Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (application delivery controller) company, and GigaOM, a leading business media company, today announced that Zeus will sponsor the 3rd annual Structure conference, the industry’s number one cloud computing event.
At Structure 2010, which will be held June 23–24 in San Francisco, Zeus will be revealing results of a survey on web performance challenges and its new platform that addresses these industry issues head on. Zeus is also hosting a workshop with its customer WhitePages on “Best Practices for Fast, Secure and Available Application Delivery Across Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments.” Participants in the Zeus Technology workshop, held Thursday June 24 at 10:20 a.m., will learn how to increase web application speed, security and availability.
“As a top 50 web property, WhitePages relies heavily on the real-time performance and reliability of its website to differentiate the user experience in a highly competitive space “ said Kosten Metreweli, CMO of Zeus Technology. “In this workshop, Hernan Alvarez, Senior Director of IT/Operations for WhitePages, will highlight how they’ve been able to manage and deliver exceptional online services and minimize costs. We will also talk about how other Zeus customers use our technology within their cloud infrastructure to automatically burst application capacity at peak times and manage application delivery across hybrid, physical and cloud environments from a single point.”
At Structure 2010, industry leaders will discuss the future of cloud computing, making predictions as to where the maturing industry is headed and which technologies are emerging as standards, as well as share best practices for implementing cloud infrastructures in the enterprise. Unlike other industry conferences, Structure is an interactive, open-format event where attendees debate the issues that matter most to them. From broadband to hardware and software, the conference topics cover every aspect of cloud computing.
“Structure has emerged as the leading cloud computing conference in the industry because it attracts the best minds from the web, SaaS and enterprise infrastructure sectors, who come together to discuss the evolution of the industry and share ideas,” said Om Malik, founder of GigaOM. “We’re thrilled to have leading companies sponsor, demonstrate and launch their products at Structure.”
Structure 2010’s sponsors are some of the brightest names in cloud computing, providing innovations in enterprise software and infrastructure that are transforming the way companies do business.
Over 800 attendees representing more than 600 companies, as well as journalists from dozens of top media outlets, are expected to attend Structure 2010 – taking place over two days this year to accommodate an incredible roster of speakers and expanded lineup of presentations. Dozens of speakers, including Salesforce.com’s Marc Benioff, VMWare CEO Paul Maritz, and Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, will take the stage at this influential event.
