LTech is a leading provider of products and services focused on connecting business to the cloud
Lot to cover in cloud. I hope to give you information and provoke thought for your own research on how to use cloud technology. We’ll do an introduction.
How many of you have heard the term cloud computing? How many definitions have you heard? We won’t be talking about so-called “private cloud” (not internet based) The Internet itself is “the cloud” – so what really matters are the technologies and vendors that you can get the most value from Startup either as a new business, new product, or innovation center within a larger company
We’ll talk about some “Well known” and not so “well known” clouds in all of these categories
These include everything from real servers, to content delivery networks, to storage services
Java, Python, Ruby, .NET
Used to create the great website for this conference Pathable.com Differentiators: multi-tenant, scalable, and have programmable APIs Building blocks
Iaas for CDN, storage Use cases for PaaS – building business apps for salesforce. Building on ruby on rails. Building Java/Swing.
We are mixing up all of these externally hosted services to build compelling applications. These are all basically mashups. You want to provide the creativity – and leave the infrastructure and platform to the experts, and use whatever software you can as building blocks. You need a place to host your code and data. It needs to be scalable.
Review the 4 big clouds, infrastructure or software, available to social media businesses to build their applications Hard to imagine a social media app that isn’t using at least one, if not all four, of these vendors in their application. If you have ever used Google or Facebook, you have experienced the power and capabilities of the cloud. They were cloud computing pioneers out of necessity. They could not have become so AGILE, LARGE, and manage so much DATA without it. NASA gave us velcro, Facebook gave us memcached, Google gave us Map/Reduce, Amazon gave us EC2.
Huff post – opensocial apis, google twitter facebook + content served from CDN Animoto – servers and storage on amazon web services Engineyard – deploy a server Tweetdeck – data stored in Google AppEngine
