ESCAPE Conference 2019: The Challenges of App Data in Multi-Cloud -- Spencer Kimball, Cockroach Labs

We have only just started down the path of becoming truly "global" in our systems, applications, and data. The move to the cloud and a shift in thinking to distributed systems has opened a world of possibility for building broadly dispersed businesses. A few global-scale providers have reached this summit, but what does that mean for the rest of us? There is a future where infrastructure is abstracted away from our applications, services and data. A future where the deployment of an application is "global" at the push of a button. What does that mean to us today and where do we need to go as an industry to get there? How does this play out with public cloud providers being the backbone of these global applications and what are the challenges we face as we leverage this backbone? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Careers: https://www.cockroachlabs.com/careers CockroachCloud: https://www.cockroachlabs.com/product/cockroachcloud/ Blog: https://www.cockroachlabs.com/blog/ Docs: https://www.cockroachlabs.com/docs/stable/ Community Slack: https://cockroa.ch/Welcome-to-Slack Twitter: https://twitter.com/CockroachDB
