AWS re:Invent 2017: From Mainframe to Microservices: Vanguard’s Move to the Cloud (ENT331) – #AWS

Maintaining control of sensitive data is critical in the highly regulated financial investments environment that Vanguard operates in. This need for data control complicated Vanguard’s move to the cloud. They needed to expand globally to provide a great user experience while at the same time maintaining their mainframe-based backend data architecture. In this session, Vanguard discusses the creative approach they took to decouple their monolithic backend architecture to empower a microservices architecture while maintaining compliance with regulations. They also cover solutions implemented to successfully meet their requirements for security, latency, and end-state consistency.
