Using Red Hat IaaS and PaaS Solutions to Develop Production-Quality Applications on Amazon EC2 Public Cloud

In this webinar, learn how Red Hat is working with industry leaders like Amazon to deliver a development and deployment platform for the Cloud that can help lessen the challenges of making this transition.

  • Are you an ISV, SI, VAR or enterprise that is actively planning and developing for the Cloud?
  • Are you looking for production-quality development and deployment infrastructure to support your move to the Cloud?
  • Are you concerned about the business and operational challenges resulting from a transition to the Cloud?

Cloud computing represents the future deployment platform for developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) as the market transitions from packaged software to delivering software as a service. ISVs will be involved in cloud on many levels. You may already be a SaaS provider, or you may just be starting the transition to the cloud. The technical challenges of migrating from packaged applications to software services will not be easy, but IDC expects that the business model changes will be equally or even more challenging. The entire process of software development, revenue models, and the ecosystem will be impacted.

This session features ISV Adobe Corporation, where they will share with you how they have successfully moved to the cloud for application development.
