Cloud 2.0 – How Containers, Microservices and Open Source Software are Redifining Cloud Computing

Led by the rocket like success of Amazon Web Services cloud computing is a paradigm shift in the way we host and deploy infrastructure. Organizations are consuming cloud infrastructure across multiple cloud providers both inside their data center and the data centers of others. The advent of highly portable workloads via containers (e.g. Docker) and discrete units of computing delivered by microservices are enabling organizations (like Netflix) to deploy complex multi-layered products and services at breakneck speeds.

This talk will give an overview of the major cloud services and the open source software (e.g. OpenStack, Apache CloudStack) that can be used to deliver and manage cloud computing infrastructure(e.g. Puppet, Chef, Ansible). The discussion will cover the evolution of cloud computing and how that sets the stage for realizing the agility, flexibility and power of cloud computing.

Attendees should expect to learn about the leading technologies in cloud computing, strategies for using open source software to create/manage cloud computing services and to gain an understanding how current developments are providing a way to create a single cloud fabric that best serves their individual needs.
