Discover how simple cloud programming can be when you understand application mobility.
Application mobility is a design principle that emphasizes being able to carve an application into discrete, interconnected segments; distribute these across different systems; and move any part of the application at any time, to anywhere in the world. By following this principle, you get scalability and portability for free; the intelligence comes in when you as a DevOp focus on what mobility can do beyond this. Whether driven by cost or by latency, whether constrained by compliance or trapped by terabytes, with application mobility in your arsenal you're on top of cloud.
This tutorial will cover all aspects of the build-run-manage lifecycle for systems which can benefit from intelligent application mobility. You'll learn how Cloudsoft's Monterey Studio leverages familiar Java, OSGi, Eclipse, and Spring patterns to make it easy to develop and deploy globally distributed applications, and you'll see first-hand the benefits of being able to optimize for location. You'll also receive a voucher for Amazon Web Services or GoGrid to test this out for yourself.
Alex Heneveld is co-founder and CTO of Cloudsoft Corporation, the company which produces the Monterey platform for intelligent application mobility. Alex has been an Eclipse fanboi since before the moons of Jupiter, and has used it in projects ranging from a theorem prover IDE, to visual policy-based automation, through to the Monterey Studio for designing and managing distributed transactional systems. Previously Alex used vi.
Aled is VP of Engineering at Cloudsoft, with over a decade's experience developing distributed applications mostly in the enterprise sector. Particular areas of interest include concurrency, fault tolerance, messaging, and how to simplify development of scalable distributed transactional applications. Prior to joining Cloudsoft, Aled was chief architect at Enigmatec Corporation. He holds a PhD (Computer Science) from the University of St Andrews.
Adrian founded the open source project jclouds last march, and is actively engaged in cloud interoperability and devops circles. Recent efforts include vCloud ecosystem engineering at VMware, Java integration at Opscode, and cloud portability efforts at Cloudsoft. Adrian's currently consulting under Cloud Conscious LLC.
