Do you have an interest in designing and building cloud-based solutions? Have you experimented with Cloud Providers such as SoftLayer and Amazon EC2 and are wondering how others have utilized these solutions as part of their core business? Do you want to see some of these solutions in action and talk to the architects behind them?

Look no further than Synergy 2010! I just wanted to announce a Geek Speak Live! session that I will be participating in called Get real with real-world cloud solutions: best practices & demos for successful implementation. I’m one of the lead architects behind the Citrix Demo Center project which is a cloud-based solution we have at Citrix for allowing our sales teams provision demo environments in the cloud on-demand. I’ve also led the design and development of a few other cloud solutions as well.

In this session, we will be providing a demonstration of the Citrix Demo Center. In addition to the demo, we will focus on the architecture behind this solution and some lessons learned along the way. Adam Marano will also be discussing CitrixCloud.net – our free site hosted in the cloud that allows anyone to try out XenApp from any type of device (Windows, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Thin Client, etc.).
