    Main topic - Wide-area Migration with Monterey, AS7, Seam, and jclouds

    Once again we have another live demo for you.

    Applications that span multiple clouds needn't be difficult to write: we'll demo how these technologies

    use an actor-bean model to make iteasy to build even highly complex transactional applications. 

    We'll then show how application mobility allows you to scale and to dynamically optimise placement,
    moving parts of the application to new locations on a fine-grained basis to reduce latency and improve performance.

    The Talk will be followed by Refreshments and General Discussion


    Break up about 8:30.
