How to you manage Performance in the Cloud, in particular in "Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments like Window's Azure or Heroku where you don't have a "virtual machine" to manage?
Even in "Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)" environments like Amazon EC2 there are limitations on the tools you can deploy into that environment to assist in performance management, troubleshooting etc (e.g. you can't deploy promiscuous mode network sniffing tools in EC2).
James Smith from Adactus will give us an overview of Cloud Services as a whole, and then drill down into some of the issues they have experienced in deployed their "Pulse" Claims Management Solution into the Azure cloud (http://www.pulseclaims.com/home).
Beyond just looking at page speed performance he'll talk about the challenges involved in managing SLA's, Cloud "support" (or lack of it!), performance troubleshooting and the whole "performance lifecycle".
