Cloud Slam Event - CS '10 virtual Cloud Computing conference

I am interested in going to Cloud Slam in April 19-23 - a virtual Cloud Computing conference. See www.cloudslamevent.com

Did anyone attend a virtual conference before? I liked that besides presentations they are planning to offer hands on labs. Seem to have strong keynote speakers as well.

I saw on HPCwire.com a link to a special admission ticket. http://www.cloudslamevent.com/cloud-slam-10-admission-ticket-hpcwire-special

I did not see Teradata submitting an abstract.

The official website for the event is located at http://cloudslam10.com

Re: Cloud Slam Event - CS '10 virtual Cloud Computing conference

Yes - I saw cloudslam10. But it seems like it is not listing any keynote speakers, no sponsors, and does not offer hands on labs. It might be that this is a old website.

Modern computing in the age of the Internet is quite a strange, remarkable thing. As you sit hunched over your laptop at home watching a YouTube video or using a search engine, you’re actually plugging into the collective power of thousands of computers that serve all this information to you from far-away rooms distributed around the world. It’s almost like having a massive supercomputer at your beck and call, thanks to the Internet.
This phenomenon is what we typically refer to as cloud computing. We now read the news, listen to music, shop, watch TV shows and store our files on the web. Some of us live in cities in which nearly every museum, bank, and government office has a website. The end result? We spend less time in lines or on the phone, as these websites allow us to do things like pay bills and make reservations. The movement of many of our daily tasks online enables us to live more fully in the real world.
Cloud computing offers other benefits as well. Not too long ago, many of us worried about losing our documents, photos and files if something bad happened to our computers, like a virus or a hardware malfunction. Today, our data is migrating beyond the boundaries of our personal computers. Instead, we’re moving our data online into “the cloud”. If you upload your photos, store critical files online and use a web-based email service like Gmail or Yahoo! Mail, an 18-wheel truck could run over your laptop and all your data would still safely reside on the web, accessible from any Internet-connected computer, anywhere in the world.
Very simply stated, cloud computing is the delivery of a service or a capability over the network. More specifically, cloud computing refers to IT resources and services that are abstracted from the underlying infrastructure and are provided "on demand" and "at scale" in a multitenant environment.
Cloud computing fundamentally changes the way IT services are delivered. Organizations can employ cloud computing to meet their IT requirements using a flexible, on demand, and rapidly scalable model that requires neither ownership on their part, nor provision of dedicated resources, leanr more http://cloudcomputing-vision.com
