Cloud computing has completely transformed the way businesses operate. As a result, it is more important than ever to examine the foundations of modern cloud architectures in order to discover if they are delivering the best results for your business.
Cloud has become a dominant force in the oil and gas industry over the past few years, and with that comes a drastic change for every aspect of systems architecture.

Dr Peter Black's paper examines the key concepts that underpin modern cloud architectures, the opportunities it provides, and illustrates how the distinction between on premises and cloud can be blurred. It will look at the practical impact of container technology, discuss how it enables a microservice world, and look at the real benefits it provides for business applications. Finally, this paper will examine the topic of security.
