Hitachi launches virtual conference on cloud computing

10 Dec 09

Making sure the industry has got the facts on cloud computing clear is the goal of a new virtual conference launched by Hitachi Data Systems Corporation.
The conference, which targets resellers, C-level executives and IT managers, will be operational for four months and includes interactive presentations by technical experts at Hitachi Data Systems, details on how cloud computing can lower costs, case studies and product demonstrations.
Hitachi is promoting the conference via a video competition on Facebook entitled ‘Sharing Cloud Innovation’.
The conference is available throughout the Asia/Pacific region.
Neville Vincent, Chief Executive, Hitachi Data Systems Australia and New Zealand, says the conference will help keep the channel informed.
“New Zealand resellers can review the conference materials to better understand how technologies provide essential security, reliability and multi-tenancy for cloud infrastructures, in order for them to help organisations adopt cloud services at their own pace.”
Resellers who register for the conference can also leave questions, comments or messages on every presentation, video and webcast that is part of the virtual conference in order to better understand cloud computing.
With demand for cloud computing building up steam, Vincent says resellers need to keep up to date.
“Hitachi is seeing a strong uptake in cloud enabling infrastructure solutions,” he says. “Coupled with the fact that there is an ongoing challenge of ever-growing unstructured data, resellers can attend the virtual conference to find out more about the role of integrated and open storage technologies evolving in cloud computing today.”
