PaaS Deathmatch

We are excited to announce new series of `PaaS Deathmatch`panel discussions, co-hosted with 4th annual Cloud Slam’12 conference May 30-31, 2012 in San Francisco.

In this engaging format of knock-out panel discussions, “Players” (accompanied by one of their clients) will defend their platforms by presenting use cases / show benefits / discuss successes based on PaaS deployments.

This inaugural PaaS Deathmatch series aims to cover following topics:

  • Depth vs Breadth: when do you need single language PaaS or multiple language PaaS
  • IT and business perspectives on cloud platforms: problems and solutions, developer/user adoption; open source vs proprietary; application frameworks (Spring, GWT, Rails, Django etc.)
  • Future directions of cloud platforms (Private vs Hosted / Public PaaS)
  • Additional platforms: integration, security, middleware
