Aliso Viejo, California – (The Hosting News) – January 30, 2008 – Utility and grid computing solutions firm, 3Tera, Inc., presented a discussion on the Impact of Utility Computing on new the Web 2.0, at the Technosium 2008 Global Conference and Expo, with Senior VP Product Management, Bert Armijo.
The 2008 Technosium Global Conference and Expo, which took place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, is an international Information Technology and Wireless and Mobile Broadband Telecommunications conference and expo for technology professionals from all around the world. The speaking session was entitled, ”Utility computing – Tapping a new resource to power your Web applications.”
The speaking session examined the fact that while the biggest value in new Web 2.0 applications is functionality, deploying and operating applications on fixed infrastructure is becoming prohibitively expensive. Power costs are skyrocketing, servers depreciate before they’re plugged in, and skilled operators are in short supply. The presentation discussed and demonstrated a new architectural model for running and scaling Web 2.0 applications without breaking the bank – utility computing.
An annual Mega-Event in Silicon Valley, Technosium’s goal is to bring IT companies and end-users closer, face-to-face and open all the possibilities to discuss products, solutions, the latest technologies and business opportunities. With more than 150 vendors participating at Technosium 2008, this educational and networking event is for the corporate market, public sector, technology professionals and the venture capital community.
