Defrag X Conference

Defrag is the confernece for developers, and Cloudsoft is happy to be one of the Platinum sponsors. We will be heading back to the Omni Interlocken Resort close to Denver, Colorado on November 16th & 17th to attend. 

When Defrag started ten years ago in 2007, cloud computing was in its infancy, APIs were little known outside of a few engineers, and the Internet of Things, drones and robotics were the things of science fiction.

As we move toward the 10th anniversary edition of Defrag, we’re returning to our roots: developers. With sessions grounded in APIs, DevOps, the cloud, IoT and analytics, we’ll continue to expand on the themes emerging around the intersection of technology with society, government, education, healthcare and commerce. And Cloudsoft couldn't be happier to be a part of it. 

The Defrag X Confernece keynote on November 17th at 9:00-9:30am will be given by Cloudsoft's CEO Duncan Johnston-Watt and Software Engineer Mike Zaccardo on Deploying and Managing a Global Blockchain Network.

Blockchain technology has leapt to prominence in the past year notably with the establishment of the open source Hyperledger Project hosted by the Linux Foundation. We examine its potential impact on financial services and asset management. We show how, using the Cloudsoft Application Management Platform, we can rapidly deploy and manage the Hyperledger Fabric running on IBM Blue Box clusters in San Jose, London, and Singapore, creating a geographically distributed Blockchain network.

Stop by our booth where we will be showcasing our work deploying and managing the Hyperledger Fabric using the latest version of Cloudsoft AMP.

About Defrag:

This year, Defrag turns 10 years old. That’s a long-time in the world of tech conferences — very few tech conferences have ever lasted that long (PC Forum, OScon, Interop, etc), so we’re extremely grateful for the community that has formed around the themes we’ve explored at Defrag.

Over the years, those themes have covered everything from “enterprise 2.0,” to APIs to robots to drones to IoT to the intersection of tech and everything (government, medicine, education, manufacturing, etc). So, as I begin to dig in on this year’s agenda, I’ve been thinking a lot about where to take us for the 10 year anniversary.

At the end of the day, everything we’ve explored has come down to developers, and that’s precisely where I’d like to ground this year’s show (while we still explore some more “outside of the box” topics at the keynote level). So, if you’ve got a presentation around containers, serverless architectures, IoT, analytics, DevOps, or really anything that is developer-related.
