Interop Las Vega can be boiled down to a single topic - cloud computing. Lots of variations such as cloud security, cloud provisioning, cloud storage, cloud everything. And SoCal companies were right in the center of attention.
Monday kicked off with the Enterprise Cloud Summit, which attracted nearly 300 attendees. The speaker lineup was pretty impressive, with the focus on introducing the cloud concept and opportunity to business and enterprise users. The conference also sponsored "Cloud Camp," which was a highly interactive training seminar for cloud students which ran well into the night.
Some very good speeches and presentations on the topic. Two Southern California companies kept coming up in the presentations and discussions as being both thought leaders, as well as powerful factors within the cloud industry.
