Do federated clouds deliver?

When enterprises require data to be stored in a specific country just to get closer to the user, one size does not fit all and the federated model becomes compelling in the way in which it creates continuity. Can a geographically federated approach really ensure a consistent level of service quality?

12:00 PM

Forget cloud, you need a business-class “fabric”

Pre-cloud was so easy, when it came to buying, that is. You bought a data center, you bought connectivity, and you made it work. Nowadays, with clouds and hybrid clouds and more complex infrastructure needs, we are pushing our boundaries of what we can do within the infrastructure world as we know it. That is, until now. Perhaps we should let our machines decide what they need and when they need it and let them do the provisioning.

12:20 PM

Debate: Hadoop vs. the world

As the demand for analyzing data sets of increasing variety and scale continues to explode, the software options for performing this analysis are beginning to proliferate. On one hand, traditional relational-database technology has been extended so that database systems can approach large-scale deployments. At the same time the open-source Hadoop framework is becoming increasingly popular. Both options have advantages and disadvantages, but which will come out on top?

(Optional Workshops)

1:15 PM – Red Hat Sponsor Workshop – Esperance Room

The key to the hybrid cloud is being open

Hybrid cloud computing allows you to leverage both private and public infrastructure as part of your cloud strategy. Openness is the key to making hybrid clouds a reality. An open approach to the cloud puts you in control of decisions and choices and allows you to scale securely by easily leveraging public clouds and bringing the benefits of the cloud across all of your IT resources, not just a subset. It also gives you the ability to avoid cloud silos, prevent one vendor from controlling your economic model and your access to innovation, and manage applications and data across your choice of a diverse infrastructure, all giving you an easy on-ramp without migration.

Speakers: Chris Wells

– Senior Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat – USA

1:15 PM – NuoDB Sponsor Workshop – Otter Room

Scaling databases in the cloud: It’s easy now
