First ever CloudCamp Event in EMEA, Brussels on Oct 30th 2008, Are you coming?

CloudCamp

Introduction

CloudCamp was formed in order to provide a common ground for the introduction and advancement of cloud computing. Through a series of local CloudCamp events, attendees can exchange ideas, knowledge and information in a creative and supporting environment, advancing the current state of cloud computing and related technologies. CloudCamp Brussels is the first edition of CloudCamp in mainland Europe, after successful editions in the US and the UK.

As an informal, member-supported gathering, we rely entirely on volunteers to help with meeting content, speakers, meeting locations, equipment and membership recruitment. We also have corporate sponsors that provide financial assistance with venues, software, books, discounts, and other valuable donations. To become a member, simply register for an upcoming event. Anyone may attend a meeting, there are no fees or dues.

Location

Given its international character, its central location and the ease of access, we thought Brussels would be a nice location to host the first European CloudCamp. The Event will be on a boat: Biouel has been converted into a most flexible location for seminars like CloudCamp.

Access:

The Biouel boat is moored at the “Quai des Matériaux – Materialenkaai” in Brussels, near Sainctelette.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
