Hear from IT leaders, industry experts and developers at the defining event that brings together the entire cloud computing community.
CTO, Blue Mountain Labs
As CTO of BML, David Linthicum focuses on emerging technology spaces and the industry's move toward cloud computing. Linthicum is a widely recognized technology thought leader who has appeared in InfoWorld, Intelligent Enterprise, and eBizq.net, covering SOA and enterprise computing topics. He is a regular columnist in Government Computer News, Cloud Computing Journal, SOA Journal and Align Journal, and is the editor of Virtualization Journal. In addition to daily communications, Linthicum is the author of 13 books on 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.
