@CloudExpo: Press Release

AppZero to Demonstrate Zapp Application Migration Automation in Rackspace Pavilion

The demo will show how Zapp automation slashes the bulk of manual labor, time and costs

Media Alert: AppZero to demonstrate Zapp application migration automation in Rackspace pavilion at Cloud Expo, Santa Clara Nov 7th through Nov 8th

What: AppZero will be demonstrating its newly announced Zapp migration at Cloud Expo 2012 West. The fastest and most flexible way to move server applications to any cloud, Zapp automatically extracts Windows server applications from production environments and packages them for movement to any cloud, without re-engineering, change, or lock-in. The demonstration will show how Zapp automation slashes the bulk of manual labor, time, costs, and error typically involved in on-boarding complex enterprise applications.

Where: Rackspace, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA - Booth #301/309

When: Nov 6th @ 5:15 PT and Nov 7th @ 10:15 PT

Why: AppZero is an active partner in Rackspace's Cloud Tools Marketplace eco-system, recognized for rapid and simplified on-boarding/migration of complex Windows production applications.

Who: This demo will appeal to anyone interested in, or responsible for moving enterprise applications to or from datacenters and clouds. It will be of particular interest to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) looking to increase their MRR by giving their customers a solution that easily migrates applications to their cloud.

Who would I talk to if I'd like more information?  Inquiries please connect AppZero at [email protected] or 617.820.5126.

CloudEXPO Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
