When Sun announced its Open Cloud Platform today, developers around the world with an interest in cloud computing benefited from the arrival on the scene of a powerful new force in favor of cloud architecture that is both interoperable and open. According to Sun's Sr. VP of Cloud Computing, David Douglas, what Sun envisions is "a world of many clouds - public and private - that are open and interoperable" and this paradigm shift away from proprietary clouds is a recurring theme in the infrastructure industry.
But a world of multiple clouds is not without its complications. Thorsten von Eicken, for example, the CTO of RightScale, says that one burning question he's hearing right now is "How do you actually deploy an app across multiple clouds?"
Meantime Reuven Cohen, Founder & Chief Technologist at Toronto-based Enomaly Inc., considers the issue so important he helped to start the Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum (with its accompanying online forum, Cloud Interoperability Magazine, saying that the industry needs to create an open unified cloud interface and achieve the unification of existing IT and cloud based infrastructures (a.k.a. hybrid computing).
Both Cohen and von Eicken, along with a welter of their industry peers with special knowledge of interop and other related issues, are featured speakers at SYS-CON's upcoming 3-day Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York (March 30-April 1, 2009), where many of the sessions reflect this view that we are moving into an era of multiple types of cloud, public and private, open and proprietary - a world of "many clouds."
As for Douglas, he is one of three distinguished Keynote Speakers at the event and will be keynoting exactly on this issue of how enterprise IT operations can best take advantage of the emerging world of multiple clouds to achieve the cost and flexibility advantages that cloud computing allows while maintaining control of their IT infrastructure.
Another keynoter, IBM's Dr Kristof Kloeckner - who is CTO of Enterprise Initiatives and VP of Cloud Computing Platforms in the IBM Software Group - is presenting a keynote address that will talk about the standards required for interoperability between clouds. IBM, like Sun, sees the world as being a mix of clouds - of private and public clouds, for example.
Among the 102 differerent breakout and general sessions on offer in New York (view Schedule here), the main sessions focused on these inter-related issues include:
KEYNOTE - A World of Many Clouds
Leveraging the Clouds for Reliable Web Apps
Thorsten von Eicken
Implementing Cloud Storage: Public or Private?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
