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 this chapter, you learned why it is important to create an anti-corruption layer between your system and external systems, so that changes in external systems have minimal impact on the internals of your system. You learned about the ESG pattern and how to use it to integrate with other systems.We dug into the many variations on the ESG pattern, and you learned how to handle ingress and egress flows with third-party and legacy systems, how to create a system topology of autonomous subsystems, and how to integrate across cloud providers. You also learned how to tackle common data challenges.In the next chapter, we will cover the Control Service pattern and see how it facilitates collaboration between BFF and ESG services. We will look at variations for orchestration, complex event processing, event sourcing, compensation, and more.
