Wow, this year is flying by. I can't believe it's April already! This is usually a great month here in Massachusetts as all of the plants wake from their winter slumber. The Littleton campus is also looking forward to the annual Sons and Daughters Day where we are visited by our colleagues' children who come to learn about technology and related careers.
This week we bring you some great cloud content and a chance to learn more about your favorite developerWorks Rational authors.
The IBM Workload Deployer provides a customizable and easily managed cloud environment for application deployment, with on-demand resource provisioning. Learn how to use it with Rational Application Developer for WebSphere 8.0 to develop and deploy a simple cloud application.
Inside the hybrid cloud, Part 1: Redefine services and delivery methods
By: Grace Walker, IT Consultant, Walker Automated Services
Agility, scalability, and profitability are driving enterprises toward cloud computing. This is a response to the ever-changing economic, financial, and technical developments confronting business entities today. These changes demand new ways of thinking, working, and doing business. The development of the hybrid cloud is based in this new reality. Part 1 of this two-part series looks at the hybrid cloud, the services it makes available, and the new business paradigm it has engendered.
Behind the scenes with developerWorks authors
In our new Roll Call question-and-answer series in the IBM Rational Community, we ask one author each week a few questions and post responses. It's a quick, fun way to learn about and learn from your peers.
