Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Gale Technologies, a leading provider of cloud management solutions that power Infrastructure as a Service for enterprises, labs, and service providers, announced a keynote at IEEE 8th World Congress on Services (Services 2012) that will be delivered by Dr. Akhil Sahai, vice president of product management at Gale Technologies. Services 2012 is being held June 24th to 29th 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The growing use of private or on-premise cloud deployments is drawing attention to new challenges such as orchestration of physical and virtual resources as well as QoS and multitenancy, said Akhil Sahai, vice president of product management at Gale Technologies. IEEE conferences draw thought leaders from across the globe to define the evolution of technology. I am pleased to be speaking at the keynote about best practices and challenges of service delivery over private and hybrid clouds at Services 2012.

Keynote: Best practices and Challenges of Service Delivery Over Private and Hybrid Clouds, June 29th, 10:15AM – 11:45AM.

Abstract: While Application delivery has become increasingly service-oriented, Data Centers are coalescing around Private and Hybrid Clouds. In addition to the ubiquitous access, favorable economics and ease of use that service delivery over Cloud environments bring, they also lead to lot of challenges that need to be addressed. While virtualization is taking hold in data centers, services being delivered on such Cloud environments often span physical and virtual resources and are increasingly federated. Delivering tiered services with QoS and managing them over their life-cycle on top of such heterogeneous, multitenant and federated environments pose new set of issues. In this presentation, we will explore challenges, economic considerations and best practices to address service-delivery over cloud environments.
