Cloud Native Storage Survey is an extensive two day course covering a plethora of cloud native storage solutions, including Cassandra, Hazelcast, Kafka, MongoDB, Redis, and Vitess (all open source, naturally). By providing a survey of these options, participants will be enabled to help choose the solution(s) which best suit their organization or organizational unit's needs. By providing a vendor neutral overview, this course offers an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each, regardless of whether the final decision by a group is to seek an on-prem, public cloud, hosted service, or hybrid solution.


Our Cloud Native Storage Survey course is available for Instructor-Led (ILT) in-person/onsite training or Virtual Instructor-Led training (VILT) delivery; Open Enrollment options may be available.
