Architecting Cloud Native Applications

More Information
  • Understand the difference between cloud native and traditional architecture
  • Automate security controls and configuration management
  • Minimize risk by evolving your monolithic systems into cloud native applications
  • Explore the aspects of migration, when and why to use it
  • Apply modern delivery and testing methods to continuously deliver production code
  • Enable massive scaling by turning your database inside out

Cloud computing has proven to be the most revolutionary IT development since virtualization. Cloud native architectures give you the benefit of more flexibility over legacy systems.

This Learning Path teaches you everything you need to know for designing industry-grade cloud applications and efficiently migrating your business to the cloud. It begins by exploring the basic patterns that turn your database inside out to achieve massive scalability. You’ll learn how to develop cloud native architectures using microservices and serverless computing as your design principles. Then, you’ll explore ways to continuously deliver production code by implementing continuous observability in production. In the concluding chapters, you’ll learn about various public cloud architectures ranging from AWS and Azure to the Google Cloud Platform, and understand the future trends and expectations of cloud providers.

By the end of this Learning Path, you’ll have learned the techniques to adopt cloud native architectures that meet your business requirements.
