It seems that on daily basis we hear about the birth of a hot, new Web 2.0 application that pushes the envelope and gets people buzzing. And as the masses begin to flock to these latest and greatest applications, developers need a scalable, reliable, and manageable hosting environment that can handle fluctuating growth. Enter the cloud which is providing developers with an easy, cost-effective and scalable approach for application hosting.

As developers continue to utilize cloud computing to create the next generation of applications, it will be increasingly important that they are developing on open APIs. With an open approach, customers know they can utilize the same great application they currently use with one cloud provider on any cloud provider, and developers can spend more of their time developing the next great app, instead of recoding an existing app to each provider. IaaS is the ‘go to’ place for applications in the cloud, and this discussion will provide an update on the developments in this space and what it means for the industry.

In this session, Wade Minter, cloud integration consultant for Rackspace Hosting, the leading driver of open cloud development, will discuss the history of the cloud and Web 2.0 applications while also speaking to how best to integrate the cloud into one’s application architecture through open APIs to enable dynamic, social and interactive features required in Web 2.0 applications.
