Date: September 29, 2010
Webcast: The evolution of the application infrastructure
Time: 11:00 AM EDT
View the replay and download the presentation

As cloud computing continues to evolve, it has become clear that the application should take center stage as the central concept supported by the cloud. This means exposing  not shared hardware via virtual machines, but rather exposing shared middleware in support of your application. In this webcast, Greg Truty will discuss the evolution of cloud computing, the importance and value of application-centric clouds, and IBM's vision of Platform-as-a-Service. He'll also provide insight on ways to get started today with application centric cloud computing.

Meet the Presenter

Greg Truty
IBM Distinguished Engineer,  WebSphere Architect for Web Services, REST, and Cloud Services.
