Track Overview

The Cloud Operating Model

Whether cloud-native, hybrid, or considering a move, successfully running web-scale workloads on the cloud requires the application of well-tested operational strategies to maximize success. As with any large infrastructure footprint, you must balance the often competing demands of:

  • Security, Compliance, and Recoverability
  • Availability and Performance (QoS)
  • Developer Productivity / Rate of Innovation
  • Infrastructure Efficiency / Spend

If leveraged effectively cloud capabilities provide significant benefit vs. a compromise for a majority of the above categories. Although running large workloads on-prem vs a public cloud have similar underlying fundamentals, the cloud poses unique challenges which must be addressed. Come hear from web-scale cloud infrastructure practitioners on a variety of possible topics to help accelerate your own journey on the cloud and avoid key pitfalls along the way.
