Peeking into 10 stalls at CeBIT 2011: pics

Summary: The CeBIT 2011 action is over now, with stalls being dismantled in front of the ZDNet Australia team's eyes last night. But while it was alive, it was bustling and full of tech. Take a look at some of the stalls we visited.

    At the NICTA stand, we were shown a cost decision program being developed by the research organisation, which allows the input of various cloud variables — such as when a company would predominately use a cloud infrastructure service, the number of CPUs and virtual machines, the maximum CPU load per virtual machine and the database size. After these variables have been entered, a list of cloud providers and their costs, based on the company's needs, become visible. As prices change, the program will be updated automatically.

    There's one bonus stand: the Australian Retailers Association, which, despite talking loudly in the press about the dangers of online business because the government doesn't charge offshore sites GST, had a stand, too.
