2011 SNIA Cloud Burst Summit

Posted by Samantha Morris

There are a multitude of events dedicated to cloud computing, but where can you go to find out specifically about cloud storage? The 2011 SNIA Cloud Burst Summit educates and offers insight into this fast-growing market segment. The SNIA Cloud Burst Summit is a unique one-day summit that focuses entirely on cloud storage and cloud backup; bringing together end users, cloud storage vendors and cloud providers. Hear from industry luminaries, see live demonstrations, and talk to technology vendors about how to get started with cloud storage.

The audience for the SNIA Cloud Burst Summit includes IT storage professionals and related colleagues who are looking to cloud storage as a solution for their IT environments. The day’s agenda will include presentations from cloud industry experts, the latest cloud development panel discussions, and a cocktail networking opportunity in the evening.

Asigra’s Ashar Baig, Sr. Director of Strategic Alliances will be in attendance at this year’s summit.  Ashar is the Chairman of the of the SNIA’s Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) Special Interest Group (SIG), leading the group’s effort in educating the marketplace about the benefits of cloud backup through use cases and defining requirements for standards that are a part of SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiatives (CSI).         

Ashar will also be speaking about Cloud-Powered Virtual Disaster Recovery. In case of a disaster, most organizations may not have new hardware immediately available to restore data that they backed up off site. In this scenario, Virtual Disaster Recovery (VDR) is a lifesaver.

That's not a cloud. A cloud

That's not a cloud. A cloud is a visible mass of liquid droplets or frozen crystals made of water and/or various chemicals suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of a planetary body. They are also known as aerosols. Clouds in Earth's atmosphere are studied in the nephology or cloud physics branch of meteorology. Two processes, possibly acting together, can lead to air's becoming saturated: cooling the air or adding water vapor to the air. In general, precipitation will fall to the surface; an exception is virga, which evaporates before reaching the surface. Clouds can show convective development like cumulus, appear in layered sheets such as stratus, or take the form of thin fibrous wisps, as in the case of cirrus. Prefixes are used in connection with clouds: strato for low cumuliform-category clouds that show some stratiform characteristics, nimbo for thick stratiform clouds that can produce moderate to heavy precipitation, alto for middle clouds, and cirro for high clouds. Whether or not a cloud is low, middle, or high, level depends on how far above the ground its base forms. Cloud types with significant vertical extent can form in the low or middle ranges depending on the moisture content of the air. Clouds in the troposphere have Latin names due to the popular adaptation of Luke Howard's cloud categorization system, which began to spread in popularity during December 1802. Synoptic surface weather observations use code numbers for the types of tropospheric cloud visible at each scheduled observation time based on the height and physical appearance of the clouds. While a majority of clouds form in Earth's troposphere, there are occasions where clouds in the stratosphere and mesosphere are observed. Clouds have been observed on other planets and moons within the Solar System, but, due to their different temperature characteristics, they are composed of other substances such as methane, ammonia, and sulfuric acid.

Very Funny! :P We hope that

Very Funny! :P

We hope that you will attend the event this year this year, either in person of via live-stream!
