You've probably heard about the cloud and how a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) can simplify your life by easing the deployment of apps. But you probably haven't seen too much on what a PaaS can do once you are up and running. This talk focuses on how to leverage OpenShift's deep monitoring and profiling capabilities to enable you to make intelligent performance tuning and scaling decisions. We'll also cover how to automate many of these tuning tasks. Using an example application, we'll explore when to tweak an application's code vs its architecture, how to tell deployment-related from distributed issues, and in general how to adapt your application to scale in the cloud. We'll also look at using alerts to link your environments with Continuous Integration on one end and Disaster Recovery and Georedundancy on the other.
