MaxiScale Proposed Session: “Got A Scale Out Application? Meet Your New Best Friend” by Gary Orenstein, vice president of technical solutions at MaxiScale
Where: Cloud Connect Conference 2010, Santa Clara Convention Center, Silicon Valley, Calif.
When: March 15-18, 2010
Topic: Cloud applications such as social networks have pushed file sharing and storage limits to the point where archaic, monolithic systems and do-it-yourself approaches practically kill the user experience, while creating challenges for data center and storage architects. In this proposed session, the audience will explore a dynamic approach to the infrastructure needs of modern cloud-scale applications and evaluate new systems available to handle the data demands required by these types of small files.

The Cloud Connect Conference, which brings together the entire cloud eco-system, is an event intended to define and frame cloud computing discussions for business technology executives, IT professionals and developers. TechWeb’s Cloud Connect Launch Pad is a competition that lets software developers, large and small, present their innovative applications—either in development and about to launch, or recently launched—to the Cloud Connect community.
