Has anything worthwhile come about as a direct result of these conferences ?
Nah, it was very meh and every talk could be summed up as "The industry is moving towards cloud so here is my sales pitch on how amazing we are why you should buy our solutions."

The only exception to this was Dominic White's "security in the cloud" talk.

No one actually addressed any actual "Cloud" stuff like:
- How cloud is empowering the largest DDoS attacks in the world.
- How a new world has opened up to the business of distributed Cloud DDoS solutions like Incapula.
- Cloud hosting speed vs capacity (SSD vs traditional storage).
- Why VMware shouldn't be used in the public cloud market but is the perfect solution in the private cloud market.
- The rise of cloud DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service).
- Why traditional SAN storage is dying and why distributed disk storage like storpool, solidfire and ScaleIO is the way of the future.


There were so many more things that could have been discussed other than a glorified sales pitch.

Went and started reading up on those topics, thanks.
