The trend towards container and multicloud application deployments is obvious and prominent. As there are players from Storage, Cloud, Service Providers and Standard organizations, consolidated and non fragmented ecosystem can support faster research to get matured solutions to meet the next generation data management demands. SODA Foundation goal is to build such an ecosystem for building container and multicloud open data framework for all. We listen to end users, partners, vendors and standard organizations to get there.

This meetup is aimed at providing the basic knowledge required to get started with Multicloud Data Management projects like Strato. We start with basics of Multi-cloud and then learn about various Cloud data management concepts.

We introduce Strato, the Multicloud Data Management project from the SODA Foundation and watch some demos and the roadmap for the project.

Finally we learn how one can contribute and be a part of this exciting project.
