Sys-Con’s 4th International Cloud Computing Expo is next Mon-Weds (11/2/09-11/4/09) and GoGrid is exhibiting there. Come join the thousands of registered users who will be attending this event at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA  as it promises to be information-packed about the Cloud and all of its benefits.


Keynote speakers are:

  • Richard Marcello (President, Systems & Technology, Unisys) – “The Time is Right for Enterprise Cloud Computing”
  • Shelton Shugar (SVP Cloud Computing, Yahoo) – “Accelerating Innovation with Cloud Computing”
  • Richard Sarwal (VP of Development for Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle) – “Cloud Computing and the Enterprise”

There will also be a Cloud Computing Bootcamp led by Alan Williamson. I attended a few of the bootcamp sessions last year and these were among the most packed rooms of the conference.

The conference consists of the keynotes (listed above) as well as 7 tracks with a large assortment of speakers. Each speaker track is compartmentalized by category:

  • Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing
  • Management, Testing, Security & Interoperability
  • IaaS, Cloud Platforms, Cloud Storage
  • Hot Topics
  • RIAs in the Cloud, SOA in the Cloud
  • Server, Desktop & Storage Virtualization
  • Management, Performance, Security & Compliance
