It is an easy book to read or use as a reference. There are groups of related chapters, the first providing intuition behind one or more patterns followed by chapters dealing with each pattern in terms of context, impact and mechanism. Many side-bar style notes provide practical tips.
Each chapter presents an example of the pattern discussed using an application built on Microsoft Windows Azure. Don't be mislead by the latter, this book deals with patterns in a very general manner. All the leading cloud platforms (Amazon Elastic Cloud, Google App Engine, Sales Force and MS Azure) are included in the discussion of each pattern. It is not a book about Microsoft Azure per-say but does use it to clarify theoretical content.
With its complete collection of patterns and insightful discussion, this book is a great resource to all architects moving into the Cloud-Native paradigm.
Let’s start with the title: the title says these 200 pages are about cloud infrastructure patterns. This isn’t exactly true and could lead someone into believing that he gets something that he will not. If you do expect a problem:solution(s) book to common cloud issues, indeed, you will get disappointed. This title does not get you through cloud design challenges that you might face. It does, instead, give you guidelines, best practices that have proven successful in the development of cloud native applications.
What the author does is to present the very basic concepts that better describe a cloud native application, such as scaling in and out, eventual consistency and asynchronous communication, just to mention a couple. Two years later, and after getting through it three times, I would in fact rename this title into Introduction to cloud native application design.
The topics are accurately described, often supported with real life examples. Through the book, the author illustrates how the different concepts apply to an hypothetic (does it exist?) cloud web application called Page of Photos, hosted on Microsoft Azure.
I don’t remember seeing any schematic representation of the concepts explained, which is a big negative point. Some image appears here and there, but they do not really add any value to the reader.
My thoughts on this book definitely changed over the years: it’s a pretty decent book if you are new to the cloud and wanna get an overall idea of the best practices. It is a good starting point. But if you were already exposed to the cloud and its rules, then this book won’t give you anything.
As usual, you can find more reviews on my personal blog: http://books.lostinmalloc.com. Feel free to pass by and share your thoughts!
Definitely I would recommend this book for anyone new to cloud computing and want to understand the different design considerations. Though the sample pages of photo app is developed in Azure, we can easily correlate to other platforms like Amazon Web Services.
