4 Days in the Cloud

Published by

Cloud Connect 2011 is shaping up to be a superb event. As utility computing becomes a tool in the enterprise IT tool chest, we’re adjusting the curriculum. So this year, there’s a focus on performance, measuring and management of clouds — something enterprises demand. There’s more emphasis on cloud security. And there’s a detailed look at how to connect on-premise and on-demand computing resources.

But at the same time that the industry is becoming more mature, there are still many IT professionals who need a foundational understanding of what it means to use clouds. To accommodate this, we’ve also put together a “cloud crash course” pre-conference workshop that tackles many of the fundamental changes that clouds bring about — from throw-away servers, to eventually consistent data, to sharding, to the end of perimeter security.

As with last year, we’ll start with a day of in-depth workshops, and then we’ll have three days of conference sessions and fast-paced, thought-provoking keynotes. Last year, we really pushed the envelope on the main stage, and we’re working hard to bring the same short, packed format this year.
