Title: Distributed, Real-time Web Apps with

Abstract: is an open-source communication framework to help rapidly build real-time web applications as a collection of services. By providing configuration-free service-to-service and service-to-front-end messaging via WebSockets, makes it easy to decompose complex code into functionally simple components in a flexible, language-agnostic way. It augments the standard RPC model with bi-directional streaming, and provides a layer of auth and service discovery on top.

Presenters: Andy Knosp, Eucalyptus, VP of Product and Nati Shalom, GigaSpaces CTO

Title: Scaling and Managing Big Data Apps on Public Clouds

Abstract: The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data applications make on-demand, elastic cloud environments an ideal fit. However, managing your big data app on the cloud is no walk in the park - configuration, orchestration, H/A, auto-scaling are all quite complex when it comes to choosing the right cloud for you, whether it’s public, private or a hybrid cloud - which is where Cloudify and Eucalyptus come together. In this session, you'll learn how to deploy, manage, monitor and scale your big data apps on the open source Eucalyptus cloud platform using Cloudify, as well as easily test drive your apps locally and then migrate the workload to Amazon Web Services EC2.
