The Cloud Control Conference and Exhibition debuting in Boston on July 19th is a refreshing splash within the ocean of cloud conferences that have emerged over the past year or so. This event proposes a new opportunity to professionals in the crowded cloud space and will be collocated with the Green Data Center Conference, giving attendees the hands down, most comprehensive conference experience available. Among the many subjects covered across the three day event a focus will be given to the following cloud topics:

  •     Benefits, Cost Analysis and ROI
  •     Security Questions, Answers and Obstacles
  •     IT Migration Strategies and Deployment Challenges
  •     Storage, Scalability, Interoperability and the Service Model

Unlike other exhibitor driven functions, the Cloud Control Conference focuses on educating todays Enterprises about the benefits of cloud computing, the risks and obstacles involved with a cloud migration, and some technical aspects that new users must be aware of as they make their approach. The conference’s focus on education comes in the form of use cases and case study presentations. The agenda is full of non-service provider entities discussing their experiences with migration and management.

To kick off the event, Adam Swidler of Google Enterprise, will be co-presenting with his customer Chet Loveland, CISO of MeadWestvaco, a multinational Fortune 500 manufacturing corporation. Loveland and Swidler will discuss the process and deployment of Google’s cloud based services within MWV’s existing IT architecture. NASA CIO, James Williams, will deliver an exciting case study presentation. Williams will analyze the evolution of the NASA Nebula program and it’s function. Nebula combines the computing power of a container data center with the scalability of cloud computing, providing NASA researchers with immense computing power ready with the flick of a switch. Back in 2009 federal CIO Vivek Kundra stated that Nebula was an example of the governments ability to “leverage the most innovative technologies.”

Another interesting company that will be discussing the use case of cloud computing is CrowdFlower. CrowdFlower is the largest crowdsourcing company out there and is breaking down barriers in the way the enterprise conducts tasks. The Founder and CEO, Lukas Biewald, will be presenting, not on crowdsourcing’s effect on industry, but on the cloud’s effect on the technology. This case study will highlight cloud computing’s role as the catalyst behind new business models and concepts that will change the way our world sees connectivity, work and productivity.

Leaders in the industry will also be involved, diving deeper into the mechanics and technical operations of the cloud and the security implications it brings about. Market leaders such as Rackspace, AT&T, Unisys and Akamai will all be included in the discussion.

To give the conference a little spark for industry professionals looking for an exciting cloud meet up, The Cloud Control Conference is co-located with the popular Green Data Center series. GDCON covers energy efficiency technologies in the data center, and will highlight leading facilities experts discussing the importance of reducing the carbon footprint of our computing centers. The educational overtones and options available at both conferences give delegates something to grab hold, take back to their organization and begin feeling the impact of cost and energy savings.

The Cloud Control Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Hilton Boston Logan Hotel and Conference Center on July 19, 20 and 21, 2011. Visit for more information or to register for the event.
