Cloud computing leverages a myriad of Virtualization technologies. In his session at 1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo (GovITExpo.com), Harry Foxwell of Sun Microsystems Federal will review and discuss the benefits and trade-offs of applying the various virtualization techniques within the cloud.
GovITExpo, which is being held October 6, 2009 in Washington, DC, builds on the success of SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, the fastest-growing conference anywhere in the world devoted to the delivery of massively scalable IT as a service using Internet technologies. Data storage, security and software services are among the major themes of the technical program.
About the Speaker:
Dr Harry Foxwell is Chief Technologist, Sun Microsystems Federal, Inc.
Cloud Computing is one three main tracks. According to the Washington Post this week, the U.S. Census Bureau is using Salesforce's cloud to manage the activities of about 100,000 partner organizations across the country. And the Defense Department's technology arm has already set up a cloud to let the military rent storage space or use remote software programs. Companies like online application provider NetSuite have shifted their focus to federal sales, on the basis that what works for Enterprise IT can also work for Government.
There will be breakout sessions on the security issues that are unique to the Cloud, such as the crucial distinction between Private and Public clouds. There will be sessions too on the Data.gov vision of Vivek Kundra, America's first Chief Information Officer. Expert speakers from government and the software industry alike will be looking at issues such as the requirements for how companies can handle government information and how information can be most successfully shared by multiple clouds.
With major companies like Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Sun, HP and Google all currently championing various cloud computing offerings for the federal government, there will be no shortage of exhibitors either on the Expo Floor.
Doing more with less is the new reality for most IT departments, and the Government is no exception. So the cost-effectiveness of technologies such as Virtualization will also be foremost on the agenda.
Alongside the Cloud Computing and SOA & Virtualization tracks there will also be a third standalone track on Security & Compliance.
"Our organizing principle at GovITExpo is that, through our intensive two-day schedule of keynotes, general and breakout sessions, attending delegates will be assured of leaving the event with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to whatever federal agency they work for or with - helping agencies to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the efficiency and scalability of their IT initiatives," said Jeremy Geelan, Sr. Vice-President, SYS-CON Events.
