Doing Business in the Cloud
PaaS key to doing business in the Cloud? What are its key characteristics? Who is leading the charge? How can you exploit it? These and other questions will be tackled in a whistle stop tour of PaaS.

Cloudily: The *Free*-PaaS Jail-Breaker 
The promise of many current PaaS platforms is that they will make application development on the cloud simple. To achieve this, most PaaS platforms take the "my way or the highway" approach (a.k.a opinionated architecture), and force you to fit into their own stack, language of choice, cloud data center, security, high availability, and scalability models. The result is that once you’re in – you’re locked in forever. Cloudify aims to change all that by giving you the freedom to choose your own stack, on any cloud, and handle your application your way! All while ensuring even greater simplicity. Sounds too good to be true? In this session we will show you how all this is possible. Even more – we’ll show you how you can build even a complex Big Data application in a snap, and let you try it on your own environment..



11:15 – 11:45 Coffee Break
