Cloud design patterns that support reliability

Click for: original source

When you design workload architectures, you should use industry patterns that address common challenges. Patterns can help you make intentional tradeoffs within workloads and optimize for your desired outcome. By ckittel and ShannonLeavitt.

They can also help mitigate risks that originate from specific problems, which can impact security, performance, cost, and operations. If not mitigated, those risks will eventually cause reliability issues.

Some of the patterns covered here:

  • Ambassador
  • Bulkhead
  • Cache-aside
  • Circuit breaker
  • Claim check
  • Compensating transaction
  • Event sourcing
  • Federated identity
  • Pipes and filters
  • Throttling
  • Geode

… and more. Many design patterns directly support one or more architecture pillars. Design patterns that support the Reliability pillar prioritize workload availability, self-preservation, recovery, data and processing integrity, and containment of malfunctions. Interesting read!
