IBM Cloud Computing Session at Cloud Expo to Map Telecom Future

Upcoming session at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley

"We're making an important shift in the way we do business by providing clients powerful cloud computing services as well as cost savings," declared Chen Xiao Qin, vice director of marketing at Shanghai Telecom, as it was announced earlier in October that Shanghai Telecom was adopting IBM's new cloud services platform, a cloud service management solution called the IBM Cloud Service Provider Platform.



IBM describes the Cloud Service Provider Platform as "a comprehensive set of hardware, software and services to help providers rapidly deliver cloud computing on their own."

The company says that it includes the most advanced, carrier-grade technology with all the essential security and service management capabilities to ensure reliability essential to providers' own customers.

Shanghai Telecom is piloting IBM's new platform to extend computing and telecommunications into the enterprise market to capture the growing business opportunity to provide infrastructure to businesses and multinational corporations operating in China. But it is not alone. Orange, a major global telecommunications company, is using the IBM Cloud Service Provider Platform in a pilot project to create new infrastructure-as-a-service offerings for their customers.

Furthermore, companies such as Broadsoft, Corent Technology, deCarta, Jamcracker, Juniper Networks, NetApp, Openet, RightScale and Wavemaker are supporting the platform today.

IBM's work helping leading edge clients adopt cloud computing to transform the way they deliver services will be at the heart of a breakout session to be given November 1 on the opening day of the upcoming Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (1-4 November 2010 | Santa Clara Convention Center) by two Senior Managers from IBM Cloud Labs, Anil Somani and Jose Vargas.

In this session, attendees will get a view into clients in different industries as well as see cutting edge demonstrations. "As the adoption of cloud computing continues to grow, many companies are looking at how they can create services more quickly and efficiently," say Somani and Vargas.

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, as they represent yet another frontier for cyber-attacks. Complete visibility has never been more important-or more difficult. Powered by AI, Darktrace's Enterprise Immune System technology is the only solution to offer real-time visibility and insight into all parts of a network, regardless of its configuration. By learning a ‘pattern of life' for all networks, devices, and users, Darktrace can detect threats as they arise and autonomously respond in real time - all without impacting server performance.
Today, Kubernetes is the defacto standard if you want to run container workloads in a production environment. As we set out to build our next generation of products, and run them smoothly in the cloud, we needed to move to Kubernetes too! In the process of building tools like KubeXray and GoCenter we learned a whole bunch. Join this talk to learn how to get started with Kubernetes and how we got started at JFrog building our new tools. After the session you will know: How we got to Kubernetes (and why we chose it)
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
