ENKI Founder & CEO Speaking Next Week at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo November 19-21 in Silicon Valley

"These are still the early days of Cloud Computing, where delivery has so far focused primarily on price, as set by the market leader, Amazon," notes Dave Durkee, Founder, CEO & Technical Director of ENKI Consulting. "However, while successful in the Web 2.0 market," he adds, "price-based cloud computing is falling short of the expectations held by the Enterprise." He will be giving a breakout session next week at SYS-CON's 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (November 19-21, 2008) being held at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA. To address the Enterprise market, in Durkee's view, cloud offerings will begin to move to address the separate market segments that are focused on price and value. "Value-based cloud offerings will focus on Enterprise requirements, including reliability, performance, deployability, security, and services. This means provi... (more)

Yahoo's Director of Grid Services Speaking Next Week at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo November 19-21 in Silicon Valley

Increasingly, a businesses competitive advantage is gained by processing large flows of raw data into insights. "With a growth in both the volume of data and number of users, traditional tools for data analytics struggle to keep pace," says Rob Weltman, Director of Grid Services at Yahoo! and a speaker at SYS-CON's 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (November 19-21, 2008) being held next week at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA. Large Internet services such as Yahoo!, who face a torrent of incoming data from their click-streams, recognized these limits years ago and built cloud-based tools such as Hadoop that can scale horizontally to address this growth. Weltman's session will provide an overview of Hadoop’s map-reduce framework and will describe the analytical applications running on Yahoo!'s Hadoop infrastructure to showcase the wide-range of ...

Web Service Virtualization for SOA Runtime Governance and Control

Managing Web Services in production is no easy task. Ensuring that services follow corporate security and SOA governance requirements, monitoring compliance with individual SLAs, preventing one client from degrading the performance of others and ensuring services built today will work in the future are a few of the challenges. Web service virtualization provides a separate layer that isolates business and operational rules, enabling you to quickly configure virtual Web services while enforcing business and operational policies. This services layer augments Web services management (WSM) tools and registries, making all the services in the enterprise more efficient and consistent. Speaker Bio: Prior to Sonoa, Gregory led the architecture of BEA’s microServiceArchitecture and WebLogic JMS projects. Over the past 15 years in the IT industry, he has worked as a de... (more)

Symantec to Present at the Virtualization Conference & Expo, June 23-24, in New York City

Service Virtualization: Got Grid?

There is considerable attention being paid to service oriented architectures (SOA) and their promise of leveraging new and existing application components – services – in composite applications that may span multiple business units within an organization. While the construction, or enablement, of these services is well defined, what is often left as an assumption is that once deployed, the service will simply be available. The reality is that if consideration is not given to the reliability, availability and recoverability of your services, then you may find yourself leaping from the frying pan and into the fire. This presentation will discuss the use of service virtualization and grid technology to enable service execution. Using existing grid technologies, organizations can achieve guaranteed, horizontal scaling of service execution across the entire c... (more)
