The conference presentation covers the basics of performance testing and disaster recovery in cloud-native environments. It emphasizes the importance of understanding the system's topology, data protection, and encryption in affecting overall performance. The presentation also introduces the concept of cloud-native disaster recovery and compares it with traditional disaster recovery. The talk concludes with an invitation to join the community and contribute to the white papers and due diligence processes.
- Understanding the system's topology, data protection, and encryption is crucial in affecting overall performance in cloud-native environments
- Cloud-native disaster recovery is a new approach that should be considered alongside traditional disaster recovery
- Joining the community and contributing to the white papers and due diligence processes is encouraged
The speaker shared an example of a benchmark where someone published getting two gigabytes per second on their file system, but upon further questioning, it was revealed that they were running on a hard drive that could only give 200 megabytes per second. This highlights the importance of understanding what is being measured and how much of an impact the cache is having on the environment to get a real understanding of the system's performance.
