CloudPassage to Speak on Cloud Security at RSA Conference 2014 and AGC Partner's Annual Information Security & Technology Growth Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- CloudPassage, the leader in Software Defined Security (SDSec) and creator of Halo, today announced that CEO and co-founder Carson Sweet will discuss cloud security in the wake of Edward Snowden at AGC Partners' 10th Annual Information Security & Technology Growth Conference on Monday, February 24. Later that week at RSA Conference 2014, CloudPassage's Senior Director of DevOps Andrew Storms and Eric Hoffmann, Director of QA, will both lead a discussion on building a model for shared responsibility between security and DevOps teams.

In his panel discussion, Sweet will discuss the security challenges and considerations for hosting data in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. As businesses migrate to cloud environments at a rapid pace, many struggle to understand the different regulatory and legal requirements that come with hosting data outside of their organization as well as what is needed to retain more control of their data in the cloud.

At AGC Partners' 10th Annual Information Security & Technology Growth Conference:

What: Data Protection in a Cloudy World
When: Monday, February 24, 2014 from 2:15-3:00 p.m.
Where: Westin San Francisco Market Street
Metropolitan III - 2nd Floor
50 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

At RSA Conference 2014, Storms and Hoffman will discuss how the self-service and on-demand nature of the cloud allows developers to work fast -- faster than security operations teams can keep up. Security professionals are tasked with ensuring compliance without slowing down their increasingly agile DevOps teams.

At RSA Conference 2014:

What: Secure Cloud Development Resources with DevOps
When: Friday, February 28, 2014 at 9:00am
Where: San Francisco Moscone Center West Room 2002

@DevOpsSummit Stories
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
