Build Modern Applications with Purpose-built Databases (Level 200), 30min

Justin Thomas, Business Development Manager Amazon Neptune, Amazon Web Services
Developers are refactoring monolithic applications into collections of distributed, loosely coupled microservices. Each microservice does one core function well and can be improved upon without impacting others. This allows developers to iterate quickly based on user feedback. Modern applications built with this approach has profound implications for the database layer. Instead of using a single, general purpose database, each microservice can use its own database that is well suited for its function. AWS offers the broadest portfolio of 15+ purpose-built database engines, enabling developers to pick the right database for the job. In this presentation, we cover the role of purpose-built databases in modern applications, as well as reference architectures for different use cases of microservices.
