IaaS Doesn't Cut It for IoT: Designing IoT-as-a-Service
Designing IoT applications is complex, but deploying them in a scalable
fashion is even more complex. A scalable, API first IaaS cloud is a good
start, but in order to understand the various components specific to
deploying IoT applications, one needs to understand the architecture of these
applications and figure out how to scale these components independently.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nara Rajagopalan is CEO of Accelerite, will
discuss the fundamental architecture of IoT applications, and the various
components that the cloud needs to support in order to make IoT as a Service

Container Security Compliance for Financial Services
Many banks and financial institutions are experimenting with containers in
development environments, but when will they move into production? Containers
are seen as the key to achieving the ultimate in information technology
flexibility and agility. Containers work on both public and private clouds,
and make it easy to build and deploy applications.
The challenge for regulated industries is the cost and complexity of
container security compliance. VM security compliance is already challenging,
and containers increase the probl... (more)
Architecting for the Cloud with Cloud Foundry and Docker on Bluemix
As the world moves towards more DevOps and Microservices, application
deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices
architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as
OpenStack and NetFlix, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete
developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and
supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, an
Architect/Developer Evangelist at IBM, will discuss th... (more)
Scaling Massive Enterprise Content Stores in the Cloud
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new
cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible
for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of
Alfresco, will describe how to scale cloud-based content management
repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related
information with fast and linear scalability.
He will address the challenges of scali... (more)
The IoT Is a Mess: That's the Good News!
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables,
Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids,
Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards
every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an
entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger
Strukhoff, panelists will discuss the vast toolbox of options being offered
and how indi... (more)
