Migrating enterprise applications to the Cloud raises multiple questions: user experience, data security and compliance, cost of migration, and a framework to assess return on investment. In his session at Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, Anil Parambath, VP, Operations at CSS Corp., will highlight a step-wise evaluation framework for migrating an enterprise payroll application to Amazon's EC2 / S3 / EBS infrastructure. He will discuss in detail the application characteristics, storage and compliance requirements, a monitoring and management framework able to assess resource usage on a real-time basis, and the ROI framework used to measure lifecycle cost of ownership. He will also try and extend the learning to a model for establishing a Cloud migration methodology for enterprise applications.
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.
