Assuming that Cloud will reduce costs, increase scalability and make businesses more Agile, the talk will outline the most common mistakes (both legal and technical) that people make in relation to cloud computing and will suggest pragmatic and practical ways of avoiding those pitfalls.

Luke's talk will focus on common technical problems made when implementing cloud technologies: the mismatch between expectations and technical reality. He will cover the cloud as equated to scalability, failure tolerance, virtualisation and agility, discuss the complexities and challenges in each along with some solutions and a case study of how it can be achieved.

A great deal is being said about "cloud forensics", but one has to ask how this is different from "computer centre forensics", a subject which attracts no hype, and just happens. The speaker's thesis is that the fundamental difference is organisational and motivational, rather than technical. However, he will discuss technical approaches to solving this organisational challenge.

The cloud and security research lab have created a G-Cloud demonstrator to articulate HP's vision of the future of cloud services. Our aim is to address the security and management challenges for operating next generation cloud services in large organisations, including government and defence.

The demonstrator transports the visitor to our vision of the world of IT services management in 2015, a world where an open ecosystem of cloud services is well established, and where dealing with security threats is even more critical than today. Governments and enterprise want to benefit from all of the flexibility and efficiency offered by the cloud model, but at the same time be assured that their services are protected against the future highly sophisticated, targeted and fast moving attacks.

Our futuristic concept demonstrator integrates HP Labs technology prototypes, showing the capability to deploy services up and down in a secure private or community cloud, and to deal with attacks.
