Cloud computing revolutionized application design, and changed the way people think about infrastructure. The rise of cloud computing coincided with a new generation of applications and services that required scale. New architecture and design had to take into account low latency network connectivity, geographic distribution, large real-time data stores, the ability to meet demand (while not knowing exactly how much demand to handle), and so much more. We refer to this as Internet Scale. We see a market trend with prospects and customers asking for hybrid hosting environments that include public cloud, private cloud, dedicated servers, storage and managed hosting. Leveraging these products and services they want to architect and deliver a solution that is Internet Scale. From a technology perspective, what is Internet Scale? Is it really viable to build to Internet Scale in a hosted environment? What does it take to achieve true Internet Scale?
In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Director of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will focus on the enabling technologies, design, and architecture of Internet Scale solutions. It will go beyond GHz, RAM size and network throughput to focus on a comprehensive approach that covers everything from hardware to application design to deployment. He will also discuss best customer and technology practices in the hosting industry.

"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade.
