Modern Architecture Trends?

Keeping up with the latest architecture trends and concepts is daunting

CTOs continue to see the inevitable migration to the cloud. Concerns about security, reliability, and cost continue to drive these decisions, while architecture frameworks, concepts, and abstractions are becoming harder to keep up with.

  • New and evolving architectures like serverless architectures and shared nothing architectures
  • New services like BaaS (“Backend-as-a-Service”), FaaS (“Functions-as-a-Service”), CaaS (Containers-as-a-Service), EaaS (“Environment-as-a-Service”), and VaaS (“Virtualization-as-a-Service”.)
  • Ongoing improvements to Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment
  • Ongoing refinements to container orchestration systems

In this issue of The Dev Digest, we explore ideas on how to digest, evaluate, and embrace some of these new concepts and technologies to increase what we want most: a reliable, scalable, secure and cost effective technology architecture.

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, articles and podcasts about building more resilient technology organizations:

Serverless Architectures

By Martin Fowler
Incorporating “Backend as a Service” (BaaS) services and/or custom code run in managed containers on a “Functions as a Service” (FaaS) platform, traditional always-on server components may be eliminated. Serverless architectures reduce cost and complexity but increase reliance on vendor dependencies.


Retrospective and Software Trends for 2020

By InfoQ
With the start of a New Year, and a new decade, it is a good time to reflect on the important shifts we have seen in software development and to consider what they mean for you in 2020 and beyond

AWS Well-Architected Framework

The AWS Well-Architected Framework defines the pros and cons of decisions while building systems on AWS. The Framework includes architectural best practices for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective systems in the cloud.

We are currently engaged with some of our clients in helping them find their way into new architecture models. Let us know if you would like to discuss any of these topics in more detail as you continue to strengthen your technology infrastructure.

MangoChango’s engineers are experts in a wide variety of technologies, frameworks, tools, and languages with an emphasis on continuous learning as new thinking, tools, and techniques come to market.
