The Multi-Cloud Bootcamp Offers 200 FREE Seats @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Cloud Computing is evolving into a Big Three of Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure

200 Seats Are Expected To Be Taken Within 24 Hours Of This Offer

Multi-Cloud Bootcamp, being held Nov 4-5, 2014, in conjunction with 15th Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, CA, delivers a real-world demonstration of how to deploy and configure a scalable and available web application on all three platforms. The Cloud 360 Bootcamp, led by Janakiram MSV, an analyst with Gigaom Research, is the first bootcamp that introduces the core concepts of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based on the workings of the Big Three platforms - Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, and Azure VMs.

The Multi-Cloud Bootcamp, a two-day, interactive experience of dealing with the popular cloud platforms, will provide a big picture of cloud computing followed by a deep-dive into Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure VMs and Google Compute Engine. Based on a real-world scenario, the workshop walks you through deploying a scalable web application on AWS, Azure and the Google Cloud Platform. Attendees will not only get a clear understanding of IaaS but also the strengths and weaknesses of each cloud platform.

Master AWS, Azure and the Google Cloud Platforms in two days!

Participation in the Bootcamp is FREE but seating is limited to first 200 who sign up for the two-day education. (There is a $5 seat charge to assure that your seat is reserved.)

Bonus: The workshop includes a tutorial on using Docker and Linux containers with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. There will be a demo of packaging a web application as a Docker image and deploying it on all the three cloud platforms. Attendees will get to understand how to leverage Docker for developing and deploying portable, cloud-agnostic web applications.

Unique Methodology:

  • Presents the current state of cloud based on industry adoption trends
  • Provides the big picture of each cloud platform
  • Demonstrates migrating real-world web application to cloud
  • Introduces the common building blocks of cloud infrastructure
  • Compares and contrasts popular cloud platforms
  • Covers cutting-end technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes
  • High Availability
  • Fault Tolerance

Multi-Cloud Bootcamp Schedule

Day 1 - November 4th

8:00 - 9:00 am

IaaS Building Blocks & Platforms
A major aspect of public cloud involves the use of public-cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) foundations from major technology vendors. The Big Three in the current state of public cloud computing are Amazon Web Services Eleastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Google Compute Engine (GCE), and Microsoft Azure VMs (virtual machines). This session of the Multi-Cloud Bootcamp presents an overview of IaaS today and the role played by these major platforms.

The Role of Hybrid Cloud in Driving the Future State of Business
Gee Rittenhouse

11:00 - 12:00 pm

The Current State of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is gaining increasing amounts of enterprise IT budgets. There is still considerable debate about whether to employ onsite "private" cloud architectures, third-party "public" cloud architectures, or a hybrid. The reality is that hybrid cloud is emerging strongly throughout enterprises of all sizes, which in turn focuses a discussion on the major public-cloud providers. This session initiates the discussion of public cloud and three major providers: Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

General Session

4:00 - 5:00 pm

Amazon EC2 ,Part 1
Amazon Web Services is the pioneer in public-cloud IaaS with its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) services. Amazon [email protected] is described by the company as "a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers." The EC2 web services interface allows developers to obtain and configure capacity with what Amazon calls "minimal friction." This session introduces delegates to EC2.

5:00 - 6:00pm Amazon EC2, Part 2
Amazon EC2 is designed to provide complete control of computing resources while running within Amazon's massive cloud infrastructure. Part 2 of the EC2 instruction takes delegates through provisioning, scaling, capacity planning in real-time and over the longer term, the economics of using this service, and how to build failure-resilient applications.

8:00 - 9:00 am

Microsoft Azure VMs, Part One
Microsoft has become a major public-cloud IaaS provider by builing upon its ubiquitous presence within enterprise IT with its Windows operating system and .NET development environments. Azure was known as Windows Azure until 2014, when it was re-named. Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines (VMs) comprise the company's IaaS offering. Customers have control of the virtual machines they deploy, running within Microsoft's datacenters worldwide.

3:30 - 4:30 pm Microsoft Azure VMs, Part Two
Azure is known as a "fabric layer" within Microsoft's world of datacenters, with very specific characteristics and performance metrics. In Part 2 of the instruction on this platform, delegates are taken through provisioning, scaling, capacity planning in real-time and over the longer term, the economics of using this service, and how to build failure-resilient applications.
4:30 - 5:30 pm Google Compute Engine, Part One
Google Computer Engine (GCE) is now emerging as a legitimate competitor to EC2 and Azure VMs. The company has perhaps one million servers under its management worldwide, and has now focused resources on competing for the growing public-cloud IaaS market. This session introduces delegates to how Google has entered this competitive arena and what it offers to developers who are considering it.
5:30 - 6:30 pm Google Compute Engine , Part Two
GCE allows customers to launch virtual machines (VMs) in an initial increment as short as 10 minutes, and in increments as small as 1 minute thereafter. Part 2 of instruction on this platform outlines all the current features of GCE, how customers can deploy instances, what features are now available and how they compare to what enterprise IT management expects from a public IaaS. Persistent disks, images, and machine types are all covered.
