  • Gain an actionable understanding of cloud architecture


The largest infrastructure paradigm change of the 21st century is the shift to the cloud. Companies now face the daunting challenge of how to leverage the cloud, and each company approaches this decision differently.

Join Jason Wang and Sushant Rao to gain an actionable understanding of cloud architecture and explore different approaches to the cloud. Jason and Sushant offer an overview of cloud architecture, then go into detail on core cloud paradigms like compute (virtual machines), cloud storage, authentication and authorization, and encryption and security. They conclude by bringing these concepts together through customer stories to demonstrate how real-world companies have leveraged the cloud for their big data platforms.
