SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 17, 2008) -

Who:       Javier Soltero, co-founder and CEO of Hyperic, will lead a
           strategic session at the Cloud Computing Conference & Expo

           Hyperic is the leading provider of web application performance
           monitoring software for the datacenter and the cloud. The
           company recently launched the groundbreaking CloudStatus
           service, which is the first monitoring and management tool that
           provides an independent view of the health and performance of
           leading cloud services providers including Amazon Web Services
           (AWS) and the Google Application Engine.

           Soltero previously was chief architect at Covalent Technologies,
           where he led the design and implementation of multiple
           enterprise products, including the configuration management
           product for Apache and the Covalent Application Manager -- now
           Hyperic's flagship product Hyperic HQ.

What:      The session will focus on the question of maintaining a cloud's
           availability, security and reliability. Soltero will tackle a
           number of issues, including:

              *  The emergence of web operations as a discipline
              *  How cloud computing simply changes, instead of eliminating
                 the importance of web operations
              *  What tools are available to help better manage cloud
              *  Tools to help better manage cloud environments and keep
                 the cloud scalable, available and disposable, without huge
                 changes in infrastructure and operations

           This session is one of a series at the event led by prominent
           industry figures, designed to help IT professionals make
           informed decisions about the cloud, how to deploy and operate
           cloud-focused software, its development and purchase.

When:      2:50-3:35pm, November 20, 2008
