Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures
“Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures” is a comprehensive guide to the principles and practices of migrating traditional applications to cloud-native architectures. This book is written for individuals who want to learn about the process of migrating existing applications to cloud-native architectures and the fundamental concepts and technologies involved in doing so. It is intended for software developers, architects, and professionals who want to understand the benefits and challenges of cloud-native architectures and how to migrate their existing applications to take advantage of these benefits.
The book begins by introducing the reader to the basics of cloud-native application architectures, including the history of cloud computing and the different types of cloud-native architectures. It covers the different components of a cloud-native architecture, such as microservices, containers, and serverless, and how they interact to provide the scalability, availability, and flexibility that are the hallmarks of cloud-native architectures. The reader will learn about the different types of cloud platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, and how to choose the right platform for their migration project.
As the book progresses, it delves deeper into more advanced topics such as service discovery, load balancing, and security. The reader will learn about how to use service discovery mechanisms to locate and connect to services, how to use load balancing techniques to distribute traffic among multiple instances of a service, and how to implement security mechanisms to protect the services and data in the cloud-native architecture, it delves deeper into more advanced topics such as service discovery, configuration management, and monitoring. The reader will learn about how to implement service discovery to enable communication between microservices, how to manage configuration in a distributed environment, and how to monitor the health and performance of cloud-native applications.
The book “Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures also covers the latest trends and technologies in the field of cloud-native application development, such as Kubernetes and service meshes. The reader will learn about how Kubernetes can be used to orchestrate and manage containers
