Over the past few weeks, Scott Mattoon, John Stanford and I have been documenting infrastructure patterns to help application developers architect for cloud computing environments as part of a larger program around enabling cloud computing for our customers. It's been an interesting project, as cloud computing is both very new, but based on some very old concepts.
On Monday, we will be presenting our work in progress at CommunityOne West in San Francisco's Moscone Center. Around the same time, we hope to move our work into the public view on wikis.sun.com for comments and contributions. I'll post something here as soon as it happens.
Our talk will highlight three sets of pattern domains: provisioning, monitoring and resource administration. You can expect to hear talk of motivations and implementations, with sequence diagrams, architecture pictures and code snippets for illustration.
If you are attending the conference (you can still sign up for free here), our presentations will be:
June 1, 2009 from 2:40 to 3:30pm PDT
Practical Cloud Computing Patterns
Gateway 104, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA
If you can't be in San Francisco for the conference, I believe you can watch our presentation on a live webcast: Check here for details. We are "2:40 - 3:30 pm | Practical Cloud Computing Patterns (Gateway 104)" under the Cloud Platforms topic.
