@CloudExpo: Press Release

NaviSite EVP and CTO Denis Martin to Speak at Cloud Expo Europe

Martin to discuss requirements for a transaction-capable cloud

NaviSite, Inc., a provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application management services, announced on Wednesday that its Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Denis Martin will present "Tales from the Transactional Cloud" at the Cloud Expo Europe, the 6th International Cloud Expo. Cloud Expo Europe will be held June 21-22, 2010, in Prague, Czech Republic.

One of the inhibitors of wide-scale adoption of ecommerce and other transactional applications is the perception that cloud-based services are not yet transaction-capable. Transaction-based applications require an infrastructure that ensures security, dependability, and the ability to handle large volumes. In addition, e-commerce applications require proven credit card processing capabilities. In his presentation, Mr. Martin will review the requirements of transaction-capable cloud services, including real-time performance and its underlying infrastructure, multi-pronged security, and compliance capabilities that are needed to adhere to compliance standards. He will also present a case study of a company running transaction-based applications in the cloud.

Who: Denis Martin, Executive VP and Chief Technology Officer, NaviSite
What: Tales from the Transactional Cloud
When: Tuesday, June 22, 2:10 pm in Track 2: Cloud Security, Storage & Standards
Where: Prague Hilton Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic
