The future model for providing IT infrastructure and services in large organizations is what many today are calling "Cloud Computing" - a concept popularized by Amazon through its web services efforts. Merrill Lynch analysts for example reckon that by 2011 the volume of Cloud Computing market opportunity will amount to $160BN, including $95N in business and productivity apps (e-mail, office, CRM, etc.) and $65BN in online advertising.
Cloud Computing has many interpreters just now - and many interpretations. One thing is certain: it is the most dynamic new metaphor to hit enterprise computing since the creation of the "Web" by Tim Berners-Lee.
SYS-CON's 3rd international Virtualization Conference & Expo, which took place June 23-24, 2008 in New York City, attracted more qualified delegates than any Gartner event in the past two years. The two content-packed days emphasized value with a rich array of sessions about the business and technical value of virtualization.
