Hello Tom, Kamal, Erik and Piyum. Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on the book publication
I had a look at the table of contents, which seems very interesting, as I am a researcher of cloud-based architectures myself. One question I have is whether you addressed vendor lock-in mitigation in your book. There are different ways in which this can be achieved, such as, for example, by having hybrid or multi-cloud set-ups. I am very interested to hear if this was a consideration of yours, and what your approach is to mitigating it.
Thanks so much for the question. As for cloud lock-in fears, we have that sprinkled across the book so I am sure you will find that interesting. In fact we also challenge some of the myths around it, as when you look at the current IT landscape, if you are using Oracle Database, then even then you are in a way locked-in...so sometimes its more of a perception of being locked-in than it being a reality.
