He’ll provide examples of existing best practices, emerging technologies, and the integration of these technologies to best support the business. This includes considering all aspects of building and operating your infrastructure and application environments. You’ll also gain a sound understanding of the intersection of IaaS, PaaS, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to help you define your own cloud strategy and give your organization the best chance of success.
In his session and interactive discussion with Red Hat cloud evangelist Gordon Haff, David will answer your specific questions along with:
