A blog entry from Cloud Infrastructure Track Chair Bernard Golden.
Many people fail to realize how profoundly cloud computing is transforming the world of computing infrastructure. From the vast farms of servers operating in data centers that run up to 1 million square feet, to the highly automated operational environments that require only a handful of employees to manage over one hundred thousand servers, cloud computing represents a revolution — a disruptive innovation, if you will — to computing infrastructure business-as-usual.
This September, the Infrastructure track at Cloud Connect will provide attendees with real-world examples and deep insights about the new world of cloud computing infrastructure. If you’re at all interested in understanding how the world of IT infrastructure is changing forever, you owe it to yourself to attend the following sessions:
The Future of Data Centers: Hear how Ron Vokoun and Mark Thiele build and operate data centers that run up to 1 million square feet.
Cloud Infrastructure Build Out and Management: Hear two veterans of real-world cloud computing infrastructure discuss best practices — and worst nightmares — of operating cloud computing hardware and software infrastructures
Next-Generation Storage and File Systems: Hear the CEO of SolidFire discuss how SSDs can transform the speed and reliability of cloud storage
Automating Cloud Applications Using Open Source: Colleagues from BrightTag will discuss how they’ve knitted together a number of open source applications and components to help them manage complex cloud environments.
Many conferences offer vague generalities and empty marketing phrases to attendees. The Infrastructure track at Cloud Connect will provide knowledge and insight that you can use to increase your success with cloud computing and help you understand how to make better decisions in your work environment. Join us by registering today with priority code RFPQCH08 to save $400 on the onsite price of conference passes.
I welcome your attendance and participation in a conversation about what the the future of IT infrastructure looks like.
