Cloud Adoption: Deploying Your Existing Applications to the Cloud

Skytap's CTO John Janakiraman to Present at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, Nov. 19-21, in San Jose, CA

Virtualization has fostered a new generation of cloud services, enabling organizations to run a wide range of applications in the cloud. However, the value of cloud services will only be fully realized when organizations can take their existing application workloads, easily deploy them on standards-based cloud infrastructure and benefit from the increased scalability and lower costs of a utility model.

Some workloads, such as application testing and training, are prime candidates for early deployment to a cloud provider due to their transient nature and high Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This session will outline the key requirements to look for in a cloud provider that can support existing application workloads, important considerations for integrating a cloud service into your existing IT infrastructure and real-world ROI case studies from customers who have already transitioned some of their IT portfolio to cloud providers.
