Every day, companies struggle to scale critical applications. As traffic volume and data demands increase, these applications become more complicated and brittle, exposing risks and compromising availability. With the popularity of software as a service, scaling has never been more important.
O’Reilly’s Architecting for Scale, recently updated with an expanded focus on modern architecture paradigms, is a practical guide that provides techniques for building systems that can handle huge quantities of traffic, data, and demand—without affecting the quality your customers expect. Architects, managers, and directors in engineering and operations organizations will learn how to build applications at scale that run more smoothly and reliably to meet the needs of customers.
Read the three free chapters to learn:
- Chapter 1: Understanding, Measuring, and Improving Availability – Learn what causes poor availability and five specific areas of focus for improving availability.
- Chapter 4: Services and Data – Learn the performance implications of partitioning data and how to handle growing pains.
- Chapter 12: Getting Started Architecting for Scale in the Cloud – This is a hands-on chapter with concrete steps you can take to begin building modern applications that scale.
