Getting Ready for the Cloud

GigaSpaces' CTO Nati Shalom to Present at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, Nov. 19-21, in San Jose, CA

With the transition to online services, unexpected peak loads can lead to system failure, loss of data, performance issues and more. Cloud computing aims to address these challenges by providing on-demand compute resources. However, the current infrastructure of existing applications was not built for such flexible environments.

This session will demonstrate how to transition your applications to run on the Cloud without needing to completely re-architect them. Included is a 10-minute demo on turning an existing tier-based application into a tierless scaled out application running on the EC2 Cloud.

Delegates will learn:

  • How to transition existing JEE applications to a scale out environment with minimal change
  • How the move from systems based on human interactions to those based on electronic interactions leads to unpredictable peak loads
  • The differences between a cloud computing environment and classic IT environments, specifically regarding architecture, network configuration, and multicast behavior
  • What to take into account when developing or deploying applications on the cloud
