About the Author
From the Preface
What are cloud native applications? What makes them so appealing that the cloud native model is now considered not only for the cloud, but also for the edge? And, finally, how do you design and develop cloud native applications? These are all questions that will be answered throughout this book.
At the heart of cloud native applications are containers, functions, and data. There are many books out there focusing on each of these specific technologies. Cloud native applications use all of these technologies and take advantage of and exploit all of the benefits of the cloud. We, the authors, have seen many customers struggle to piece all of those technologies together to design and develop cloud native applications, so we decided to write a book with the goal to provide the foundational knowledge that enables developers and architects alike to get started with designing cloud native applications.
This book starts by laying down the foundation for the reader to understand the basic principles of distributed computing and how they relate to cloud native applications, as well as providing a closer look at containers and functions.
Further, it covers service communication patterns, resiliency, and data patterns as well as providing guidance on when to use what. The book concludes by explaining the DevOps approach, portability considerations, and a collection of best practices that we have seen to be useful in successful cloud native applications.
The book is not a step-by-step implementation guide for building cloud native applications for a specific set of requirements. After reading this book, you should have the understanding and knowledge to help design, build, and operate successful cloud native applications. Tutorials are great for working through very specific needs, but a fundamental understanding of building cloud native applications provides teams with the necessary skills to ship successful cloud native applications.
