My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
The Big Cloud Debate @CloudCamp London
I noted with interest that the next CloudCamp London has been announced for Thursday 11th March, the last couple that I attended were pretty similar and other than some useful networking there was nothing really new/different that jumped out at me; so I wasn’t sure I would go to the next one as it seemed to have run out of steam a little until I noticed this on the agenda for March;
"The Big Cloud Debate " : A presidential style 4 way debate pitching 4 divergent views and approaches to cloud computing against each other. The speakers are:
- Matt Deacon – Microsoft
- Simon Wardley – Canonical
- Rod Johnston – VMware
- Chris Richardson Thoughtworks
The reason this is of interest to me? Rod Johnston came to VMware via the Springsource acquisition, I assume Matt Deacon will be discussing Microsoft’s Azure platform. plus CloudCamp London mainstay Simon Wardley from Cannonical I assume taking the EC2/Ubuntu angle and Chris Richardson (who I think has this blog; ex-springsource?
Should be an interesting debate, I think it would also be good to have a similar format debate with this panel (or the companies they represent) around the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) / private vs. public cloud angle – CloudCamp always has a software focus, but I think the cloud infrastructure debate has a lot of scope and a good potential audience
Registration doesn’t seem to be open to the general public yet, but I’m sure it will soon – maybe see you there.
