Cloud Computing Expo: Show Reports - A Round-Up

What's being said around the blogosphere about SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in NYC

"This week we exhibited at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo in NYC. I was impressed with the turnout and as usual the SYS-CON team put on a great show. More and more we are seeing the larger enterprise’s embrace cloud storage and this show was no exception. Enterprise attendees ranged from finance to pharma backgrounds all looking to better understand this new wave of technology and how it can be used to streamline operations and reduce costs."

"I spent two days at the Cloud Computing Expo in NYC this past week and want to share my thoughts on the state of the cloud. ... David Linthicum is one of the few people on the cloud computing speaking circuit who is making sense. ...Dave’s advice is the best that I have come across out there.  It is all about architecture and the cloud is just another tool in the toolbox."

"SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Boot Camp - I have to say, for a conference, this was the best session I have ever attended. Completely vendor neutral, and full of deep technical details, without the spin, of what the Cloud really is."

"Spoke at 7PM this evening, at the end of a long day of presentations at the Cloud Computing Expo. I was a little afraid of a 7PM speaking slot because I thought people would rather be at the bar rather than listen to me talk. Boy, was I wrong. Apparently, people were standing in the hallway. Had I noticed, I certainly would have rearranged furniture to get more people in - even if it meant more people sitting on the floor!"

"Customers need to be skeptical, particularly when they are considering sending critical data and applications to cloud providers, says David Snead, an attorney who spoke about legal issues related to virtualization and cloud computing at Sys-Con's Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York City last week. Companies such as Amazon do have downtime, and service-level agreements may not guarantee severe penalties, he said."

"In a tersely worded statement [released at Cloud Computing Expo] that reminds us of something coming out of a Cold War summit on a battleship, IBM and Microsoft (along with Intel and Cisco) agreed in principle to the idea that "interoperability" - IBM's desire to see different clouds work together - is as a good thing. They also said that cloud computing should have its own trade association or marketing group to work towards those ends, and that everyone should be invited."

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
