Jason Hoffman, Chief Scientist, Joyent
Businesses that fully exploit the new opportunities that the cloud presents to enhance the performance and scale of applications will be able to improve employee productivity, increase bottom line profits, and grow their customer base. But success isn't guaranteed. As companies move from premises-based data centers to private and public cloud computing infrastructure, they need to carefully consider the architecture of their applications and data to make a safe and smooth transition.
Some of the most important considerations to obtain performance and scale in the cloud include:
* making certain that application performance is optimized when written for deployment on the cloud;
* planning how to most efficiently scale horizontally and vertically to meet their future capacity and performance demands;
* avoiding replication of complex, existing data center infrastructures in the cloud
In this interactive webinar, Joyent’s Chief Scientist Jason Hoffman will discuss how businesses can avoid common pitfalls in their transition to the cloud through smart application development and by ensuring that their cloud vendor provides dynamic scalability and performance.
