The Datanauts Infrastructure Nerd Rocket blasts into the cloud, leaving ground zero for a new application destiny. As we rocket upwards through the atmosphere, we look down at our console and find a series of screens blinking warning lights and asking us hard questions.
Why are we traveling towards the cloud? How are we going to keep this rocket moving in the right direction? WARNING: Cloud security breaches ahead! WARNING: Cloud latency challenges! WARNING: Unexpected cloud expenses!
Chris and Ethan talk with John Merline, a network architect at a Fortune 500 company in the financial services industry who’s deeply involved with the cloud.
He’ll share his experiences moving data and applications to the cloud and working in a hybrid cloud environment, talk about why automation is essential, and discuss the implementation of a DevOps model within the IT organization.
He’ll also talk about what happens with legacy infrastructure and applications, and how it can’t just be ‘lifted and shifted’ to the cloud.
