JClouds: Anyweight Cloudware for Java by Adrian Cole

Adrian Cole, CEO of Global Cloud Specialists, is the founder of the jclouds project,  an open source and enterprise'-grade cloudware for java. Adrian's 15 year career includes design and implementation of mass automation and deployment products for financial, hosting, and education contexts.



This presentation is about how to connect to cloud storage from java. First, we will overview cloud infrastructure and differentiate this from data grids. Next, will introduce storage providers that are available. Following that, we will discuss the open source project JClouds and the storage api provided (jclouds-s3). Finally, we will have time for questions and general feedback.



The discussion will use examples to emphasize points. We cover storage providers including Amazon S3 and Sun Cloud storage. We introduce jets3t and review the pros and cons between this and jclouds-s3. From an integration perspective, we introduce the infinispan datagrid which uses jclouds to persist data into the cloud.

JBoss Infinispan by Manik Surtani

Manik Surtani, who presented at IJTC 2008, is a core R&D engineer at JBoss, and project lead on Infinispan and JBoss Cache. He has a background in artificial intelligence and neural networks, a field he left behind when he moved from academic circles to the commercial world. Since then, he's been working with Java-related technologies, first for a startup focusing on knowledge management and information exchange, and later for a large London-based consultancy as a tech lead focused on e-commerce applications on large Java EE and peer-to-peer technology. Surtani is a strong proponent of open source development methodologies, ethos, and collaborative processes.


In this talk, Surtani covers Infinispan, the new open source data grid platform, and it's motivations and evolution as a project,  introducing the role of data grids in today's cloud-computing environment. The extreme scalability offered by data grids are powering the greatest and most high-profile of today's applications. Distributed data structures will be discussed in-depth, including strategies of managing and deploying data grids on cloud services such as Amazon AWS by making use of powerful toolkits such as JClouds.
