Clojure devs are increasingly being called upon to deliver cloud-native applications on AWS. What if you could press a button and start Datomic running on AWS? Datomic that:
– lets you retain operational control and security without taking on a large operational burden,
– is inexpensive to run, with hourly billing akin to EC2 and other AWS services,
– deeply integrates with AWS services to deliver the flexibility, monitoring and elasticity you seek from the cloud.
In this talk, we’ll explore the work we’ve been doing to wed the information model and core simplicity of the Datomic architecture with a set of resource decisions, best practices, and automation to make Datomic the simple *and easy* database for Clojure developers who want to leverage AWS.
Stuart Halloway is a founder and President of Cognitect (formerly Relevance). He is a Clojure committer and a developer of the Datomic database. Stuart has spoken at a variety of industry events, including StrangeLoop, Clojure/conj, EuroClojure, Clojure/west, SpeakerConf, QCon, GOTO, OSCON, RailsConf, RubyConf, JavaOne, and NFJS. Stuart has written a number of books and technical articles. Of these, he is most proud of Programming Clojure.
