Architecting for the Cloud: Lessons Learned from 100 CloudStack deployments

A session at GOTO Aarhus 2012

  • Sheng Liang

Tuesday 2nd October, 2012

1:20pm to 2:10pm (CET)

The explosion of cloud computing adoption across a broad spectrum of industries and applications has helped solidify the establishment of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) as a viable, cost-effective and scalable model for delivering IT services to the enterprise. While the adoption of public cloud resources has proven effective across a broad set of use cases, some internal applications and services are not ready to move to the public cloud. In order to solve for this, organizations are taking a phased approach which let's them adopt cloud-style architectures utilizing their existing on-premise compute, storage and network resources which provide capabilities and performance above and beyond what was previously available in traditional and virtualized data centers.

In this session you will learn how enterprises can now implement an on-premise infrastructure that lets you run legacy and native cloud applications on a cloud-style IaaS platform, while retaining traditional controls over the physical layer. This allows you to prepare your cloud adoption in phases, while moving workloads back and forth as required to support the needs of your application lifecycles and organizational readiness as you make the transition to the cloud.
