Yesterday night I attended the 2nd CloudStorm in London <LINK> togther with more than 100 other people interested in Cloud Computing solutions.
The organizers (namely Arvid Fossen from A-Server) have choosen a fantastic location at Allen & Overys offices in the 10th floor, which offered a great view over London, as you can see from the images. The venue was very decent and everything was perfectly arranged.
After a great keynote from Joe Baguley (@JoeBaguley) of Quest Software, serveral 5 to 6 minute talks presented Cloud Computing solutions and described some interesting real world customer scenarios. Following the talks there was a 40 minutes panels, where the audience posed a number of questions to the speaker: Most interest appeared to be the topic of security and how organisations and SME’s could benefit from Cloud offerings. There were a number of questions proving that Cloud Computing is a hot topic and people are starting to discuss benefits and tradeoff with their customers.
Following the panel there was a intesive networking party, including great finger foods and drinks, which offered a perfect framing for interesting discussions between the audience and the speakers, which countinued until around 22:00.
Overall it was great event, and we will continue to attend and contribute to the Cloudstorm events series. Find mor information at the Cloudstorm Homepage www.cloudstorm.org. There you soon will find all the slides from the event.
