Designing Data Intensive Cloud Native Applications

Cloud is rapidly changing the way modern-day applications are being designed. Data is at the center of multiple challenges while architecting solutions in the cloud.

With technology changing rapidly, there are new possibilities for processing data efficiently. Cloud Native is a combination of various patterns like DevOps, CI/CD, Containers, Orchestration, Microservices and Cloud Infrastructure. In this session, you will learn more about the tools and technologies that will help you to design data-intensive systems. We will take a structured approach towards architecting data-centric solutions, covering technologies like message queues, data partitioning, search index, data cache, event sourcing, NoSQL solutions, microservices and cloud migration strategies.

If you are a Data Professional, Software Engineer or Architect, come join me in this session to understand the high-level design principles that will help you build scalable, resilient and maintainable systems in the cloud.
