    • Built on a Cloud Platform
    • Our Challenge
      We have some custom application code that cannot run in the Google AppEngine Environment
      Must have the same scalability characteristics
      We don’t have a large sys-admin staff (1 person) but need to manage large server arrays
    • Leveraging RightScale
      Start with RightScale pre-built script packages
      Tweak to include our application components
      Configure scaling parameters
      Production servers are now “disposable”
      Amazon ELB
      Apache
      Tomcat
    • Enabling Agility
      • Problem:
      • New security vulnerabilities published for underlying components
      • Need to respond quickly
      Before RightScale:
      Update each machine image manually
      Different OS bases and tweaks for different servers
      Lots of manual effort to update and redeploy images
      Now:
      Check out new RightScaleUbuntu image
      Tweak scripts for new image
      Rebuild and redeploy entire datacenter in under 12 hours
    • Impact of Cloud for financial reporting teams
    • Thank You
