Once we understand what cloud performance actually means, we need to understand how it applies to real world situations and real applications. In this panel, we'll bring cloud providers and cloud users together for a discussion that will include what vendors are doing about maintaining their offering's performance, what developers are learning as they deploy applications to the cloud, and if any gaps exist between the two that we should be aware of. We'll focus on key takeaways and lessons that can help new and existing application deployments in the cloud.
This session will provide a practical guide to evaluating enterprise clouds and cloud providers. Go beyond the marketing hype, the brands and the buzzwords, and learn how differences in architecture, infrastructure, security and design can have significant impact on your ability to take advantage of the cost-effectiveness and agility of infrastructure-as-a-service without compromise to availability, performance and compliance. Also, hear examples of how leading enterprises and government agencies are taking advantage of the power and flexibility offered by enterprise cloud computing architecture.
