Let's Go Beyond the Theories of Cloud Computing

Two Cloud Expo Speakers Promise to do Just That

RightScale Session at Cloud Expo

I and at least a hundred other people have written about how to define Cloud Computing and the importance in doing so accurately. But something with as glib a name as "Cloud Computing" is going to be prone to misinterpretation, term elision, and lot of stuff that's just plain wrong.

The 5,000 or so attendees who are expected to show up in New York in April for Cloud Expo are at the top of the pyramid in understanding what Cloud Computing is, and how it can be specifically integrated into what they do for a living. Nevertheless, even at this level there is plenty of confusion, no doubt promulgated by the sheer amount of theories that people still offer in these early days of Cloud Computing

A couple of conference speakers aim to clear up any misunderstandings by focusing on case studies to demonstrate that of which they speak. Lew Mooman, President of Cloud and Chief Strategy Officer for Rackspace, and Michael Crandell, CEO and Co-founder of RightScale, have developed a session prospectus that states:

"As enthusiasm for cloud computing has exploded – so has confusion over the definitions, use cases and practical realities of deploying applications in the cloud today. While the promise of lower IT costs, greater scalability and more flexible computing are hard to ignore, many CTOs and IT managers are finding it increasingly difficult to understand how to take advantage of cloud computing, or even how to get started."

"Citing real-world case studies, we will discuss the pragmatics of cloud computing today - what types of applications are best for the cloud (and which aren’t), how to get started, and what steps are already being taken to ensure the cloud's security and stability."
