More about our book

How do you serve your customers faster, better, smarter? That’s an easy one: with Cloud Native technology, culture, and strategy. But how do you get started in moving your organisation toward the cloud? That’s not so easy—the choices are many, risk shadows every decision, and the complexity of the whole thing grows as you move forward.

Having an experienced guide can make a big difference. We have been helping our customers in a variety of industries move to the cloud since before Cloud Native had a name. We’ve distilled the lessons we’ve learned into a book, Cloud Native Transformation: Practical Patterns for Innovation (O’Reilly Media, 2020).

We are proud that our book is being used as a blueprint for Cloud Native transformation by real-life enterprises. You don’t need to be an engineer to understand it. It’s written as a survival kit for anyone whose organisation is thinking about how to reduce its risks and stay competitive in an uncertain business environment.

The book’s centerpiece is a library of more than 70 patterns, solutions that have worked for our clients. The patterns tackle the essential elements of Cloud Native: architecture, strategy, process, technology, and culture.

In addition to the patterns, the book contains:

  • What Cloud Native means, and how it reduces risk while speeding up product/service development.
  • The case for Cloud Native transformation.
  • The story of WealthGrid, a fictional company whose challenges may sound familiar.
  • What patterns are, how to use them, and how WealthGrid uses them to map its own Cloud Native journey.
  • How to proficiently deliver your core business while also innovating to beat your competition.
  • How to avoid common barriers and pitfalls along the way.
  • Detailed case studies from real-world companies that have gone Cloud Native—and thrived.


‘The people at Container Solutions think differently, don’t play it safe, and seem to have a lot of fun along the way,’ writes Adrian Cockcroft, noted cloud architect and engineer, in the book’s Foreword. ‘They’ve worked on some very interesting projects over the years, and this is an unusual book’.
