Joe began his career by winning the 1996 Weird Software Contest with the Mutant Chicken Races and creating the first Windows-based iPod application. Over the past ten years, Joe transitioned from development to systems design and data analysis, creating the first BuildFax engines in 2003, the original architecture in 2007, and designing the Pragmatic Extract-Transform-and-Load (PETL) architecture that has made the current national footprint possible. In addition to running technology and product at BuildFax, Joe also regularly contributes articles to InformationWeek on the cloud and startups. Joe graduated with degrees in English and Mathematics from Williams College and has a law degree from Yale Law School.

Part of the appeal of a hybrid cloud, where IT mixes and matches on- and off-site infrastructure and applications based on the best fit, is that spikes in demand for an in-house service can trigger a burst to public cloud assets. However, such flexibility isn’t easy to achieve.

This interactive webinar will explore in greater detail how to:

  • Identify key usage spikes that could be thrown to the cloud
  • Build a hybrid cloud strategy for both on- and off-site infrastructures
  • Integrate flexibility into the key operations to ensure reliable performance
  • Address concerns from partners that the cloud will make IT obsolete.

Join us for this Network Computing webinar to learn best practices to maximize flexibility.
