Looks amazing! For those who can’t wait or can’t make it – I found a helpful short video that provides a few criteria and a 2nd that goes in depth to help evaluate the Cloud, regardless of the providers:

A 10 min video with David Chappell on this topic where he covers similar issues such as:
– IaaS vs PaaS
– Private vs Public Cloud
– Applications that are not a great fit for the Cloud and those which are.
– The threat of Public Cloud to IT departments
see: http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/David+Gristwood/Conversations-with-David-Chappell-about-Windows-Azure-and-Cloud-Computing/

For a more in-depth video on his topic which gives a framework of questions to evaluate if you should go to the Cloud and how to assess whether to have a public cloud, a private cloud or a hybrid solution [regardless of who is providing the cloud i.e. Amazon, SalesForce, Windows Azure, etc.] see:

hope that helps,

CN,

Thanks for your links – those are very informative videos. Both are obviously highly MS-centric but the general Cloud principles of are covered in a way that’s easy to follow. It would be interesting to hear from other cloud providers like Amazon etc. also from any DAM vendors who are using Cloud based delivery platforms in a production environment.
