    • How to Achieve True Scalability in SaaS Applications? How to Achieve True Scalability in SaaS Applications? Jothi Rengarajan - Principal Architect – SaaS Solutions, Janakiraman Jayachandran - Cloud Architect Recorded: May 27 2015 6:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • One of the most unique and critical feature of Cloud is it’s “Elasticity”. The very nature of SaaS applications being delivered over cloud (internet) enforces a natural requirement for these applications to be elastic as well in order to leverage the cloud benefits. However, one of the common myths in SaaS is Cloud will take care of scalability and application need not worry about it. Many SaaS providers realize this when their applications are put for a true scalability test – which can span across all the layers of your application. While the cloud facilitates elasticity the application should have been architected to make use of it. In this webinar we are going focus on the best practices involved in building a true scalable SaaS application.

      Key Takeaways:
      • Scalability considerations in a layered architecture
      • Scalability design patterns
      • Techniques for database scalability
      • Balancing cost vs. scalability in AWS cloud
      • Key services in AWS for SaaS applications to leverage scalability

    • Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).

      SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.

      Key Takeaways:
      • Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
      • Data isolation risks and mitigation plans
