Gross will be talking a little about why cloud computing is relevant today from an economic, business and technology standpoint. He'll be exploring some potential benefits – and pitfalls – of moving to the cloud and trying to outline what you should look for in a cloud computing provider to ensure the security of your data and applications.

Overall in the course of the live broadcast, you'll be able to absorb Gross's take on how the economy is accelerating a tectonic shift in IT. Geelan will be asking him how cloud computing supports the business and he will also be asking about the perceived barriers to implementing cloud, and how what the Unisys cloud strategy and offerings are and how they specifically address the key challenges of security, compliance and regulation, and application rewrites.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
