This 15 minute video addresses the challenges of selecting a Database as a Service, including scalability, speed, reliability and flexibility. Simply putting classic relational databases in the cloud does not make their internal software scale. Learn how to future proof a real-time data strategy for applications.
- Cloud vendor databases are not hybrid or multi-cloud friendly, but leveraging different cloud strengths increases flexibility.
- Real-time applications require the ability to constantly absorb ever-increasing data workloads and pipelines.
- Low latency for fast reads and writes at SCALE will be table stakes.
- Flexibility to support new types of applications, business models, data types and architectures of evolving applications are necessary to future proofing application growth.
The more you look at these areas in detail, the more it will reduce the field of choices in surprising ways.
