Mezeo Software Executive at Cloud Computing Panel

Will compare and contrast cloud storage opportunities vs. traditional storage

Mezeo Software Corp. (www.mezeo.com) the leading provider of a deployable platform for cloud storage, today announced that Bill Pitts, senior vice president of Worldwide Sales, will participate in a panel discussion at the Hosting Transformation Summit Europe in London, England. The panel, "Storage Opportunities: Cloud vs. Conventional," will examine cloud storage, the fastest-growing segment of the cloud computing market.

Organized by Tier 1 Research, the Hosting Transformation Summit Europe is the premier forum for executives in the hosting, datacenter and Internet infrastructure sectors. It focuses on the economics of the hosting market and how a hosting, datacenter or Internet application provider can position itself to succeed.

"Traditional SAN- and NAS-based storage capacity continues to expand, but users want different capabilities they simply cannot provide," said Pitts, who leads Mezeo's global sales, field operations and partner programs. "Because of this, cloud storage is rapidly becoming mainstream. It is quickly gaining acceptance and adoption both from users and service providers. In addition to keeping IT Service Providers relevant in their industry, cloud storage allows them to offer new capabilities to their existing customers and to expand their market reach with these same services. We strongly recommend that those Service Providers who are still on the fence take a good hard look at how they can get into this market and do so fast.",

The Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform® with Web services APIs enables IT service providers to immediately enter the cloud storage market with their own branded cloud storage solution. Built upon the platform, Mezeo offers four distinct solutions including Cloud  Storage with Web services APIs, Access Cloud, SaaS Cloud and Personal Cloud Storage.

The panel is scheduled for 11:40 a.m. on June, 2, 2009. It will be moderated by Simon Robinson, research director, Storage with the 451 Group. Joining Pitts will be the CEO of ParaScale and co-founder of Nirvanix.  It will be held at the Hilton Tower Bridge in London. For more information, visit  http://www.hsvsummit.com/eu/2009/.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots. Managing financial information on spreadsheets and piecing together insight from numerous disconnected systems is no longer an option. Rapid market changes and aggressive competition are motivating business leaders to reevaluate legacy technology investments in search of modern technologies to achieve greater agility, reduced costs and organizational efficiencies. In this session, learn how today's business leaders are managing finance in the cloud and the essential steps required to get on the right path to creating an agile, efficient and future-ready business.
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
