CIOs Don't Really Care About the Cloud

The Heat Map of Innovation

SYS-CON Events announced today that more than 40 Cloud technology providers, as well as Virtualization and SOA companies will exhibit at the upcoming 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (www.CloudComputingExpo.com), November 19-21, in San Jose, California. The conference will be colocated with SYS-CON's 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo (www.VirtualizationConference.com)

1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will take place on November 19-21, 2008, at the Fairmont Hotel, downtown San Jose, CA

CIOs don't really care about the cloud. They care about budgets, security and compliance. All the buzzwords in the world won't help innovative technology unless it maps directly onto CIO pain points. This session investigates what those pain points are, and where emerging products and vendors are successfully solving real-world problems for end users. A picture of the cloud emerges, not as an abstraction viewed from the outside, but as a set of closely related changes taking place within the world's IT infrastructure.

Speaker Bio:
Rachel Chalmers is the Research Director for Infrastructure Management at The 451 Group. She has led the infrastructure software practice since its debut in April 2000. She pioneered coverage on SOA, distributed application management, utility computing and open source software. Today she focuses on datacenter automation and server, desktop and application virtualization. Chalmers was also the lead author of many 451 Special Reports, including 'V' for Virtualization: Transforming the datacenter, driving M&A' (Dec 2006); 'Virtualization II: Desktops and applications are next' (Jun 2007); and Virtualization III: Managing the virtual revolution (Nov 2007).

Free Cloud Computing Bootcamp on Nov 20, 2008, in San Jose, CA
1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will offer a free "Cloud Computing Bootcamp" (http://cloudbootcamp.sys-con.com) on the second day of the conference, Thursday, November 20, 2008. Cloud computing is an opportunity for business to implement low cost, low power and high efficiency systems to deliver scalable infrastructure. But moving to a cloud infrastructure is not necessarily as nice and clean as the providers would want us to think. With cloud infrastructures problems don't magically go away, they just shift: you don't have scalability or storage problems any more, but you need constantly monitor the cloud and your application in it. In this compelling, intensive, one-day, hands-on training program, you will learn what it takes to take advantage of the Cloud - and whether it is right for you in the first place.

Top-Class Speaker Lineup Will Explore the Technical & Business Value of Delivering IT Resources as Services
Speakers from all over the world are being hand-picked for their ability to explore the economics and strategies that utility/cloud computing provides. Topics include all aspects of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies, including:

SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS
Automation
Grid Software
Elastic Computing
Cloud Databases
Scalability
Fabric Computing
Green IT
High-Performance Computing
Service Management
Web-scale Computing
Cloud Standards
Cloud Reliability & Security
Private Cloud Computing
Internal Clouds

The rich mix of technical and strategic sessions is expressly designed to help IT professionals make informed choices, since utility/cloud computing affects every aspect of how IT deploys and operates software, and will likely affect many aspects of how they develop/purchase it.

CloudEXPO Stories
The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
