Leveraging cloud-based resources enables an organization to adapt to the rapidly changing economic and technological environment with speed, simplicity, and efficiency while reducing the total cost of ownership. Ideally, the cloud is community-based and provides an integrated solution that is highly responsive, extremely reliable, and simple to provision and maintain. This session will offer a hands-on, highly interactive introduction to the management of cloud resources in virtual data centers and explore best practices. Learn tools to quickly provision and manage virtual machines for urgent computing needs, R&D, or "sandboxing." Please bring a laptop, tablet, or iPad to this session.
