Cloud Computing 2.0 Innovations Discussed at Cloud Connect

Marketwired

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2013) - ProfitBricks, the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) company that completely reengineered the delivery of cloud computing, will discuss cloud computing 2.0 -- a more flexible, easier to use, and better performing public cloud -- this week during two sessions at Cloud Connect. ProfitBricks is a platinum sponsor and exhibitor at Cloud Connect, the defining event of the cloud computing industry.

WHAT:
Panel: How Far are we from True Cloud IaaS?
WHEN:
April 4, 1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.  
WHERE:
Grand Ballroom G, Santa Clara Convention Center
WHO: 
James Urquhart, vice president of product strategy at Enstratus
Krish Subramanian, principal analyst at Rishidot Research
Sumeet Sabharwal, senior vice president of global delivery at NaviSite
Kenny Li, vice president of business operations at Cloud Spectator
Pete Johnson, senior director of platform evangelism at ProfitBricks
WHY:  
Is cloud computing fulfilling its promise of matching capacity demand? Cloud computing's original promise was about giving users the power to choose how much compute power they needed when they needed it. However, as the biggest cloud computing provider aims to sell into the enterprise it has taken a step back, locking users into set pricing models and instance sizes. The model of cloud computing we were promised has not come to fruition -- have we been duped?

WHAT:
The Cloud is Awesome, But it isn't as Flexible as You Think
WHEN:
April 3, 3:45 p.m. - 4:05 p.m.  
WHERE:
Cloud Solutions Theater, Expo Floor, Santa Clara Convention Center
WHO: 
Pete Johnson, senior director of platform evangelism at ProfitBricks
