From 1st to 4th of April .САЙТ .ОНЛАЙН were on the biggest global hosting event WHD 2014. Let me introduce you some of the keynotes that we attended.
This year everything was special - celebrating an anniversary! =)
Soeren von Varchmin welcomed the crowd with a quick review of 10 years WHD. Almost no one raised his/her hand when he asked, who had been among the first 150 people and 15 partners during the first get-together in 2004. Ten years later, the WorldHostingDays reached more than 20 000 unique visitors across all global events.
Among the topics were cloud computing, managing datacenters, digital service ecosystem, the “next generation service provider”, data security. On the panel called “PHP and Joomla! taking in to Mars” Mr. Brian Teeman (the co-founder of the leading Open Source CMS, Joomla!) said: “Even from our brand name you can tell, that this is rather about the people behind it with their motivations, not about the product. We have hundreds of thousands of people contributing to Joomla!, all with different passions coming together.”
Of course “new TLDs” were also discussed. Leading topics were new platforms for Resellers, Registrar and Reseller`s Solutions like automated registration and distribution of more than 300 exising gTLD and ccTLD extensions.
Absolute interest became the WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange, who joined the discussion via live satellite broadcast from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, speaking about the freedom of the Internet and what it means for Cloud providers. “We can enforce a better security at any time, but it is much more expensive due to higher computing power required for encryption and decryption. If you want to have a higher level of security, you need to be willing to pay the price for it.” In the end he concluded: “Who is responsible for data security? All of us are. Everyone for themselves. Data security is not a small thing and it’s everyone’s business. But legislation needs to demand higher encryption standards.”
Targeted to the companies from the branch, WHD.global is a great opportunity to find new partners, to meet the old ones, to hear hot news, to be on great name’s lectors sessions. Meanwhile it was a lot fun combining the event with one of the biggest amusement parks in Europe having the chance to feel the Rollercoasters. Next year we will be there again, for sure!
