Local Cloud – Data Management with InterBase and AWS

local cloud data management with interbase and aws 2

Cloud is great, but sometimes you want local data too. This session takes a look at how to synchronize your data between Amazon’s cloud-based data hosting (AWS) and InterBase local storage. Learn the advantages of such a system and when you might want such an architecture.

What is Local Cloud?

  • There is no “Cloud”. It’s just somebody else’s computer.
  • The Cloud is a server someone else manages for you!

Cloud Benefits

  • Effectively outsources the server platform management to specialists.
  • Gives you economies of scale for cost savings. It makes large-scale computing power accessible by anyone.
  • Reduces internal workload and effort while leveraging the expertise of specialists.
  • Cut costs and enable focus on core business instead of being impeded by IT obstacles.

Cloud Drawbacks

  • Reduced control
  • Privacy issues
  • Security concerns
  • Jurisdiction complications

Local / Private Cloud

The benefits of cloud, but on-premises and fully under your control.

Hybrid Cloud

  • Combining the private and public cloud gaining the benefits of both.
  • Operating locally and in the cloud.

Cloud Deployment Models

Public, Private, Hybrid Clouds – On Premise, IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS


What is Amazon Web Services?

  • Most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform
  • Provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs
  • Cloud computing web services
  • Provides a variety of basic abstract technical infrastructure and distributed computing building blocks and tools.
  • Billed using metered pay-as-you-go basis, based on
    • Hardware
    • Operating system
    • Software
    • Networking features
    • API calls
  • Implemented at server farms throughout the world

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

  • Secure and resizable compute capacity.
  • Access reliable, scalable infrastructure on demand.  Scale capacity within minutes with SLA commitment of 99.99% availability.
  • Provide secure compute for your applications. Security is built into the foundation of Amazon EC2 with the AWS Nitro System.
  • Optimize performance and cost with flexible options like AWS Graviton-based instances, Amazon EC2 Spot instances, and AWS Savings Plans.
  • Migrate and build apps with ease using AWS Migration Tools, AWS Managed Services, or Amazon Lightsail. Learn how AWS can help.
