    Accelerate innovation with hybrid capabilities and infrastructures (Level 300)

    Speaker: Ricardo Suieras

    Businesses are adopting the cloud to accelerate innovation and drive new value for their customers. But for many organizations, this means having to balance managing existing workloads with creating new modern applications that fully leverage the cloud. In this session, we discuss how businesses are seeking to create hybrid architectures that allow them to integrate their on-premises and cloud workloads using a common set of cloud services and tools across both environments. You learn about AWS hybrid cloud services and the hybrid architectures that you can build. Additionally, we share use cases and give examples of customers who are already using these services.

    Raw data to business insights: What you need to build a modern data lake (Level 200)

    Speaker: Javier Ramirez

    You have lots of data, and analyzing data from multiple sources at scale requires a central repository or data lake. But how will you move data into it? In which format? How will you validate and prepare the data? What about streaming data? Can data scientists discover and use the data? Can business people create reports via drag and drop? Can operations monitor what’s going on? Will the data lake scale when you have twice as much data? Is your data secure? In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.

    Move to managed databases (Level 200)

    Speaker: John Winford

    Self-managing databases, either on premises or in the cloud, can be time-consuming, complex, and expensive. With AWS fully managed database services, such as Amazon RDS, Amazon ElastiCache, and Amazon DocumentDB, you don’t need to worry about server provisioning, patching, setup, configuration, backups, or recovery. Instead, you can spend time innovating and building new applications and leave the infrastructure management to AWS. Attend this session to learn how AWS databases can help you easily maintain infrastructure and break free from managing legacy systems, all while delivering operational efficiency, performance, availability, scalability, security, and compliance.

    Speaker: Blair Layton

    Seldom can one database fit the needs of multiple distinct use cases. The days of the one-size-fits-all monolithic database are behind us, and developers are building highly distributed applications using many purpose-built databases. The world is changing, and the categories of databases continue to grow. We are increasingly seeing customers wanting to build Internet-scale applications that require diverse data models. In response to these needs, developers now have the choice of relational, key-value, wide column, document, in-memory, graph, time-series, and ledger databases. Each solves a specific problem or group of problems. Come learn about AWS purpose-built databases that meet the scale, performance, and manageability requirements of modern applications.
