Cloud Computing and PaaS - Learn from the Experts

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) represents a subtle, yet significant shift in the transition from traditional web appdev/hosting technology to cloud-native appdev/hosting technology. As the last piece of the Cloud Computing pyramid to evolve there are several definitions of the term which are confusing, both to customers and the market as a whole. Furthermore, different programming models are evolving to address divergent customers needs. One of these needs is the ability to run legacy apps & code in a new Infrastructure-as-a-Service environment. There are many enterprise customers with this need. Another need is to take advantage of new Cloud Computing features to rapidly develop brand new apps that scale without the burden of supporting legacy application code. Both are rapidly evolving programming models, and together, they represent the future of programming in the Cloud.

Dave Nielsen, founder of CloudCamp, and chair of the PaaS Working Group has helped clarify the definition of these two PaaS models using his experience running over 100 discussion groups and conducting vendor and customer interviews.  If you want to understand this emerging technology this workshop is for you. Not only will you learn the difference between IaaS, Legacy PaaS & Native PaaS, but the pros and cons of each, and when to use one versus the other


Who should attend:

Developers, Application Architects, Project Managers, IT Specialists and System Administrators
