As so many enterprises confidently add an “s” to their “year” of experience in cloud computing, some traditional IT architecture concepts are beginning to pop back up. These concepts can make or break a cloud deployment, but they’re largely forgotten by those who design, build, and deploy today’s cloud computing systems. How did this happen?
Two factors: First, many architecture certification courses from specific cloud providers leave out a lot of generalized, basic architecture training. Second, many modern tools remove the need to think through the details that surround a cloud architecture solution.
