Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video What processing is needed?, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions.
- [Instructor] Now let's move up to the compute layer,…a processing layer, CPUs, platform.…We need to understand the requirements of the application…and how it maps into cloud-based platforms.…And so, the nice thing again is when we deal…with cloud computing, we can configure any kind of platform…to meet the exact needs of the business,…exact needs of the application.…So we don't necessarily have to get…this right the first time.…However, it is a good idea to do some basic sizing…of the CPUs and memory footprints that you think…you're going to need as you move your applications…into the cloud.…
So what processing is needed?…We need to ask ourselves core questions…including platform requirements.…In other words, what do we need from the platform…by the application?…In other words, IO, physical disc storage,…local disc storage, memory utilization,…all those things need to be factored in.…There may be particular things that are cloud native…that are written for a specific cloud component.…How did those interface with the native cloud environments?…
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.
