Architecting for Failure: Why Cloud Architecture is Different

Michael Stiefel presents "Architecting for Failure: Why Cloud Architecture is Different"

For this meeting, DevBoston Waltham and Cambridge will be joining forces with the Boston Azure Cloud User Group.  The speaker this month will be Michael Stiefel and he'll be presenting "Architecting for Failure: Why Cloud Architecture is Different". 

The meeting format will be slightly different than usual because we're doing a joint meeting.  The schedule will be:

  • 6:00-6:25 - Gather, grab some pizza (which will be provided), socialize
  • 6:25-6:30 - Call to order! Take a seat
  • 6:30-6:55 - Bill Wilder: A first look at the Windows Azure "Hadoop as a Service" CTP
  • 6:55-7:10 - Happy 10th Birthday INETA & other announcements
  • 7:10-8:25 - Michael Stiefel is featured speaker: Architecting for Failure: Why Cloud Architecture is Different
  • 8:25-8:30 - Swag!
  • 8:30-?:??  - Head out for a cold beverage (usually to The Muddy)

In the featured talk, Michael Stiefel will explain why architecting for the cloud requires different assumptions around what can fail, when it can fail, why it fails - and will explain what we can do about it. Featured speaker Michael Stiefel is Principal of Reliable Software, Inc. and an expert with cloud computing and the Windows Azure Platform.

In the opening talk, Windows Azure MVP Bill Wilder will provide a brief overview of Hadoop, its role in Big Data, and get a glimpse into what Microsoft is working on with Hadoop, including a sneak peak at the Windows Azure Hadoop as a Service offering which is currently in private CTP.

    Both talks (on Hadoop and Cloud Architecture) were very worthwhile and well-presented. There was more technical content than I expected -- and that was great!

    Both presentations were excellent: full of useful material and very well explained.

    Good ideas and principles for cloud architecture and SaaS providers in general.

    The presentation were good. Where I think it could get better is getting more into what people may not have had the chance to read or realy get into and less and less into Computer Scinece principle exposure. I am going to the meetings to get information about something I didn't get into and I want to know enough to decide if I need to get into or not when my daily work requires decisions toward new technologies.

    I found both presentations to be very entertaining and engaging. The depth of the material presented was just right for the time allotted.

    Hi Michael, thanks for the informative (and entertaining) presentation! On my way home, I realized that I still don't know the answer to the question asked at the beginning of your presentation:
    Is the only difference between traditional hosting and cloud computing that cloud computing solutions design for failure?

    I just had to cancel - so *right now* :) - there is room!

    I would love to attend. Is there any wiggle room?
