Hybrid Integration Reference Architecture
IT environments are becoming hybrid in nature; most businesses use cloud computing as part of their overall IT environment. While businesses continue to operate enterprise applications, processes, and systems of record on premises, they are rapidly developing cloud-native applications on cloud. The hybrid integration reference architecture describes an approach to connect components which are split across cloud and on-premises environments, or across public and private clouds -- even across different cloud providers.
This repository is also linked to the Event Driven Architecture repository where integration between microservices is supported by using event backbone and pub/sub integration pattern.
We recommend reading the full content using the book format here.
