Cloud Computing isn’t just another buzzword: this session will look at what the industry is up to, Amazon is up to, and especially how people are innovating in the cloud. Buzzwords aside, virtualized (cloud) computing is a disruptive game changer at both technical and business levels, as you'll learn. Amazon Senior Evangelist Jeff Barr will review Amazon's multi-year effort to provide software developers and entrepreneurs with the technical and business innovations which allow them to build cost-effective, highly-scalable web applications.

The future model for providing IT infrastructure and services in large organizations is what many today are calling "Cloud Computing" - a concept popularized by Amazon through its web services efforts. 

Industry analysts for example reckon that by 2011 the volume of Cloud Computing market opportunity will amount to $160BN, including $95N in business and productivity apps (e-mail, office, CRM, etc.) and $65BN in online advertising.

Cloud Computing, through which massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided as a service using Internet technologies, has many interpreters just now - and many interpretations. One thing is certain: it is the most dynamic new metaphor to hit enterprise computing since the creation of the "Web" by Tim Berners-Lee.

Forrester Research analyst James Staten calls cloud computing "classic disruptive innovation where the mainstream dismisses the product and small companies have time to create a real differentiated value." But there are so many offerings just now that what infrastructure architects are looking for above all is a set of organizing principles they can use to guide them in choosing between them all.

Accordingly SYS-CON Media & Events is continuing its market-leading practice of launching full-blown conferences ahead of anyone else by launching the 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, to be held November 19-21, 2008 in San Jose, California.

Speaker Bio: Jeff Barr is an evangelist at Amazon on its Web Services team, where his job is to tell developers all about the Amazon Web Services with the goal of having them build useful, cool, and interesting applications.

According to the IDC InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix, “Surviving and Thriving in a Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.
