Application Portability in a Multi-Cloud World
Director of Business Development RightScale
Track:Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise
Organizations today must consider many factors when choosing among cloud offerings from vendors such as Amazon, Google and Salesforce.com, but being able to port applications and avoid getting "locked in" to one cloud platform is critical, and must be a primary concern for anyone planning to move mission critical applications to the cloud. Cloud lock-in can result in being committed to one public cloud infrastructure which may or may not suit application requirements over time, or it can even prevent a business from moving applications between a public cloud and its own private enterprise cloud.
Organizations, however, can take steps to maximize application portability and minimize cloud lock-in by applying the basic lock-in rule-of-thumb: the higher the cloud layer you operate in, the greater the lock-in. This session will discuss how each cloud offering varies widely when it comes to lock-in and how customers can assess the differences before committing to a specific cloud infrastructure. It will also discuss how lock-in can affect private enterprise clouds and "cloudbursting."
