So how does one design and build a cloud computing system? My advice is that you jump in, grab problem by the throat, and make your cloud-based architecture and resulting system do your bidding. In this session we’ll cover the right and wrong ways to leverage, design, and build cloud-based systems and infrastructure. Going beyond the hype, this includes advice from those currently in the trenches who make cloud computing work for the Global 2000 and government. The audience is anyone who will soon fight to make cloud computing work for their clients, employers, and/or investors, and need to knock it out of the park the first time.
