CIO Executive Summit - Seattle, WA
June 7, 2011
Risk Versus Reward in the Cloud - The promise of cloud computing is the opportunity to create an efficient, reliable, and agile infrastructure. Today’s IT infrastructures have become complex and brittle, with nearly 70% of a typical IT budget dedicated to maintenance, leaving few resources to support strategic efforts and innovation. Cloud computing promises focus on higher degrees of automation, flexible delivery mechanisms, and elasticity all designed to deliver computing resources when and where needed without over-provisioning. Corporations and governments alike are working towards delivering IT as a Service.
As is often the case with innovation, questions arise as to how it affects the risk-reward balance. This discussion will focus on the fundamentals of cloud computing and how to ensure it does not sacrifice security, control, or compliance. This presentation shares experiences from early cloud adopters to illustrate the advantages and challenges of different cloud models and the best way to make use of them.

David Hunter, "High Assurance Computing in the Cloud"
The number of devices being connected to the Internet exceeds 1.6 billion and there is no end in sight. This has lead to an increase in complexity and security challenges for organizations. Cloud Computing has emerged as a critical approach to meeting unique missions and mandated requirements. But how do these concepts work in practice? How does an organization begin building the IT service and support delivery mechanisms? And lastly, how can does HAP fit into this scheme. Join VMware for a discussion of its Cloud Directions and offerings along with some thoughts on how the High Assurance Program model will fit into this new computing paradigm.
