Cloud Native Patterns: Designing change-tolerant software

Summary Cloud Native Patternsis your guide to developing strong applications that thrive in the dynamic, distributed, virtual world of the cloud. This book presents a mental model for cloud-native applications, along with the patterns, practices, and tooling that set them apart. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications. About the Technology Cloud platforms promise the holy grail: near-zero downtime, infinite scalability, short feedback cycles, fault-tolerance, and cost control. But how do you get there? By applying cloudnative designs, developers can build resilient, easily adaptable, web-scale distributed applications that handle massive user traffic and data loads. Learn these fundamental patterns and practices, and you'll be ready to thrive in the dynamic, distributed, virtual world of the cloud. About the Book With 25 years of experience under her belt, Cornelia Davis teaches you the practices and patterns that set cloud-native applications apart. With realistic examples and expert advice for working with apps, data, services, routing, and more, she shows you how to design and build software that functions beautifully on modern cloud platforms. As you read, you will start to appreciate that cloud-native computing is more about the how and why rather than the where. What's inside The lifecycle of cloud-native appsCloud-scale configuration managementZero downtime upgrades, versioned services, and parallel deploysService discovery and dynamic routingManaging interactions between services, including retries and circuit breakers About the Reader Requires basic software design skills and an ability to read Java or a similar language. About the Author Cornelia Davis is Vice President of Technology at Pivotal Software. A teacher at heart, she's spent the last 25 years making good software and great software developers.
