ODCA Shapes the Future of Cloud with Forecast 2012One of the aspects I enjoy most about the Open Data Center Alliance is how it enables "buy" and "sell" side players to come together for open conversations on how to collectively shape the cloud moving forward.
With the Alliance recently publishing RFP verbiage in line with five of their usage model requirements, we are seeing the beginnings of enterprises testing solutions through proofs of concept on their way to mainstream, production deployments later this year. This is a very exciting time for the ODCA and cloud, and it's why I'd encourage you to attend the upcoming ODCA Forecast 2012 event being held on June 12th in New York City at Cloud Expo. Featuring participation from leading cloud experts including Curt Aubley, VP of Cyber Security for Lockheed Martin, Andrew Stokes, Chief Infrastructure Architect at Deutsche Bank, and Petteri Uljas, CEO of Cap Gemini Finland, the event will bring together the best of ODCA - voices from across the technology spectrum on how the future of cloud computing is shaping in 2012.
