Why Private PaaS Is Not an Oxymoron

Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Time: 10:00 - 11:00 AM PST (13:00 - 14:00 EST)

When you hear of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) what typically comes to mind are names like Heroku, EngineYard, DotCloud, and–hosted Public PaaS providers. With the increasing focus on development of SaaS applications and some clear advantages to placing IT infrastructure in the cloud, these PaaS providers have had some trouble gaining significant traction with enterprises despite obvious advantages.

However, there is an emerging trend where enterprises require PaaS capabilities, but are demanding it on their own terms. They want a PaaS behind their own firewall to enable a secure cloud–a private PaaS.

Join Bart Copeland, ActiveState CEO, to learn about:

  • The drivers for Private PaaS
  • Issues for enterprises moving development resources to the cloud
  • How a Private PaaS differs from a Public PaaS
  • What to consider when implementing and deploying a Private PaaS

US Patriot Act: Making the Case for Enterprise Private Cloud

Date: Thursday, December 1, 2011
Time: 10:00 - 11:00 AM PST (13:00 - 14:00 EST)

Is the US Patriot Act causing you to hesitate on leveraging the cloud in your enterprise? Do you want to leverage the power of cloud computing but unsure what the security and privacy implications are for sensitive corporate data? 

Corporations are thinking long and hard about the legal and regulatory implications of cloud computing. When it comes to actual corporate data, no matter what the efficiency gains are, legal departments are often directing IT departments to steer clear of any service that eliminates their ability to keep potential sensitive information out of the hands of Federal prosecutors.
Despite all the hype about every application moving into the cloud, some practical patterns are starting to emerge in the types of data corporations are willing to move to the cloud.  Learn how to create a secure, compliant, private platform and cloud for developing, distributing and managing enterprise applications.

Join Diane Mueller, Director Enterprise Product Management, as she discusses:

  • Implications of the US Patriot Act on Cloud Computing
  • What types of applications should stay on-premise
  • Classes of applications that best leverage the cloud
  • Moving to a Private Cloud Model
  • How to deploy an Enterprise Private PaaS
