If they’re going to move into the cloud, the lessons learned from Amazon.com’s cloud computing will be crucial to keep in mind. IT managers looking for real-world experience in ensuring uptime in scaling applications critical to operations will be hard-pressed to find a more useful perspective than that of Jessie Robbins.
How did Amazon.com’s elastic computing cloud come to be? Where were the pain points in scaling storage, application hosting and processing power? What questions should IT managers be asking as they consider cloud services? How can automation and other tools help IT staff to manage high-demand applications? Learn the answers to these questions and more in this session from the “Master of Disaster.”
