Compuware announced that its Director of Cloud Computing, Doug Willoughby, presented a session on how deploying cloud-based, borderless applications impacts performance management at SYS-CON's 5th Cloud Expo in New York City. The session, titled: "Performance Management for Composite Applications," took place on Wednesday, April 21, 2010.
Willoughby also provided attendees with a sneak preview of a new collaborative cloud computing community web portal sponsored by Compuware called CloudSleuth. A beta version of the CloudSleuth goes live today, with the site officially launching later this summer. CloudSleuth uses real data to drive discussions about cloud performance management.
In his presentation, Willoughby discussed how the benefits of cloud computing can deliver new IT functionality to the business quickly and at low initial cost. In addition, he highlighted how borderless applications present a new challenge to IT departments: managing application performance and availability when the application assets cross organizational and geographic borders. Such borderless applications seamlessly integrate cloud, web and data center services together, while maintaining the end-user perspective that they are single applications. Willoughby then detailed how enterprises can tackle the performance challenges presented by this new application delivery model.
"While mission-critical applications will still typically be provided by company-owned resources in the data center, IT departments will increasingly use cloud-based applications and services to more rapidly deliver new functionality to the business," noted Willoughby. "The success of such efforts will depend on tools that stop the finger-pointing and give IT performance visibility across the enterprise and Internet to cloud services providers. I look forward to sharing use cases and real world examples with my peers at Cloud Expo 2010 and to detailing how the entire IT community--IT operations, cloud service providers, architects and developers--can build and deploy cloud-based applications with optimal performance in mind."
