'General Session | Fuel Your Cloud with Metered, Virtualized Middleware'
Traditional middleware is not suitable for the Cloud: it’s simply too complex and it does not provide a pay-per-use charge model. In this session we will discuss a new middleware paradigm for developing and integrating applications: metered, virtualized middleware. The virtualized attribute allows you to easily build and run new applications in the cloud reusing existing on-premise application functionality.

The metered attribute has two aspects: it provides a usage-based charge model for the middleware itself and it provides a built-in, metered charge model, much like electricity, for your new applications.
