Section 3: Cost- and Carbon-Aware Cloud Architectures
In this section, you will understand how database and application architectural patterns have a direct impact on cloud spending and what the most used strategies are to optimize performance and costs. The discussion will shift from savings on infrastructure to examine how a well-designed and performant application can bring down cloud costs and why any investment in performance optimization strategies, among them database tuning, is easily and quickly repaid by the monthly savings gained.
This section will also focus on sustainable software engineering and how an application designed for performance and cost management can have a lower carbon footprint. Upon completion of this section, you will have a good understanding of the most recent performant, cloud-native, and sustainable architectural patterns for a cost-managed and carbon-aware application.
