Josep Blanquer, Sr. Systems Architect at RightScale, led this session at the RightScale User Conference 2010 in Santa Clara.
Session Abstract: Deploying in multi-cloud environments involves much more than just choosing which cloud provider to use. It requires seamlessly deploying parts of a company's infrastructure across multiple clouds that function in concert while spanning infrastructure providers. In this session, you'll learn about the abstractions necessary to deliver portability and ease of management in a multi-cloud environment. Some important concepts to address include image management, template management, mixed deployments and data portability. We'll present examples of multi-cloud scenarios and describe the design principles to consider when architecting deployments that must span and migrate across different clouds and providers.
