Cloud Native Security Cookbook
With the rise of the cloud every aspect of IT has been shaken to its core. The fundamentals for building systems are changing, and although many of the principles that underpin security still ring true, their implementation has become unrecognizable. This practical book provides recipes for AWS, Azure, and GCP to help you enhance the security of your own cloud native systems.
Based on his hard-earned experience working with some of the world's biggest enterprises and rapidly iterating startups, consultant Josh Armitage covers the trade-offs that security professionals, developers, and infrastructure gurus need to make when working with different cloud providers. Each recipe discusses these inherent compromises, as well as where clouds have similarities and where they're fundamentally different.
Learn how the cloud provides security superior to what was achievable in an on-premises world; Understand the principles and mental models that enable you to ma ...

This book is a comprehensive guide that examines using Pulsar Java libraries to build distributed applications with message-driven architecture.
You'll begin with an introduction to Apache Pulsar architecture. The first few chapters build a foundation of message-driven architecture. Next, you'll perform a setup of all the required Pulsar components. The book also covers work with Apache Pulsar client library to build producers and consumers for the discussed patterns.
You'll then explore the transformation, filter, resiliency, and tracing capabilities available with Pulsar. Moving forward, the book will discuss best practices when building message schemas and demonstrate integration patterns using microservices. Security is an important aspect of any application; the book will cover authentication and auth ...
Introducing Microsoft Orleans
Welcome to Orleans, a virtual actor framework from Microsoft that allows a single developer to create immensely scalable, available applications while maintaining a high throughput. This guide is designed to give you a foundational understanding of Orleans, an overview of its implementations, and plenty of hands-on coding experience. Side-by-side monolithic and microservice patterns alongside Orleans' framework features are also discussed, to help readers without an actor model background understand how they can enhance applications.
Author Nelson's approach is to introduce patterns as needed for business requirements, including monolithic microservices and to convert monolithic to microservices, in order to keep a microservice from growing into a monolithic application. Orleans is a good choice for either of these scenarios as the next step to build your backend services and reduce unnecessary orchestration, overhead, and tooling.
The Orleans framework was designed to handle ted ...
Payara Micro Revealed
Develop, configure, and deploy Java cloud-native applications using Payara Micro. This book demystifies Java cloud-native application development using standard Microprofile APIs and covers Payara-specific features such as automatic clustering and application initialization performance improvements. You will learn how to improve startup performance by taking advantage of class data sharing, and configure cloud-native applications via standard development tools such as Maven and Gradle. The book also clarifies how to develop functionality necessary in a cloud environment, such as health checks and request tracing, using MicroProfile APIs.
The book begins by showing how to develop microservices using RESTful web services, followed by how to create microservice clients using MicroProfile and the REST client API. Dependency Injection via Jakarta Context and Dependency Injection (CDI) is also covered. Various approaches to application configuration are covered as well, including p ...
Consul: Up and Running
With the advent of microservices, Kubernetes, public cloud and hybrid computing, site reliability and DevOps engineers are facing more complexity than ever before. Service mesh is an exciting new technology that promises to help tackle this complexity. A service mesh provides you with a unified control plane to manage application networking across these distinct platforms.
With this definitive guide, you'll learn how to automate networking for simple and secure application delivery with Consul.
Author Luke Kysow, Consul engineer at HashiCorp, demonstrates how this service mesh solution provides a software-driven approach to security, observability, reliability, and traffic management. Once you learn how to deploy Consul on multiple platforms, you'll be able to take control of application traffic, prevent outages, view metrics, integrate with legacy systems, and more.
Dive into the characteristics of service meshes, zero trust networking, and traffic-shaping patterns; De ...
