Location: 1E 07/08

Who is this presentation for?

Directors responsible for moving big data platforms to the cloud; Developers, software and infrastructure architects responsible for the underlying work




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.

In this talk we’ll give you actionable understanding of cloud architecture and different approaches real-world customer took in their journey to the cloud. We set the stage with an overview of the different ways we’ve seen customers be successful in the cloud. Then we deep dive into the decisions they made, and how that drove their cloud architecture. Along the way we review problems they overcame, lessons learned, and core cloud paradigms like compute, HDFS vs cloud storage, Cloud Native Architectures, etc.
