In a recent ebizQ article, Dipto Chakravarty, General Manager, Cloud Security & VP WW Engineering for Novell says,
“Depending upon whom you talk to, Cloud Computing is either an overhyped term destined for obscurity or the greatest promise for the future of Information Technology. While certainly there is a great deal of fanfare associated with the Cloud, we believe that in the long run, this hype will prove to be well deserved. For those with a mandate to develop IT strategies or protect an organization’s information assets, you have an obligation to adopt Cloud Computing carefully.”
This is why you should join Novell at Interop 2010, April 25 to 29 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas to get a closer look at the underlying architecture of its cloud management and security solutions. Visit booth #651 for free stuff and the following:
Special Preview: Novell Cloud Manager – available later this year, Novell Cloud Manager will deliver on the promise of utility computing by giving IT organizations the ability to deploy IT services in the cloud using an on demand model.
