Cloud Expo Announces CloudStorm @CloudExpo To Be Held April 19, 2010

At CloudStorm, you will receive in 100 minutes an update of the latest trends and products in Cloud Computing

The latest Special Event to be announced in conjunction with next month's Cloud Expo in New York, of the several that are being held in conjunction with the main Conference & Expo, is CloudStorm - an event that is well known in Europe but has not yet held an event across the Atlantic.

The idea with CloudStorm, as the name suggests, is that participants receive in just 100 minutes a whirlwind update of the latest trends and products in Cloud Computing, based on "lightning talks" of just five minutes for each vendor. It is being held on April 19, 2010, the morning before Cloud Expo proper opens its doors.

"CloudStorm is an event where the real products are shown," says Arvid Fossen, the Belgian behind bringing CloudStorm to New York City and the collaboration with 5th Cloud Expo.

"To make it interesting for everybody, our two-hour April 19 event will feature only one vendor in each cloud type solution. This ensures a much broader view and allows attendees to select the technology solution that best suits your needs!"

It has so far enjoyed three successful editions in London, Paris and Brussels, Fossen (pictured above) notes. But CloudStorm @ Cloud Expo marks its debut outside of Europe.

After CloudStorm, participant can continue directly to the opening keynote of Cloud Computing Expo.

Registering with CloudStorm is free, but seats are limited, so don't hesitate and Register NOW!

CloudStorm will run from 10:00AM - 12 noon on Monday, 19th April and includes:

    * 5-minute Cloud Vendor presentations on the newest trends in Cloud Computing
    * Showing the real solutions and products
    * An optimal mix of vendors: Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Platform, Load Balancers, etc.
    * Drinks and light snacks during and after the presentations
    * Networking, the key to this pre-Conference special event!

    * Marty Gauvin, President & CEO, Virtual Ark
    * Wim De Wispelaere, Sales & Products, Amplidata
    * Arvid Fossen, Product Management Director, A-Server
    * Clinton Gatewood, VP Corporate Development, Zenith Infotech
