Special Track: Cloud Computing and Virtualization
International Conference on Cloud Computing and Virtualization is the only event focused on how traditional enterprises can adopt cloud computing models, featuring panels of thought leaders, candid conversations with industry luminaries. The conference is a reality check to better understand enterprise cloud computing.
Cloud computing is big news, promising unlimited capacity and pay-as-you-go economics, plus connections to an always-on world. Enterprises are excited about cloud computing but little of it is ready to use yet. Clouds present security risks, and many enterprise applications have to be completely rewritten to run on scalable clouds. Forward-thinking business leaders are using the cloud within their enterprise data centers to take advantage of the best practices that cloud computing has established, namely scalability, agility, automation, and resource sharing. Although the term 'cloud computing' is relatively new, the technologies that make it possible have been used for some time. For example, cloud computing is enabled by grid computing, virtualization, utility computing, hosting and software as a service (SaaS).
Virtualization is driving a fundamental shift in how we think about data center environments. It is lowering capital and operational costs, enabling IT agility, underlying Green IT initiatives and fueling the cloud. This conference helps us to be aware of this paradigm shift and discusses the benefits of virtualization.
