Description

Databases Database systems developed in iCloud transform heterogeneous and geographically distributed storage systems into a multi-tenant relational back-end. Security and privacy must be maintained across all our systems and providing timely results requires advanced query planning and execution, optimization, and multi-tenant scheduling. Databases in iCloud handles exabytes of data and petabytes of metadata. Data Analytics Build high-performance, scalable, and extensible systems to facilitate insights into storage and access patterns, while preserving the privacy of our users. Engage in applied research such as pattern mining, anomaly detection, predictive modeling, classification, and optimization. Developer Platform CloudKit, Apple's cloud back-end service and app development framework, provides strongly consistent storage for structured data. It's the foundation for many of Apple's most meaningful and popular apps, such as iCloud Photos, iCloud Drive, Notes, Keynote, and Apple News, as well as many third-party apps. By relying on CloudKit to provide scale, consistency, durability and security, application developers are free to focus on delivering app front-end logic. Messaging & Real Time Communication Messaging systems enable real-time experiences, with very low latency and very high availability, through Internet-scale distributed systems. These systems power products like FaceTime, iMessage, and Apple Push Notification service. The platform solves a large breadth of challenges across identity, messaging, queueing, presence, routing, relays, developer APIs, and much more. Networking & Edge Build the API gateway to all iCloud services, transiting millions of requests per second and terabits of traffic through data centers around the world. Work on areas such as client connectivity, load balancing, content delivery, video streaming, and media transcoding in the cloud.
