Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video Performance, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions.
- [Instructor] Now, let's talk about…some more advanced concepts.…First, performance.…So, performance within the domain of architecture,…in this case, cloud architecture,…is defined by the slowest component.…So, we all know that if we have a hurt leg,…we can't run as fast,…even though our arms are working…and our brain is working.…However, a leg needs to be working…at the ultimate potential…in order for us to run the fastest that we can.…Well, systems are very much like that.…We put very fast, even super-computers,…on very slow networks,…they're going to be slow.…
If we put an application that's very fast…and bind it to a very slow database,…it unto itself is going to be very slow.…So, you can model as well as test…for performance issues before production.…So, it's completely preventable…that we have some sort of performance issues,…even though most of the issues that I run into…around cloud computing…come in the form of performance problems.…Performance isn't just up to snuff,…they're looking for ways in which to boost performance,…
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.
