HP Labs at Discover 2014 – Julio Guijarro to speak on the future of cloud computing


Contributed by Simon Firth, freelance technology journalist




Julio-Guijarro_web.jpgHP recently launched HP Helion, a comprehensive portfolio of cloud products and services designed to help organizations build, manage, and consume workloads in whatever cloud environments serve them best. It features a number of significant new additions to HP’s cloud catalog, many of which started life at HP Labs.


“But that’s just the start,” says HP Labs cloud researcher Julio Guijarro. “The cloud is the result of a ‘radical simplification’ of IT and there’s plenty more that we can and should do to push that simplification further.”


Guijarro will outline his vision of how today’s already simplified IT ecosystems might evolve in a talk at HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas on June 10th. 


The session will first explore the near-term future, looking at unresolved cloud challenges in areas such as scale, connectivity, security, privacy, and accountability – and profiling HP Labs research projects that are addressing them. A number of these projects, such as a brand new service Guijarro will profile that enables true hybrid cloud management for complex workloads, are already finding their way into the HP Helion portfolio and will be demoed elsewhere at Discover.


In the longer term, Guijarro believes, trends in cloud computing point to a need for a fundamentally new style of IT that can only be built on a fundamentally new infrastructure.


“The growth that we are seeing in connected devices and the data they generate is just more than today’s server architecture can handle,” he argues. “So I’ll also be reviewing the work we’re doing at HP Labs to address this longer-term goal: developing special-purpose CPUs and massive memory pools, as well as new photonic technologies that will connect them, and then rethinking how software works to get the most out of these new hardware devices.” 


Discover attendees can attend Guijarro’s talk on June 10th, from 1:45 to 2:15 PM in the Discover Theater.
