Developing an optimized cloud strategy requires taking a close look at the entire stack. That’s why Cloud Connect will present five immersive workshops, Sept 29-30, at this year’s Interop New York with topics that tackle each layer – from cloud infrastructure, to storage, to applications and the management thereof – attendees will get the chance to walk  from away the event with a holistic approach to cloud. Below is a preview of each workshop:

Designing Infrastructure for Private Clouds

Private cloud deployments are often just a glorified facade for server virtualization, missing the flexibility, elasticity and self-service aspects of cloud services. The missteps leading to this sad state usually start in the design phase, making it even more important to focus on the design of your private cloud infrastructure. Read More >>

Making Cloud Storage Work for Your Organization

The ready availability and relatively low price of cloud storage means IT departments can improve the services they provide while also keeping costs in line. Because cloud storage is equally accessible from anywhere, it’s a compelling option for providing access to data from multiple locations. Cloud storage is also attractive for backup data. Even better, in a disaster IT can recover that data from a provider for rapid recovery. Add in how object storage services like Amazon’s Glacier offer low-cost, long-term archiving and the cloud starts to look like a nice place to keep some of your data. The rub, of course, is…Read More >>

Speaker: Howard Marks, Contributing Editor, Network Computing

OpenStack Forum

Cloud computing with OpenStack is a powerful way of providing and consuming IaaS to achieve the scale and agility required by IT departments today. In the most recent release, Havana included nearly 400 application-driven enterprise features. Read More >>

Cloud Applications: The Next Generation

Cloud computing solved the problem of infrastructure — computing resources are now cheap, scalable, and easy to access — however, designing and operating applications for cloud environments continues to be a challenge for IT. Read More >>

Speaker: Bernard Golden, Author, Amazon Web Services for Dummies & Vice President Strategy, ActiveState Software

Managing Applications in a Hybrid Cloud World

Federated cloud infrastructures are the future of application deployments. This is good news for IT because hybrid systems provide high availability, promote mobility, and can simplify disaster recovery and continuity of operations. However, federated architectures also create thorny orchestration and management challenges, as data and applications are dispersed across private and (eventually several) public clouds.

Cloud Connect Summit had an impressive launch at Interop Las Vegas this past spring, and is now heading to Interop New York, the leading independent technology conference and expo series for the IT community, from Oct 1- 2.

As cloud continues to reshape business computing, Cloud Connect will bring its cloud-as-business-enabler programming to Interop New York for the first time in 2014. The two-day Cloud Connect Summit will give attendees an intensive immersion in how to leverage the cloud to drive innovation and growth for their business. In addition to the Summit, Cloud Connect will produce five cloud workshops to run Sept 29-30, alongside the Interop workshop program. The Interop Expo will also host a Cloud Connect Zone, Oct 1 -2, showcasing cloud companies’ technology solutions. Adding Cloud Connect programming to Interop New York further demonstrates how cloud technology has become a critical tool in the IT wheelhouse.

The New York program features three *new* workshops as well several new Summit keynotes and sessions.  Find more information about the Cloud Connect workshops here, and stay tuned for the Summit agenda, to be released late June.

See you in the Big Apple!

WHAT ATTENDEES SAID ABOUT CLOUD CONNECT SUMMIT LAS VEGAS:

Impressed with the quality of the speakers and the interesting and engaging topics.

Margaret Dawson is one of the best speakers I’ve heard in a long time.

Another session packed with information. Fantastic speakers.

A massive amount of information to take in, but I plan to take what I learned and really do some research, especially around hybrid cloud and ITaaS since that is the next direction from my company. Learning the difference in vendors and the hype versus fact will help as well as one speaker put it, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Excellent detailed session about AWS components and structure. Bernard did an amazing job presenting the material and answering questions.
