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.
