SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) -

WHAT: Dave Roberts, vice-president of strategy and marketing at ServiceMesh, will moderate a panel on "Building Private Clouds" at this year's Interop Las Vegas, May 9, 2011. The panel brings together cloud experts from IBM, Intel, NEC and Novell to discuss the building blocks of a private cloud and how IT managers can turn their data centers into on-demand computing resources for their organizations.

WHY: Private clouds offer IT organizations the opportunity to improve their responsiveness to business needs, reduce operating costs, optimize resource utilization, and lower capital spending associated with enterprise IT operations, infrastructure, and platforms. But for IT to properly leverage the cloud and redirect its resources to become more innovative and adaptable to business change, the organization must make the right choices related to virtualization, automation, self-service, and monitoring to ensure the environment matches its needs. The experts on this panel have all implemented cloud environments and have learned from experience what IT managers need to consider to ensure their companies obtain optimal benefit from strategic cloud computing, and beyond.
