"Cloud computing definitely plays a role in several aspects of Big Data's growing popularity," observed Dr. William L. Bain, founder and CEO of ScaleOut Software, Inc., in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan. "For example," Bain continued, "there are many use cases where very large datasets are analyzed on a project basis (rather than recurring analysis). In these cases cloud computing is an important enabler because a large grid can be efficiently provisioned, used for the project, and then released."

Navajo Systems to Present at Cloud Expo East

Navajo Systems Session at Cloud Expo Data security is the leading factor hindering SaaS adoption by enterprises. This session describes a unique method of protecting sensitive enterprise data in SaaS environments, eliminating SaaS-related data security and regulatory concerns.

In his session at the 5th International Cloud Expo, Dan Gross, co-founder of Navajo Systems, will discuss how sensitive data is stored and processed by the SaaS provider's servers in an encrypted state. End users are unaware of this process, yet their data is completely unreadable (and therefore meaningless) when stored at the SaaS provider: database theft and identity theft become harmless, and regulat...

In his session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Jason Bloomberg, Managing Partner and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Architecture advisory firm ZapThink LLC, will outline the primary issues an EA must consider in order to make appropriate decisions about various cloud-based options, how to put together a cloud roadmap, and how best to communicate the position the cloud should take in the greater context of agile enterprise architect...
