By James Urquhart | CNET
Last week, I attended the Cloud Connect Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, Calif., which is one of the biggest gatherings of cloud thought leaders and practitioners of the year.

By Chris DiMarco | TMC Net
Many applications and websites are highly dependent on databases in delivering the information that their users require.

Bernard Golden of CIO.com has written a detailed post on Cloud Connect and I will use this post to list out some of the takeaways from my point of view.

In the Cloud, Open Source Tools Offer Freedom from Old-school Practices
By Sam Dean | Ostatic
As The Register notes, Microsoft corporate strategy leader Rolf Harms spoke at the Cloud Connect conference in California this week, and said that "horseless carriage syndrome" typifies today's cloud computing business. He was referring to the fact that in the early days of the automobile, cars were designed very much like the carriages that had previously been powered by horses, with some of them even containing places to put a whip. "When you think about a new paradigm, it's very hard to do so without putting it in the context of the existing mindset," Harms noted. There are indeed signs that the cloud computing scene shows signs of horseless carriage syndrome, but that's exactly why open source cloud efforts show extreme promise.

Network Access: Breakingpoint Systems Provides Deep Network Monitoring and Stress Testing
By Chris DiMarco | TMC Net
It has been said that the next world war will not play out on the battlefield but rather in cyberspace-that targets financial transactions or infrastructure networks rather than military bases. While we may have only seen a glimpse of this future, the threat of network warfare and hack attacks have forced many top level enterprises, financial institutions and government agencies to reevaluate the networks they use on a daily basis.

Network Monitoring: Soasta Shows Off Music Inspired UI at Cloud Connect
By Chris DiMarco | TMC Net
While many in the IT space have some level of programming capacity, it isn't always enough to get at the deeper problems that can plague a website or application. The UI is perhaps the most important part in finding an easier solution for customers to test and address issues with their consumer facing websites. It was with this in mind that Cloud Monitoring provider Soasta developed its CloudTest platform, an innovative test suite that even a novice (or a journalist) can quickly and intuitively understand. The company was at this year's Cloud Connect expo to offer demos of the suite.

Cloud Cruiser Provides Transparent Cost Modeling For Hosted Setups
By Chris DiMarco | TMC Net
For all the provisioning, managing and load balancing offered via a subscription based cloud service these days, very few companies have focused on ways to optimize payment. Customers generally pay a flat fee entitling them to services but seldom make sure that they're getting every pennies worth of the service they pay for. Cloud cruiser was made publically available at the beginning of this month, offers software designed to sit atop an existing cloud setup and do exactly that.

Cloud Connect Is All About Automation
By Mike Fratto | Network Computing
Automation. That is the theme I continue to come back to while at Cloud Connect. I think organizations are going to be getting the most benefit from automation in the near term, and automation is one of the many steps on the road to private cloud computing. Automation, when done right, can save you and your staff loads of work and can ensure that deployments go more smoothly. I sat down with representatives from VMWare, Gale Technologies, HP, TransLattice and Cloud.com, and got the lowdown on automation and private cloud.

Standardized Cloud APIs Are Useless
By Mike Fratto | Network Computing
In a session on open source in the cloud at the Cloud Connect show in Santa Clara, Randy Bias of Cloudscaling dropped a bombshell of a statement, "API's don't matter". The context of that statement was what role do standards play in cloud computing. With a wry smirk, he went on to explain that mimicking Amazon's API's, for example, is useless if the providers don't have the ability to deliver all of the features and functions of Amazon's service, including the things you don't see like reliability, scaling, etc.. Of course API's matter but having a functional standardized cloud service management API doesn't and, I'd argue, never will.
