CLOUD COMPUTING Architecting for the Cloud (STPL-SFIA6)

For several years, software architects have discovered and implemented several concepts and best practices to build highly scalable applications.

In today’s "era of tera", these concepts are even more applicable because of ever-growing datasets, unpredictable traffic patterns, and the demand for faster response times.
This presentation will reinforce and reiterate some of these traditional concepts and discuss how they may evolve in the context of cloud computing.
It will also discuss some unprecedented concepts such as elasticity that have emerged due to the dynamic nature of the cloud.
This presentation is targeted not only towards cloud architects but also to ICT practitioners and academics who are interested in gaining a better understanding to move an enterprise-class application from a fixed physical environment to a virtualized cloud environment.
The focus is to highlight concepts, principles and best practices in creating new cloud applications or migrating existing applications to the cloud.
