Do you know what caused the Titanic to sink? Poorly designed bulkheads. How can you ensure resilience between components in your cloud application? Effectively designed bulkheads! In this session, join Chris as he explores how the bulkhead pattern can help you prevent excessive load or failures in one service impacting the consumers of that service!

Have a need to update a legacy application to use cloud concepts such as retry, circuit breaker or other features? Then the ambassador or sidecar patterns may be for you! Join Peter and Chris as they continue their journey exploring Cloud Design Patterns. In this session, they discuss the Sidecar and Ambassador Patterns.

Have you implemented caching within your application? Need to maintain consistency between your cache and the data in your underlying store? Or maybe you haven't adopted caching yet, and intrigued on what patterns you could use to do so?

Have you delployed your application in a way that it needs compute dedicated for each instance? Perhaps you have an app which could be deployed as a Software as a Service/multi-tenanted app, but still have a deployment per tenant? Well, find out how the Compute Resource Consolidation Pattern could be saving you cost in this episode of Cloud With Chris. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time. at a time.
