What are content distribution networks?

You might want to use ok that becomes a cloud service service because you are consuming it you are using it by taking from somebody else right but it’s essentially a piece of hardware that you rent from other people you might want to use a folder just a storage folder and you you want to store all the videos that you have right so that becomes something like a s3 object storage you might want to set up your own YouTube kind of website right.

You will need content distribution networks again condensed content distribution networks or CD ends are a service from the cloud right everybody is offering it so all of these things again there are more than hundreds of services that you can you know to take from cloud including the container services or micro services and so on, so there are lot of other tangential technologies which are driving the growth of cloud right and all of these things are being offered on cloud to make it easy and and you know efficient for you.

If you’re a database person if you would you know want to on the work on the future of databases people today are talking about data Lakes right forget databases forget data stores forget data warehouses people are talking about data leaks now essentially a concept which has you know all sort all sorts of data storage techniques right will have a data warehouse you’ll have a data store which is no sequel based you’ll have an R DBMS you’ll have a file storage which is objects store and so on right so all of that is again hosted and offered through cloud if you reckon.
If you’re an infrastructure person if you’re a developer know containers are a revelation for you right they’ve helped everybody knows docker everybody talks about docker and if you’re writing micro services based applications you you’re very likely to deploy them in in docker or other containers and because it becomes complex cloud gives you container orchestration services to help you all the complexity right there are companies today whose only product is a set of API’s right now it’s very difficult to imagine something like this.

You know a few years ago right there’s a company whose only product is a set of API straight a set of functions which other people are consuming, but that’s true today because cloud helps you do that right there is server less there is edge computing this IOT so all of these aspects are really driving and enabling the growth of cloud at a very high pace right so memory you’re talking about cloud you should also be cognizant of all these you know other streams of technologies so ultimately because of all that.

We’ve spoken right cloud professionals are in high demand and if you are really interested in something like cloud you should look forward to going into either of these domains and business buckets without going into the salary numbers here let’s understand a little more about what skills are required and what companies want from you as cloud professionals right like I just said there is much more to cloud than infrastructure it is not only about VM or storage or or a video file that you still remotely or or even remote desktop right these are very old paradigms that people have in their mind right about Klaus cloud is much much broader it is way way beyond than just a BM right.

If you are working on micro services or container based applications if you are okay if you’re doing all of you know things like docker you know DevOps if you want the past platform if you want to do big data as a start-up cloud can help you do that now just to give you a quick example here if any of you watches Netflix right I’m sure everybody knows Netflix if not as a user but at least as a company right, so Netflix is one of the best companies in the world as far as engineering is concerned and they have created amazing pieces of libraries API’s lot of tools for you to use right and micro services as a concept was really driven by Netflix right.

There are more than you know hundreds of micro services no small units or functionalities running together in sync really like a nice musical Orchestra to give you the experience that you have on Netflix right and that’s the reason they can scale up very fast globally right so just give you an example in context here, so the cloud is much more than just a VM yeah and as an aspiring professional you should definitely look forward to learning these skills if you want to become a cloud architect right for a cloud engineer you know cloud governance and cloud security even to a certain extent big data and data bases might not be that relevant for you know early career to mid-career professionals or for mid to senior right if you’re about 678 plus years of experience.

If you want to become an architect really you should have all of these skills as part of your portfolio and not just by theory but also by hands-on practice okay so I see two questions here one Shivani the other from Sheet okay so she Ronnie’s asking why banks are not using cloud why they are using their own data centers Shivani that’s not true first of all banks are using the cloud if you want you can also research about this but I will tell you that areas where banks are not using cloud right.

So banks are using cloud for applications and data which is not sensitive right which is not personally identifiable information pampa right so according to government regulations you cannot use person you cannot store personal information outside national boundaries right outside India outside EU and so on, so banks are using cloud but for things that are not no security sensitive, so money does that answer your question that that’s not entirely true by the way sheet what is edge computing all right.

So I hope you were aware of the client-server architecture that was the craze just about a decade back before cloud came in so Sheet Arya we’ve about declined some architecture the essential request/response thing yeah perfect so if you look at the client-server architecture the the processing the intelligence right and all the business logic got executed on the server right not on the client on the client you usually had you know things from a presentation perspective right the things got rendered and you got the response.
