Citrix Creates Chief Cloud Advocate Role for Top 50 Cloudster Reuven Cohen

Cohen joins other household names in Cloud Computing who now work at Citrix

Reuven Cohen, who in 2004 founded Enomaly to bring to market his vision for an "Elastic Computing Platform" (ECP), has joined Citrix in a newly-formed role: Chief Cloud Advocate.

Cohen joins other household names in Cloud Computing who now work at Citrix such as Sheng Liang and Shannon Williams, founders of Cloud.com in 2008, and open source veteran Mark Hinkle. All four - Cohen, Liang, Williams, and Hinkle - were early, and remain popular, participants in the industry-leading international Cloud Expo® conference series.

In May 2010 he was appointed to the International Advisory Board of Cloud Expo®, along with a roster of Enterprise IT heavyweights such as Peter Coffee (Salesforce), Tom Lounibos (SOASTA), and Siki Giunti (CSC). Cohen is also one of the Top 50 cloudsters featured by Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan in his ongoing "Who's Who in Cloud Computing" series at CloudComputingJournal.com.

Reuven Cohen was interviewed for SYS-CON.TV by Cloud Expo® Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan at 1st Cloud Expo, held in 2008 in San Jose, California.

In December 2011 Enomaly was acquired by Virtustream, where Cohen acted as Sr. Vice President of Community Clouds until this present new appointment.

CloudEXPO Stories
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
