The Cloud Performance Summit was a HUGE success !

109703.strip The Cloud Performance Summit was a HUGE success !

Well, it looks like my prediction was correct. The Cloud Performance Summit was the place to be yesterday in Santa Clara ! It looks like Adrian Cockcroft, Alistair Croll, Tom Lounibos, Imad Mouline and others put up quite a show ! A bit frustrating for all of us, only able to “follow” the action on Twitter. Better than nothing I guess. I’ve gathered the best tweets from the event.

More action the next few days during Cloud Connect ! If you’re at the event, don’t hesitate to come by booth #515 as we offer a free performance testing of your website!

To answer Tal Broda: “Who’s #winning at the performance summit in #ccevent?” I think it’s safe to say that the whole industry is winning by having these kind of events. Having the best experts in the same room to discuss, share, confront their views can only be seen as a positive step toward better performing application, whether they run in the cloud or not. Or maybe @cloudsheen is winning … icon smile The Cloud Performance Summit was a HUGE success !

Here are the best tweets and a few pictures !

#netflix is 100% #cloud based
