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.

Choreographing Deployment and Delivery

In Chapter 10, Securing Autonomous Subsystems in Depth, we covered securing our cloud accounts and CI/CD pipelines. We secured the perimeter, the frontend, and our BFF and ESG services. In addition, we redacted sensitive data and saw how the shared responsibility model enables teams to focus their effort on business logic.

We will now turn our attention to the methodology of continuously building, testing, deploying, and delivering functionality to end users. In this chapter, we will focus on the best practices for keeping things from going wrong in the first place. You will learn how to choreograph the continuous deployment and delivery of services and applications with zero downtime and with the confidence that all the necessary checks and balances are in place.

In this chapter, we’re going to cover the following main topics:

  • Optimizing testing for continuous deployment
  • Focusing on risk mitigation
  • Achieving...
