Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web
sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT
operations managers, and new/growing companies in every case to "suck it and
see" by downloading or otherwise sampling the offering in question for

There are things in life that are just painful -- Doing dishes, paying taxes,
going to the dentist, and upgrading software. One of the most painful IT life
cycle events is upgrading from an older version of an operating system (OS)
to a newer one. In fact, there are 10s of millions of servers still running
Windows Server 2003, hosting applications that run important functions. The
problem is that Window Server 2003 is about to lose support from Microsoft
(end of life (EOL)) leaving many with a really difficult choice. Upgrade or
face escalating risk of security holes being exploi... (more)

Here's my premise: high impact, culture-bending technological innovations -
however different they may be one from another - conform to a predictable
template of evolution. It goes something like this:
1. Break-thru - The point of entry at which a technology breaks
onto the market scene doing something old in a dramatically new way. The
break-thru vendor, frequently a modest sized venture or start-up, faces the
uphill struggle to educate, and otherwise evangelize its would-be market.
It is an expensive, labor-intensive phase in which t... (more)
Information security personnel suffer from information overload on a nearly
daily basis, but need to sift through myriad articles, reports, blogs, logs,
and scans to do their jobs. Information is vital to successful web
application security strategies, whether it be information about a new
attack, a new twist on an existing attack, or identifying weak points in web
applications. Investments in security solutions have to provide a clear
value, which equals additional time spent collecting and documenting proof of
this value. The latest version of F5 BIG-IP Application Security Man... (more)

"So, VMware ... separate hardware from OS = virtual server, right? Well,
we're like that but completely different - we separate application from OS =
virtualized application." Because we're in the vast virtualization market
space with a technology that is unique (patented), I am often asked to
differentiate AppZero's server-side application virtualization from the rest
of the pack. Especially in the Oracle/Sun/Solaris/SPARC context.
And especially since we've been promoting a Webinar series drawing a straight
line from ancient Solaris 2.6 and 7 applications to execution on OS and ... (more)
