Overview of this book

Becoming a solutions architect gives you the flexibility to work with cutting-edge technologies and define product strategies. This handbook takes you through the essential concepts, design principles and patterns, architectural considerations, and all the latest technology that you need to know to become a successful solutions architect. This book starts with a quick introduction to the fundamentals of solution architecture design principles and attributes that will assist you in understanding how solution architecture benefits software projects across enterprises. You'll learn what a cloud migration and application modernization framework looks like, and will use microservices, event-driven, cache-based, and serverless patterns to design robust architectures. You'll then explore the main pillars of architecture design, including performance, scalability, cost optimization, security, operational excellence, and DevOps. Additionally, you'll also learn advanced concepts relating to big data, machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Finally, you'll get to grips with the documentation of architecture design and the soft skills that are necessary to become a better solutions architect. By the end of this book, you'll have learned techniques to create an efficient architecture design that meets your business requirements.

Code deployment

Once your build is ready, you can use the Jenkins server for deployment or choose AWS CodeDeploy as a cloud-native managed service. You can use other popular tools such as Chef or Puppet to create a deployment script. The options for specifying a deployment configuration are as follows:

  • OneAtATime: Only a single instance in a deployment group at a time installs a new deployment. If a deployment on a given instance fails, the deployment script will halt the deployment and return an error response detailing the number of successful versus the number of failed installations.
  • HalfAtATime: Half of the instances in the deployment group install a new deployment. The deployment succeeds if half of the instances successfully install the revision. HalfAtATime can again be a good option for production/test environments where half of the instances are updated to a new revision, and the other half remain available in production at an older revision.
  • AllAtOnce: Each instance installs...
