The Role of Hybrid Cloud in Driving the Future State of Business
Gee Rittenhouse

11:00 - 12:00 pm

The Current State of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is gaining increasing amounts of enterprise IT budgets. There is still considerable debate about whether to employ onsite "private" cloud architectures, third-party "public" cloud architectures, or a hybrid. The reality is that hybrid cloud is emerging strongly throughout enterprises of all sizes, which in turn focuses a discussion on the major public-cloud providers. This session initiates the discussion of public cloud and three major providers: Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

Amazon EC2 ,Part 1
Amazon Web Services is the pioneer in public-cloud IaaS with its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) services. Amazon [email protected] is described by the company as "a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers." The EC2 web services interface allows developers to obtain and configure capacity with what Amazon calls "minimal friction." This session introduces delegates to EC2.

5:00 - 6:00pm Amazon EC2, Part 2
Amazon EC2 is designed to provide complete control of computing resources while running within Amazon's massive cloud infrastructure. Part 2 of the EC2 instruction takes delegates through provisioning, scaling, capacity planning in real-time and over the longer term, the economics of using this service, and how to build failure-resilient applications.

Azure is known as a "fabric layer" within Microsoft's world of datacenters, with very specific characteristics and performance metrics. In Part 2 of the instruction on this platform, delegates are taken through provisioning, scaling, capacity planning in real-time and over the longer term, the economics of using this service, and how to build failure-resilient applications.
4:30 - 5:30 pm Google Compute Engine, Part One
Google Computer Engine (GCE) is now emerging as a legitimate competitor to EC2 and Azure VMs. The company has perhaps one million servers under its management worldwide, and has now focused resources on competing for the growing public-cloud IaaS market. This session introduces delegates to how Google has entered this competitive arena and what it offers to developers who are considering it.
5:30 - 6:30 pm Google Compute Engine , Part Two
GCE allows customers to launch virtual machines (VMs) in an initial increment as short as 10 minutes, and in increments as small as 1 minute thereafter. Part 2 of instruction on this platform outlines all the current features of GCE, how customers can deploy instances, what features are now available and how they compare to what enterprise IT management expects from a public IaaS. Persistent disks, images, and machine types are all covered.
