Cloud Computing: SoftLayer Launches Asia-Pacific Operations
SoftLayer Technologies on Tuesday announced the upcoming opening of the company’s new data center in Singapore and network Points of Presence (PoPs) in Singapore, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Beginning Sept. 23, customers can pre-order services in the new data center, to be deployed when the data center and PoPs officially “go live” on Oct. 3. “We are excited to bring our unique solutions to hosting to the Asia-Pacific region,” said Lance Crosby, Chief Executive Officer for SoftLayer. “We’ve had an international customer base for quite some time, with almost half of our 23,000 customers coming from more than 140 countries besides the U.S. But we couldn’t be happier to now have a truly international presence, putting our industry-leading solutions so much closer to our customers and their countless end users.”
ScaleMP Makes Virtual SMP Systems Out of Opterons
ScaleMP has announced a strategic collaboration with AMD in the name of its high-end vSMP Foundation virtualization. It’s the first time the eight-year-old ScaleMP has supported AMD. Its heart has previously belonged to Intel but customer demand reportedly pushed it to add AMD. So starting in a couple of weeks, it will scale Opteron-based servers beyond four processors into a single virtual symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) system with a maximum 512 multi-core processors and 64TB of memory. vSMP Foundation will support the current eight- or 12-core Opteron 6100 Series chips, AMD’s Magny Cours, as well as the upcoming Opteron code-named Interlagos based on AMD’s new x86 Bulldozer core. Interlagos, which should be out next week as the 6200 Series, is supposed to deliver eight, 12 and 16 cores.
SOA Software Appoints Former IBMer as VP Technology
SOA Software has appointed Corey Scobie to the position of Vice President Technology, the company announced on Tuesday.

An alphabetical 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!
Telcordia Enables Convergence of Telecom, IT and the Cloud
Communication service providers (CSPs) worldwide have a common need: the ability to create and deploy profitable, market-differentiating services in a matter of days or weeks rather than months. To meet that need, Telcordia [http://www.telcordia.com ], (Booth T05) a global leader in the development of Mobile, Broadband and Enterprise communications software and services, today announced Service Innovation for SDPs solution, which enables CSPs and their business partners to develop and deploy a new generation of voice, data and content services available to customers on multiple networks and devices and from the cloud.
The first generation of cloud computing was revolutionary in that it added business value to organizations by reducing development time, eliminating the need to procure infrastructure, providing massive scaling potential, establishing scale through multi-tenancy and by allowing IT people to focus on solving business problems versus technical ones. As cloud-based applications grew in prominence, they fought to achieve parity with legacy on-premise software solutions that were feature/functionality rich. These goals were achieved in short order, and thus the new generation of cloud solutions was born. Web 2.0 goes far beyond parity with legacy systems and leverages the power of information sharing, collaboration and the social grid to achieve value that would be impossible with a paradigm of pushing information out from a single location. The new age cloud applications are powerful becaus...
Assessing the cloud suitability of enterprise applications is top priority for many organizations. From storage, to identity management, to deployment – there are many areas to consider. Many organizations with existing data center investments may need to consider hybrid solutions. In the end, an organization’s migration strategy will often depend on the financial impact – ROI and TCO analysis becomes a key factor in the process. In his session at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Michael Collier, a Windows Azure MVP and National Architect for Neudesic, will investigate approaches for an enterprise’s migration to the cloud. He will work through an assessment of a common enterprise application, see a few common roadblocks and ways to mitigate those risks.
Samsung Countersues Apple in Australia
Samsung has countersued Apple in Australia charging the iPad 2 and iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 with trespassing on seven of its Australian wireless patents. The move comes ahead of an Australian court deciding whether Samsung will be formally barred from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country. Samsung agreed early in August to pull its Android-based Galaxy Tab 10.1 off the Australian market and cease advertising the thing pending a decision from the Australian Federal Court hearing an Apple “look and feel” patent infringement complaint. In its shiny new countersuit Samsung alleges that the 13 Apple patents the tablet’s snared on are invalid. Litigation-following blogger Florian Mueller figures Samsung’s case is weak. The patents Samsung cites in its lawsuit are reportedly standards-essential, which doesn’t make them very good offensive patents. In fact, if they’re standards-essential ...
Are dedicated servers a thing of the past? Or has dedicated hosting evolved alongside of Cloud hosting? In his general session at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Duke Skarda, CTO at SoftLayer, will explore the differences between dedicated servers and cloud computing as well as flexibility in the cloud environment. Duke Skarda is CTO at SoftLayer. He joined SoftLayer in November 2010 and, as the CTO, he holds responsibilities for implementing, designing and enhancing the proprietary SoftLayer Infrastructure Management System (IMS).Prior to joining SoftLayer, Mr. Skarda served as the Vice President of Information Technology and Software Development at The Planet. He served in this role from June 2009 to October 2010. Mr. Skarda earned a BS in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at El Paso.

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.

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%.
