Cloud Expo 2010 East in New York

Cloud Computing is making modern, world-class IT infrastructure available to companies of all sizes regardless of economic cycles.

The Cloud has captured the imagination of IT because it promises compute capacity as a liquid currency that can be shared and made available on demand.

Delegates will be traveling from all over the world to New York this coming April 19-21 to 5th International Cloud Expo in New York City, co-located at the Jacob Javits Convention Center with the 8th Virtualization Conference & Expo.

Here is a round-up of some of the Cloud & Virtualization themes and topics due to be discussed in the Keynotes, General Sessions, Breakout Technical Sessions, and Power Panels...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...

Connected devices are changing the way we go about our everyday life, from wearables to driverless cars, to smart grids and entire industries revolutionizing business opportunities through smart objects, capable of two-way communication.

How do we secure those vast data infrastructures and safe-keep the privacy of sensitive information? This session will outline how each and every connected device can uphold a core root of trust via a unique cryptographic signature – a “bir...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, will discuss how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
