Cloud Computing all over Austria in 2012

After some time of thinking about “To Cloud Compute or not?” focusing on legal and security issues, it seems that we finally arrive at the stage of “Yes, but how?”. For the purpose of gaining insights and discussing with experienced cloud users a number of possibilites exist.

The Austrian Computer Society (OCG) hosts a permanent working group on cloud computing as well as IT Cluster Vienna. Additionally, EuroCloud Austria is regularly organizing events including brunches with some talks and good opportunity to network – the next big one called EuroCloud Day on 23. May 2012.


Cloud Camp is also coming back to Austria – on 4. April 2012 @ Technical University of Vienna (Prechtlsaal) – organized by Ivona Brandic, Mario Meir-Huber and myself. This unconference is a great opportunity for interested people, from students to professionals, to grasp non-marketing experiences.

Also, conferences in Austria are putting a focus on Cloud Computing in 2012 – e.g. the Austrian International Networking Academy Conference 2012 (13 and 14 March @ TGM Vienna) as well as ASQT 2012 (6 and 7 September @ University Klagenfurt). Besides, the 3rd International Conference on Cloud Computing will take place in Vienna on 24 – 26 September 2012.

Another good source to observe cloud computing developments and events in Austria is the well informed CloudUserGroup @ Facebook.
