World Summit of Cloud Computing: “Enterprise Cloud Computing” work group

To leverage attendees of the World Summit of Cloud Computing, a kick-off meeting of the “Enterprise Cloud Computing” work group will be held near Tel Aviv, Israel on December 3, 2008. The stated goal of this meeting will be to exchange information about best practices, use cases, standardizations, success stories, emerging technologies, and issues in Enterprise Cloud Computing.

This clearly is a grass roots attempt towards creating a framework to facilitate the future global movement towards Cloud Computing. As put by Avner Algom of the Israeli Association of Grid Technologies:

“The rapid growth of this technology will require a trusted source of objective information to enable enterprises to understand the opportunities and risks in this area. An Enterprise Cloud Computing Group can play this role and provide value to both vendors and customers.”

Bob Marcus of the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium is supporting this effort by providing questions on key issues from many enterprise and government representatives. According to Mr. Marcus, current areas of interest to NCOIC members include:

  • Security of applications and data in public Clouds
  • Availability, risk management, and SLAs for public Clouds
  • Interoperability between public Clouds and enterprise systems
  • Management and governance of services across public Clouds and the enterprise
  • Best practices for migrating appropriate applications to Cloud environments
  • Use cases and patterns for Cloud deployments

According to Mr. Algom, he has already receive intent interest from many groups. So far, he is expecting participation from the following organizations:

  • 451 Group
  • Forrester
  • BMC Software
  • Sun
  • Amazon
  • IBM
  • Cohesiveft

By the way, the summit has collected quite an impressive list of speakers, including:

  • Cristophe Bisciglia, Senior Software Engineer, Google
  • Paul Strong, Distinguished Research Scientist, eBay
  • Simone Brunozzi, Web Services Evangelist, Amazon Web Services
