Upcoming in June: A Packed Few Days of Cloudy Information

Exciting start of the month of June – varying events related to cloud computing

Just 20 days more for a Cloud Workshop in Boston, but I am already looking forward to the days after this workshop!

Cloud Computing has been maturing rapidly and the next obvious step is for customers to leverage this technology. As a result, Dave Nielsen and myself have put together a series of workshops to help customers bring in their application for evaluation for cloud applicability. If you are interested in using cloud technology at your organization or for your customers, the workshop in Boston on June 2 will help you understand various characteristics of an application that has to be considered.

Cloud Expo always gives an opportunity for a subset of attendees to understand relevant topics on cloud computing. The 4-day Cloud Computing Bootcamp at Cloud Expo New York, from June 6 - 9, is broken up into 4 sections:

  • Two days of in-depth presentations
  • CloudCamp @ Cloud Expo New York to help attendees discuss their most pressing issues with peers
  • Vendors' strategy and portfolios
  • Demonstration of vendor solutions

I am excited to have Abiquo, CA, Cloud.com, Dell, Eucalyptus, Google, IBM, Oracle and Red Hat participate in the Bootcamp at Cloud Expo.  Watch out for updates!

In an interesting coincidence, Amazon is having its “Navigate the Cloud” summit on June 10 in NYC. For those interested in making full use of the week, I suggest you quickly register for this all day conference right after Cloud Expo!

An exciting start of June this year indeed!

CloudEXPO Stories
IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. Serverless and Kubernetes are great examples of continuous, rapid pace of change in enterprise IT. They also raise a number of critical issues and questions about employee training, development processes, and operational metrics. There's a real need for serious conversations about Serverless and Kubernetes among the people who are doing this work and managing it. So we are very pleased today to announce the ServerlessSUMMIT at CloudEXPO.
AI and machine learning disruption for Enterprises started happening in the areas such as IT operations management (ITOPs) and Cloud management and SaaS apps. In 2019 CIOs will see disruptive solutions for Cloud & Devops, AI/ML driven IT Ops and Cloud Ops. Customers want AI-driven multi-cloud operations for monitoring, detection, prevention of disruptions. Disruptions cause revenue loss, unhappy users, impacts brand reputation etc.
This month @nodexl announced that ServerlessSUMMIT & DevOpsSUMMIT own the world's top three most influential Kubernetes domains which are more influential than LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Medium, Infoworld and Microsoft combined. NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application. A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
