Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video What storage is needed?, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions.
- [Instructor] So let's talk about storage.…So storage is core to all cloud architectures.…It's related to data, providing storage services,…but it should not be confused with data.…Keep in mind that storage systems are where we store…information physically,…but they're not into themselves a database.…So they provide developers with a way to persist files…and persist information, things like that,…but they don't typically provide data management facility.…So we're talking about primitive storage actions.…The ability to look at core storage systems…as related to the storage of data…but it doesn't necessarily mean they're database.…
So keep that in mind, bit confusing.…So, here you need to basically get into…what storage is needed…and you need to understand the capacity,…the storage models block or object,…and the ability to support the model…that you're looking for.…But capacity is the amount of storage…that you're going to need…to support the needs of the application.…And that's going to be important but it's not as important…
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.
