Another confirmation that virtualization, cloud computing and service-based application delivery is set to form an integral part of software application development infrastructures in the decade to come is evident from the shape of an IT event in Las Vegas, Nevada, that starts today. Reporting exclusively for SYS-CON's Virtualization Journal, Adrian Bridgwater looks forward to examining real-world integration and implementation of virtualization technologies in this preview of the event. Parallels will be staging its fourth industry summit this week at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from February 2-4, 2009. Over 1300 attendees have flocked into town, despite the economic meltdown, to learn about what we're told will be the key drivers in the next generation of optimized computing.

Can Big Data Save the Earth, or Will ROI Win?

This post is sponsored by The Business Value Exchange and HP Enterprise Services So Big Data is everywhere, well - it is if you believe all the hype.

Well, first the hype-cycle slowed down and we started realizing that hybrid cloud (as a combination of public and private resources) was a relatively sensible idea, i.e., from both an expenditure (public) and security (private) perspective. Now we know which data and processing tasks to put where - and when, right? Not exactly, it's still not all quite crystal clear in cloud is it? The nomenclature, taxonomy and classification of the cloud are all part... (more)

Vene, Vidi, Adobe!

Adobe's MAX 2006 event was held at The Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from the 23rd to the 26th of October - the company's first event of this kind since joining forces with Macromedia. Adobe's focus was directed at highlighting the newest breed of rich applications and what it likes to call "engaging content and experiences" under the ban... (more)
