FiReGlobal : West Coast to Showcase Cloud Pioneer Terremark

FRIDAY HARBOR, WA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2010) - The FiReGlobal : West Coast Conference is proud to announce that Terremark Worldwide has been selected as a FiReStar company. FiReStar companies, both local and global, are chosen for their potential to bring large-scale positive change to the world; eight of these companies will be showcased throughout the FiReGlobal : West Coast conference, and at a FiReStar reception, where local and global investors will be given the chance to meet company officers. Past FiReStar companies have included Tesla Motors, CytomX Therapeutics and Serious Materials.

Terremark Worldwide is a leading global provider of IT infrastructure services delivered on the industry's most robust and advanced operations platform. Leveraging purpose-built datacenters in the United States, Europe and Latin America and access to massive and diverse network connectivity from more than 160 global carriers, Terremark delivers government, enterprise and Web 2.0 customers a comprehensive suite of managed solutions including managed hosting, co-location, network and security services.

"We are very proud to be recognized as a FiReStar company," said Manuel D. Medina, Terremark's Chairman and CEO. "This recognition is further evidence of our innovative leadership in delivering the secure and reliable IT infrastructure that enterprise and federal government CIOs need for their complex systems."

The FiReGlobal : West Coast conference will take place November 11th at the Seattle Fairmont Olympic Hotel. This is the second annual regional version of the renowned Future in Review™ global technology conference, which The Economist calls "the best technology conference in the world." FiReGlobal : West Coast will showcase a world-class gathering of local and global thought leaders in technology and economics through a series of interviews and onstage conversations. The conference will feature Oracle President Mark Hurd, who will take the stage as a Conversation Interview in his first outside speaking engagement since joining Oracle. In a move beyond other tech conferences, FiReGlobal : West Coast has overlaid regional problems nominated by local leaders, to be solved through the collaboration of local Chief Technology Officers prior to the conference. 

"Terremark saw the need for optimized IT infrastructure long ago, and quietly went about building a leading edge product portfolio that they deliver from their global datacenter footprint. As we improve our broadband connections, this infrastructure will increasingly have nodal value in business models, in bandwidth use, and in data movement of all kinds," said Mark Anderson, CEO of SNS, Chair of FiRe and FiReGlobal : West Coast.
