Let’s Architect! Architecting for big data workloads

Big data is often defined by 3 Vs: greater variety, volumes, and velocity. Because of the three Vs, big data poses data management challenges that cannot be solved with traditional databases. Not only that, but trying to overcome these issues can lead to scaling problems, bottlenecks, and spiraling costs. To help with this, you need to […]

Let’s Architect! Creating resilient architecture

The AWS Well-Architected Framework defines resilience as “the capability to recover when stressed by load (more requests for service), attacks (either accidental through a bug, or deliberate through intention), and failure of any component in the workload’s components.” The need for resilient workloads transcends all customer industries, but it can often can be misunderstood, which […]

With open-source technology, authors make software available to the public, who can view, use, or change it and add new features or support new capabilities. Open-source technology promotes collaboration across different teams, organizations, and people because the process often includes different perspectives and ideas, which typically results a stronger solution. It can be difficult to […]

Let’s Architect! Architecting microservices with containers

Microservices structure an application as a set of independently deployable services. They speed up software development and allow architects to quickly update systems to adhere to changing business requirements. According to best practices, the different services should be loosely coupled, organized around business capabilities, independently deployable, and owned by a single team. If applied correctly, […]
