In our last Cloud Computing Session Move Your Applications to the Cloud with Ease and Confidence (http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/home/move-your-applications-to-the-cloud-with-ease-and-confidence
) we discussed how you can take advantage of cloud computing while retaining control, minimising the downside and risks. This session will focus on Cloud Portability and Cloud Computing as Agile Infrastructure.
Don't believe the papers...
You can start the migration to agile infrastructure without re-architecting, re-learning, re-training, re-testing, or re-platforming everything. Move workloads between Clouds (public, private, virtual infrastructure) while maintaining monitoring capabilities, configuration and contextualization parameters, in a secure and controlled Overlay Network that will keep your compliance report from looking like it has the measles.
Learn how to...
Learn how to employ innovative techniques like CohesiveFT's xCloudMotion(tm), an implementation of stateless server motion which allows application topologies to move between clouds, and cross continents and oceans in minutes. This is comparable to the "OTV" capabilities recently announced by Cisco for long distance VMotion the exception being it doesn't require any specific hardware, it doesn't require service or cloud provider investment or involvement, it doesn't require the same virtual infrastructure, doesn't require the same type of underlying physical server, and certainly doesn't need 10gig Ethernet via leased lines, rather it runs on the consumer Internet.
Whether you're an individual developer, architect, or enterprise dev and test, from a corporate, government, ISV, or SI, who are building web apps or complex 'n' tier business systems, this Cloud Computing session has something for you.
