Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video Making sense of it all, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions (2017).
- [Instructor] Okay, let's tie things together,…let's make sense of things.…So ultimately this is about…thinking about the meta-architecture…versus the micro-architecture piece, so keep that in mind.…As we make sense of this,…and this is about working from…the larger, more abstract architecture,…called the meta-architecture or logical architecture,…down to the more detailed architecture,…the micro-architecture,…we can call that the physical architecture.…So this is how we approach tying this thing together.…Very important that we understand this.…
So the idea is to take data, processing, management,…performance, that we just talked about, security governance,…and that really kind of equals the cloud architecture…that we're looking at.…So, ultimately this is about looking at the larger picture…versus getting down in the details…of how these things are going to be configured.…So, we have a tendency as technologists…to focus on the details around the technology,…and I don't think you can do that as an architect.…
This course is targeted at IT professionals who have a basic understanding of the cloud and are ready to move on to creating a cloud architecture. David Linthicum begins with the business case and requirement patterns, and then moves onto mapping requirements to individual architecture concepts. There are multiple aspects to consider: storage, processing, governance, management and monitoring, security, performance, and more. David also includes discussion of advanced topics such as serverless architectures and containers. Watch and learn how to make sense of today's requirements, and plan your cloud-based architecture to scale with what your company needs to succeed tomorrow.
