Moving applications to the cloud requires careful attention to enterprise needs to meet security requirements for service availability, manageability and connectivity. So how do you realize ultimate control of your cloud deployments when delivering enterprise applications and user access in the cloud? This session gives you an overview of issues surrounding application delivery in the cloud and presents a number of architectural options for deploying applications within public cloud architectures. The session will discuss approaches to network architecture that can dramatically simplify deployment and ongoing management of applications, particularly as they migrate from one cloud to another or operate in active/passive deployment clouds for business continuity.
