Are you interested in learning practicing how to migrate your apps to any cloud on demand with 0 downtime? Do you want to learn how to do things like scale IaaS and intelligently move your apps around by using portable, self-managed apps and policy-driven automation? Do you want to practice multi-cloud automation? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, join your fellow cloud enthusiasts at the CenturyLink Bay Area User Group technical meet up on Wednesday, July 28 from 4pm to 7pm at the luxurious Elks Lodge #3 in downtown San Francisco for food, drinks and hands on, technical exercises to practice migrating your apps to any cloud on demand with 0 downtime.
What will I practice at this event?
Bring your laptop to learn and practice:
• How to automatically deploy workloads to multiple public clouds How to use an application focused cloud operations platform
• Migrate your apps between multiple clouds on demand with zero downtime
• At the end of this event you will have a better understanding of how using portable, self-managing applications can provide flexibility, resiliency, scalability and allows any app to be operated anywhere.
What business problems does this solve?
Freedom for developers – Allow developers to focus on what they do best without having to worry about certain architectural constraints, multiple layers of orchestration or platform specific programming Rapid time to value – Migrate your legacy apps and endow them with cloud like features: app mobility, scaling up/down, availability, performance and security standards across multiple clouds Visibility and Control – Use a single pane of glass to manage, monitor and control operations of your apps, including performance data Cost reduction – Enable infrastructure-agnostic and cloud independent, distributed workloads on monthly billed platforms. Reduce the need for multiple orchestration solutions. Business Continuity – Policy driven orchestration to move your apps on demand to reduce risk and maintain availability
Join us to learn how to demonstrate how your apps can run and scale on demand on any infrastructure, all under your complete control.
