RALEIGH, NC, August 13, 2010 (Press-News.org) Last year, the cloud cognoscenti set out to clarify definitions. What is cloud? What isn't cloud? What does it mean for the present and the future? This year, the focus is on adoption patterns and entry points—where enterprises are making use of cloud, finding value and gaining traction with their initiatives.
In an upcoming online panel discussion sponsored by rPath, an innovator in automating system deployment and maintenance, hear from some of the leading cloud thought leaders and practitioners on the paths and patterns surrounding enterprise cloud. The discussion will be moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions and ZDNet blogger.
