Rackspace customer and iconic beer maker Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) will take center stage this week in a webinar that highlights how it moved its applications from the data center to the Rackspace Cloud. For customers considering making the move to the cloud, this is a must-attend web event.
The webinar, set for Wednesday, October 3 at noon central (1 p.m. eastern) and hosted by appzero, will feature spirited discussion between Greg O’Connor, appzero CEO; Sean Wedige, CTO for the Global Enterprise Solutions segment at Rackspace Hosting; and Steve Blake and David McCluskey, Virtessential IT consultancy principals. The discussion will have a practical, business orientation with a strong technical slant.
The webinar will focus on PBR’s choice to move its datacenter to the Rackspace Cloud and how applications quickly took center stage. It will also highlight how PBR overcame the challenge of effectively moving highly modified, but largely undocumented, production apps to the cloud. With guidance from consultant Virtessential, PBR overcame the challenge using appzero’s zapp migration to automate identification, extraction, and migration of its Windows server apps to the cloud.
The webinar will also feature a demo of appzero’s migration capability, which enabled PBR to move apps from the data center to the cloud in minutes.
Register for the webinar now, and learn how PBR moved its apps to the Rackspace Cloud with appzero and Virtessential.
