Cloud Connect

cclogoTechweb — the folks behind Interop — are launching what promises to be the definitive cloud computing conference. It’s called Cloud Connect, and while it’s still half a year away, we’re hard at work on content and scheduling.

There have been lots of cloud-specific events. But as clouds become an IT reality, the industry needs to focus on specific aspects of utility computing: performance, availability, scalability, and security, for example.

Cloud Connect will have tracks for cloud providers, CIOs and architects, developers, and operators. We’ve assembled around 40 experts to help guide the content (affectionately dubbed the Cloud Crowd) and we’ll be announcing more details soon.
