Tradeoffs in Cloud Computing Architectures

SHOW: Season 2, Show 5OVERVIEW: From the creators of the Internet's #1 Cloud Computing podcast, The Cloudcast, Aaron Delp (@aarondelp) and Brian Gracely (@bgracely) introduce this new podcast,  Cloudcast Basics.FRAMEWORK FOR CONSIDERATIONThis has always been a contentious topic, with varying options and quite a bit of evolution in the industry over time. The reality (in today’s world) is that most companies use a variety of cloud services, whether that’s IaaS. PaaS or SaaS-level. Does your company make centralized or decentralized decisions on cloud usage?Is there a distinct business reason to use multiple clouds? Does your company expect to integrate applications across clouds, or do they tend to be isolated? Do you have the people (or partners) to manage across multiple clouds? Are acquisitions a big part of your company’s innovation strategy? How much do you have to care about the longer-term future of your company?REAL-WORLD CONSIDERATIONS:All of the cloud providers, and many software vendors, that can help you run consistently across multiple clouds.There is integration technology that can help you tie together multiple applications (via APIs).Most companies don’t “cloudburst” applications between clouds, because they usually have built up enough data gravity that it would be expensive to move the app and the data. SUBSCRIBE: Please subscribe anywhere you get podcasts (Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Amazon Music, Pandora, etc.).CLOUD NEWS OF THE WEEK - http://bit.ly/cloudcast-cnotwLEARNING CLOUD COMPUTING:Here are some great places to begin your cloud journey, if you're interested in getting hands-on experience with the technology, or you'd like to build your skills towards a certification. CBT Nuggets - Training and CertificationsA Cloud Guru - Training and CertificationsCloud Academy - Training and CertificationsKatakoda - Self-Paced, Interactive LearningGitHub - Code Samples and CollaborationFEEDBACK?Web: Cloudcast Basics Email: show at cloudcastbasics dot netTwitter: @cloudcastbasics
