What are the basic building blocks of Modern System Design? These building blocks are the foundation for designing scalable applications. Each block serves a unique purpose and has it's own importance in scalable applications.

These are the building blocks of modern scalable applications.

DNS, Load Balancers, Databases. Key-Value store, CDN, Sequencer, Distributed Monitoring, Distributed Cache, Distributed Messaging Queue, Pub Sub, Rate Limiter, Blob Store, Distributed Search

Idea is to cover the breadth of these components instead of going deep on any one component. Covering depth on each of these components will be a lot and can be taken care of in future presentation.
