Atlantic BT Sponsors Triangle Startup Weekend

Startups are near and dear to Atlantic BT. Wasn’t all that long ago (1998) our company was three people and a dog. Now at over 70 programmers, designers and Internet marketers we help startups realize their online web, mobile and marketing dreams.

We are proud to sponsor the Triangle’s Startup Weekend starting today, Friday the 13th, and running though Sunday. We know cool things will come out of this barnstorm of a brainstorm. We stand ready to help in any way possible. We are tool and program agnostic.  We find the best tool, application or technology to fit business problems not the other way around.

These days “best solution” covers an increasingly wide range of cool choices from SoLoMo (social, local, mobile) to Magento ecommerce solutions (we’ve recently become a Bronze Support Solution partner with Magento). We don’t curb entrepreneurial dreams we help startup heroes realize them.

I’m heading a small rebel force “attacking” Triangle Startup Weekend. If you see me over the weekend be sure to share your ideas, stories and battle plans. I’ve created  or co-founded 4 companies including FoundObjects.com, Dada Box, Poetryslam and Story Glasses and will be pitching a 5th this weekend called Near There Now.

Putting on one of these gigs is hard work, so thanks to everyone working to make the Triangle the Austin of the east coast. Best of luck to every entrepreneur this weekend.

Questions & Answers

1 Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
1 Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
1 What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
1 How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
1 Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.

1 Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
