Video Podcast: The Future of AEM in the Cloud

Title image

In preparation for Adobe Summit week, I sat down (well socially-distanced, unfortunately!) with two colleagues at ICF Next to discuss the future of AEM in the cloud.  We give some context for folks to inform their decision-making process on whether or not it’s a good time to move their marketing workloads to AEM as a Cloud Service.  And, if not, what their current strategy should be.

As covered in other posts on AEM as a Cloud Service, this is a pivotal time in marketing website infrastructure and project planning.  For the first time, it’s technically possible (though maybe or maybe not recommended) to have an enterprise-grade experience management platform running your site entirely in a managed cloud services.  There are a lot of important things to know about whether or not your Adobe-powered internet properties should move to cloud services, and it’s not a black-and-white proposition at all.

In this podcast, we discuss:

  • What AEM as a Cloud Service consists of
  • A basic explanation of AEM architecture, explaining the differences between self-managed AEM hosting in the cloud, and AEM as a Cloud Service
  • Diagrams of both infrastructure paradigms
  • What you need to know about Continuous Integration and AEM as a Cloud Service
  • How AEM as a Cloud Service affects maintenance and the workload on your DevOps personnel
  • How AEM as a Cloud Service makes use of the AEM Desktop App less terrifying for your Sys Admins
  • Whether or not you need to be on AEM 6.5 before attempting to migrate to AEM as a Cloud Service
  • Limitations and gotchas of running AEM as a Cloud Service, including log aggregation (Splunk, etc) and Application Performance Monitoring (APM).

Speakers in this podcast are:

Please give the video a watch, and let us know what other questions you have on the new AEM cloud offerings, and we’d love to do another podcast segment to cover them!
