At Red Hat, we’ve been working hard toward a broad and open cloud stack that covers everything from IaaS through PaaS to SaaS. Among these, PaaS will likely be of most interest to the JBoss developer. But what exactly is this “platform”? What am I, as a developer, going to code against? And what am I, with my operator hat on, going to monitor and manage?
In this session, Mark Little will give attendees a look into the work that Red Hat has been doing around PaaS with community efforts such as SteamCannon and with product efforts such as the Makara platform, which Red Hat acquired last year.
We'll also discuss how you can develop your JBoss applications in the usual manner and then transparently migrate them to a JBoss-oriented PaaS using Makara. And we’ll show you how to set your applications to scale up and down based on evolving needs. We’ll also cover where Red Hat is going with PaaS in the future.
