It's Time to "Think Cloud," According to Amazon Presenter at Cloud Expo

Steve Riley to Discuss Changing Roles and Cloud Economics at Javits Center Event

Amazon Session at Cloud Expo

"Cloud computing radically alters our thinking about IT," says Steve Riley. "Public cloud service providers offer several benefits over in-house data centers, including so-called "private" clouds. Scarcity evaporates as on-demand resources appear infinite, servers morph into disposable horsepower, and backups lose their fragility."

Riley, an evangelist and strategist for Cloud Computing at Amazon Web Services, will be presenting on the topic "How to Think Cloud" at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. His session is scheduled at 5:30pm on Monday, April 19.

"Eliminating the need to own information processing assets helps improve economics by removing requirements of meeting certain guaranteed cash flows to recoup sunk costs," he says. "Security and control remain possible because they now derive not from ownership and location but from contracts, standards, and confidentiality and integrity protection. The system administrator role evolves from server caretaker into one that's more aligned with the dynamics of the business and helps the organization add capacity as business needs dictate."

Riley works to help organizations understand how to integrate their environments with the cloud to extend reach, increase utilization, and respond to rapid business changes. His specialties include information security, compliance, reliability, privacy, and policy. Besides lurking in the Internet's dark alleys and secret passages, he enjoys freely sharing his opinions about the intersection of technology and culture.
