New book: Implementing Azure Cloud Design Patterns

I’ve spent few words some weeks ago for previewing these, but now it’s the time for an official announcement. I’m happy to present our last creation, the book “Implementing Azure Cloud Design Patterns“, edited by Packt Publishing:

B08058_cover

A well designed cloud infrastructure covers factors such as consistency, maintenance, simplified administration and development, reusability. It’s extremely important to choose the right architectural pattern as it has a huge impact on the quality of cloud-hosted services.

This book covers all Azure design patterns and functionalities to help you build your cloud infrastructure so it fits your system requirements.

The book initially covers design patterns that are focused on factors such as availability and data management/monitoring. Then the focus shifts to complex design patterns such as multitasking, improving scalability, valet keys and so on, with practical use cases. The book also supplies best practices to improve the security and performance of your cloud.

By the end of this book, you will thoroughly be familiar with the different design and architectural patterns available with Windows Azure and capable of choosing the best pattern for your system. Using a pattern (or at least thinking about it) is a recommended way of working when designing an enterprise cloud-based infrastructure.

The Table of Contents we’ve covered, with patterns and samples for every topics:

  1. AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MICROSOFT AZURE PLATFORM
  2. COMPUTE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT
  3. DATA STORING AND PROCESSING
  4. NETWORKING DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT
  5. AVAILABILITY
  6. PERFORMANCE AND SCALABILITY
  7. MONITORING AND TELEMETRY
  8. RESILIENCY
  9. IDENTITY AND SECURITY

This books comes after months of hard work and I hope it will be a pleasure to read for everyone, no matters your working background (Developers, IT Pro, Solutions Architects, consultants, cloud passionate and so on).

If you’re an NAV developer, remember that the cloud is the future and in this book you’ll find all the advanced topics you need to deploy a cloud-based infrastructure for the Microsoft’s ERP.

From now, one more book on the shelf and one less reason for not mastering the Azure cloud.

Where to find the book? As usually, it’s available in print and eBook format on the official Packt website, on Amazon or in the best IT libraries in your country.

Happy reading… 😉
