Understanding the Cloud Native Storage Landscape

Understanding the Cloud Native Storage Landscape by Alex Chircop

In this talk we will cover cloud native storage technologies and how they fit in orchestrated workloads. We will be covering topics including block stores, fileystems, object stores, key-value stores and databases, amongst others. The different architectural approaches and designs will be compared in terms of key attributes like availability, scalability, performance, data consistency, durability, fault tolerance, ease of development and operational complexity.
