Availability in a Cloud-native world. Guidelines for mere mortals


I present architectural methods, patterns and practices that are to be followed by developers, SREs and software architects when building and maintaining cloud-native applications and services that need to provide the highest levels of availability.

The methods describe how to provide true five nines (99.999%) for end to end business services by incorporating Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), DevOps, Microservices, Chaos Engineering, Cloud-native Architectures, Application Modernization, Multi-Availability Regions, Geo-dispersity, Data Consistency, Performance and Scalability, Content Delivery Networks (CDN), and Software-defined Environments (SDE).
