Borderless Cloud: Designing, Implementing, and Securing Apps Across Multiple Clouds

There are different reasons why your team might want to leverage the multi-cloud architecture. It could be a result of the desire to enhance redundancy and optimize costs, to ensure regulatory compliance, or to capitalize on the diverse services offered by different cloud providers. However, as organizations reap the benefits of a multi-cloud approach, the challenges of designing, implementing, and securing distributed systems across multiple providers come to the forefront.

In this talk, I will explore the complexities of seamlessly integrating multiple clouds into your application's architecture, deployment processes, and CI/CD pipelines. By sharing practical strategies, I will also demystify the complexities associated with multi-cloud environments. The session will shed light on my 4 Ps for successful multi-cloud integration: plan, prototype, pilot, and production. By the end of this talk, participants will gain the confidence to navigate the nuances of multi-cloud environments, implement robust architectures, and fortify their applications against potential challenges.

What's the focus of your work these days?

I'm currently working in the domain of Cloud and Infrastructure Engineering, helping developers build great products on the cloud.

What's the motivation for your talk at QCon London 2024?

I'd love to share my experiences with others and show them how to navigate the complexities of seamlessly integrating multiple clouds into their application's architecture, deployment processes, and CI/CD pipelines. 

How would you describe your main persona and target audience for this session?

I'd describe the persona of the target audience as Senior Engineers interested in DevOps and Cloud Engineering.

Is there anything specific that you'd like people to walk away with after watching your session?

I want them to walk away from my presentation with a clear understanding of the complexities involved in multi-cloud integration, armed with practical strategies, and empowered by the 4 Ps methodology.
