Cloud Expo, November 5-8, Santa Clara, CA (http://cloudcomputingexpo.com/)
On November 8, president, CEO and co-founder of Aspera, Michelle Munson, will be speaking on ‘Transforming cloud infrastructure to support big data.’ Michelle’s presentation will discuss principles of cloud object stores, using examples of Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, and performance benchmarks of their native HTTP I/O. She’ll share best practices in orchestrating complex, large-scale big data workflows. She’ll also examine the requirements and challenges of IT infrastructure designs (on-premise, cloud or hybrid), including high-speed transport technologies and high-performance NAS.
On November 6, Aspera’s director of cloud platforms and services, Jay Migliaccio, will be participating in a panel on object storage for big data. He’ll join Tom Leyden, director of alliances and marketing at object storage innovator Amplidata, and speakers from Quantum, Intel, Panzura and StorageMojo to discuss this new storage paradigm designed for massive volumes of unstructured data, drawing on Aspera’s experience with Amazon S3 and expertise in the media and entertainment and life sciences industries.
Throughout the event Aspera will demonstrate its Aspera On Demand (http://cloud.asperasoft.com/aspera-on-demand/) solutions that unlock the cloud for big data applications. Cloud Expo is one of the world’s leading cloud event held in California, New York, Prague, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

On November 8, Migliaccio will be participating in a panel with representatives from IBM and Gaikai to discuss whether the cloud is more important to content creation or storage delivery, the role of internet service providers, and the risk profiles and ROI projection for organizations in this space. On November 9, he’ll join speakers from Extreme Reach and DataDirect Networks to discuss how the industry can address concerns around security, downtime, access, dependency and interoperability, and how it can further capitalize on the cloud’s positive attributes.
Aspera will demonstrate its Aspera On Demand cloud solutions throughout the event, which focuses on the latest advances in applying cloud-based solutions to all aspects of entertainment content production, storage and delivery.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).
