It’s not all fun and games in cloud land – application portability? Cross-cloud replication and bursting? That’s a tough one. These are hard issues with serious implications that we’ll examine in detail, digging into the subtleties between simply implementing a cross-cloud API and actually using it to get real work done. We’ll provide some simple demonstrations of how an application designed for one cloud might not work on another out of the box, and some easy ways to leverage multiple clouds with your existing OpenStack apps. Finally, we’ll wrap up with a set of recommendations on how to architect your application from the ground up to be hybrid cloud friendly.
