This session provides a technical overview of how cloud computing can be made secure across various networks architectures and deployments. This talk was presented at the 2nd Annual IndicThreads.com Conference On Upcoming Technology (Cloud Computing) held in June 2011 in Pune, India.
Cloud Computing has had phenomenal growth over the past year and continues to entrench itself in all facets of IT. Cloud Computing is definitely more than just a buzz word or a passing trend. Now the heavy weights like IBM, HP and SAP are ready lock horns with existing players like Amazon, Salesforce and Microsoft whose offerings have matured over a period of time. Besides these big players, a lot of start ups are coming up with innovative offerings in this space.
The talk is about the current state of affairs in the cloud computing. It covers the products, services and offerings that have been making a lot of noise in the cloud computing space.

The good folks at IndicThreads, Harshad Oak and Sangeeta Oak, organized the IndicMobile conference. The venue and arrangements were very good and the set of speakers top notch. The choice of topics was varied enough to be comprehensive and yet very relevant and amenable for deep enough dives. Overall, a great interaction and learning opportunity that I and my colleagues enjoyed. I also enjoyed live tweeting along with Saurabh, PuneLive, Mukund, Vishvesh. Here are my notes from the conference. They are longish, but then it was a two day affair, and I have tried to be brief.
VMware has released Java and Python open-source software development kits (SDKs) for the VMware vCloud API, making it easier for developers and ISVs to jumpstart their projects by flexibly leveraging private and public cloud services. The new Python and Java SDKs for the VMware vCloud API will simplify and accelerate developers’ ability to leverage VMware vCloud services.
Top predictions for the cloud computing industry in 2010 by Elastra Corp. Stuart Charlton, CTO at Elastra says “In 2009 we saw a lot of large enterprises get their feet wet with cloud computing. They were testing the waters and trying to figure out a model that fits for the way they operate. In 2010 we will see a lot more projects kick off and the growth of private clouds in major companies. Thankfully the hype cycle of cloud computing has faded. Now the real adoption of this exciting technology in the enterprise can finally begin.”
