Sun is joining Amazon and IBM in the top industry keynote lineup for SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York, March 30-April 1, co-located with the 5th International Virtualization Conference & Expo. Sun's Sr. VP of Cloud Computing, David Douglas, will be joining Amazon's CTO Dr Werner Vogels and IBM's Cloud Computing CTO Kristof Kloeckner. Between them these three industry thought leaders represent extremely well the steadily growing importance of Cloud Computing in the world of Enterprise IT.
Douglas's keynote will be entitled "A World of Many Clouds."
Sun is committed to making cloud computing a pervasive reality. Sun's open source philosophy and Java principles form the core of a strategy to provide interoperability for large-scale computing resources through open and transparent cloud platforms that minimize lock-in.
Sun envisions a world of many clouds, delivered by different service providers, to meet a variety of business needs:
- Public: A scalable, multi-tenant environment you can leverage with minimal upfront resources to deploy applications quickly
- Private: A data center you that you own/operate, built to cloud standards, to service both internal and external customers, control costs, and smooth demand
- Hybrid: You own some, retaining control over key parts of your infrastructure. And you use some, leveraging public resources to test applications, add additional capacity when needed, and offload non-critical resources.
In his keynote session, Douglas will investigate how enterprise IT operations can take advantage of this emerging world of many clouds to achieve the cost and flexibility advantages that cloud computing allows while maintaining control of their IT infrastructure.
Cloud computing, Sun reminds the industry on its corporate web site devoted to the subject, "is about managing petascale data" - and its server and storage systems are all designed "to radically improve the data-intensive computing emerging in the cloud." All without having to invest in new infrastructure, train new personnel, or license new software.
Douglas, who also serves as Sun's Chief Sustainability Officer, will be speaking on April 1, 2009 at 8:30AM. Cloud Computing Conference & Expo 2009 East is a three-day event, and is being held at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz recently expressed his vision for Java and stressed the new role that Cloud Computing is beginning to play in the company's technology roadmap. "At Sun, we're planning on maintaining Java's ubiquity as the number one runtime environment, backed by the world's most price performant datacenter infrastructure, all powered by Sun's cloud," he wrote.
SYS-CON's 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo took place last November in San Jose, CA, with more than 1,200 delegates. See conference photo album here.
In addition to Sun's keynote, and the keynotes by Amazon and IBM, the Conference offers over 100 technical breakout sessions, general sessions, SYS-CON.TV "Power Panels," and more. Below is a selection of the technical- and strategy-focused sessions we have on offer March 30-April 1.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
