Your boss heard that “the cloud” was going to save the company money and “make IT easy”. You heard that you might lose your job because of the cloud. Every vendor that walks in your door is trying to sell you a cloud solution. With vendors putting the “cloud” label on everything, how can you tell what is fact and what is fiction?

You attend this session is what you do.  And who better to help you than Cloud expert David Davis.

Microsoft says that the cloud edits family photos, but what does that have to do with Azure? VMware offers vCloud datacenters, vCloud express, and wants you to build your “private cloud”. Amazon tries to sell you books and EC2 web services. But none of these are an apples to apples comparison.  Learn how to cut through the marketing-hype and discover how cloud computing really can help your everyday life. David covers VMware’s vCloud offerings, vCloud partners, and then gives you the low-down on the competition in this real-world session.
