8:30 AM: Opening Remarks
- Speaker: Stacey Higginbotham - Senior Writer, GigaOM
- Speaker: Derrick Harris - Structure Editor and Staff Writer, GigaOM
- Speaker: Om Malik - Founder, GigaOM
- Moderated by: Emcee - Joe Weinman - Worldwide Lead, Communications, Media and Entertainment Industry Solutions, HP
9:00 AM: New Directions for the Cloud
- Speaker: Lew Tucker - VP and CTO, Cloud Computing, Cisco
- Speaker: Joe Weinman - Worldwide Lead, Communications, Media and Entertainment Industry Solutions, HP
The cloud has come so far so quickly it’s tempting to think that we’ve reached maturity, but there are likely to be numerous discontinuities in the next few years. In this dialogue, Lew Tucker, Cisco’s cloud computing vice president and chief technology officer, and Joe Weinman, HP exec and founder of Cloudonomics, discuss what’s coming next. How will OpenStack and Cisco’s Networking-as-a-Service contribution and HP’s Open Cloud Marketplace impact the industry? How much of IT will be in private vs. public clouds? Will the industry be dominated by over-the-top players? Or will telcos, regional players, and vertical specialists have the biggest role? Is the megadatacenter the ultimate architecture, and if not, what current assumptions may be overturned? A great talk that will help map out issues to be discussed over the next two days and the next 18 months.
9:20 AM: The State of the Cloud Address
Speaker: Werner Vogels - CTO, Amazon.com
The Amazon public cloud accounts for an estimated 40% of the total public cloud market. Werner Vogels helped to elevate the cloud computing industry into the mainstream when his team at Amazon launched EC2 and S3. We asked Werner to deliver a very special "State of the Cloud" address in which he talks about where Amazon sees cloud computing currently and where he plans to take the industry next.

Last year, Brazil experienced its fastest economic growth in almost two decades. Gross domestic product expansion was double what economists had expected the country to reach. As it's economy booms, it's demand is outstripping local supply of technical talent and infrastructure. Does Brazil represent a new market and potentially a new partner for American Cloud Services companies? Or will China and India rise to the occasion?
Missing: 11:50 AM: Shaping The Cloud
What further technology leadership will VMware show in shaping the cloud computing industry? VMware defined the category for virtualization and subsequently helped make the term ubiquitous. Formerly at Microsoft, Paul Maritz led the entire software product lines across the board and in no small part created the giant that is MSFT. Now as CEO of VMware, what challenges will Paul Maritz face as VMware shapes the Cloud industry?
12:10 PM: The Economics of Open Everything
- Speaker: Derek Collison - CTO, Chief Archictect, Cloud Division, VMware
- Speaker: Frank Frankovsky - Director, Hardware Design and Supply Chain, Facebook
- Speaker: Forrest Norrod - VP and GM, Server Platforms, Dell
- Moderated by: Lew Moorman - Chief Strategy Officer and President of the Rackspace Cloud, Rackspace
The power of open-source software can’t be denied. At its best, it has democratized innovation and is a stub for other subsequent innovations. Think Apache and the web. But where is the money in it? Does there have to be a profit motive? We talk to two exponents of recent projects -- Open Stack and Cloud Foundry -- both of which are open and have the promise to shake up the cloud industry.
- Speaker: Teresa Lunt - VP and Director of the Computing Science Laboratory, PARC, a Xerox company
The world has changed since networking was invented. Networks are no longer about simply getting messages from point A to B -- now, it's all about multimedia, collaboration, and sharing. Given the ubiquity of devices, networks, and content everywhere, an industry of patchwork services and workarounds has evolved to support these realities. In this talk, Teresa Lunt will discuss content-centric networking, a new approach to networking being developed at PARC and around the world that addresses these and other problems. Content-centric networking simplifies how applications consume content, and enables applications and services to be designed so that more content can be delivered at far less cost. Because it's not ubiquitous if people can't easily get what they need when they need it.
- Speaker: John Stankey - President and CEO, AT&T Business Solutions
- Moderated by: Om Malik - Founder, GigaOM
As cloud users become more mobile, the need for higher bandwidth everywhere will be crucial. With the increased demand for the cloud, the need for reduced latency and high-capacity interconnects will also increase. There are a few companies who have the knowledge and resources to deliver both. Could the cloud represent AT&T’s next great opportunity?
