Cisco, Microsoft, VMware Senior Execs on Networks and Clouds
Future in Review Infrastructure 2.0 Panel

Senior Tech Company Execs Share Their Perspectives on Cloud Computing and Network Requirements

Future in Review is Mark Anderson's annual tech conference, described by The Economist as “the best technology conference in the world.” Our session on networks and clouds followed Mark’s interview with Microsoft CTO Ray Ozzie on “The Complex World of Emerging Platforms, from Cloud to Phone.” After Ray and Mark set the stage by talking about new platforms and complexity, we had the opportunity to explain why today’s networks need to be automated.

This 30 minute panel “Is the Network Ready for Cloud Computing” includes:

  • Glenn Dasmalchi, Tech Chief of Staff, Office of the CTO, Cisco Systems;
  • Lew Tucker, former Cloud CTO, Cloud Computing, Sun Microsystems;
  • Mark Thiele, VP Data Center Strategy, ServiceMesh;
  • Yousef Khalidi, Distinguished Engineer, Windows Azure, Microsoft;
  • Richard McDougall, Chief Cloud Application Architect and Principal Engineer, Office of the CTO, VMware; and
  • Greg Ness (blog author), Vice President, Infoblox.

You can view the session here.
