to be in the headlines for this reason, but doing security right is hard. It is a complex, multidimensional, and multidisciplinary problem.

In our efforts to reduce lead times and increase our rate of innovation, market pressures may tempt us to cut corners that will come back to bite us. Fortunately, serverless and the cloud security shared responsibility model help us reduce lead times while also increasing security.

You may be thinking, how can we possibly do less, but achieve more? But we can achieve more by letting the cloud provider do the non-differentiating aspects of security. Then, we can re-focus our efforts on the security dimensions that far too often get the short end of the stick, such as redacting all the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) data.

The shared responsibility model essentially...
