About the International Engineering Consortium
In 1944, the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) was founded as a nonprofit organization sponsored by universities and engineering societies, dedicated to continuing education for the U.S. electronics industry.

The Consortium established its reputation as a catalyst for industry-academic collaboration through the National Electronics Conference, a program launched in 1945 that continued through the 1960s and into the early '70s, addressing the needs of the broad-based electronics industry.  The dramatic development of information and communications technologies (ICT) during the last decades of the 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st were supported by IEC programs in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.  Most recently, the Consortium has produced programs for the electric utility industry supporting grid modernization and smart grid deployment.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
