Consensus 2017

Marriott Marquee New York CIty, NY

May 22 24

We are very happy to announce that we will be attending Consensus 2017 this year in New York City. Cloudsoft will be giving a talk and having a booth presence at Consensus 2017.

Cloudsoft CEO Duncan Johnston-Watt will be giving a talk on Tuesday, May 23 from 1:30pm - 2:00pm based on Hyperledger in Action: Deploying and Managing Global Blockchain Networks.

Cloudsoft is in the vanguard of hybrid cloud application management. In this talk we introduce the key autonomic concepts that underpin the top level Apache Brooklyn project. Cloudsoft originally contributed Brooklyn to the Apache community and it is the foundation for our Cloudsoft Application Management Platform (AMP). We highlight the importance of application management to the Hyperledger project and expand on our collaboration with both the Composer and Cello teams as we look to collectively simplify both the consumption and operation of Blockchain networks. Using AMP we close by demonstrating how we can model then rapidly deploy and manage a Hyperledger Fabric running on a combination of cloud resources spanning San Jose, London, and Tokyo creating a geographically distributed Blockchain network. 

Senior Engineer, Mike Zaccardo as well as Distributed Systems Hacker, Andrew Kennedy will be also in attendance and volunteering at the Hyperledger booth as well as giving demos on Deploying Hyperledger Fabric on Kubernetes with Cloudsoft AMP. The booth number is #20/21, and they are scheduled to be there on Monday, May 22nd from 11:30am – 11:50am and Tuesday, May 23rd from 9:45am - 11:15am.
