Cloud Expo, Inc. Names Carmen Gonzalez CEO

Cloud Expo (TM) is the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of the new decade with more than 50,000 to participate annually

SYS-CON announced today that "Cloud Expo, Inc." has spun out of SYS-CON Events, Inc. as a startup events management company which produces and presents Cloud Expo (TM) events worldwide.

Cloud Expo, Inc. will continue producing and presenting "Cloud Expo," which was launched on February 24, 2007, by SYS-CON Events, Inc., the same day the term "cloud computing" was coined. That same year, the first Cloud Expo took place in New York City with 450 delegates.

In April 2010, Cloud Expo is returning to New York City's Jacob Javits Convention Center with more than 5,000 delegates and over 100 sponsors and exhibitors.

"Cloud Expo has become the leading global cloud computing event as Cloud has become synonymous with "computing" and "software" in three short years," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of Cloud Expo, Inc. "Cloud Expo is the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates will participate annually in Cloud Expo New York, Silicon Valley, Prague, Tokyo, and Hong Kong shows."

"What we have done with Cloud Expo is, quite literally, to undergird the explosion of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS with a rock-solid fundament in the form of a broad-spectrum trade show that has a top-class technical program every time and an Expo Floor chock-full of booths representing every layer of the Cloud ecosystem, so that delegates can move easily between Breakout and General sessions to actually tire-kick solutions and ask specific questions about their business requirements and concerns," said Jeremy Geelan, Conference Chair of the Cloud Expo series.

"Most IT professionals recognize that moving from theory into practice is where things can get complicated, and this is where attending a top industry event like Cloud Expo comes in.," Geelan added. "Delegates leave each Cloud Expo with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the Cloud, helping them to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the scalability of their own Enterprise IT endeavors."

A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
Cloud Expo New York will feature 200+ technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading Cloud industry players in the world.

All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the 5th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network this April in New York.

Over 200 corporate sponsors and 10,000 industry professionals became part of Cloud Expo since its inception, more than all other Cloud-related events put together worldwide.

Microservices Articles
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
"DivvyCloud as a company set out to help customers automate solutions to the most common cloud problems," noted Jeremy Snyder, VP of Business Development at DivvyCloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
"Outscale was founded in 2010, is based in France, is a strategic partner to Dassault Systémes and has done quite a bit of work with divisions of Dassault," explained Jackie Funk, Digital Marketing exec at Outscale, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addres...
