CloudCamp at OSCON: 5 Topics We’d Like to Discuss

We are thinking of how to get the most out of CloudCamp at OSCON on Monday night as the discussions will be exclusively about open-source and the cloud.

So we decided why not write down some topics that we’d like to explore. These are in no particular order but just generally what we are thinking about. A lot of these questions come from trends and topics of discussion we are seeing on the Web.

Let’s get started:

The Basics

A simple discussion on the different components of the open cloud.

Questions: What is the anatomy of the open cloud? What are its components at the node and system infrastructure level? What are the dynamics of the current market that is affecting its overall structure?

On Azure and Proprietary Systems

A general discussion to explore Windows Azure’s significance and how other proprietary systems are affecting the direction of cloud computing.

Open-Source Database Explosion!

According to Kin Lane, a boom in open-source database offerings is evident in looking at the exhibitor list at OSCON. What’s happening is a disruptive change that the database world has not seen in the past 20 years. What are the dynamics of this trend?

Interoperability: Will It Ever Happen?

Interoperability between service providers can help avoid vendor lock-in. But will interoperability ever happen? Are there any brewing open source standards so data can be easily moved between services? Are standards needed?

On Open-Source SaaS

SaaS services are proliferating. What are the emerging principles of open-source SaaS environments? What will open-source SaaS services look like in the years ahead?

That’s a start. There are any number of discussions to be had at an event like CloudCamp.

I am the local organizer for CloudCamp Portland. Hope you can make it if you are in town. CloudCamp Portland will start on Monday at 7 pm in the Oregon Convention Center. It is free to attend.
