I spent this week in Orlando at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo talking about clouds from two perspectives – IT and weather – as we endured a vigorous tropical storm dumping buckets of rain in the area. It certainly brought a whole new meaning to "cloud bursting" this week! Kudos to the Gartner team for pulling together a very impressive show, a great mix between the emerging technology providers and more established companies. I ended up splitting my time between the show floor, where Carpathia had a booth, and attending the main sessions at the event.
