Designing applications for the cloud has presented many new challenges and as more competitors enter the market, platform sprawl continues to be a serious threat. Join Rackspace Cloud experts as we discuss the merits of building on OpenStack, the open-source cloud platform and discuss key considerations you must take when designing, deploying and maintaining cloud applications powered by OpenStack. In this session we will discuss concepts such as polyglot persistence, modular design, service resiliency and configuration management. We will then take these principles and show you how we applied them to an application we’ve created to help you get ahead in the competitive cloud world, Margarine. Finally, we will walk through a DevOps transformation case study from one of Rackspace’s most innovative customers, HubSpot.
