Summary of 'Cloud Computing for the Rest of Us: IT Infrastructure on the Shoulders of Giants.'

Cloud computing is the new "web 2.0" - everyone's got one.  We'll focus on                                                  
Linux-specific infrastructure offerings "in the cloud" and how you can use                                                  
them in production today.  By taking advantage of on-demand, pay-as-you-go                                                  
Linux servers and related services, you can save money today while                                                          
simultaneously increasing performance and availability.  We will get                                                        
hands-on during the meeting with Linux cloud solutions from Amazon and                                                      
RackSpace.  We'll also take a step back and look at architectures for                                                       
scaling Linux services "in the cloud".
