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.
