The current work provides CIOs, software architects, project
managers, developers, and cloud strategy initiatives with a set of
architectural patterns that offer nuggets of advice on how to
achieve common cloud computing-related goals. The "cloud computing
patterns" capture knowledge and experience in an abstract format
that is independent of concrete vendor products. Readers are
provided with a toolbox to structure cloud computing strategies and
design cloud application architectures. By using this book
cloud-native applications can be implemented and best suited cloud
vendors and tooling for individual usage scenarios can be selected.
The "cloud computing patterns" offer a unique blend of academic
knowledge and practical experience due to the mix of authors.
Academic knowledge is brought in by Christoph Fehling and Professor
Dr. Frank Leymann who work on cloud research at the University of
Stuttgart. Practical experience in building cloud applications,
selecting cloud vendors, and designing enterprise architecture as a
cloud customer is brought in by Dr. Ralph Retter who works as an IT
architect at T Systems, Walter Schupeck, who works as a Technology
Manager in the field of Enterprise Architecture at Daimler AG, and
Peter Arbitter, the former head of T Systems cloud architecture and
IT portfolio team and now working for Microsoft.
"Voices on Cloud Computing Patterns"
Cloud computing is especially beneficial for large companies
such as Daimler AG. Prerequisite is a thorough analysis of its
impact on the existing applications and the IT architectures.
During our collaborative research with the University of Stuttgart,
we identified a vendor-neutral and structured approach to describe
properties of cloud offerings and requirements on cloud
environments. The resulting Cloud Computing Patterns have
profoundly impacted our corporate IT strategy regarding the
adoption of cloud computing. They help our architects, project
managers and developers in the refinement of architectural
guidelines and communicate requirements to our integration partners
and software suppliers.
Dr. Michael Gorriz CIO Daimler AG
Ever since 2005 T-Systems has provided a flexible and reliable
cloud platform with its Dynamic Services . Today these cloud
services cover a huge variety of corporate applications, especially
enterprise resource planning, business intelligence, video, voice
communication, collaboration, messaging and mobility services. The
book was written by senior cloud pioneers sharing their technology
foresight combining essential information and practical
experiences. This valuable compilation helps both practitioners and
clients to really understand which new types of services are
readily available, how they really work and importantly how to
benefit from the cloud.
Dr. Marcus Hacke Senior Vice President, T-Systems International
This book provides a conceptual framework and very timely
guidance for people and organizations building applications for the
cloud. Patterns are a proven approach to building robust and
sustainable applications and systems. The authors adapt and extend
it to cloud computing, drawing on their own experience and deep
contributions to the field. Each pattern includes an extensive
discussion of the state of the art, with implementation
considerations and practical examples that the reader can apply to
their own projects.
By capturing our collective knowledge about building good cloud
applications and by providing a format to integrate new insights,
this book provides an important tool not just for individual
practitioners and teams, but for the cloud computing community at
