Happy Thanksgiving Weekend To All Our Cloud Expo Friends!

See you on the other side...when the countdown begins to New York's mega-event (June 11-14)

As we head into Thanksgiving Weekend, we bring a brief round-up of some of the many follow-up comments we have been receiving since November's 9th Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, CA. Thanks for your thanks, and see you on the other side...when the countdown steadily begins to New York's mega-event: 10th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo New York (June 11-14).

CloudExpo Thanks for a great conference.  we were delighted with the quality of interactions and our visibility.


Shannon Cruey - Senior Solutions Architect at Cloud Sidekick

Cloud Expo last week was simply an awesome experience for Cato and the whole Cloud Sidekick team. We gave away a thousand wonderfully obnoxious bright orange “Be The Hero” t-shirts, and left many people disappointed when we ran out. We hope you’ll proudly wear yours! CloudExpo was basically the coming out party for Cloud Sidekick and Cato, and we had fantastic results. The amount of energy and excitement was palpable, and we came away with tons of ideas and suggestions, some of which we will be implementing immediately.

last week in Santa Clara was full of useful information and great speakers.



Natalie Burch, Marketing Coordinator, SoftLayer Systems

All in all, Cloud Expo Silicon Valley was an exemplary tradeshow for SoftLayer … Three fantastic speakers in two days driving traffic to our booth where we could share how SoftLayer has built our cloud and how our approach is part of a bigger effort to drive innovation in the world of hosting.

It was the Best  Expo ever 


Steve Levine, TheCloudist.com

We witnessed a proliferation of several mature cloud management offerings from some well-known and pedigreed providers. What each have in common is an ‘A-List’ team of founding cloud leaders and well defined services designed to corner a juicy segment of the market.


Wayne Greene - Business & Product Architect of Cisco's Intelligent Automation Strategy, Cloud, DC & App Automation

Cloud Expo was indeed a very interesting juxtaposition of people espousing the value of cloud and how their stuff is really cloudy. You have a group of presenters and expo floor booths talking about their open API and how that is the future of cloud. Then you have the other camp that tells us how their special mix of functions is so much better than that. All of this is a very interesting dialog.

For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of recent developments, including containers and Docker, distributed resource management, and DevOps tool chains and processes. The resulting infrastructure and management framework must be optimized for distributed and scalable applications, take advantage of innovation stemming from a wide variety of open source projects, span hybrid environments, and be adaptable to equally fundamental changes happen...

"The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices.
