Speaking at CommunityOne 2009

C1W_170x93_Speaking_v2-1.gifOver the past few weeks, Scott Mattoon, John Stanford and I have been documenting infrastructure patterns to help application developers architect for cloud computing environments as part of a larger program around enabling cloud computing for our customers. It's been an interesting project, as cloud computing is both very new, but based on some very old concepts.

On Monday, we will be presenting our work in progress at CommunityOne West in San Francisco's Moscone Center. Around the same time, we hope to move our work into the public view on wikis.sun.com for comments and contributions. I'll post something here as soon as it happens.

Our talk will highlight three sets of pattern domains: provisioning, monitoring and resource administration. You can expect to hear talk of motivations and implementations, with sequence diagrams, architecture pictures and code snippets for illustration.

The Open Group, Beijing Kickoff

I had a great opportunity to revisit China, part of my old region (and now part of my new global responsibility), as part of The Open Group's kickoff last week:
The Open Group, which recently established a franchise in China with Kingdee, is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium, which drives the creation of Boundaryless Information Flow™ that will enable access to integrated information within and between enterprises based on open standards and global interoperability.

That's Allen Brown, President and CEO of the Open Group, giving the open talk. I was there to speak about cloud computing, its challenges and opportunities to enterprise architects. Kingdee and TOG put on a great conference, which was well attended. Maybe I'll go back in October when they have their practitioners conference in Hong Kong. Learn more about the The Open Group Conference - Beijing at their website.
