The Cloud3 Crowd: Photos from Xconomy’s Cloud Computing Forum

Xconomy’s Cloud3 Forum on December 10 attracted a capacity crowd of more than 200 people—and now we’ve got the photos to prove it!

We used the morning event, which was hosted by Microsoft, to hash out some of the stickiest issues around cloud computing, such as cost and security, and to bring the audience up to speed on cloud-related offerings from big local players like EMC, Akamai, and Iron Mountain as well as emerging startups like Pixily, Sonian, and Litl. If you missed the event—or if you were there, and you’d just like to relive it—the pictures and captions on the following pages will walk you through the main points made by all of our keynote speakers and “Cloudburst” presenters. We’ve also got some great candid shots of Cloud3 audience members and “unpanel” participants.

All of our photos were taken by Alexis Hauk, a blog editor at Vernacular who is graduating this month with a master’s degree in publishing and writing from Emerson College and has been doing a bit of freelance work for Xconomy. We’d like to thank Alexis and everyone else who helped to make the Cloud3 a big success. We’ve published the speaker presentations from Cloud3, if you want to check those out. And we look forward to seeing you at Xconomy’s next round of networking forums in 2010, including the Battle of the Tech Bands 3 in February and a big mobile computing event in March.
