Cyberport Speaker Series – “The Cloud is Open”
Date: 06-11-2012
Time: 14:30 - 16:30
Venue: Room 205 A, Level 2, Block A, Cyberport 4, Hong Kong

Cyberport is excited to bring you the 12th Session of Cyberport Speaker Series – “The Cloud is Open”.  There are many cloud computing services and facets of application development and deployment in the cloud markets.  Understanding the cloud application platforms and the spectrum of cloud services is essential in determining business direction.


OpenStack, the open source project co-founded by Rackspace and NASA, is set to become the biggest industry standard on open cloud today.  The mission of the OpenStack project is to produce the ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform that will meet the needs of public and private clouds regardless of size, by being simple to implement and massively scalable.   While the debate between public, private and hybrid cloud models sees no end yet, the open cloud model has emerged as an industry standard to help cloud computing users evade from proprietary cloud solutions, hence vendor lock-in.  


Mr. Lew Moorman, Rackspace's President from United States, will share with the audience on:

  • The vision on the open cloud model
  • The need for setting the open cloud industry standard
  • The "truth" about vendor lock-in: How the fusion of applications and infrastructure within proprietary cloud environments can trap customers and remove application portability
  • OpenStack – the Open Source Cloud Computing platform
  • Global trends on the open cloud adoption

Don’t miss this valuable chance to learn from the industry renowned expert and enjoy a beautiful waterfront ambience to meet and have engaging conversations with a close circle of peers.
