Cloud Transformation of Business Models, Architectures, and Usage

This session will discuss how Cloud Computing is changing the face of business. The Cloud’s impact is felt in transforming business models, architectures, and usage. We will be discussing the disruption and changes in business models that Cloud is bringing to all forms of businesses, and the areas for the new Cloud Operating Environment that is required for the business models to be successful. Blakely will focus on various examples in the consumer, small-medium business, and large enterprise markets; and the architectural transformational efforts these firms employ to harness the power of cloud and deliver new performance in business.

The Anatomy of a Cloud: Public or Private?

Cloud storage comes in two flavors: public or private. Whether you choose to rent cloud storage (a public cloud) or buy cloud storage (a private cloud inside your firewall), there is a lot to consider. This session will review the choices a user faces when evaluating a private versus public cloud storage offering. It will describe data types and identify scenarios where cloud storage is a good choice, and where it is not. We will also cover usage patterns, security, performance and cost implications to educate delegates on the differences between public and private cloud storage.

Speaker Bio: Sajai Krishnan is CEO of ParaScale. He drives overall strategy and business execution for the company. Before ParaScale, he was General Manager of the StoreVault Division of NetApp, responsible for creating and developing the division's multi-national efforts within the mid-market segment. Prior to this appointment, Krishnan was the General Manager of NetApp's Storage Management Software business, overseeing the company's core management software offerings.

Krishnan has an MBA from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in addition to a master's degree in computer science from Rice University. His B.S. is in electronics engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras.

Assembling and Using Cloud Services with Service Component Architecture

As more data and code moves into the cloud, packaging and using those resources becomes more complex. Service Component Architecture (SCA), an open standard from OASIS, solves that problem in an elegant way. This session will use live demos to illustrate how to create an SCA service from code and data in the cloud. Once the services are assembled with SCA, we'll illustrate how changes to the services don't affect the applications that use them. The combination of cloud computing and SCA gives your applications maximum flexibility.

Speaker Bio: Doug Tidwell is a Senior Software Engineer at IBM. He was a speaker at the first XML conference in 1997, and has spoken on technical topics around the world.

He is the author of O'Reilly's book on XSLT, a co-author of O'Reilly's book on SOAP, and has published dozens of articles and tutorials on IBM's developerWorks site and elsewhere.

The Complementary Cloud

Cloud computing should not be wrongly perceived as an either-or option, compared to other models of on-premise data centers or outsourced IT services. Non-proprietary protocols and fully disclosed interfaces let service consumers assemble solutions from multiple service providers, using each in the areas where its distinctive technologies and high-leverage APIs offer maximum advantage in creating new value -- or releasing it from current IT assets. System integrators can draw on an expanding universe of cloud-based components. This session will examine the current state of play and recommend best practices for buyers, sellers and resellers of cloud APIs and resources.

Speaker Bio: Peter Coffee, Director of Platform Research at salesforce.com, works with enterprise and entrepreneurial developers and IT managers to build a community based on the company's Force.com Platform as a Service. He was formerly the Technology Editor at eWEEK, an international multimedia center of expertise in enterprise infrastructure technology and practice. He has more than 26 years' experience in advancing and evaluating information technologies and practices as a software developer, IT manager, consultant, educator, and internationally published author and industry analyst.

Enhanced Security Models for Machine Image Deployments

Security is consistently rated as a leading customer concern impeding the full scale adoption of Cloud Computing. At the same time, security is viewed as complicated and painful. This session will help to ease the pain by focusing on the key issues to be considered along with specific best practices for deployment. This session will share a number of security models for IaaS machine images based upon these best practices to illustrate how we can improve upon the security state of the art in Cloud Computing today.

Speaker Bio: Glenn Brunette is a Distinguished Engineer and Chief Security Architect at Sun. For over 15 years, he has designed and delivered security architectures and solutions supporting a wide array of global customers. Currently, Brunette has focused his efforts on improving security for highly dynamic and scalable cloud-based architectures.

Designing the Cloud

The cloud will be the next big thing in IT. Yet much of the hype about the cloud, focused on potential cost savings, has obscured the true benefits it can offer. In this talk, Russ Daniels will describe how the characteristics of the cloud will shift the focus of design from internal business processes to ecosystems of experience. Daniels will go on to describe how the cloud will fundamentally change the way people and businesses connect to information and the profound impact this will have on every aspect of our lives.

In the old world of IT, if you didn't have hardware capacity or the budget to buy more, your project was dead in the water. Budget constraints can leave some of the best, most creative and most ingenious innovations on the cutting room floor. It's a true dilemma for developers and innovators – why spend the time creating, when a project could be abandoned in a blink? That was the old world. In the new world of IT, developers rule. They have access to resources they can spin up instantly. A hybrid cloud ignites innovation and empowers developers to focus on what they need. A hybrid cloud blends the best of all worlds, public cloud, private cloud and dedicated servers to fit the needs of developers and offer the ideal environment for each app and workload without the constraints of a one-size-fits-all cloud.
