At IT Wonder Lab we share best practices for application deployment and maintenance of cloud infrastructures.

Most demos and examples available on the Internet or even shown during vendor events, are just plain simple and don’t apply engineering standards. Many are insecure, don’t scale, and don’t show the full potential of the product.

Many companies migrate to the Cloud taking sub-optimal decisions or advice from vendors that might not be the best in the long run.
