I’m going to be moderating a panel for the virtual conference Cloud Lab ’10 (formerly known as Cloud Slam) the week of April 19. The abstract of the talk is below. If you would like to be a panelist, please leave me a comment and let me know who you are and why you want to be on the panel. As you can see in the abstract, hoping to get a mix of investors, vendors, and end users. Keep in mind this is a virtual conference, so everything will be done via teleconference and webex.
The path from Virtualization 1.0 to Private Cloud: Risks, challenges, and opportunities
Server virtualization has gained widespread acceptance, with most IT organizations obtaining a substantial 1st wave of savings and operational efficiencies. However, obtaining the next wave of savings and business agility is predicated on building internal (private) cloud capabilities. To be successfully deployed, these private cloud environments must be equipped with a new breed of automation tools and management processes that can scale without increasing operational cost and complexity.
In this panel, a group of experienced end users, vendors, and investors discuss the risks, challenges, and opportunities associated with moving from Virtualization 1.0 to Private Clouds. Attendees will walk away with actionable recommendations that they can apply in their move to the Private Cloud.
