Articles & Feature Stories
Cloud computing's potential doesn't begin and end with the PC. Cloud services are increasingly consumed on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. Although modern desktop and mobile operating systems may still not be developed with a “cloud first” strategy, many third-party app developers are working at integrating with cloud services and using cloud back-ends to process and serve content. In his session at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Steve Tack, CTO of APM Solutions at Compuware, will discuss how mobile cloud computing can help overcome these limitations while improving the customer experience as businesses determine their mobile strategies in the light of increasing complexities and fragmentation of mobile platforms and devices.
Platfora Wants to Make Sense Out of Hadoop
Platfora, a Hadoop analytics start-up, has gotten $5.7 million in Series A money from Andreessen Horowitz and the CIA’s venture arm In-Q-Tel. The fledging is trying to make pretty, understandable graphs out of big petabytes-size Hadoop data. Its product, which will compete with Datameer’s, won’t be available until next year. It says Hadoop lacks the interactivity and sophisticated reporting capabilities needed by business users. It’s aiming to work with existing Hadoop clusters, including Cloudera, MapR and Amazon EMR, among others, and automatically turn the questions business users pose into dimensional and predictive dashboards, reports and insights.
Microsoft Previews Windows 8
It’s maybe a year before any Windows 8 products come out but Microsoft started pushing what it called its “re-imagined,” next-generation operating system to developers this week at its Build conference in California. Evidently it’s trying to freeze the market before its PC empire is utterly chipped away by the upstart Apple and Android. Microsoft is supposed to be “re-imagining” all its widgetry “from the chipset to the user experience” to run on or through the cloud, an exercise that’s supposed to equate to re-imagining Microsoft itself while Windows remains at its core and every business is cloud-optimized and tied together. Backward-compatible with Windows 7, on which it is based but requiring less memory, Windows 8 is both a leap into OS-disenfranchising cloud services and a tablet catch-up – at least for ARM tablets. It made no firm promises about Intel tablets but reassured the ...
IT is sexy again: enterprise mobility is at the top of the priority list of most organizations nowadays. However, the dream of the mobile enterprise is permeated with challenges in areas such as identity, device management, application management, and data sharing among many others. In recent years, the evolution of cloud infrastructures has become an ideal vehicle to address most of these challenges and enable the next generation of mobile applications in the enterprise. In his session at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Jesus Rodriguez, Chief Architect of Tellago, Inc., will explore the patterns, best practices and techniques to enable the next generation of enterprise mobile applications by leveraging cloud infrastructures. He will highlight how cloud platforms can enable capabilities such as management, security, device provisioning, data sharing, and messaging among other key asp...
Cloud start-up Dome9 Security says it’s got the first multi-platform firewall management system in the industry. It automates and centralizes the complex, manually hard-to-handle firewalls embedded in all server operating systems using dynamic policy controls, turning those firewalls into a user’s front line of defense. Fresh out of beta, the SaaS widgetry works with hosted and cloud servers, dedicated and virtual, public and private, and is aimed at both the enterprise and service providers. It’ll be available as a service on the GoGrid cloud. It’s supposed to be elastic and scalable, just like the cloud, deploying consistent policies across servers. The widgetry blocks administrative access to the ports that hackers use to get in. The ports are closed by default and open only when, for whom, and for as long as it is needed. Generally that’s no more than an hour.
A selection of some of the many themes & topics to be discussed at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (9th Cloud Expo) - being held November 7-10, 2011, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA. The markets may still be melting, but Cloud Expo is definitely coming of age!
We are seeing dramatic shifts as our planet becomes smarter. These shifts are changing the way business and society work. At the center of this change is Information Technology – the way it is accessed, applied, and architected. At the same time, IT leaders are faced with the challenge to do more and support aggressive business growth, while reducing costs. We are entering the next era of computing – Smarter Computing. An era of insight for discovery powered by efficient and innovative IT, and made possible through the integration of big data in optimized systems and innovative IT delivery models such as cloud computing. Enterprises are adopting cloud computing to not only change the economics of IT, but help drive transformation and new business outcomes.
As 'the cloud' becomes the mainstream platform for IT innovation, platform architects will combine smart devices, global networks, and application models inspired by Twitter and Facebook to let people do what they do best: recognize what’s not normal, and either address the problem or pursue the opportunity. The first decade of cloud computing decisively demonstrated that massively sharable/scalable systems can shrink operating costs and slash development delays, but the era of 'Cloud 2' goes farther to turn the cloud model from a perceived challenge into a compelling avenue for IT innovations that need not compromise security or governance.
Platform Computing is the leader in cluster, grid and cloud management software ― serving more than 2,000 of the world’s most demanding organizations. For 19 years, Platform Computing’s workload and resource management solutions have delivered IT responsiveness and lower costs for enterprise and HPC applications.

The migration of simple applicat...
Big Data has become very popular as what can probably best be described as "loosely structured large scale data," i.e., data sets of relatively small files. For example, log files for analytics purposes. These data sets can become so large that they cannot be stored with traditional technologies (such as relational databases). The exponential growth in unstructured data sets with movies, pictures and documents has created a similar situation for large files: companies are aggregating data beyo...
Cloud computing provides near-effortless on-demand infrastructure resources. But ultimately, enterprises only care about the workloads/applications that run on these cloud infrastructures. Today’s workloads can be very complex with multiple layers of applications, interfaces and dependencies. Managing and operating these workloads holistically is important to drive the next level of efficiency. Similar to cloud computing, it should be possible for workloads to be simply defined, operated and man...

Cloud Computing Bootcamp at Cloud Expo 2011 Silicon Valley
Want to make sense of the hottest new concept in Enterprise IT? Want to understand in just hours what experts have spent many hundreds of days deciphering? Cloud computing is a technology that has rapidly evolving peppered with a lot of hype along the way. Customers find it hard to navigate through this and make sense of what aspects of this technology will give them real business benefit. Cloud Computing Bootcamp, led by our 2011 Bootcamp Instructor Larry Carvalho, is a great way to get a practical understanding of this technology. We offer multiple days of actionable insight into what vendor offerings are currently available and help you comprehend their strategy. The ever-popular Bootcamp, which is now held regularly around the world, is being held in conjunction with the 9th Cloud Expo, November 7-10, 2011, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.
The Secret Behind The Incredible Growth of Cloud Expo
I can't comprehend that any event producer anywhere in the world today would answer this question by picking any one of the five available options presented. "A leading tool?" What do you mean by "a leading tool?" What other tools would you possibly have in this day and age? This question, the survey itself and its participants belong to the last decade. I personally don't use email anymore; I communicate through "Twitter." We don't do press releases unless we have to; we tweet stories to our roughly 12,000 followers in 8 channels. The news gets amplified to hundreds of thousands instantly. Even during Cloud Expo, we reach more people by Twitter than the announcements we make through loudspeakers in the convention centers. I would love to contact the people who are conducting this survey and ask them if any company answered their first question as "don't really consider it." In an age where I personally hail a cab at an airport through Twitter, I can't possibly comprehend which century bubble those people might be living in.
CTO Power Panel: Has Cloud Changed Enterprise IT?
Is there still a distinction between public, private and hybrid cloud? In this fast-moving high-level CTO Power Panel held at the 8th International Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City, June 6-9, 2011, Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan discusses this and other topics such as cloud security and innovation in the cloud with Rich Wolski, CTO and Co-founder of Eucalyptus Systems; Vineet Tyagi, Head of Impetus Labs at Impetus Technologies; Bill Zack, Architect Evangelist with Microsoft; Scott Chasin, CTO at McAfee Content & Cloud; Mark Hinkle, Vice President of Community at Cloud.com; Logan McLeod, Director of Cloud Strategy at Dell; and Zach Smith, COO at Voxel.
A selection of some of the many themes & topics to be discussed at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (9th Cloud Expo) - being held November 7-10, 2011, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA. The markets may still be melting, but Cloud Expo is definitely coming of age! In his Cloud Expo session, The Basics of Automating a Cloud Storage Service, Abiquo's Azmir Mohamed will be discussiong how the complexity of combining server virtualization with storage virtualization, automation, self-service catalogs and other enabling technologies has become a huge barrier for the IT teams who have to deliver the cloud services. The good news, he will be telling Cloud Expo delegates, is that some cloud vendors have recognized this issue and have partnered to deliver integrated solutions offering the flexibility and cost benefits of cloud on top of familiar infrastructure products. At the 8th International Cloud Computing Expo in New York City in June 2011, Jill Tummler Singer - CIO of the National Reconnaissance Office - answered the question: "Is Enterprise Cloud Computing for real?" In a follow-on session at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (9th Cloud Expo), called Riding the Enterprise Cloud Computing Wave of Change into the Future, she will be discussing key elements needed for a triumphant enterprise cloud computing migration and highlight strategies (including security advantages found in the cloud) to ensure that no one crashes and gets caught in the riptide of this rapidly emerging technology.
Abiquo CEO Pete Malcolm to Keynote at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley
There is one constant in data centers: Application groups always need more. Until recently, apps have been at the mercy of IT operations to feed their need. In his Keynote at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Pete Malcolm will discuss how with the advent of public cloud offerings, apps can bypass ops entirely and get the resources they need with just a few clicks and a credit card. What does this mean for the future of IT ops? Pete Malcolm is CEO of Abiquo, a leading vendor of Cloud infrastructure management solutions. Described by SYS-CON's Jeremy Geelan as "a beacon of light amid the murky fog surrounding Cloud Computing", Malcolm is the inventor of the term "Resource Cloud", a concept which provides complete separation between physical infrastructure providers and virtual enterprise consumers, with substantial benefits to both. Malcolm was previously founder and CTO of Orchestria, Benchmark Capital's first European Entrepreneur-in-Residence, and a Senior Vice President with CA, Inc.
The World's 30 Most Influential Cloud Computing Bloggers Live on Cloud Expo Website!
Ulitzer.com announced "the World's 30 most influential Cloud bloggers," who collectively generated more than 24 million Ulitzer page views. Ulitzer's annual "most influential Cloud bloggers" list was announced at Cloud Expo, which drew more delegates than all other Cloud-related events put together worldwide. "The world's 50 most influential Cloud bloggers 2010" list will be announced at the Cloud Expo 2010 East, which will take place April 19-21, 2010, at the Jacob Javitz Convention Center, in New York City, with more than 5,000 expected to attend.
What Is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is becoming one of the next industry buzz words. It joins the ranks of terms including: grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, clustering, etc. Cloud computing overlaps some of the concepts of distributed, grid and utility computing, however it does have its own meaning if contextually used correctly. The conceptual overlap is partly due to technology changes, usages and implementations over the years. Trends in usage of the terms from Google searches shows Cloud Computing is a relatively new term introduced in the past year. There has also been a decline in general interest of Grid, Utility and Distributed computing. Likely they will be around in usage for quit a while to come. But Cloud computing has become the new buzz word driven largely by marketing and service offerings from big corporate players like Google, IBM and Amazon.
Cloud Expo, Inc. Announces Cloud Expo 2012 New York Venue
SYS-CON Events announced today that Cloud Expo 2012 New York, the 10th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, will take place June 11-14, 2012, at the Javits Center in New York City. The International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo series is the world's leading Cloud-focused event and is held three times a year, in New York, Silicon Valley and in Europe. Over 400 corporate sponsors and 20,000 industry professionals have participated in Cloud Expo since its inception, more than all other Cloud-related events put together. "10th Cloud Expo is trending to be both the biggest ever and the best-attended event in the international Cloud Expo series to date, so it is only natural that we should be holding it in the biggest and best conference venue anywhere on the East Coast, the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center," stated Carmen Gonzalez, CEO of Cloud Expo. "If you are not at Cloud Expo New York, June 11-14, at the Javits Center, then you risk not getting the relevant parts of your IT infrastructure into the Cloud in time."
Top Two Technology Priorities for CIOs in 2011: Cloud & Virtualization
"New infrastructure and operations technologies such as cloud services and virtualization ... were selected by CIOs the most often and are the top-two technologies for 2011," said Mark McDonald, group vice president and head of research for Gartner Executive Programs, as the results were announced of the 2011 CIO Agenda survey by Gartner Executive Programs (EXP). The worldwide CIO survey was conducted by Gartner EXP from September to December 2010 and represents CIO budget plans reported at that time. According to the results, CIOs expect to adopt new cloud services much faster than originally expected. Currently, 3% of CIOs have the majority of IT running in the cloud or on SaaS technologies, but over the next four years CIOs expect this number to increase to 43%.
