EA Series – Episode 20: Chunk Cloud Computing

In this article Jimmy Nilsson (editor of InfoQ) describes an architectural style that he has observed slowly growing in popularity over the last few years, a style that he calls Chunk Cloud Computing and provides an in-depth trend analysis, with hand drawn illustrations (literally!)

Nilsson summarizes the style like this:

Before: Focus on layering
Now: More focus on partitioning

Before: Focus on loose coupling
Now: A balance (include high cohesion)

Before: Huge teams
Now: Extremely small teams

Before: Integration database
Now: Application databases

Nilsson’s article is a review of this decade’s trends in software architecture, the lessons learned and a conclusion on the current status. It would be great to see a follow up article with examples! Read the article here: http://www.infoq.com/articles/CCC-Jimmy-Nilsson
