Mountain View Cloud Computing Interoperability Event (Jan 20th)

As some of you may have heard, we (CloudCamp and Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum) are working with Stephen O'Grady of Redmonk and David Berlind of TechWeb to host a Cloud Computing interoperability event in Mountain View, CA on Jan 20th from 10am-3pm, the day before CloudConnect (and unfortunately, the same day as CloudCamp Atlanta). Like previous CCIF events, the purpose is to bring together like minds to discuss issues surrounding Cloud Computing Interoperability. Those of you who found the CCIF event in September useful should attend this event.

The goal of the meeting is for everyone to continue the discussion, identify and compare customer needs to existing assets and technologies and to pragmatically work towards better cloud interoperability. The 1/2 day event will include an opportunity for groups to break out for more focused discussions.

Cloud computing solution providers both big and small are encouraged to join in this exploration of how the industry can pull together to establish better interoperability that ultimately lower the barrier to the adoption of cloud computing, resulting in a rising tide for all.

Also, while this event remains open, we have limited space. So we are limiting attendance to no more than two persons per organization, and to only those organizations who are actively engaged in interoperability issues. Please do not register if your company does not fall into this category.

IMPORTANT: Your registration is not complete until you receive a registration confirmation.

Wall Street Cloud Interoperability Forum

I'd like to also note we're putting on a Wall Street Cloud Interoperability Forum this march and are looking for sponsors and organizers. Please feel free to get involved at

PS. For those of you who are wondering, I will not be able to attend as I will be at home playing the part of a new Dad.
