Introduction to the Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI)


Speaker:

Sam Johnston


Australian Online Solutions

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


The Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI), the first multi-vendor effort to create a cloud infrastructure services API (IaaS), will be made available as an implementable draft at OGF26 shortly. It will enable users to manage the entire lifecycle of virtual machines and similar workloads, and is comparable to the Amazon EC2 and Sun Cloud APIs. This presentation will serve as an introduction suitable for both implementors and consumers of the API.




 
A Marketplace for Cloud Computing Services


Speaker:

Diego Mariño

Co-Founder & CEO
Abiquo

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


This session will focuson how to monetize cloud platforms by allowing customers to choose and mesh different services and solutions to fit their needs. As long as the number of companies offering products or services increases, so the do the fears of customers. They feel overwhelmed by the offer and they are worried about taking the wrong decision. That's why open cloud platforms are needed. These platforms should be able to easily integrate solutions from different providers in a single interface. The session will show how to define a cloud marketplace, using as a use case the most successful recently: AppStore for iPhone. It will show deeply examples of how integrate these services: Monitoring, Backup, and Billing.




 
Application Portability in a Multi-Cloud World


Speaker:

Uri Budnik

Director of Business Development
RightScale

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


Organizations today must consider many factors when choosing among cloud offerings from vendors such as Amazon, Google and Salesforce.com, but being able to port applications and avoid getting "locked in" to one cloud platform is critical, and must be a primary concern for anyone planning to move mission critical applications to the cloud. Cloud lock-in can result in being committed to one public cloud infrastructure which may or may not suit application requirements over time, or it can even prevent a business from moving applications between a public cloud and its own private enterprise cloud.

Organizations, however, can take steps to maximize application portability and minimize cloud lock-in by applying the basic lock-in rule-of-thumb: the higher the cloud layer you operate in, the greater the lock-in. This session will discuss how each cloud offering varies widely when it comes to lock-in and how customers can assess the differences before committing to a specific cloud infrastructure. It will also discuss how lock-in can affect private enterprise clouds and "cloudbursting."





 
Assembling and Using Cloud Services with Service Component Architecture


Speaker:

Doug Tidwell

Sr. Software Engineer & Cloud Evangelist
IBM

Track: DAY ONE: Real-World Cloud Computing DAY TWO: Bootcamp


As more data and code moves into the cloud, packaging and using those resources becomes more complex. Service Component Architecture (SCA), an open standard from OASIS, solves that problem in an elegant way. This session will use live demos to illustrate how to create an SCA service from code and data in the cloud. Once the services are assembled with SCA, we'll illustrate how changes to the services don't affect the applications that use them. The combination of cloud computing and SCA gives your applications maximum flexibility.

Speaker:

Shahar Raz

Owner
Shahar Raz Consulting

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


Cloud computing is the new enabler for technology startups and ventures. Now that the "As A Service" offering, in different cloud models, is growing, technology evolution may become faster with lower barriers. The "entry price" of building and deploying IT systems can be reduced, thus enabling projects that used to be below the barrier to cross it. What does this do to new projects? How can one chose the right solution to use cloud as the new enabler? How does this help IT experts in times of major cost reductions?




 
Cloud Infrastructure and Application - CloudIA


Speaker:

Christoph Reich

Head of IT
Hochschule Furtwangen University

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


To harness the potentials of Cloud Computing to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME), the university establishes a new Cloud Computing project, called Cloud Infrastructure and Application (CloudIA). The CloudIA project is a market-oriented infrastructure that leverages different VM technologies and supports Service-Level Agreement (SLA) as PaaS and IaaS models. Several unique offerings of CloudIA are overbooking of physical hardware to run more VMs, Single-Sign-On using Shibboleth for external applications, such as Google Apps and Online Learning And Training (OLAT), and creating personalized VMs and service containers on-demand. Therefore, the CloudIA project offers better resource utilization and helps SME to increase productivity and reduce IT costs.

Creating an Agile Infrastructure with Virtualized I/O


Speaker:

Richard Croucher

Associate Partner
Citihub

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


As we host multiple Operating system guests onto a physical server infrastructure, the allocation of I/O capabilities to each guest becomes a constraint. I/O virtualization is a way of retaining flexibility whilst minimizing over configuring the physical I/O hardware. This session will review the basics of I/O virtualization and its interaction with OS virtualization, the differing standards including iSCSI, FibreChannel over Ethernet and InfiniBand and then compare some of the leading product solutions available on the marketplace.





 
Device Virtualization: Alternatives to SR-IOV


Speaker:

Derek McAuley

Chief Scientist
Netronome Systems

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


Moving device virtualization from the virtual machine (VM) to the system devices significantly improves VM performance, but also requires support from the devices. Currently, PCI and PCI Express (PCIe) devices can provide VMs with direct and secure I/O through the use of multiple functions per card, but at extra cost and inflexibility due to their silicon implementation. Alternative solutions are available that achieve the same results without the silicon dependency and at half the expense. This session will focus on new methods to achieve improvements with flexible, self-virtualizing PCIe devices, while also reducing costs.




 
Dynamic Deployment & Scalability for the Cloud


Speaker:

Jérôme Bernard

Director, EMEA Operations
Elastic Grid

Track: DAY ONE: Real-World Cloud Computing DAY TWO: Bootcamp


Cloud Computing providers allow a fantastic way to deploy scalable machine images easily and on demand. However, there is a finer grain of scalability that must be provided, allowing individual application assets to easily scale to meet the demands of a running system. Our session discusses the Elastic Grid, an approach that provides dynamic allocation, management and scalability of applications through the cloud. Discover how to easily deploy your Java applications (but not only!) on the Cloud (especially Amazon EC2) during this session with both an introduction to how Elastic Grid ease deployments, a real demo done live and some feedback from real uses cases.




 
Equinox Above the Cloud


Speaker:

Harald Kornmayer

Senior Researcher
NEC Laboratories Europe

Speaker:

Lluis Font

CEO
NTRglobal

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


In this session, CIOs will hear how global companies and SMBs alike can assess opportunities to adopt Green Support solutions in the Cloud and make these efforts highly visible to internal and external audiences. Green Support via Cloud Service Desks with live expert human support initiatives are a win-win-win proposal: they reduce the corporate carbon footprint, they increase service levels to customers, and they significantly cut operating costs. Armed with real-world examples, the speaker will show how our industry can help reshape Green discussions beyond the manufacturing process, and offer even more evidence of the critical and strategic role service and support plays within technology firms. Technology companies are under increasing pressure to go Green. With Wall Street, environmental groups, as well as customers, stockholders, and employees all pushing Green issues with corporate executives, the trend is hard to ignore. But so far, the bulk of the attention has been on manufacturing facilities, disregarding the Green impact of other areas of the company, including IT services and customer support.




 
How Does Virtualization Change Storage?


Speaker:

Stephen Foskett

Consulting Director
Nirvanix

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


The virtualization of servers destroys everything that storage folks thought they knew about I/O and throws in a new layer of abstraction to boot. Creating storage for virtualization is not the same as storage for most other apps, and storage virtual servers on a SAN or NAS is not the same as using internal disk. There is synergy between the two fields, though, if we look for it. This sesskion will walk through what virtualization changes about storage, the various storage options, pros and cons, and what the future looks like with FCoE, UCS, 10 GbE, and VMware vStorage APIs.

With today’s virtual data centers growing at an ever increasing pace and operating around the clock, the demand for innovative data storage management strategies that offer the highest capacity, performance and energy-efficiency, is at an all-time high. Cloud computing IT personnel are continually faced with three main challenges: 1) scaling system I/O performance; 2) reducing storage power consumption; and 3) fortifying secure storage ecosystems. This session will discuss how, in order to satisfy these critical requirements while ensuring fluid and secure data flow, virtual or cloud-based data centers must consider intelligent storage management and the benefits of integrating additional data conditioning capabilities into their systems.




 
IT Security Delivered from the Cloud


Speaker:

Raimund Genes


Trend Micro

Track: DAY ONE: Real-World Cloud Computing DAY TWO: Bootcamp


Increasing use of cloud computing has raised questions about how applications can be conducted as securely in the cloud as they are inside well-protected networks. Less notice is given to new opportunities to deliver security from the cloud to these same networks. Cyber criminals have made extensive use of cloud computing by herding thousands of unsuspecting "zombie" computers into huge remotely-controlled "botnets". This session will discuss how the Anti-Virus industry is responding with cloud-based "AV protection networks" of its own.




 
Load Balancing and Application Architecture in the Cloud


Speaker:

Owen Garrett

PM & Technologist
Zeus Technology

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


The cloud is a viable and successful means of hosting web applications, but not every application runs comfortably there. What lessons have been learned about how the architecture of applications must change so that they run successfully, reliably and efficiently on a cloud infrastructure? This session will look at the ways that application architects and developers can use load balancers and application delivery controllers to scale and manage transactions within a cloud-based application, with several real-world, measurable examples of success.




 
Making the Case for Desktop Virtualization


Speaker:

Richard Cassidy

Manager of Global Systems Engineering
Virtual Computer

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


While server virtualization appears to have gone mainstream, the case for desktop virtualization is often less clear. However, the potential opportunity is significant with the number of client devices far exceeding the number of servers. Primary reasons why organizations will embrace desktop virtualization include: improved desktop security, simplified management and reduced management costs. This session will present a new approach to desktop virtualization where desktops and applications are fully encapsulated in a virtual workspace environment and delivered dynamically from a private or a public computing cloud, to be run locally, independent of each other directly on bare-metal PC hardware. It will also explore how this approach delivers enhanced security and centralized management, while preserving the user experience and the flexibility of local PC capabilities.





 
Open Source & Cloud Computing: Is There a Free Software Alternative?


Speaker:

Pau Garcia-Mila

Founder
eyeOS

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


Usually when we hear about Cloud Computing we imagine a few big companies offering Cloud solutions. However, there is a privacy concern in sending personal and professional documents to some third party servers that grows as quick as the Cloud concept gets expanded over the media. Looking for possible solutions, one way to bring this concept of Cloud Computing back to some type of ownership is through smaller in-house clouds that are linked together instead of one bigger Cloud Computing provider where control of data is undefined. Just as Linux appeared to offer a worldwide accepted and developed alternative to the closed source Operating Systems, in the scenario presented in this session will centre on eyeOS, a Free Software project started in 2005 to create the Cloud Operating System, which can be easily hosted from almost any web server.




 
Opening Keynote: Building Great Companies on the Cloud


Speaker:

Roman Stanek

Founder & CEO
Good Data Corporation

Track: All Tracks


By now, most technologists are sold on the fundamentals of cloud computing. It's a realization of the last 20 years of architecture development. For architects and developers alike, the economics of the cloud mean that "we finally get to do what we've been drawing on whiteboards for years." Companies large and small are taking advantage of the cloud's utility model. What used to cost $20+ million can now be done for $500k on Amazon Web Services. This provides unprecedented opportunity - for new and established companies alike.

In this presentation Roman Stanek, a technology visionary who has spent the past fifteen years building world-class technology companies, will talk about what it means to be 'born on the cloud.' Specifically Roman will share with delegates his thoughts on how to use cloud computing as a technical design center; how to take advantage of the economics of cloud computing in building and operating cloud services; how to dramatically change customer adoption; and how to plan for the technical and operational scale that cloud computing makes possible.

Virtualized servers are now proliferating data centres faster than ever before providing cost, efficiency and environmental savings. However as this virtual infrastructure grows it brings new challenges such as the need to effectively manage the provisioning and lifecycle of VMs. The virtual infrastructure itself needs to be monitored and kept optimized at all times. These issues are likely to be more complex moving forward as organisations implement hypervisors from multiple vendors.This presentation will discuss how to make the most of your virtual infrastructure, manage it effectively and take advantage of the very High Availability and Disaster Recovery and cost points that cannot be achieved with physical servers.




 
Taking the Secure Migration Path to IT Virtualization


Speaker:

Petri Lillberg

EVP of R&D
SSH Communications Security

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


Global enterprises are mandating CIOs to reduce IT budgets, and server/desktop virtualization is a viable cost-reduction strategy. IT virtualization can offer dramatic improvements in IT efficiency and significant data center power savings. However, migrating to a virtualized data center can be complicated and deliver new security threats, particularly for heterogeneous IT environments. Before embarking on the path to virtualization, it is essential that enterprises take time to map a parallel data security migration path. This session will outline an IT Virtualization Security Plan to help IT managers effectively transition to a virtualized enterprise model while preserving high-level IT security.




 
The Benefits of Cloud Storage


Speaker:

Stephen Foskett

Consulting Director
Nirvanix

Track: DAY ONE: Real-World Cloud Computing DAY TWO: Bootcamp


The demand for storage has increased, placing significant stress on "in house" storage infrastructures and costly overcapacity build-outs Factoring in our current economic state and the pressures of power, space, capital expenditures, global performance, and availability issues, companies are faced with an exploding challenges and costs. Cloud storage platforms enable Enterprises to cut-cost and focus on more important aspects of business, but with many competitors in the marketplace it's hard for businesses to decide which option is best. This session will teach attendees about the uses of cloud storage within Enterprise levels of deployment and shed some light on the current solutions available today.

Speaker:

Nuno Duro

CTO
Evolvespace Solutions

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


Virtualization radically changed how organizations deploy hardware, operating systems and software. Although virtualization dramatically improved the way these tasks are done, an important problem still subsists: application configuration and assembly for VMs is still largely a manual task. The VIRTU system aims at configuring and managing application stacks on a virtualized environments. It allows setting up applications on demand, creating virtual machines fully configured with application stacks. VIRTU targets mainly the use cases of testing and developing applications in complex distributed environments. At test at the European Space Agency, VIRTU is being released under a dual-licensing model, known as Quid-Pro-Quo.




 
Virtualization and the Streamlining of Traditional Software Testing


Speaker:

Todd Kuczaj

Manager
Accenture

Track: Deploying Virtualization in the Enterprise


Virtualization is quickly spreading throughout every area of IT, causing many of us to rethink the way we work. The software testing space is no different. Virtualization has caused a shift in this area, allowing traditional software testing to occur faster, with fewer resources, for a lower cost while also improving the quality of code released into production. This presentation will discuss how traditional test teams have merged virtualization into their daily processes, as well as the wide range of issues that these teams have experienced and the critical lessons learned along the way.




 
Virtualization Keynote: Cloud Computing – The Next Generation of Virtualization


Speaker:

David Hanacek

VMware Certified Professional (VCP)
VMware

Track: All Tracks


Early industry conversations have focused on external, public cloud infrastructure, often focused on a new breed of applications. However, the reality is that businesses don’t have the luxury of throwing away today’s applications in favor of new architectures. The most pragmatic approach involves taking a first step, that of turning today’s datacenter into an internal cloud. This enables the bridging of internal resources with available external resources, helping businesses achieve the full flexibility and benefits of cloud computing. The result is in essence a virtual private cloud.




 
Your Cloud Computing Profile: Are You Strategic or Opportunistic?


Speaker:

Sam Morcos

VP Global Field Operations
Third Brigade

Track: Deploying Cloud Computing in the Enterprise


Two distinct reactions to cloud computing are emerging. CIOs, recognizing the savings, expanded capacity and failover flexibility, are taking a strategic approach. Departments are taking an opportunistic approach; eager for immediate computing resources and results, they jump at cloud computing oblivious to security implications. Taking critical applications and data off-premise to public cloud environments challenges security best-practices, jeopardizing compliance and breach security policies. This session addresses these challenges and helps CIOs and departments learn to: maintain policy control over applications and services in the cloud; prove the company is still secure and meeting SLAs; demonstrate compliance to auditors.
