Ask the Architect: Join RightScale and AWS to Learn About Hybrid IT

If your organization is like many that are looking for more efficient ways to make their existing IT resources work alongside cloud-based compute, storage, and networking resources, you can benefit from enhancing your expertise in cloud architectures. RightScale has joined with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations the opportunity to attend an in-person Ask the Architect deep-dive session on hybrid IT in Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston.

A hybrid cloud architecture includes at least one public cloud and one private cloud. Organizations are increasingly combining on-premise and cloud resources in hybrid architectures to increase their scalability and agility. If the some 700 registrants for a recent RightScale webinar on hybrid IT are any indication, it's clear that the topic is of interest to enterprises. During the webinar we asked attendees to indicate the use cases they are addressing with hybrid IT implementations. Below are the top three use cases that attendees noted were of most interest to them. These results are in line with what we see when customers engage with RightScale professional services for hybrid IT projects.

We'll continue to dive into the hybrid IT topic throughout September and October with our Ask the Architect series of events across the country:

Los Angeles: September 10
New York City: October 1
Boston: October 15

RightScale Senior Cloud Solutions Architect Brian Adler says, "With these in-person events, we're expanding on what was shared in our recent webinar and delving deeper into the strategy behind deploying a hybrid IT environment." During each half-day event, cloud architects from RightScale and Amazon Web Services (AWS) will walk attendees through:

  • Strategic and technical considerations for cloud architectures
  • Hybrid IT use cases with real-world examples
  • Identifying the right applications for the cloud

These events are designed to be an opportunity for architects and senior IT managers to learn about hybrid IT from the experts at RightScale and AWS. In addition to the presentations, we'll have opportunities for attendees and presenters to discuss the issues together in an interactive Q&A session with whiteboarding.

The events are free — and include lunch — but attendance is limited to 25 individuals. To be one of them, register now.
