Terremark and Engine Yard to Present at Cloud Expo East

Jason Lochhead and Tom Mornini to discuss Platform as a Service for the enterprise

Terremark Session at Cloud Expo

Ruby on Rails is a rapid application development platform that in just a few short years has come to be the default choice for open source developers creating public web and departmental applications. Although Twitter is the highest profile user, there are thousands of developers using Ruby on Rails (and its JVM version, JRuby) to create departmental and enterprise applications on enterprise clouds.

In their session at the 5th International Cloud Expo, Jason Lochhead, CTO of Hosting Services Terremark Worldwide, and Tom Mornini, Co-Founder of Engine Yard, will talk about the architecture and benefits of a Rails-based Platform-as-a-Service built on Enterprise Cloud infrastructure, and how it can help developers directly access and manage IT resources for their application development and deployment needs.
