Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video What data and databases are needed?, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions (2017).
- [Instructor] Okay, now let's look at the applications…and compute platforms that are typically paired…with a database layer and a key part of the architecture…is picking the right database layer that's going to match…the way the applications need to use the database.…Now, if you're migrating from an existing, legacy platform…into the cloud, you find that those applications…are typically going to be bound to a database:…something like SQL Server or another specific database…and if that's the case then you have to pick a database…analog that exists in the cloud that's able to adhere…to the needs of that particular application…else that application will have to undergo changes.…
You have to change the database access layer,…the APIs to accommodate a different database.…So, lots of different things to think about, here,…when you deal with databases.…In some cases, if we're building net new…we're going to build with all cloud-based system, of course,…but, typically we're going to be migrating…applications into the cloud and part of the architecture…
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.
