Using the Cloud to Build Reliable, Scalable Applications

Presented by

Owen Garrett, Director of Cloud Solutions, Zeus Technology

About this talk

Cloud Computing takes advantage of massive, shared resources to deliver services on-demand, scaling almost without limit, at an attractive cost profile. However, the multi-tenanted design of Cloud that brings these benefits raises concerns about reliability and levels of service. Is the Cloud the ‘public transport’ of the infrastructure age? In this presentation, Owen Garrett, Director of Cloud Solutions, will discuss why performance and reliability is key, and discuss the application delivery solutions that can address these concerns and bring measurable results. Such solutions are also key to unlocking scalability in the Cloud, enabling Cloud-bursting and helping organizations to expand beyond their Cloud infrastructure deployment. Owen Garrett joined Zeus in 1999 initially as a member of the software development team. More recently, Owen’s primary responsibility has grown to include product management, strategy and new product delivery.
