1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo: Observations

The event spanned three days and was very well attended

The ParaScale Blog

Last week the masses converged on San Jose for the SYS-CON convention that covered SOA, Virtualization and Cloud Computing. The event spanned three days and was very well attended. I was surprised at how crowded the sessions were given the state of the economy these days.

That is until I headed over to the SOA side of the conference. Granted the rooms were bigger but the SOA audiences were sparse. People love a trend and Cloud Computing is no exception.

I managed to catch a couple of interesting presentations on the cloud computing side that were standing room only. The Rightscale CTO gave a good presentation and I finally understand what they do (think a dashboard and automation for cloud computing installations). There were lots of good hallway conversations and the audiences were eager to ask questions and learn more about Clouds. Consistently I heard the term, private and enterprise cloud and more people are starting to recognize the value of internal service offerings leveraging cloud technology.

The ParaScale session was surprisingly well attended. I say surprisingly as we had the Friday 5:20 PM spot. Regardless we filled the room and the questions were non-stop. The presentation was well received as we managed to stay vendor neutral (unlike many) while providing a great deal of educational content. I’m working on getting a video copy of the presentation from SYS-CON for our website which I will post in the library. If you made the show drop us a comment on your experience.

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.
