Welcome, developers!Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right. -Henry Ford
No doubt you've been hearing plenty about cloud computing -- how it can enable you to keep costs in check while alleviating development headaches like computing capacity, bandwidth, storage, and security. "Intriguing, sure," you might think, "but I don't have the time or the expertise to actually deploy anything in the cloud."
Think again... specifically, think databases. This week, developerWorks shows you how to quickly and painlessly deploy your database applications on the cloud using DB2 data server and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Never worked with cloud computing or DB2? No problem -- this step-by-step tutorial provides everything you need, including a helpful video demo. And be sure to explore the growing list of IBM products now available on Amazon EC2. Want to connect with others who work with cloud? Join the cloud community on My developerWorks. Can't stop thinking about databases? Stop by our Information Management zone. Need another Henry Ford quote? Here you go:
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it. -H.F.
