The incidental complexity dragon never sleeps! In building Datomic Cloud we took on simplifying Datomic deployment, security and scaling on AWS, embodying and encapsulating best practices and maximizing connectivity to the AWS ecosystem. When you need to deploy your application on AWS you'll face similar challenges.
The idea behind Datomic Ions is to let you focus on writing your Clojure application and the ions tooling will get it running on your Datomic cloud nodes, without you having to run any other instances or become an AWS expert.
In this talk I'll explain the ideas behind ions, the Datomic cloud architecture and the ions tooling and application lifecycle model.
