Practical Cloud Usage at Eli Lilly: No Hype, No FUD

One of the best video of a company explaining their move to Clous Computing.  Watch the video here and share your thought!
At Eli Lilly, we have gone through countless generations of IT systems and designs. In the past few years, hardware commoditization and software virtualization have greatly simplified environments that would have been vastly complex in the past. Previously esoteric architectures such as supercomputing environments have now been qualified and automated to a high degree. We feel that cloud computing is a natural progression within our environments. We have quickly reached the point where we are able to gain business value by running critical simulations in the cloud. Many of our early successes come from scientific research running in the cloud at scales we are unable to reach internally. In the meantime, we are building out the architecture to address the details and rigor needed to roll out more typical enterprise environments in the cloud. In the presentation, I will cover both of these categories. In addition, I will discuss some of the challenges, surprises, and mindset shifts we have encountered during our exploration of the cloud computing ecosystem.
Definitely this Burton Group Catalyst Conference in San Diego is a must!
