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.

In Chapter 12, Optimizing Observability, we learned that our serverless resources emit many useful metrics that we can use to monitor our systems. We learned how to turn all this data into actionable information, by categorizing it as resource or work metrics, so that teams have the confidence to experiment and fail forward fast.Now it is time for the last chapter. It is time to take everything you have learned and put micro frontends and the autonomous service patterns into action. But where do we start? How do we build momentum? What pitfalls lie ahead? How do we cross the cultural divide between the old and the new? This chapter will answer these questions now. But there will always be open questions. We can't let them delay us. We need to start experimenting.In this chapter, we're going to cover the following main topics:

  • Gaining trust and changing culture
  • Funding products, not projects
  • Dissecting the Strangler...
