Amazon's CTO to Keynote at Cloud Computing Expo

Join us in New York City to hear Dr Werner Vogels speak about the power of Infrastructure as a Service

Building the right infrastructure that can scale up or down at a moment's notice - the very essence of Cloud Computing - has become ever more crucial in today's challenging business landscape.

But it can be a complicated and expensive task, which is why we're pleased to have the Chief Technology Officer of Amazon.com, Dr. Werner Vogels, give the Opening Keynote at the 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, being held March 30-April 1, 2009.

Join us in New York City to hear first-hand about Infrastructure as a Service and the lessons Amazon.com learned from building one of the world's largest distributed systems.

Dr Vogels will explore the many challenges of building a reliable, flexible architecture that can manage unpredictable behaviors of today's internet business. The main focus of his keynote session will be state management - one of the dominating factors in the scalability, reliability, performance and cost-effectiveness of the overall system.

Dr Vogels will be speaking on Day One of the three-day event, which is being held at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.

In addition to Dr Vogels' opening keynote, there are two additional keynotes by industry thought leaders. Plus over 100 technical breakout sessions, general sessions, discussion panels, and more.

Amazon should have some interesting thoughts on cloud computing, but it is a mistake to focus too much on the plumbing. When there is a housing boom, do you hear about the new way foundations and plumbing are being put into the houses? Do people hear about how the power grid manages spike usage? Even as a network engineer, I have no interest in what the plumbing is. I just want to be able to see if I lost any business. I don't car about diagrams, use cases.

When it comes to the cloud, I just want to know if it rained or shined today. The point is, what is more important than the plumbing is what the users of the plumbing will see and will they like it and will it help them do something better or something they couldn't do before? To the same, there needs to be more SaaS, PaaS and the newer Open Platform as Service (OPaaS) companies, such as ModBox talked about when we talk about the cloud because the applications and services are the water for the cloud, the faucet, the light switch - click.
