CTO Power Panel: Has Cloud Computing Changed IT for the Better?

Date: Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 @12:45pm

This fast-moving industry discussion panel, moderated by Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan, will liven up your lunch-hour by answering such questions as:

How fast will the last remaining barriers to enterprise-wide cloud adoption melt away?

Are truly secure public clouds feasible, for example, or only private ones?

How exactly does a company or organization go about deciding whether to migrate only specific applications to the cloud - such as storage or security - or their overall IT infrastructure?

How much of an influence on cloud adoption is the US Government's continuing support of Cloud strategies for all government agencies?

How specifically do the panelists' own company offering/s assist CIOs and organizations/companies?

Will anything ever satisfy the thirst for security, compliance, and SLA assurances at the enterprise level of Cloud computing?

Do you agree with those analysts who say that 2012/13 will be The Year of the Cloud Database? If not, then what will it be the year of?

Crash Course in Open Source Cloud Computing 

Date: Thursday, November 10th, 2011 @ 9:05am

Speaker: Mark Hinkle, Director of Community

Very few trends in IT have generated as much buzz as cloud computing. This session will cut through the hype and quickly clarify the ontology for cloud computing. The bulk of the conversation will focus on the open source software that can be used to build compute clouds (infrastructure-as-a-service) and the complimentary open source management tools that can be combined to automate the management of cloud computing environments. The discussion will appeal to anyone who has a good grasp of traditional data center infrastructure but is struggling with the benefits and migration path to a cloud computing environment. Systems administrators and IT generalists will leave the discussion with a general overview of the options at their disposal to effectively build and manage their own cloud computing environments using free and open source software.

Build Your Own Highly Scalable Cloud with CloudStack

Date: Thursday, November 10th, 2011 @ 9:55am

Speaker: Sheng Liang, CTO Cloud Platforms Group. Former CEO/co-founder of

Creating scalable, agile and robust cloud implementations requires more than just a good hypervisor, some automation and a fancy UI. It requires a successful plan - not only identifying the chosen architecture, but also selecting appropriate workloads and understanding the costs of managing the infrastructure and delivering those workloads. While you may not plan for your cloud implementation to scale to that of some of largest of clouds, like the Nokia Research Centre or Zynga, you demand the flexibility CloudStack natively provides. This session will show you how CloudStack streamlines implementation and management of IaaS clouds.

Make sure you register for the event!
