Straight Talk on Business Critical Applications in the Cloud

Presented by

Jim Hannan, Principal Architect; House of Brick Technologies

About this talk

As much as the term Cloud Computing gets tossed around these days you would think everyone’s using it. But do cloud predictions really match real world use? If you aren’t “in the cloud” are you already behind the competition? During this presentation, we will discuss the pros and cons of moving applications to the cloud, with a particular focus on business critical applications. We will share our experiences working with clients to determine if their applications are “cloud ready” through a review of availability, costs, and operational impacts. Examples of successful use cases in the public cloud will be explored including emerging technologies, DRaaS, new applications, older applications running on older hardware, and startups. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the types of applications that are best suited for the cloud, a list of questions you should be asking when considering moving to the cloud, and a checklist you can use to evaluate your application’s cloud readiness.
