Cloud Expo Speaker Profile: Jason Lieblich - Exoprise Systems

Jason Lieblich - Founder & CEO at Exoprise Systems

With Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (9th Cloud Expo) starting today Monday November 7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, let's introduce you in greater detail to the distinguished individuals in our incredible Speaker Faculty for the technical program at the conference...

We have technical and strategy sessions for you every day from Nov 7 through Nov 10 dealing with every nook and cranny of Cloud Computing, but what of those who are presenting? Who are they, where do they work, what else have they written and/or said about the Cloud that is transforming the world of Enterprise IT?

RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"

Almost every company that’s doing something in the cloud has an online calculator to help prospects determine the benefit of the cloud. These widgets provide some decent info, but not nearly enough to help an enterprise determine whether it truly makes sense to move a mission critical app like email to the cloud.

I started Exoprise to give IT professionals real data about how their applications are being used, what application specific features and functions their users prefer, if their needs can be met by a cloud-based alternative — and which one is the best fit. We cover TCO (deeply) too, but combine it with an assessment of many less obvious, but arguably more important, user and application attributes.

CloudReady Insight is currently focused on analyzing Microsoft Exchange and helping businesses choose their next collaboration platform in the cloud. We analyze the hard stuff (storage, compute, assets, power and electric, license costs, etc.) and the soft stuff — the end-user usage and readiness for alternative platforms. Businesses spend a lot of money on their messaging systems; care and feeding them, upgrading them. Some estimates are that the cost per person per year is more than $350. But the decision to abandon on-premise systems can’t just be about cost. It has to take into account the way the organization currently works, how the systems are used and, ultimately, what is the right property to migrate to for the business and the end-users."

CloudEXPO Stories
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
