The Comprehensive, Proven Approach to IT Scalability–Updated with New Strategies, Technologies, and Case Studies In The Art of Scalability, Second Edition, leading scalability consultants Martin L. Abbott and Michael T. Fisher cover everything you need to know to smoothly scale products and services for any requirement. This extensively revised edition reflects new technologies, strategies, and lessons, as well as new case studies from the authors’ pioneering consulting practice, AKF Partners. Writing for technical and nontechnical decision-makers, Abbott and Fisher cover everything that impacts scalability, including architecture, process, people, organization, and technology. Their insights and recommendations reflect more than thirty years of experience at companies ranging from eBay to Visa, and Salesforce.com to Apple. You’ll find updated strategies for structuring organizations to maximize agility and scalability, as well as new insights into the cloud (IaaS/PaaS) transition, NoSQL, DevOps, business metrics, and more. Using this guide’s tools and advice, you can systematically clear away obstacles to scalability–and achieve unprecedented IT and business performance. Coverage includes • Why scalability problems start with organizations and people, not technology, and what to do about it • Actionable lessons from real successes and failures • Staffing, structuring, and leading the agile, scalable organization • Scaling processes for hyper-growth environments • Architecting scalability: proprietary models for clarifying needs and making choices–including 15 key success principles • Emerging technologies and challenges: data cost, datacenter planning, cloud evolution, and customer-aligned monitoring • Measuring availability, capacity, load, and performance

About This Book This book, "Managing Digital: Concepts and Practices", is intended to guide a practitioner through the journey of building a digital-first viewpoint and the skills needed to thrive in the digital-first world. As such, this book is a bit of an experiment for The Open Group; it isn’t structured as a traditional standard or guide. Instead, it is structured to show the key issues and skills needed at each stage of the digital journey, starting with the basics of a small digital project, eventually building to the concerns of a large enterprise. So, feel free to digest this book in stages — the section Introduction for the student is a good guide. The book is intended for both academic and industry training purposes. This book seeks to provide guidance for both new entrants into the digital workforce and experienced practitioners seeking to update their understanding on how all the various themes and components of IT management fit together in the new world. About The Open Group Press The Open Group Press is an imprint of The Open Group for advancing knowledge of information technology by publishing works from individual authors within The Open Group membership that are relevant to advancing The Open Group mission of Boundaryless Information Flow™.

Architect your .NET applications by breaking them into really small pieces - microservices -using this practical, example-based guide. Key Features Start your microservices journey and get a broader perspective on microservices development using C# 7.0 with .NET Core 2.0 Build, deploy, and test microservices using ASP.Net Core, ASP.NET Core API, and Microsoft Azure Cloud Get the basics of reactive microservices Book Description The microservices architectural style promotes the development of complex applications as a suite of small services based on business capabilities. This book will help you identify the appropriate service boundaries within your business. We'll start by looking at what microservices are and their main characteristics. Moving forward, you will be introduced to real-life application scenarios; after assessing the current issues, we will begin the journey of transforming this application by splitting it into a suite of microservices using C# 7.0 with .NET Core 2.0. You will identify service boundaries, split the application into multiple microservices, and define service contracts. You will find out how to configure, deploy, and monitor microservices, and configure scaling to allow the application to quickly adapt to increased demand in the future. With an introduction to reactive microservices, you’ll strategically gain further value to keep your code base simple, focusing on what is more important rather than on messy asynchronous calls. What you will learn Get acquainted with Microsoft Azure Service Fabric Compare microservices with monolithic applications and SOA Learn Docker and Azure API management Define a service interface and implement APIs using ASP.NET Core 2.0 Integrate services using a synchronous approach via RESTful APIs with ASP.NET Core 2.0 Implement microservices security using Azure Active Directory, OpenID Connect, and OAuth 2.0 Understand the operation and scaling of microservices in .NET Core 2.0 Understand the key features of reactive microservices and implement them using reactive extensions Who this book is for This book is for .NET Core developers who want to learn and understand the microservices architecture and implement it in their .NET Core applications. It’s ideal for developers who are completely new to microservices or just have a theoretical understanding of this architectural approach and want to gain a practical perspective in order to better manage application complexities.

This invaluable roadmap for startup engineers reveals how to successfully handle web application scalability challenges to meet increasing product and traffic demands. Web Scalability for Startup Engineers shows engineers working at startups and small companies how to plan and implement a comprehensive scalability strategy. It presents broad and holistic view of infrastructure and architecture of a scalable web application. Successful startups often face the challenge of scalability, and the core concepts driving a scalable architecture are language and platform agnostic. The book covers scalability of HTTP-based systems (websites, REST APIs, SaaS, and mobile application backends), starting with a high-level perspective before taking a deep dive into common challenges and issues. This approach builds a holistic view of the problem, helping you see the big picture, and then introduces different technologies and best practices for solving the problem at hand. The book is enriched with the author's real-world experience and expert advice, saving you precious time and effort by learning from others' mistakes and successes. Language-agnostic approach addresses universally challenging concepts in Web development/scalability—does not require knowledge of a particular language Fills the gap for engineers in startups and smaller companies who have limited means for getting to the next level in terms of accomplishing scalability Strategies presented help to decrease time to market and increase the efficiency of web applications
