Agility In The Cloud: Google+ Hangout Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | August 6, 2013 3:00 pm

Last week we discussed the importance of being agile in the cloud. This Hangout was based on a post from Wayne Wall’s Pillars of Cloudiness[1] series in which he looked at the five core building blocks all cloud apps should have. Below are some of the more major bullet points, hyperlinked to the moment in time we discussed them in in the Hangout. I have also embedded the video of the entire conversation at the end[2] of this post. Don’t forget to come Hangout with us this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST on the Rackspace Google+ page[3].

Those are some of the highlights from last Thursday’s discussion on agility. Remember, we are going to be back in action this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST when we will host a Hangout on the Rackspace Google+ page[3] about horizontal scaling, another one of the Pillars of Cloudiness. We’ll see you then!
