Mosso Co-Founder Jonathan Bryce to Present at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo
Cloud Computing Expo: When Is the Right Time for Standards? - Nov. 19-21, in San Jose, CA

The explosion of cloud computing providers dramatically lowered the barriers to entry for web entrepreneurs and innovative projects. However, the lack of interoperability and consistency across services keeps many businesses from adoption. There have been several calls for standards to help make the cloud more useful to businesses followed by responses from those who fear standards will stifle growth. Who's right? Is there a compromise?

The Founder of Mosso, the cloud computing division of Rackspace, will explore the questions surrounding standards, providing different perspectives and potential outcomes.

Bryce joins a star-studded lineup of speakers covering the hottest IT topic for years, with not just Amazon but also IBM, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Intel, HP and a host of others all offering, using or developing high-end computing services typically described as “cloud computing” - through which massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided as a service using Internet technologies.

Forrester Research analyst James Staten calls cloud computing "classic disruptive innovation - where the mainstream dismisses the product and small companies have time to create a real differentiated value." But there are so many offerings just now that what infrastructure architects are looking for above all is a set of organizing principles they can use to guide them in choosing between them all.

Such principles. and a host of associated topics, will be addressed in San Jose by:

  • Dr Werner Vogels - VP & CTO, Amazon.com (Keynote)
  • Reuven Cohen - Founder & Chief Technologist, Enomaly
  • Mike Eaton - CEO, Cloudworks
