Mr. Norris's session titled "Software or Service: Your Own Private Cloud" will review how to set up a private cloud to ensure the decisions made are based on the long-term strategy of the enterprise, and not on the software product. Attendees will learn why placing software on a third party server will yield advantages such as cost reduction and platform management; how to assess the investment needed to get a cloud off the ground; and the expected return.

"Cloud storage is a natural extension of SaaS, applications like SalesForce delivered over the web as a service, and cloud computing, CPU cycles available for rent over the web," said Norris. "The concept is extremely powerful as commodity or repurposed hardware is stitched together to provide a massive pool of compute power. Enterprises can start small with a few servers that are highly scalable to PBs, but managed like a single appliance."
