Cloud Computing Journal: Adobe to Deliver ColdFusion in the Cloud

Alagad announced collaboration to help develop a Cloud-based implementation of the Adobe ColdFusion software

Cloud Computing Journal

Alagad announced it is collaborating with Adobe Systems to help develop a Cloud-based implementation of the Adobe ColdFusion software. The collaboration will enable customers to rapidly deploy and test ColdFusion 9 without installing or configuring the software on-premise. ColdFusion 9 is the latest release of the development technology for building dynamic websites and Internet applications. Alagad’s team worked with Adobe to create a private beta of ColdFusion 9 that can be deployed in minutes via Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

The Alagad team created an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) of ColdFusion 9 containing the application, libraries, data and associated configuration settings, which is still undergoing testing. Once verified and registered by Adobe, the AMI will enable users to deploy a full version of ColdFusion 9 via Amazon’s EC2.

“Alagad’s knowledge of ColdFusion and the EC2 platform was a significant benefit as we developed our Cloud-based strategy,” said Adam Lehman, product manager of ColdFusion at Adobe. “This collaboration has helped us deliver ColdFusion 9 in the Cloud, which offers the same benefits as an on-premise ColdFusion solution, while reducing investment in IT capital and time.”

Doug Hughes, president of Alagad, said, “We are excited to collaborate with Adobe to create an Amazon EC2 implementation of ColdFusion. Our hands-on experience with the software, paired with the success of our previous Cloud development, helped contribute to the development of the ColdFusion 9 in the Cloud beta program. The two companies look forward to furthering the adoption and deployment of Cloud computing.

The 4th International Cloud Computing Expo is co-located at the Santa Clara Convention Center with the 7th International Virtualization Conference & Expo.

Keynote & Breakout Session Speakers at the combined event at the Santa Clara Convention Center include:

DAY ONE KEYNOTE - November 2, 2009
The Time is Right for Enterprise Cloud Computing
by Richard Marcello, President of Systems & Technology, Unisys

Up to now you may have been reluctant to move your Enterprise application workloads to the cloud, fearing a lack of security in the cloud, compliance issues such as data location regulations and having to rewrite your applications. During his keynote, Rich Marcello will discuss the latest technologies and approaches that help knock down these barriers, creating the opportunity for attendees to now consider cloud managed services as part of their data center journey to secure "IT as a Service".

DAY TWO KEYNOTE: November 3, 2009
Cloud Computing Services at the Scale of the Internet
by Shelton Shugar, SVP Cloud Computing at Yahoo!

Yahoo! Cloud Services store and deliver web content, personalize content for consumers, optimize Ad selection and placement, improve search results, provide scalable virtual computing environments, and process and store enormous amounts of data to improve consumer experiences and drive innovation. This keynote will elaborate on how Yahoo! and consumers benefit from the Yahoo! Cloud Services that are in production today supporting web-serving properties and data processing environments.

DAY THREE KEYNOTE: November 4, 2009
Cloud Computing: Separating Hype from Reality
by Richard Sarwal, SVP of Development for Oracle Enterprise Manager

Enterprises large and small are drawn by the advantages of cloud computing - pay-for-use, self-service, elastic scalability tegration, compliance, lock-in, and long term costs of public clouds. Private clouds for the exclusive use of one enterprise can mitigate these concerns by giving the enterprise greater control. This keynote will explore how enterprises are likely to adopt public and private cloud computing, building on a foundation of virtualization infrastructure and management systems
