Cloud computing is changing the way we design, deploy, and manage software systems. In addition to supporting today's business goals, the cloud's elastic capacity and pay-per-use cost model let us rapidly deliver new types of solutions that weren't practical just a few years ago.
This one-day course provides an architecture-centric introduction to cloud concepts and capabilities, targeting architects, managers, and technical leaders who want to quickly get up to speed on cloud computing and how it impacts their designs and development processes. This is a fast-evolving field, so we'll focus on enduring principles and how the fundamental characteristics of cloud computing impact system architectures. The material emphasizes Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas), as a way to understand how the cloud works, and includes discussion of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) models.
We'll begin with definitions and examples, and discuss the role of enabling technologies like virtualization and containerization. We'll look at tradeoffs involved in using cloud native services for storage, database, networking, and application integration. This all leads up to a discussion of quality attributes in the cloud, and how this impacts our architecture approaches.
Course attendees will get a better understanding of the issues when migrating legacy systems to the cloud, be able to identify opportunities to develop new cloud-based solutions to meet business goals, and understand the changes to architecture approaches and development processes needed to create successful cloud-based software systems.
