Cloud Expo Silicon Valley: The Evolution of Cloud Flexibility

ProfitBricks’ Pete Johnson to discuss how Cloud 1.0 falls short and how Cloud 2.0 offers the flexibility you’re looking for

It was supposed to be about flexibility, wasn't it? Cloud computing lets you alter your capacity as your demand fluctuates, something on-premise solutions could never do the same way. But, is the cloud as flexible as it could be? With cookie-cutter VM sizes, scalability that removes an entire former dimension, and reserved instance pricing that requires prediction we went to the cloud to avoid in the first place, the first generation of public cloud providers don't go as far as they could.

In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Pete Johnson, Chief Evangelist for ProfitBricks, will explain how Cloud 1.0 falls short and how Cloud 2.0 offers the flexibility you're looking for.
