Look at that application. It’s fantastic. It’s solid, reliable and bug free. Depended on by many. It’s so good your new task is to move it into the cloud and make into a service. How hard can that be?
Many have gone before you along this path. Many have failed. A few have succeeded. All have scars. Although the journey is different for everyone there are common aspects to them all. In this talk we will cover our experiences in moving applications into the Cloud. What you must do. What you must not. What matters, what doesn’t.
In moving to the cloud there is no try.
In this talk:
* We’ll cover the core aspects of how the cloud differs from local data centers in terms of application design, runtime characteristics and operational considerations.
* We’ll explain through various real life examples where things worked and where they didnt
* We end with a summary of the key elements to success and the major pitfalls to avoid.
