Examining Horizontal Scaling: Google+ Hangout Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | August 13, 2013 3:00 pm

Last week during our Cloud Office hours, we talked about another one of the Pillars of Cloudiness, horizontal scaling. These hangouts have been inspired by the blog series created by Wayne Walls[1], and I would encourage you to check it out if you are getting started in the cloud. Some of the highlights from the hangout are listed below, and you can also watch the full video on horizontal scaling[2] at the end of the post.

Those are the highlights from the horizontal scaling Office Hours Hangout. Remember, we will be back to host the next show this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST on the next Pillar of Cloudiness: Modular Design. We will post more information on the Rackspace Google+ events page[14]. We look forward to seeing at the next Hangout!
