The Berkeley Digital Media Conference (>play) brings together creative professionals, industry leaders, and Berkeley students from the Haas School of Business, the College of Engineering and the School of Information, to discuss the trends and challenges that face the digital media industry.

The cloud computing panel will address many questions about this paradigm shift in technology, including: What new opportunities will emerge with cloud computing? How will those opportunities look different within the enterprise and for consumers? What role do platforms play for companies building products that rely on the cloud? How will cloud computing interact or complement the internet? Is there a new business model that will fit naturally, or is there room for business model innovation?

"Clouds (compute and storage) are the best way for the end-customer to get the full value that Moore's law has delivered," said Sajai Krishnan, CEO, ParaScale. "Private clouds allow the leveraging and scaling of standard servers for compute and storage, so much so that the end-user, rather than the vendor, realizes the most benefit. Additionally, as businesses get more and more information intensive, only clouds can provide the necessary horsepower to store and crunch all that data in an affordable way."
