Here's a great book about the different parts of a cloud-based data platform and how you can build one using what's on offer from the different major cloud vendors.

George Thomas
Centralized data warehouses, the long-time defacto standard for housing data for analytics, are rapidly giving way to multi-faceted cloud data platforms. Companies that embrace modern cloud data platforms benefit from an integrated view of their business using all of their data and can take advantage of advanced analytic practices to drive predictions and as yet unimagined data services. Designing Cloud Data Platforms is an hands-on guide to envisioning and designing a modern scalable data platform that takes full advantage of the flexibility of the cloud. As you read, you’ll learn the core components of a cloud data platform design, along with the role of key technologies like Spark and Kafka Streams. You’ll also explore setting up processes to manage cloud-based data, keep it secure, and using advanced analytic and BI tools to analyse it.

About the Technology

Access to affordable, dependable, serverless cloud services has revolutionized the way organizations can approach data management, and companies both big and small are raring to migrate to the cloud. But without a properly designed data platform, data in the cloud can remain just as siloed and inaccessible as it is today for most organizations. Designing Cloud Data Platforms lays out the principles of a well-designed platform that uses the scalable resources of the public cloud to manage all of an organization's data, and present it as useful business insights.

About the book

In Designing Cloud Data Platforms, you’ll learn how to integrate data from multiple sources into a single, cloud-based, modern data platform. Drawing on their real-world experiences designing cloud data platforms for dozens of organizations, cloud data experts Danil Zburivsky and Lynda Partner take you through a six-layer approach to creating cloud data platforms that maximizes flexibility and manageability and reduces costs. Starting with foundational principles, you’ll learn how to get data into your platform from different databases, files, and APIs, the essential practices for organizing and processing that raw data, and how to best take advantage of the services offered by major cloud vendors. As you progress past the basics you’ll take a deep dive into advanced topics to get the most out of your data platform, including real-time data management, machine learning analytics, schema management, and more.
