APPS20: Options for Data in the Cloud
Abstract: Tailwind Traders is a large retail corporation, with a dangerous single point of failure: sales, fulfillment, monitoring, and telemetry data is centralized across its online and brick and mortar outlets. We’ll review structured databases, unstructured data real-time data, file storage considerations, and share tips on balancing performance, cost, and operational impacts.
In this session, you’ll learn how Tailwind Traders created a flexible data strategy using multiple Azure services, such as AzureSQL, CosmosDB, the CosmosDB Mongo API, and more – and how to overcome common challenges and find the right storage option.
