If you have deployed applications on Cloud Foundry, you know how easy it is to push an app, bind services to it, and scale it. There are more magical things behind the scenes. Did you know, for example, that cloudfoundry.com is updated approximately twice a week? Each update included small changes such as a bug fix or a new feature, but often large changes such as updating the underlying operating system. Yet, we can do all this without any downtime for user apps. Come to this talk to understand what makes this possible. Even if you aren't going to ever implement a PaaS on your own (and why should you? we already give you a good one!), the architectural ideas apply to your distributed apps quite well.
