Josh Fraser, VP Business Development at RightScale, led this session at the RightScale User Conference 2010 in Santa Clara.

Session Abstract: Enterprises are increasingly turning to cloud computing solutions to increase business agility and decrease costs. However, most enterprises have unique needs for their cloud projects such as corporate IT processes, security requirements and standardized controls. In this session, we'll provide an overview of RightScale's multi-cloud architecture and several effective enterprise examples for deploying in AWS and private cloud environments. Topics presented in this session will include self-service IT, consumer applications, development and test, core applications (e.g. business intelligence), security and user management.
