Cloud Computing World Forum Middle East and Africa in Dubai

I had a chance to attend the conference (09-03-2011). It was rich contented and lot of thought process in different angles. Its benefits, commercials, challenges, security, legal and future. One thing sure the drive is towards cloud, it’s private, public and hybrid. Cloud computing is there the time internet started or the mainframe started. Now the service delivery models changed. Tomorrow this service can call it as different name with some added value or modifications. Discussion of PaaS, IaaS, SaaS was fruitful and given thought of the service model. Cloud model has CAPX and OPX benefits. But it’s depends the maturity of the organization or how the approach is. Couple of challenges related to this region discussed about the connectivity, legal aspects and security. More and more players coming this market with different service design. The concept still to go for more maturity and definitions. Virtualisation, consolidation, thin clients are the couple of components making this journey. Anywhere any time access. Optimization and de-duplication also part in it.
