According to a research report by 451 Market Monitor, the Cloud Computing marketplace will reach $16.7 billion in revenue this year, including the large and well-established SaaS category, compared to a revenue of $8.7 billion in 2010.

As for Big Data, the total Big Data market reached $11.4 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $18.2 billion this year, according to a report published recently by Wikibon. IDC says Big Data will be $24B market by 2016.

Put simply, there's a massive transformation under way from buying IT to IT being a broker for service providers and IT consumed on demand.

Then comes Software-Defined Networking. Like Big Data, SDN is a trend that is changing the landscape of the networking industry today. Enterprises are expecting more agility from their data center plumbing to properly accommodate innovation that's going on in other departments.

Preview a selection of Breakout Technical & Strategy Sessions

Take a deep-dive into all three of these massive waves of IT innovation at 12th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo New York, co-located with 3rd International Big Data Expo (and introducing SDN Expo). The combined event is being held June 10-13, 2013, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.

The Cloud Expo / Big Data Expo series is the undisputed market-leading event in the Cloud & Big Data industry sector, and has been growing show-on-show for eleven successive and successful events. Now we are adding SDN as a new theme, just to make the content mix richer still.

The event is widely known to comprise 4 high-energy days, and the overall technical program is rich and diffuse, with lots of great sessions. In fact it is going to be our biggest ever, including:

  • 175+ Technical & Strategy Sessions
  • 4 fast-moving Cloud Computing & Big Data "Power Panels"
  • 90,000 sq. foot Expo Floor (Cloud Expo/Big Data Expo's biggest ever)
  • Demo Theater for use by Exhibitors
  • SYS-CON.TV interview studio

Whether you are a large enterprise, a growing business, a government organization, or a service provider, the Javits Center in New York City is THE place you need to be June 10-13.

CloudEXPO Stories
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
