Is your eCommerce solution ready for the cloud? Learn how to incrementally adopt cloud computing (specifically public Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service) and to marshal as much capacity as needed to handle peak holiday or special-event traffic.

Advances in the cloud over the past few years now make it possible to run an enterprise-class eCommerce platform out of a cloud. We'll help architects leverage these advances by covering:

  • Cloud service models (IaaS, PaaS, Software-as-a-Service) and deployment models (public, hybrid, private)
  • The impact of omnichannel retailing on platform architecture and deployment architecture
  • Building an auto-scaling solution that can quickly add or subtract hardware in response to real-time traffic
  • Re-applying what you already know about security to the cloud
  • Running a single eCommerce platform from multiple data centers, including several forms of multi-master
  • Creating a hybrid solution or deploy your entire platform in the cloud
  • Application and deployment architecture for "cloud native" through legacy eCommerce platforms
  • Using a SaaS for eCommerce, including content delivery networks and global site Load balancing services
