2016 | ISBN-10: 1449373321 | 490 pages | PDF | 4 MB
Want to know how the best software engineers and architects structure their applications to make them scalable, reliable, and maintainable in the long term? This book examines the key principles, algorithms, and trade-offs of data systems, using the internals of various popular software packages and frameworks as example
Tools at your disposal are evolving and demands on applications are increasing, but the principles behind them remain the same. You’ll learn how to determine what kind of tool is appropriate for which purpose, and how certain tools can be combined to form the foundation of a good application architecture. You’ll learn how to develop an intuition for what your systems are doing, so that you’re better able to track down any problems that arise.
Data is at the center of many challenges in system design today. Difficult issues need to be figured out, such as scalability, consistency, reliability, efficiency, and maintainability. In addition, we have an overwhelming variety of tools, including relational databases, NoSQL datastores, stream or batch processors, and message brokers. What are the right choices for your application? How do you make sense of all these buzzwords?, In this practical and comprehensive guide, author Martin Kleppmann helps you navigate this diverse landscape by examining the pros and cons of various technologies for processing and storing data. Software keeps changing, but the fundamental principles remain the same. With this book, software engineers and architects will learn how to apply those ideas in practice, and how to make full use of data in modern applications., Peer under the hood of the systems you already use, and learn how to use and operate them more effectively, Make informed decisions by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of different tools, Navigate the trade-offs around consistency, scalability, fault tolerance, and complexity, Understand the distributed systems research upon which modern databases are built, Peek behind the scenes of major online services, and learn from their architectures
