Achieving resiliency in the cloud for mission- and business-critical applications

12 December 2023, Boston 6:30 pm - 9:30 am EST
In partnership

Dinner Location: Davio's

Moving to the cloud offers organizations significant value. After all, the cloud can substantially improve the scalability and stability of apps compared to on-prem environments. In terms of resilience, the cloud offers more flexibility, faster recovery times after failures, and better automation and tooling. But these cloud capabilities don’t just happen automatically – organizations must know how to design, architect, and operate their applications in the cloud. Furthermore, cloud service providers don’t have flawless operations. They have outages which you must expect and design for to protect your mission-critical apps.

To realize the benefits the cloud has, companies need to design in a cloud-native manner and employ new techniques and patterns. Among these patterns involve choosing the best-fit data platform for their cloud strategy, simplifying the tech stack, and automating CI/CD to take advantage of the cloud’s capabilities while protecting against cloud concentration risk and ensure compliance to regulations on data sovereignty. So, where do they start?

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.
