The Physical Infrastructure of Cloud Computing

Hal Stern, Now with Oracle, to Present at Cloud Expo in New York

Hal Stern Session at Cloud Expo

"The cloud promises immediate and limitless scale across all types of applications," writes Dr. Hal Stern, the Sun Distinguished Engineer who is now with Oracle.

Hal will be presenting a session at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. He continues his thought: "This raises practical questions about system utilization, capacity planning and performance issues related to the widespread usage of virtual servers and storage. How will the cloud mitigate requirements for applications needing real-time responsiveness, extreme transaction processing, event processing and continuous availability?"

His session is entitled, "Directions in Physical Infrastructure for the Cloud," and will cover "the experience gained from research and development from Sun Microsystems' cloud program and the new types of systems that must be created to power the new generation of cloud implementations," he writes.

In his more than 13 years with Sun, Hal served as CTO, Sun Services; chief architect of Sun Professional Services; CTO for the Sun ONE (iPlanet) infrastructure products division; and the chief technologist of Sun's Northeast U.S. Sales Area.

He has done architecture, performance, and reliability work for Major League Baseball, mlb.com, several financial information and transaction clearing networks, and defined next-generation interactive services as part of Sun's technology partnership with the National Hockey League.

He is listed as inventor or co-inventor on three networking technology patents and has co-authored technical books on networking and high availability techniques.
