I will be speaking at the Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, CA on November 2 from 2:25 to 3:10.  If you will be in attendance and would like to speak with me about Telecommunications and /or Cloud Computing please let me know.  My abstract is:

Harnessing Hybrid Clouds – Agility and Choice


How can cloud platforms from different vendors be used to create hybrid clouds that benefit developers and consumers of these platforms? This session will look at Rackspace’s Cloud Servers for Windows and Microsoft’s Windows Azure and address such topics as:

  • the differences between the two platforms
  • the developer experience
  • scenarios in which companies may wish to employ aspects of both platforms in a hybrid cloud experience.
We’ll begin with an overview of hybrid clouds and then move to a Q&A session moderated by Cloud Expo Chair Jeremy Geelan.
