Keynote Address by Richard McDougall (Infrastructure CTO, VMware): Future of Big Data

Over the last few years we’ve seen a frenzy of interest and buzz around the area of Big Data. Beyond the hype, there is a solid base of growing use cases, which are becoming center stage to most businesses. 2012 was the year of awareness. There was a great amount of sharing from the early core developers of the analytic platforms – showing the rest of the world the capabilities of the tools and platforms that had been developed for special purpose high scale analytics. The big names at the core of open source analytics development include Facebook, eBay, Linkedin, Twitter – all blazing the trail with new approaches. These companies brought along with them a new and expanding interest in leveraging the same technologies for commercial interest. 

This talk is focused at how a growing number of enterprises that are already heavily invested in the use cases –  but by volume, most customers now have some form of big data proof-of-concept underway. These proof of concepts typically start with a thesis of how competitive advantage can be gained through insight from the data. A proof of concept can quickly validate the theory, and helps sell further investment in the analytics platform, and it snowballs from there.

IaaS: Trends in Software Defined Networks

All the attention in cloud so far has really been focused on compute and storage. The network has been strangely missing from the conversation. Businesses are now realizing the benefits of SDN. According to a recent report by Deloitte Consulting, firms using Software-Defined Networking (SDN) can save up to 50% on their networking bills.

This talk will discuss trends in software defined networks ranging from OpenStack Quantum to Amazon VPC to what is going on in enterprise networks to support cloud.

Keynote Address by Lucas Carlson (CEO, AppFog): The Future of Enterprise IT: Manage Cloud Sprawl or Become Irrelevant

We’ve all heard again and again that the cloud enables agility and velocity, and creates independence for business lines within the enterprise. Without coordination and oversight, however, the easy and widespread access to a mix of public, private and hybrid cloud solutions across IaaS, SaaS and PaaS has resulted in unchecked cloud sprawl within organizations. Cloud sprawl is splintering applications, systems and solutions across the enterprise. It has left IT without any visibility or authority, while accountability continues to be firmly placed on their shoulders. This is creating levels of complexities and liabilities that defy business sense. It has also resulted in enterprises missing opportunities, including better cost management.

 Lucas Carlson, AppFog’s CEO, will discuss the value of IT not only in ensuring business-critical coordination, compliance and security, as well as cost-savings, but also the role IT can play in championing innovation. He will present systems and solutions that will allow IT to deliver all the benefits of cloud adoption, all the speed and velocity, while maintaining the crucial ability to govern. This keynote is based on AppFog's own experience in meeting the challenges of running a public cloud strategy at scale, without reverting to the traditional and unsustainable option of vendor lock-in. It also draws from AppFog’s deep experience in developing, deploying and managing private and hybrid cloud solutions.

From Digital Data Dumping Ground to Ultimate Business Insight

When organizations decide on Hadoop, one of their top most concerns is which Hadoop distribution to choose. There are a few distributions which have gained traction within enterprises while others are new in market and trying to show their potential. Today, enterprises can choose from Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, HDInsight or build their own distribution from scratch. Also, once the selection is made, enterprises need a path to process and gain insight from their extremely large datasets in a way that is interactive and exploratory. This session will provide key detailed information about these various distributions and key selection criteria to make an informed decision to go from digital data dumping ground to ultimate business insight.

 We all know that the world continues its break-neck pace of change, and how those changes are profoundly affecting the world around us. One of the easiest places to spot and understand the impact of such changes is in the field of information technology. We've already seen exponential growth in the amount of data generated year over year. Now we're starting to see acceleration in the form of data analytics--getting our arms around big data using advanced analytics software. In fact, we are starting to see a new generation of applications which ties disparate data and data sources into a cohesive whole...giving businesses a new and unique perspective on their markets, their operations, and their ecosystems.

PaaS on Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC)

Just like SDN, the Software Defined Data Center is a programmable means of manipulating and configuring a pool of resources—storage, compute, memory and bandwidth—to meet the needs of a particular service. When we layer PaaS on top of a SDDC, the environment conforms to the needs of the service without the need for human intervention. This model provides the culmination of server and network virtualization where resource pools -- regardless of their physical location -- are automatically provisioned to fit the demands of an organization's applications. The model promises an unprecedented level of flexibility and simplicity for companies embracing cloud computing, but the porous nature of the cloud also exposes companies to a greater array of security threats.

Keynote Address By Michael Toplisek (EVP, EarthLink) : A Day in the Life of the SMB

How can I benefit from the cloud?  I hear about the cloud all the time, but what will it really do for me and my business?  These and other questions about “cloud” and IT services are part of the day in the life of every SMB (Small to Medium-sized Business) customer in the U.S. market.  The reason they are in business or running a business does not center around Cloud and IT, but on their business.  Whether it is keeping the retail sales flowing or food products going out the door, which is why they are in business.  A good IT services and Cloud provider is there to provide the support they need to run their businesses more efficiently and effectively so they can truly focus on what they love, their business.  Michael Toplisek, the EVP of Marketing and Product at EarthLink will use real customer examples to illustrate how excellent cloud services can help the smb customer lift some of the burdens of their daily business allowing them to do the things they do best.

Epic Cloud Failure & What to Do When it Happens.

When it comes to Cloud Services, the forecast is sometimes "Cloudy with a chance of Failure". Public cloud outages continue to remind businesses of the causalities of the cloud; however outages with large public cloud providers aren’t more common than they are with a business’ own private infrastructure. Organizations need to expose themselves to and design for failure early and often, quickly learn from their mistakes, and use those lessons to build a robust and dynamic infrastructure that can withstand any cloud failure. This session will cover many ways to help you avoid the impacts of any public cloud providers’ next cloud outage.
