HONG KONG, Dec. 7 — With over 500 attendees through the doors, all involved are celebrating the outstanding success of last week's Cloud Computing World Forum Asia.
The two day event took place on the 30th November and 1st December in the Mira Hotel in Hong Kong. It was the second year the event has been held and attendees came from far and wide to hear case studies from leading speakers and the latest offerings from the leading companies present.
The widely-recognised forum and expo featured another comprehensive conference agenda focusing on cloud computing and software-as-a-service, with leading suppliers, integrators and end-users all taking part. A fantastic speaker line-up included Google, Amazon, Government of Hong Kong and Experis, to name a few.
Sponsors included, but not exhausted, Cisco, NEC, IBM, Oracle, OnApp, Akamai, Intel, NTT Communications, Internap, DYXnet and Emailvision. Five lucky winners walked away with a brand new iPad 2, after submitting their name badge into the prize draw available for all attendees through the door.
The Cloud Computing World Series now moves on to Dubai, for the second installment of the eagerly-anticipated Cloud Computing World Forum Middle East and North Africa, taking place on the 28-29th February at the prestigious Address Hotel, Dubai.

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
