Provisions To and From * Cloud with Virtual Application Appliances

Greg O'Connor to discuss real world customer's use of a single gold server-applications into a stateless world across VMs

Cloud Computing Expo on Ulitzer

As hype cools and work gets under way, there is a general hunger for practical, experience-based advice. In his session at the Cloud Computing Conference, Greg O'Connor follows a real world customer's use of a single gold server-application image for cross-domain provisioning of the data center, to multiple clouds and back. The ability to move server-based applications into a stateless world across VMs - VMware, Xen, and Hyper-V - without any modifications freed this Fortune 100 Company from infrastructure lock-in.

The 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo is co-located with the 7th International Virtualization Conference & Expo and will be taking place November 2-4, 2009 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.
