SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Virtustream, Inc., the leading enterprise class cloud software and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, today announced that company executives will be presenting at VMworld 2013, taking place August 25-29 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. Brian Gracely, vice president of product management, will lead a session on hybrid cloud strategy in NetApp booth #1417 on August 26. Pete Nicoletti, chief information security officer, will examine the present state of cloud security with C.J. Radford, vice president of cloud at Vormetric, in the Exhibit Floor Solution Theater on August 27 and Intel booth #1029 on August 28.
“Enterprise CIOs are increasingly considering hybrid cloud as a viable option for their business needs and requirements, but concerns still exist over compatibility and security,” said Gracely. “We look forward to attending this year’s VMworld to share best practices on how companies can ensure the flexibility, performance and security they require for hybrid cloud deployments.”
Speaking sessions include:
|Topic:||Hybrid Cloud Allows the CIO to Always Say Yes!|
|Speaker:||Brian Gracely, vice president of product management, Virtustream|
|Location:||NetApp in-booth theatre #1417|
|When:||Monday, August 26, at 5:00 p.m.|
|Summary:||Over 75% of CIOs have stated that hybrid cloud is their preferred cloud strategy, but very few have actually deployed this model due to on-going compatibility, security concerns or data management issues. This session will highlight how the Virtustream xStream Hybrid Cloud is able to enable CIOs to say "YES" to every IT project the business needs to succeed.|
|Topic:||Secure and Monitor Sensitive Assets in Your Virtual Infrastructure|
CJ Radford, vice president of cloud, Vormetric
|Location:||Moscone South, Exhibit Floor, Solution Theater|
|Date/Time:||Tuesday, August 27, 3:20-4:00 p.m.|
|Summary:||This session will examine the current state of cloud security, illustrating how companies can effectively monitor their virtual infrastructure to avoid any attacks or mistakes. The audience will take away how to protect sensitive data in VMware infrastructure while enabling enterprises to comply with data privacy regulations, and learn how to maintain segregated controls in multi-tenant environments.|
C.J. Radford, vice president of cloud, Vormetric
|Location:||Intel booth #1029|
|Date/Time:||Wednesday, August 28, at 10:30 a.m.|
|Summary:||On-going compatibility and security concerns are the key challenges that prevent CIOs from developing hybrid cloud strategies. When a hybrid cloud is deployed properly, the mix of CAPEX and OPEX provides CIOs with access to nearly unlimited resources at different prices points, and with consistent levels of security and visibility into projects. This session will outline how to build out a comprehensive cloud strategy using Virtustream’s xStream Hybrid Cloud.|
