The explosion of cloud computing providers dramatically lowered the barriers to entry for web entrepreneurs and innovative projects. However, the lack of interoperability and consistency across services keeps many businesses from adoption. There have been several calls for standards to help make services from different cloud providers interoperable and ultimately more useful to businesses. Uncertainty abounds, with questions such as "Are standards really needed?" "Who should be involved?" and "What are potential consequences?"
In this session, Jonathan Bryce, co-founder of Mosso, the cloud computing division of Rackspace, and provider of the industry's most open cloud platform, will explore the pros and cons of standards, providing insight from customer feedback, and Mosso's experience.
Jonathan Bryce is Founder at Mosso. He started his career working as a web developer for the managed hosting giant, Rackspace. Jonathan had a vision to build a web hosting environment where users could develop their ideal website, and Mosso was born. Currently, Jonathan oversees all operations and customer service served by Mosso, which is the cloud computing division of Rackspace.
Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, November 19-20-21, 2008
SYS-CON Events announced today that Amazon CTO Dr. Werner Vogels will deliver the opening keynote at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (www.cloudcomputingexpo.com), which will take place November 19-21, at the Fairmont Hotel at the heart of Silicon Valley, in San Jose, California. The first International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will be colocated with the 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo (www.virtualizationconference.com)..
Building the right infrastructure that can scale up or down at a moment's notice can be a complicated and expensive task, but it's essential in today's business landscape. This applies to an enterprise trying to cut-costs, a young business unexpectedly saturated with customer demand, or a start-up looking to launch.
There are many challenges when building a reliable, flexible architecture that can manage unpredictable behaviors of today's internet business. This presentation will review some of the lessons learned from building one of the world's largest distributed systems; Amazon.com. The focus will be on state management which is one of the dominating factors in the scalability, reliability, performance and cost-effectiveness of the overall system.

Cloud Computing and Corporate Culpability
Re: Cloud Computing Security Risks and Accountability for Loss of Data, Breach of Privacy and Other Violations
I am not a lawyer. I don't play one on television. And after my last divorce, I have no motivation to further enrich any member of the legal profession. Nevertheless, my first and best advice to any American business executive considering "cloud computing", "SaaS" or "PaaS" as cost-cutting solutions in recessionary times is GET THEE TO AN ATTORNEY!
Regardless of who wins the White House next Tuesday--Oblabla and the Mouth, or Geezer and Gidget--and no matter what remuda of Republocrats controls our Congress thereafter, the recently exposed excesses of Wall Street's Bonus Buccaneer CEOs guarantee increased scrutiny and accountability for executives at all levels and in all arenas, including and perhaps especially that of the CIO. In such a charged political environment, any harm, damage, loss or breach of HIPAA or other privacy mandates attributable to corporate decisions to outsource sensitive information for bottom-line benefit is likely to have repercussions that go far beyond reversing any perceived savings. And when time comes for the ax to fall in the boardroom--or worse, the gavel in the courtroom--rest assured that your cries to blame the Data Manager in Mumbai will fall on deaf ears.
