I'm declaring Monday, May 24th, as Cloud Computing Day at DoDIIS. Lieutenant General Richard Zahner, Army Deputy Chief of Staff, G2, seemed to get things going with his video that highlighted the future Army's dependence on "cloud nodes". I also enjoyed the keynote by EMC Corporation Board Chairman, President and CEO Joseph Tucci's "A New Vision of IT: The Private Cloud". As I listed last week, many of the breakout sessions also focused on cloud. In fact, an additional Wednesday session titled "High Assurance Platform (HAP) - The Cloud In Your Pocket" was added.
The highlight of my day was of course the panel where I had the honor of sharing with Teresa Westfall of the NRO and Bob Lozano from Appistry. We had over 100 energized attendees. Thank you all for your interest. As promised, the panel presentations are provided below.
