I Was at the Taping Of Cloud Computing Expo Power Panel in Times Square

I arrived in New York City this morning to attend the Cloud Computing Expo for the next three days. SYS-CON folks invited me on Sunday for the taping of the Cloud Computing Expo Power Panel which was taped at the Reuters Studios in Times Square. The live taping of the show was a blast. I met the panelists at the studio as well while watching the SYS-CON.TV show in the green room. The green room is actually gray and brown. The Cloud Computing Power Panel will be broadcast at the Cloud Computing Expo, March 31 - April 1, 2009, Roosevelt Hotel, in New York City.

Insulating Innovators from Infrastructure with Cloud Computing

The SMS message was desperate. AJ sent the plea “If I have to see one more picture of a cloud in a PPT I might lose it…” After two days of presentations at the Cloud Computing Conference and Expo, where companies tried to bring the audience up to an Intro to Clouds 101 level, some attendees were grasping for new ideas, new information, new reasons why companies should release their IT models currently based on strict FUD-Factor (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) compliance, to the new generation of cloud computing. The “same slides, different day” approach was starting leave some attendees a bit glazed, until Shelton Shugar, SVP of Cloud Computing at Yahoo! kicked off the morning with his keynote speech “Accelerating Innovation with Cloud Computing.” Shugar woke the audience up with an overview of how Yahoo! Is “walking the talk” with cloud computing deployments in t... (more)

Cloud Computing, Clouds publics, Clouds privés , Retour de la conférence Sys-Con à Santa Clara (Californie)

(Remarque : texte plus long qu’à l’habitude) Après la conférence de SIIA, dont j’ai parlé récemment, j’étais aussi invité comme conférencier à la conférence organisée par Sys-Con sur le Cloud Computing. C’était la quatrième conférence que Sys-Con organisait sur ce sujet en 15 mois, preuve s’il en est de la popularité croissance du Cloud Computing ; la dernière avait eu lieu à Prague, en mai 2009, et j’y avais aussi participé. La conférence : participants et sponsors Dix fois plus de personnes, en majorité des utilisateurs ; le contraste était saisissant avec SIIA, très orienté offre. Lors de la conférence d’ouverture, il y avait des dizaines de personnes assises par terre ou debout au fond de la salle... Les participants pouvaient construire leur programme à la carte parmi 120 exposés au total, sachant qu’il y avait souvent 7 ou 8 présentations en parallèle. Signe for... (more)

CA Buys 3Tera

3Tera Session at Cloud Expo Determined to be a cloud player, CA said Wednesday morning that it's buying privately held 3Tera whose browser-based AppLogic software is used to rapidly deploy and scale enterprise-class applications on public and private clouds and to build cloud services. Terms were not disclosed. The 3Tera buy follows CA's recent acquisitions of Cassatt, NetQoS and Oblicore, which CA sees as expanding its portfolio of widgetry to manage cloud computing as part of an integrated IT management program. Note that Cassatt founder Bill Coleman, also a founder of BEA, joined 3Tera's advisory board last year after Cassatt came to grief. One can now imagine his advice. CA says it plans to integrate 3Tera's widgetry with its existing virtual and physical infrastructure management functionality such as its Spectrum Automation Manager and CA Service Assurance l...

3Tera and AppLogic SWAG Move to the Cloud Computing Retro Collection

3Tera Session at Cloud Expo CA and 3Tera have announced CA's acquisition of the innovative cloud computing Infrastructure as a Service vendor. This is a great thing for Computer Associates, and perhaps a bit sad for the cloud community in general. Why? It is hard to fit the energy and enthusiasm felt when walking into 3Tera's Aliso Veijo office into words. A tight group of committed entrepreneurs and innovators, with a bit of cockiness due to the unique stature they held in the cloud computing community. Not that Computer Associates is a bad company. In fact, they have always been one of the best kept secrets in business and enterprise software. Rock solid systems, professional sales and engineering – just not as well known to the broader community as other large enterprise systems vendors. AppLogic brought the cloud community many firsts. The first to integrate IPv6... (more)

Developing Disaster Recovery Models with Cloud Computing

Disaster Recovery Session at Cloud Expo How does a small or medium business ensure it can meet the basic needs for disaster recovery and business continuity?
