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 be an introduction to big data in the cloud. Using reddit.com's learnings and failures as real world examples, you will learn all about running a large site and keeping your data in the cloud.
