Cloud Computing Expo 2009 West: Call for Papers Deadline July 15

Industry's leading Cloud-focused Enterprise IT event returns to Silicon Valley November 2-4, 2009

With an ever-increasing number of companies now buying computing, storage, and networking power as they need it from the cloud, it is hardly surprising that SYS-CON's industry-leading International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo series is going from strength to strength.

Now held three times a year, in New York, Prague, and Silicon Valley, the organizing principle of each International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo remains the same: our aim is to ensure, through an intense and carefully chosen program of technical and strategic breakout sessions, that attending delegates leave each Conference with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the Cloud, helping them to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the scalability of their Enterprise IT endeavors.

The Call for Papers for the 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, which will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, on November 2- 4, 2009, is closing shortly. The Conference Theme in Santa Clara is "Bringing the Economics of the Web to Enterprise IT Through Cloud Computing."

Our aim with each conference is to showcase breakout sessions from members of every layer of the Cloud ecosystem. The submission process is 100% online and the submissions URL is here. (Closing date July 15, 2009.)

First-rate submissions from Cloud providers and Cloud deployers are welcomed - on any and every aspect of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies:

  • SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS
  • Automation
  • Grid Software
  • Cloud Lock-in vs Cloud Interoperability
  • Virtual Private Clouds
  • Cloud-Delivered Security
  • Elastic Computing

CloudEXPO Stories
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
