Innovate Faster in the Cloud with a Platform as a Service

Presentaion: "Innovate Faster in the Cloud with a PaaS" webinar
Presenter: Jacob Lehrbaum
Date: November 18, 2011

Recorded presentation:

If you are building a new application today you are likely considering a move to the cloud. If so, you should take a careful look at Platform as a Service (PaaS). Using a PaaS makes it fast and easy to deploy and run high-impact applications by relieving the developer from having to integrate, configure, test, and maintain the platform-level software necessary to run applications. It will also improve your uptime, help you scale with your business and can even save you money.
