The Missing Piece in Cloud Computing
Geva Perry's Virtualization Session at the Virtualization Conference & Expo, June 23-24, in New York City
May. 30, 2008 12:45 PM
To achieve the full potential
of "cloud computing" we need a broader definition of virtualization,
and that is the complete de-coupling of the logical components of an application
(represented by the software stack) and the physical resources. In the case of
middleware, whether it is data access, messaging or the business logic, the
physical location of the resources should not matter to the developer and to
the end user.
This is not a trivial thing to do, especially when it comes to
data-intensive, stateful (transactional or otherwise) applications and
services. In this session we will explore the challenges and propose a
solution, including a live demo.
