Cloud Computing and ITIL: Do it right this time!

And take a training before you do the standardization.

Workshop program:

DAY 1:

Cloud Language: The Taxonomy of On-Demand Computing
Grids. PaaS. There are dozens of names to describe on-demand computing, and lots of confusion. This block brings some order to the chaos, offering a comparison of different on-demand computing models including hardware-as-a-service, custom platforms, and large-scale compute infrastructures..

Cloud SLAs
How reliable is the cloud?
Enterprises demand predictable service levels, reliable delivery, and committed availability. This block will look at what level of service we should demand - and can expect - from cloud computing infrastructure, as well as tools and best practices for measuring it.

Running Clouds: What the Big Guys Know
A very small number of companies generate the vast majority of today's web pages, from Facebook applications to hosted sites. With compelling economics, they may be running most of the world's computing in a short while. This block gets behind the scenes of some of the world's Big Cloud operators for a look at what they know about running large-scale computing.

DAY 2:

The Big Migration: Moving the Data Centre to On-Demand
There's a slow, inexorable exodus going on. First bursty seasonal computing, then storage, then eventually all but specialized tasks are moving out of the corporate data centre and into the cloud. But this big migration is a gradual one. There are times when it doesn't yet make sense to embrace on-demand computing. We'll chart the course of a migration into the cloud to enable you to become innovators in on-demand provisioning and deployment.

Managing Applications in the Cloud
When it's your application on their infrastructure, you have a hard time knowing what's happening. On-demand computing environments often hide details from application operators as a result of their virtualization. New computing means new management. This block looks at emerging best practices for managing applications when they're running in the cloud.

Platform-as-a-Service: Building Business Processes in the Cloud
Cloud computing is often referred to as hardware-as-a-service, implying openness and complexity. At the other end of the spectrum, SaaS does not offer much room for customization. But there's a middle ground, where providers offer an on-demand platform, often with its own coding and conventions. This block looks at how companies can build custom applications that run in the cloud, letting the platform provider worry about operations and data integration.

Program inclusions:

- Courseware

- V3 Benchmarking guide

- Cloud computing book

- Morning tea, executive style lunch and afternoon tea

Avastu Blog is migrating to; 1st Jan 2009 live


I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)

Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

What won't change

Links/Referrals: I will be redirecting the links (all links which you may have cross-posted) to - so you don't have to do anything in all your posts and links. Although, I would urge however that you do change the permalinks, especially on your blogs etc yourselfThis blog is not going away anywhere but within a few months, I will consider discontinuing its usage. I won't obviously do …

Get Vyatta Virtual Appliance, now VMware certified!

We all know Vyatta, don't we?

Vyatta, the leader in Linux-based networking, today announced that its open-source networking software has received VMware Virtual Appliance Certification, thereby providing customers with a solution that has been optimized for a production-ready VMware environment. The company also announced it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program. As a member of TAP, Vyatta will offer its solutions via the TAP program website. With the Vyatta virtual appliance for VMware environments, organizations can now include Vyatta’s router, firewall and VPN functions as part of their virtualized infrastructure.

Vyatta combines enterprise-class routing and security capabilities into an integrated, reliable and commercially supported software solution, delivering twice the performance of proprietary network solutions at half the price. Running Vyatta software as virtual appliances gives customers many more options for scaling their data centers and cons…
