Most organizations today are a mix of cloud and on-premise systems. Many have come about piecemeal as cloud providers have been added as different departments move to the cloud, retain their on-premise legacy systems, or as new companies are acquired and their infrastructure is integrated. Streaming data provides a mechanism to join systems asynchronously so they can handle long distances, high latency, or unpredictable connections with relative ease. These two transitions, while relatively new, have the potential to be some of the most impactful and important shifts in the industry in a long time.
Customers expect our systems to work unilaterally - wherever the servers are located. Data should be accessible to everyone that needs it no matter where they or the systems are located. In this course, we’ll cover the things you need to be successful in building real-time multicloud and hybrid-cloud systems. Systems that span continents and clouds. There are three tools that can achieve this: the open-source MirrorMaker 2, Confluent Replicator, and Cluster Linking.
We'll talk about the benefits and considerations that need to be made with each one and then configure a local instance of MirrorMaker 2 and a cloud cluster using Cluster Linking.
