The Chairman, Founder & CTO of 3Leaf Systems, Bob Quinn, will be presenting at SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York City this coming March 30-April 1, 2009. Quinn, who before founding 3Leaf was founder and CEO of Network Virtual Systems (NVS) and founder and chairman of iMODL, will be addressing how networking infrastructure and servers are evolving to bring on-demand IT to the cloud.
"Cloud computing is enabled by virtualization, and virtualization means separating the OS and its application stack from computing hardware that executes code," observes Quinn. "Today cloud computing uses off-the-shelf-servers and, through virtualization, allows a user of the cloud to choose the size of the cloud-server as some fraction of a standard server, measured by the amount of memory, the amount of CPU, or a combination of both," he continues.
"An enterprise using cloud computing as an IT infrastructure needs on demand agility, so the size of the server provided by the cloud is easily changed, and should has no limits. Enterprises want the ability to grow a server from a single core and 1GByte of memory to a server with hundreds of cores and terabytes of memory; and all with no interruption in service," adds Quinn.

Cloud Computing Is Swelling Into an Estimated $36BN Market
Over the next five years, IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost threefold, reaching $42 billion by 2012 and accounting for some 9% of total software sales. More importantly, spending on cloud computing will accelerate throughout the forecast period, capturing 25% of IT spending growth in 2012 and nearly a third of growth the following year.
Cloud computing helps IT cut infrastructure costs while adding new features and services to grow core businesses. Clouds can help grow margins as costs are cut back but service offerings are expanded.
