Despite the economy, cloud computing is doing well. Cloud Computing is not just a buzz term; it's already proving itself as the next wave of technology infrastructure.
The 8th International Cloud Expo in New York, NY announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies (see suggested topics below).
Cloud computing helps IT cut infrastructure costs while adding new features and services to grow core businesses. Clouds can help grow margins as costs are cut back but service offerings are expanded.
