I'll start with the best one, since it is the one I will be attending!! The Uptime Institute Symposium 2011 will be in Santa Clara and is focused on The Disrupted Data Center: Cloud, Cost, Capacity and Carbon. Besides the all-star lineup of people presenting at the conference, the case studies will be discussed by the winners of the Green Enterprise IT awards. Since the original hashtag was hijacked I'll post updates to the new #uisymp11. It should be an amazing event. I don't get out to the bay area much, so I will probably also be checking into Foursquare about every 10 feet! :)
Here are just some of the other conferences going on at/around the same time:
- Interop! May 8-12 in Las Vegas. I would love to stop by here and check out Riverbed and the deep packet inspection with Wireshark workshop. It would be pretty amazing to see Vinton Cerf - who is scheduled to talk with Interop founder Dan Lynch in honor of the shows' 25th anniversary. Over 70 product and news announcements are expected during the week.
- EMC World will also be in Vegas May 9-12. Cloud Meets BIG DATA. Hashtag #emcworld
- May 10-12 Internet World in London
- On May 13th in Seattle Microsoft will host the Cloud Intelligence Technology Conference.
- AFCOM'S Asia / Pacific Symposium. May 15-17 in Sydney
- Also in Santa Clara, CA will be the Smart Power Grid Technology Conference. This will be held May 12th and looks to have a number of interesting topics.
- The International Smart Grid Congress Asia 2011 will be held May 10-13 in Beijing.
