Virtualization Conference & Expo 2009 East - Keynotes
Day 1: March 30, 2009
Dr. Werner Vogels
Amazon.com




Ahead in the Cloud - The Power of Infrastructure as a Service


Building the right infrastructure that can scale up or down at a moment's notice can be a complicated and expensive task, but it's essential in today's business landscape. This applies to an enterprise trying to cut-costs, a young business unexpectedly saturated with customer demand, or a start-up looking to launch.

There are many challenges when building a reliable, flexible architecture that can manage unpredictable behaviors of today's internet business. This presentation will review some of the lessons learned from building one of the world's largest distributed systems; Amazon.com. The focus will be on state management which is one of the dominating factors in the scalability, reliability, performance and cost-effectiveness of the overall system.


About the Speaker:
Dr. Werner Vogels is Vice President & Chief Technology Officer at Amazon.com where he is responsible for driving the company's technology vision. Prior to joining Amazon, he worked as a research scientist at Cornell University where he was a principal investigator in several research projects that target the scalability and robustness of mission-critical enterprise computing systems.

Dr Vogels holds a Ph.D. from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and has authored close to 80 articles for journals and conferences, most of them on distributed systems technologies for enterprise computing.

Day 2: March 31, 2009
Dr. Kristof Kloeckner
IBM


Cloud Computing and the Enterprise

This presentation will draw on IBM’s experience working with customers and operating 13 cloud centers world wide to review the conditions under which cloud computing can deliver its promise of flexibility and cost savings in the delivery of IT services to the enterprise.

Kristof Kloeckner will discuss the importance of dynamic infrastructures and service management for both public and private clouds, cloud service life cycles and integration between public clouds and enterprise services. He will also talk about standards required for interoperability between clouds and application scenarios that demonstrate the use of cloud computing in an enterprise context for a smarter planet.


About the Speaker:
Kristof Kloeckner, CTO, Enterprise Initiatives and Vice President Cloud Computing Platforms at IBM, is based in Armonk, New York. In this role, he defines and drives IBM's cloud technology strategy and integrates the cloud R&D activities across the company.


Day 3: April 1, 2009
David Douglas
Sr. VP of Cloud Computing, Sun




A World of Many Clouds

Sun is committed to making cloud computing a pervasive reality. Sun's open source philosophy and Java principles form the core of a strategy to provide interoperability for large-scale computing resources through open and transparent cloud platforms that minimize lock-in. Sun envisions a world of many clouds, delivered by different service providers, to meet a variety of business needs.

  • Public: A scalable, multi-tenant environment you can leverage with minimal upfront resources to deploy applications quickly
  • Private: A data center you that you own/operate, built to cloud standards, to service both internal and external customers, control costs, and smooth demand
  • Hybrid: You own some, retaining control over key parts of your infrastructure. And you use some, leveraging public resources to test applications, add additional capacity when needed, and offload non-critical resources.

This keynote session by Sun's Dave Douglas will investigate how enterprise IT operations can take advantage of this emerging world of many clouds to achieve the cost and flexibility advantages that cloud computing allows while maintaining control of their IT infrastructure.

About the Speaker:
Dave Douglas is Chief Sustainability Officer at Sun Microsystems. He is also, as Sr. VP of Cloud Computing,  responsible for Sun's cloud computing business, with a focus on creating reliable, scalable and sustainable computing and storage servers, as well as the company's developer tools and services. In addition, Douglas oversees the strategy and execution of environmental initiatives across the company, including enhancements to Sun's products in the areas of energy efficiency, cooling technologies, product recycling and clean manufacturing.

He has been in the high-tech industry for more than two decades, including more than ten years of experience leading organizations to build more innovative, efficient, and eco responsible products and has a long-standing passion about environmental issues. He earned both B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. He is on the board of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) and a Sr. Fellow at the Breakthrough Institute.
