    * Fireside Chat with Jason Waxman, Intel's GM, High Density Computing, Data Center Group: Thursday, June 23, 2:30 PM (moderated by Joyent Co-Founder and CTO Jason Hoffman) on "Open Clouds: Can Anyone Agree?"

    Last year at Structure, Jason Waxman, Intel’s GM for High Density Computing, made the case for why Cloud Computing needs interoperability and standards. Over the past year, Intel helped to launch the Open Data Center Alliance and participated in numerous industry initiatives including Open Stack, Open Compute Project, Deltacloud, the DMTF’s cloud incubator just to name a few. Hear Jason talk about whether the industry is making progress or just further fragmenting, what are the top challenges that need to be addressed, and with all of these “open” projects, what the implications are for vendors and service providers.
















    * Intel Workshop - Building Clouds: Real World Lessons from Intel Cloud Builder program and IT@Intel, Wednesday, June 22, 9:50 am


    Intel Cloud Builders is helping enterprises and service providers build more simplified, secure, and efficient cloud infrastructures. Additionally, Intel’s own IT department - with about 75,000 servers worldwide – is transforming its enterprise environment from a traditional infrastructure to a cloud-based service. Learn real-world lessons from the Intel Cloud Builders program and Intel IT that you can apply to your cloud deployments.

    • Sponsored Speaking Session: Wednesday, May 11, 10:15am – 11:00am, Location: Mandalay Bay L
      Iddo Kadim, “Realizing Benefits of End-to-End Platform Security”


    • During Iddo's session, one topic he covered was how Intel TXT can enable secure, interoperable private and public clouds. To learn more, listen to industry experts from Terremark, RSA, Hytrust and Cisco talk about Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT) and its implications in the Cloud Computing space specific to the "trusted cloud."






    • At the show, we also had demos about:




    • Using one-time password authentization with Intel Cloud Access 360 from a PC or smartphone to a public cloud service:



    • Single sign-on between internal directories (like active directory) with public cloud services (Google Apps, with Intel Cloud Access 360:












    Additionally, on May 9th, Intel announced availability of Intel® Expressway Cloud Access 360 and Intel® Expressway Service Gateway as modules in the McAfee Cloud Security Platform. The unified platform provides identity and access control and protects the content during transit to and from the cloud - securing email, web, and web services traffic. Modular by design, and connected to the McAfee’s Global Threat Intelligence Network, the platform delivers consistent security policies and reporting for cloud traffic from the Enterprise to private and public clouds ... now available from a single platform.



    Intel at Cloud Connect - March 7-10, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA

    At this event, Intel was a Diamond Sponsor. On March 8th, Intel also announced the Intel® Expressway Cloud Access 360 at Cloud Connect.


    Leading Intel partners at the event talked about how they are using Intel Cloud Access 360 for single sign-on among applications in the public cloud (such as Google apps, to directories within the firewall (like Active Directory).









    Additionally, Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA)'s Chairman Marvin Wheeler gave a keynote at the event and addressed how this organization, which consists of enterprises with a combined IT spend of more than $50B, is developping use case cloud requirements for vendors. (Disclosure: Intel is a technical advisor to the ODCA.)  Click on the link to watch his speech if you missed it.

    Intel Events in 2011 - Discussing What's New About Intel's Efforts with Cloud Computing


    Last year in October of 2010, Intel outlined three key elements to its “Cloud 2015” vision: a world of interoperable “federated” clouds; “automated” movement of software applications and resources; and PC and device-savvy “client-aware” clouds that know what processing should take place in the cloud or on your laptop, smartphone or other device. As Intel helps develp this “Cloud 2015” vision, we are aiming to make cloud-based Internet computing more interoperable, secure and simplified.


    To learn more about how Intel is driving cloud computing in 2011, we will be at the following events throughout the year:

    • Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit, Nov. 28-Dec 1, Las Vegas, NV
    • Gartner Data Center Summit, Dec 5-8, Las Vegas, NV


    Part of what we will be discussing at each event are the following:

    • Intel® Cloud Builders, which features the world’s leading hardware and software makers who will commit resources to spur innovation and make clouds easier to deploy, use and share.
    • New Intel hardware and software products and associated technologies for cloud computing. For instance, Intel® Xeon® processors includes features such as smart energy efficiency, Intel® Virtualization Technology and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology that are perfectly suited for cloud computing.  See Intel demos and learn more about these products at the above events.
    • We would love to hear from you and understand what you would like to see from Intel before each event.  Please provide comments so that we can best help while at each show.
