Hear from IT leaders, industry experts and developers at the defining event that brings together the entire cloud computing community.
Christopher Brown joins Opscode from Microsoft, where he was a Director of Engineering for the Edge Computing Network within Global Foundation Services. Prior to Microsoft, Christopher was a Founding Member, Architect, and Lead Developer for Amazon.com’s Elastic Compute Cloud ("EC2"). He holds several patents in the areas of Internet routing, VM/runtime hosting, content delivery and cloud computing.
More than one description of “private cloud computing” has dismissed it as little more than “virtualization on demand.” This begs the question “Is there a difference between the virtualization on demand and private cloud computing?” And if there is, does it matter as long as it’s providing benefit to IT and business stakeholders? In this session we will debate the differences and whether or not such differences (if they do indeed exist) have an impact on the benefits of implementing such architectures in the enterprise environment.
