Cloud Standards: What They Are, Why You Should Care
Thursday, February 13, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

Since the initial publication of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) definition of cloud computing in 2011, international standards development organizations (SDOs) have sought to refine and expand the cloud computing landscape. This webinar will:

  • Identify key published and draft cloud standards
  • Discuss their interdependencies
  • Highlight their importance
  • Identify potential future work.

In addition, related technologies such as virtualization, federation, and fog/edge computing will be addressed. Lastly, the relevance of the standards will be explored to help organizations understand ways these documents can be exploited.

QUIC – Will it Replace TCP/IP?
Thursday, April 2, 2020
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

QUIC is a new UDP-based transport protocol for the Internet, and specifically, the web. Originally designed and deployed by Google, it already makes up 35% of Google's egress traffic, which corresponds to about 7% of all Internet traffic. The strong interest by many other large Internet players in the ongoing IETF standardization of QUIC is likely to lead to an even greater deployment in the near future. This talk will highlight:

  • Unique design aspects of QUIC
  • Differences to the conventional HTTP/TLS/TCP web stack
  • Early performance numbers
  • Potential side effects of a broader deployment of QUIC
