Taking a Server-Side Application to the Cloud

Taking traditional Java server-side applications to the multitenant cloud entails lots of challenges. This session shares JFrog’s experience of creating a SaaS offering, which is currently being used successfully by the Java community.

The presentation starts by reviewing the challenges JFrog faced during the SaaS conversion. Next, it shares JFrog’s experience with the Amazon EC2 platform. It discusses the importance of automation and how the company uses tools such as Chef and Puppet for SaaS provisioning. Finally, it describes how creating a SaaS version of its product shifted JFrog’s way of thinking about software release. You will get recommendations on what’s required to successfully release both SaaS and downloadable versions of your product. The same principles apply when you discuss Oracle JD Edwards Cloud Computing at Syntax.
