To effectively bring a social app to the market, companies must focus not only on design and marketing, but also on the underlying – and often unglamorous – job of managing their IT infrastructure. The hope, if not the expectation – is to achieve rapid and massive popularity across the world. But many compute infrastructures are not capable of handling unpredictable growth and scaling, much less support fast, day-to-day development cycles. In the fast paced social app industry, development teams must have the technology agility to stay ahead of the curve. The audience will learn best practices for launching apps in the cloud and discover how industry leaders including Zynga, Playfish, and Crowdstar are using cloud computing to manage and grow their infrastructure. This session will also discuss the use of cloud computing throughout the entire application lifecycle -- from concept and development to end-of-life. This session is sponsored by RightScale.
