Introduction - Cloud-Aware Applications (01:42)


This video features Vishnu Vinekar and is intended to help professionals gain insight into this rising software paradigm. This segment orients viewers to the topics that will be covered in this video including its characteristics, incorporating developers, and maximizing the benefits.

Understanding Cloud-Aware Applications (04:41)

IT and security professionals believe cloud storage is the riskiest category in cloud applications. Vinekar defines a cloud-aware app. Developers need to learn new design patterns like queuing and circuit breakers.

What Makes an App Cloud-Aware? (06:09)

Business will reduce computing cost, allow more focus on important work, and increase agility. Cloud-Aware applications are location independent and discoverable; legacy and high-security applications should not be transferred to the cloud. Organizations need to work toward an overall vision but be able to make adjustments during the process.

Development Team Challenges (02:53)

Developers need to ensure the security and control of their application; other challenges include vetting companies and compliance with the government. Take advantage of other cloud developers and application design patterns already available. Vinekar suggests designing for failure, network latency, queuing, cost-effectiveness, elasticity, and the future impact of the application.

Introduction - Conclusion (02:54)

Vinekar recommends working with cloud-aware application design patterns. It is the future of application development.
