The Definitive Guide to Cloud Design and Architecture
Best-selling service technology author Thomas Erl has brought together the de facto catalog of design patterns for modern cloud-based architecture and solution design in the ebook Cloud Computing Design Patterns (ePub). More than 2 years in development, this ebook’s more than 100 patterns illustrate proven solutions to common cloud requirements and challenges. Its patterns are supported by rich, visual documentation, including more than 300 diagrams.
The authors address topics covering elasticity, scalability, resiliency, reliability, data management, recovery, virtualization, storage, provisioning, monitoring, administration, and much more. Readers will further find detailed coverage of cloud security, from storage and networking safeguards to identity systems, trust assurance, and auditing.
This ebook’s unprecedented technical depth makes it a must-have resource for every cloud technology architect, developer, administrator, solution designer, and manager.
