Database workloads were, initially, comparatively slow to move to the cloud, but as the pace of enterprise cloud adoption accelerates 451 Research Voice of the Enterprise studies show that the relational database is now the most popular public cloud service currently in use – and seven of the top 12 public cloud services are data-related.
As increasing volumes of data are generated and stored in the cloud, data processing and analytics workloads are also rapidly being drawn to the cloud, particular to support new data sources and applications, including IoT devices and stream processing, as well as machine learning.
The majority of existing database workloads continue to run on-premises, however, and enterprises need to understand the benefits and challenges of running database workloads in the cloud, as well as managing data across hybrid environments – including on-premises datacenters, the edge, and multiple cloud environments.
In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research VP, Data, AI and Analytics, 451 Research, will discuss the latest trends driving the adoption of cloud data platforms, as well as the key considerations to keep in mind when selecting a cloud data platform, including:
• Cloud database adoption trends
• Cloud database adoption drivers
• Hybrid operational/analytic processing
• AI and ML in the cloud
• Barriers to cloud database adoption
• Cloud migration patterns
• Multi/hybrid cloud strategies
• Avoiding cloud provider lock-in
