Cloud Expo 2016 New York at the Javits Center New York was characterized by increased attendance and a new focus on operations. These were both encouraging signs for all involved in Cloud Computing and all that it touches. As Conference Chair, I work with the Cloud Expo team to structure three keynotes, numerous general sessions, and more than 150 breakout sessions along 10 tracks. Our job is to balance the state of enterprise IT today with the trends that will be commonplace tomorrow. Mobile Computing, Big Data and Analytics, the Internet of Things, Platforms and Microservices and Containers, DevOps, and WebRTC are all part and parcel of Cloud Computing today. But First... We started this year's conference on a solemn note, with a video tribute to former Conference Chair and SYS-CON Media Editorial Director Jeremy Geelan, who recently lost a truly heroic, seven-y...

In Remembrance of Jeremy Geelan By @IoT2040 @CloudExpo

I'm going to cry tonight, long and hard. I'll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo's headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn't called Cloud Expo then, of course - it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn't have a job there, or even a job offer. He was simply a fan of the technology and the show. So when his wife, a Danish diplomat, was rel... (more)

Sine-Wave Tech and IoT OS

"What if your assets, your infrastructure, your devices, and your products were connected and communicating?" This is a question asked by the folks at Hopkinton, MA-based Sine-Wave, which has developed and deploys an IoT Operating System. The Sine-Wave IoT OS is designed for "enterprise companies looking to create significant competitive advantage quickly an efficiently," the company says. We asked Sine-Wave CEO Jonathan Clark (pictured below) a few questions along those lines, and this is what he told us: IoT Journal: The company has been around since 2005, before the term Intern...

Azul Systems Focuses on "Actionable" Big Data

Azul Systems was at the recent Red Hat Summit, and so it seemed only logical to catch up with CTO and co-founder Gil Tene (pictured below). I last interviewed him more than five years ago, which is hard for me to believe. The sands of time and all that. This is one of the original great Java companies, so heck, it was time. Roger: Let's start with a quick review of these past years. What are the big issues facing Azul these days? Gil: This is a good time and a good business climate for Azul. We are seeing a resurgence of both Java and other languages that use the JVM, and devel... (more)

Will Google Subvert Microsoft's Dominant Paradigm?

Will Google co-founder Larry Page (on the right in the pic with co-founder Sergey Brin) announce a Microsoft-hostile $200 PC at the CES show in Las Vegas on Friday? Speculation, backed by informed reporting in places such as the Los Angeles Times, is running rampant that this will be so. The speculation about this systems, which won't be running Windows and reportedly may be running home-brewed Google OS of some sort, is setting technology industry speculation into the highest gear it's seen since, uh, Google's IPO. One analyst has emerged from the pack to make a bubblesque predict... (more)
