The ability to move applications--for instance, from a private to a public cloud, or from one hosting provider to another--is a holy grail of cloud computing. But with a little planning, application portability in the cloud can be attained.

Cloud-vendor solutions deliver cloud technologies, but at a price, and typically impose inflexible limitations, forcing IT leaders to commit to specific hypervisors, infrastructure, and APIs. That reliance on vendor-specific technology–coupled with application-specific code dependencies, configuration/provisioning requirements, and data-security mandates–can prevent organizations from realizing the idealized benefits of the cloud: reduced costs, greater efficiency, on-demand scaling, disaster recovery, and deployment flexibility.

So how do you ensure portability, avoid vendor-lock-in, and reap the rewards of the cloud?

The answer is clear: Implement a cloud strategy that includes a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) layer. PaaS provides the interoperability of application and infrastructure cloud services across cloud providers or hosting technology. And you realize the benefits of true cloud-application portability.

In this webinar, we’ll share insights and trends to help your organization avoid vendor lock-in and easily move applications from one cloud to another without major re-engineering of your application or deployment scripts.

Join us for a free and informative webinar where we will highlight:

  • Why Portability Matters in Private & Public Clouds
  • Understanding & Identifying Your Applications’ Cloud Dependencies
  • Emerging Trends & Issues effecting Cloud Application Portability
  • Creating a Cloud Strategy optimized for Portability
  • Choosing a Technology Stack for Portability
  • Implementing a Portable Cloud Strategy with PaaS
