PaaS Evolution and Building an Open Enterprise PaaS Cloud Platform

About the presentation
Mobile-first and cloud-native become basic requirements of enterprise IT cloud architectures. As an integral part of enterprise cloud computing solutions, PaaS plays a key role in continuously delivering business values and building sustainable competitive market advantages for enterprises. In this talk, we will discuss how to leverage open cloud technologies, such as cloud foundry and docker , to build an enterprise cloud platform solution that enables continuous innovation with mobile-first and cloud-native considerations and create an open cloud service ecosystem, including how to design their architectures; in particular, we will cover the following topics:

The Converged Cloud Platform: Integrating and consolidating different open cloud technologies to enable multi-granular resource allocation and management to provide the desirable flexibility and visibility for enterprise IT architectures and meet different business application needs:

Consolidating various cloud computing models , such as IaaS and PaaS, to offer computing resources ranging from infrastructure to applications.

Providing multi-granular computing resources, such as VMs and containerized resources of various sizes to meet applications' needs.

Streamlining app lifecycle management to for the users to effectively manage their app development, deployment, and operations.

Micro-Service Architecture: Leveraging micro-service architecture to build a flexible enterprise cloud platform that supports cloud-native enterprise applications.
