JBoss AS7 is fast, lean, flexible and the ideal engine to run in cloud deployments, especially when combined with the Red Hat PaaS offering - OpenShift.
In this deep dive presentation, Scott and Tobias will guide you through a number of scenarios from the initial cloud experience to more involved deployment and scaling strategies. We'll demonstrate how OpenShift's Express and Flex differ, how quickly and easily applications are deployed, how and when visibility into the application's performance matter, and finally how PaaS can scale and right-size your application dynamically.
