HONG KONG, Nov. 20 — Europe's highest attended cloud computing event will head to Hong Kong on November 30th to 1st December, in the form of the 2nd Annual Cloud Computing World Forum Asia with over 500 senior IT decision makers expected.
The 2-day Conference and free-to-attend Expo will take place at The Mira, Hong Kong and will feature over 50 expert speakers and 22 global exhibitors.
Cloud computing is seen as one of the IT industry's biggest disruptive forces, offering businesses of all sizes and in all sectors the opportunity to slash their IT budgets and revolutionize the way they adopt new services.
While there are many benefits on offer from implementing cloud into your organization's IT infrastructure, there are also many associated challenges. The 2nd Cloud Computing World Forum Asia will discuss all of these topics with attendees provided with all the latest information and trends from the IT industry, as well as vital case studies to help outline new cloud business models and deployment strategies.
Speakers confirmed for this event include:
The 2nd day of the event (1st December) will also feature a conference on content delivery. The CDN World Forum Asia will help outline the increasing reliance of adopting content delivery network (CDN) technologies in business, and CDNs importance in assisting the development of cloud computing services.
There will also be a free-to-attend exhibition and workshop programme. To register your place, visit the at http://www.cloudcomputinglive.com/asia/register, call the team on +44 (0)845 519 1230 or email Francesca Hannay at email@example.com
The 2nd Cloud Computing World Forum Asia is part of a worldwide series of events with conferences in London, New York, Brazil, India, Dubai, Africa and New York, for information regarding any of these events, visit www.cloudcomputinglive.com.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
