This comprehensive guide helps developers and architects understand current cloud-native technologies, with recommendations that explain when you need to use each one. Authors Boris Scholl, Trent Swanson, and Peter Jausovec describe the patterns you need for building cloud-native applications, and provide best practices for the most common tasks such as messaging, eventing, and DevOps.
This practical book also delivers an architectural blueprint for a modern cloud-native application. You'll learn about microservices, containers, serverless computing, storage types, data considerations, portability, and the use of functions.
- Differentiate between containers and functions, and understand when to use which technology
- Leverage Service Meshes to move complexity, such as distributed tracing and mutual TLS handshakes, away from the developer
- Use messaging and eventing as the glue for the cloud-native composite applications
- Handle state-in distributed applications
- Understand what makes your application portable
