When building and designing applications for the cloud you need to overcome a lot of challenges, like performance, availability, data management, and resilience. In this course, Cloud Design Patterns Library: Data Management and Performance, you'll learn the design patterns that will make your cloud applications performant and work well with data. First, you'll discover how to improve geographic application performance with the static content hosting pattern. Next, you'll explore how to implement scalability of data with the sharding pattern. Finally, you'll learn how to improve your applications performance, scalability, and security with the CQRS pattern. When you've finished this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of the design patterns that will help you to design and build performant cloud-based applications.
