Cloud computing has transformed the way we build and deliver software. Thanks to the cloud, you can trade expensive glass room datacenters and maintenance-greedy custom infrastructure for scalable virtual servers and easy-to-configure storage, security, and networking services! This brand-new world has some brand-new rules you need to know before you take your first steps, though.
Principles of Cloud Design is a collection of chapters from three Manning books, hand-picked by experienced author and Linux guru David Clinton. This free eBook highlights a few different ways where smart design feeds successful cloud deployments. You’ll explore the theory and practice behind high availability, scalability, and elasticity, master the art of decoupling, and even pick up hints on shaping your cloud deployment to precisely fit your needs. When you’re done, you’ll have the right mindset for cloud design and be ready for wherever your next project takes you!
