CloudBusting is a FREE day-long tech conference hosted in association with
ITAG (Information Technology Association Galway) ,GMIT and supported by HP
will be held on the GMIT Galway campus on Friday, September 14th starting
at 10 am.
This day will give attendees insight on essential cloud topics including
available delivery models, market trends and benefits you can achieve by
implementing a cloud solution.
Learn about Cloud offerings from private, hybrid, to public cloud and
understand the differences between IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. It will be also be a
"cross-over" community event covering other aspects of the cloud with 5
tracks with over 20 sessions covering start-ups, Social Media, Web, music,
DevOps and Start-ups. Where ever you are on your cloud journey there should
be something of interest for you across the day with distinct tracks that
attendees can pick and choose content from to fit their unique needs.
The plan is that attendees will go away with the understanding of what is
necessary for the different ways to architect, develop and deploy
applications and IT solutions in the cloud but also to leave with some food
for thought on the web in general.
