Flexiant, the pioneering cloud software and services company, revealed today it will exhibit at Cloud Connect, the premier technology event for cloud computing, this week in Santa Clara, California.
This news follows Flexiant’s long anticipated entry into the US market during the last quarter of 2010. Flexiant, headquartered in Scotland, developed Europe’s first cloud platform in 2007 and is one of only a handful of independent cloud platform providers world wide.
The company will showcase its flagship product, Extility, a licensed virtualised cloud platform, at Cloud Connect. Extility helps companies reduce start up costs, capital expenditure and energy consumption, while slashing operating costs and significantly shrinking carbon footprint.
In addition to a range of other enterprise deployments, Extility, is currently being used as a test bed by the European Commission on three multi-million pound FP7 research and development projects aimed at driving forward the adoption of cloud computing across Europe.
Robert Karssiens, Director of Sales and Marketing comments: “As growth of the cloud computing market accelerates rapidly, Cloud Connect is a forum where we can continue to shape the direction of the industry. Flexiant is one of the early pioneers of cloud computing in Europe and is now sharply focused on the US, a key market in our aggressive growth strategy.”
The lineup at Cloud Connect features some of the top minds in cloud computing, people defining cloud computing today as well as the companies leveraging the cloud to drive their business objectives.
Produced by UBM TechWeb, Cloud Connect is the defining event of the cloud computing industry. As both a conference and an exhibition, Cloud Connect’s goal is to chart the course of cloud computing’s development by bringing together enterprise IT professionals, developers, infrastructure providers and cloud computing innovators.
Cloud computing is changing the way companies look at how they address cost, scalability and the models that underpin successful software and hardware companies. A recent report predicts that by 2012, 80% of Fortune 1000 companies will pay for some cloud computing service and 30% percent will pay for cloud computing infrastructure. Gartner, 2010
Cloud Connect will take place March 7-10, 2011 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
