Massive Scale-Out and The Emergence of Cloud Computing
Speaker: Ed Turkel (Director, Product and Technology Marketing, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure Organization, HP)
The IT industry is in the early stages of a major shift to new business and deployment models that are generally being referred to as "cloud computing". Instead of buying or leasing IT, enterprises and individuals can access a wide range of services deployed over the internet. Services include everything from business services to applications, to compute cycles, to bulk storage, to shared databases and more. Business models vary, from contracted sets of services with SLAs, to Software as a Service (SaaS), to totally ad-hoc use of services on a pay-as-you-go basis. HP has a broad set of programs to address this shift in the industry, including a portfolio scale-out systems, software, infrastructure and services. This talk will provide an overview of the shift that is happening in the industry and will describe some of HP's activities to deliver scale-out solutions to power cloud computing.
