HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Mezeo Software, the leading provider of deployable cloud storage solutions, today announced that Mezeo President and CEO Steve Lesem will participate in a panel discussion at the Hosting Transformation Summit North America. The panel, "Storage Opportunities: Cloud vs. Conventional," will explore the advantages of modern cloud storage over traditional SAN- and NAS-based storage.

"The cloud storage market is growing rapidly, and it is a significant opportunity for IT hosters and Managed Service Providers," Lesem said. "This group has very distinct needs based on their business models, and is looking for service-enabled solutions that provide differentiation versus the bulk storage solutions out there. I look forward to the discussion with my colleagues on the panel about the pros and cons of various approaches to cloud storage and best practices for service providers looking to monetize cloud storage services."

The summit will be held at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas on September 14 to 16. The panel is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. on Sept. 15, and will be moderated by Antonio Piraino, Research Director of Hosting and Cloud Computing for Tier1 Research. Mezeo will be exhibiting at the event in booth #4.
