  • 6.
  • 7. Built on a Cloud Platform
  • 8. 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
  • 9. 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
  • 10. Enabling Agility
    • Problem:
    • 11. New security vulnerabilities published for underlying components
    • 12. 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
  • 13. Impact of Cloud for financial reporting teams
  • 14. Thank You
