Everyone wants to lower their capital expenditures and increase operational efficiency - it’s a sign of the times. The economy of the past 12 - 18 months has forced all organizations to do more with less and become more efficient. While everyone can identify with the request to do more with less, they can also identify with the overwhelming need to deliver quality. The need to deliver quality is an age-old adage and has many interpretations as to what “quality” actually means. This argument is likely to rage on in perpetuity at an academic level.

I’m proud to announce that representatives from Lockheed Martin, SAIC, and Unisys will join me in a “Tactical Cloud Computing” Panel at SYS-CON’s 1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo in Washington DC on October 6, 2009.
As Technical Chair of this conference, my goal has been to provide useful and actionable information to the conference attendees. While the industry has engaged in a rigorous discussion around “enterprise” cloud computing, information on tactical or deployable cloud computing possibilities has been scarce. To address this, I’ve asked Dataline partners to join me and share their views on this issue.
Tactical Cloud Computing refers to the use of cloud computing technology and techniques for the support of localized and short-lived information access and processing requirements. Use cases could include:
  • “Cloudbursting” to support cyclic data processing requirements
  • Establishing a cloud-based collaboration environment in order to coordinate firefighting resources during a wildfire
  • Virtually binding shipboard IT infrastructures in order to create a battlegroup infrastructure-as-a-service platform
  • Virtually binding land vehicle based servers and storage resources into a battlefield data center
  • Dynamic provisioning of virtual cloud-based servers in order to automate exploitation and dissemination of unmanned air vehicle (UAV) streaming video feeds
  • This discussion panel will explore how defense, homeland security and law enforcement organizations are looking to leverage this new and exciting IT capability.
Please register and join us for this unique opportunity. First 50 registrants are eligible for a VIP pass !!

Dan Jones writes “It has been estimated that Amazon Web Services is provisioning some 50,000 EC2 server instances per day, or more than 18 million per year. But that may not be entirely accurate. A single Amazon Machine Image (the virtual machine) may be launched multiple times as an EC2 instance, thereby indicating that the true number of individual Amazon servers may be lower, perhaps much lower, than 50,000 per day. So, even if it’s out by a factor of 10 that’s still 1.8 million VMs per year. Is that sustainable? By way of comparison, In February of this year, Amazon announced S3 contained 40 billion objects. By August, the number was 64 billion objects. This indicates a growth of 4 billion S3 objects per month, giving a daily growth total of about 133 million new S3 objects per day. How big can the cloud get before it starts to rain?”
