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.

Think all IaaS partners are created equal? Think again. In this InformationWeek webinar, we’ll walk through mapping your needs to key differentiators, such as VMs by API, block storage (including snapshots, restores, detaches and multiple machines connecting to a single volume). We'll also talk shop on object storage, the ability to collocate machines, and configuration management/orchestration.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Learn where Amazon Web Services is the best choice and where it is not;
  • Discover which features you need an IaaS provider to have (that some don’t); and
  • Achieve a successful hybrid cloud strategy.

Register for this webinar and learn about the key differentiators that can mean success for your IaaS project -- or defeat.
