Re-Architecting your App for the Cloud
We show the different deployment models on AWS from a lift and shift of an application to straight EC2 instances, to incorporation of AWS services, to the eventual full PaaS or container model. We can help customers with the infrastructure architecture to support this evolution.
This demonstration will show the standard DevOps approach where users promote a production change into a running application.
