Migrating to Cloud Native Application Architectures
Free O'Reilly Microservices eBook
Adoption of cloud native application architectures is helping many organizations transform their IT into a force for true agility in the marketplace. This O’Reilly report defines the unique characteristics of cloud native application architectures such as microservices and twelve-factor applications.
Author Matt Stine also examines the cultural, organizational, and technical changes necessary to migrate traditional monolithic applications and service-oriented architectures to cloud native architectures. You’ll also find a Migration Cookbook, with recipes for decomposing monolithic applications into microservices, implementing fault-tolerant patterns, and performing automated testing of cloud native services.
This report discusses application architectures that include:
- The Twelve-Factor App: A collection of cloud native app architecture patterns
- Microservices: Independently deployable services that do one thing well
- Self-Service Agile Infrastructure: Platforms for rapid, repeatable, and consistent provisioning of app environments and backing services
- API-based Collaboration: Published and versioned APIs that allow interaction between services in a cloud native app architecture
- Anti-Fragility: Systems that get stronger when subjected to stress
