The RubyC conference shed light on the common issues of cloud-based projects, scalability enablement, and reduction of infrastructure costs.

Exploring the cloud

Last month, Sergey Sergiyenko, Head of the RightScale team at Altoros and a Ruby instructor, held a session on sentient cloud management systems at the RubyC conference. The presentation covered the most common questions our customers raise when discussing cloud-related projects.
