SYS-CON's 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, held on
November 2 - 4, 2009, in Santa Clara, attracted more than 40 sponsors with
over 2,000 delegates, a record attendance. The three content-packed days
emphasized value with a rich array of sessions led by exceptional speakers
about the business and technical value of cloud computing.
Enjoy here our photo album of the show.
Now held three times a year -- in New York, Prague, and Santa Clara -- the
Cloud Computing Conference & Expo series is the fastest-growing Enterprise IT
event in the past 10 years, devoted to every aspect of delivering massively
scalable enterprise IT as a service. The event in Santa Clara, CA, was
co-located with our 7th International Virtualization Conference & Expo.

Cloudwatt and UShareSoft have announced a partnership to deliver a suite of
services dedicated to helping enterprise customers, value-added integrators
and ISVs to migrate, build, deploy and manage workloads on Cloudwatt's public
cloud or hybrid environments requested by clients.
"Today, cloud providers need to differentiate themselves against their
competitors," said Alban Richard, CEO of UShareSoft, "the ability to make
software delivery to cloud as easy and self-service as the underlying VM
compute is a must-have."
Cloudwatt selected UShareSoft for software onboarding tools in line with

It was once said back in the early ‘90s that “Client/server computing is
a little like teenage sex – everyone talks about it, few actually do it,
and even fewer do it right. Nevertheless, many people believe client/server
computing is the next major step in the evolution of corporate information
Can the same be said about cloud computing, today?
It is evident that cloud computing is the next major step in computing, in
general. But is it the next major step in the evolution of corporate
information systems? Everyone is certainly talking about it; but who is
actually doing it?
According to Pew Research, anyone with a Gmail or YouTube account is
participating in the cloud computing revolution. Perhaps I need to change
my perspective about cloud computing in order to agree with them. The Pew
report focuses on end-user adoption of cloud-based services, o... (more)
Ever get one of those random phone calls in the midst of your work day that
makes you think, huh -- interesting idea? Well earlier today I had one from a
guy looking to learn more about cloud computing platforms. Although it ended
up he wasn't specifically looking for an elastic computing platform, he did
ask a few very thought provoking questions.
What he asked was if there is a simple way to compare the performance,
security and quality of various cloud computing providers? He went on to say
that when comparing traditional hardware vendors it was easy for him to
understand the standardized specifications (GHZ, GB, etc) as well as
determine quality based on brand recognition, but in the cloud world there
was no easy way for him to compare "apples to apples". In his words, "there
is Amazon and then there is everyone else". Although overly simplified, he
was kind of ... (more)

When application performance is not what the cloud customer expected, who’s
at fault? The cloud provider’s infrastructure? The application owner’s
code? The platform vendor’s deployment tools? The external services the
application uses? The database tier?
The answers to these questions will be provided at SYS-CON's 4th
International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo by NewRelic Founder & CEO
Lewis Cirne, who will be giving a breakout session at the popular event,
which is being held November 2-4 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in
Santa Clara, CA.
The session is called "To Stop the Cloud Blame Storm, You Must See Inside the
Running Cloud Application."
"Everyone concerned about application performance will need to monitor,
troubleshoot and optimize cloud-based web applications," notes Cirne. "Only
by seeing inside the production application as it is running can de... (more)
XAJAX at Cloud Expo
An interesting thing happens when you combine toolkits like XAJAX and SAJAX
and the ability to perform content-based routing: you can actually achieve
function-level load balancing in both cloud-based and traditional
As you might have discovered from previous posts mentioning it, I still do
web application development to support hobby interests in my (very little)
spare time. I’m currently in love with the XAJAX library, which has made
development of what is supposed to be a very interactive application nearly
I’m also very much enamored of load balancing/application delivery and
cloud computing, specifically how to get the most out of the latter using the
former. XAJAX is a perfect example of how the choice of development
environment can impact – positively – the ability of an intelligent
intermediary to drill-down... (more)
Anyone who’s been around cryptography for a while understands that secure
key management is a critical foundation for any security strategy involving
encryption. Back in the day it was SSL, and an entire industry of solutions
grew up specifically aimed at protecting the key to the kingdom – the
master key. Tamper-resistant hardware devices are still required for some US
Federal security standards under the FIPS banner, with specific security
protections at the network and software levels providing additional assurance
that the ever important key remains safe.
In many cases it’s advised that the master key is not even kept on the same
premises as the systems that use it. It must be locked up, safely, offsite;
transported via a secure briefcase, handcuffed to a security officer and
guarded by dire wolves. With very, very big teeth.
No, I am not exaggerating. At least ... (more)
June 6, 2012 was the iPv6 day – we no longer have to worry about running

Chrome overtakes IE on weekends: Over the past three weeks, Google Chrome has
beaten out Internet Explorer as the No. 1 browser in the world — but only
on Sundays. Monday through Saturday, IE has remained the browser with the
highest worldwide market share, although its lead is slipping.
