Share Article

Sundar Kannan, founder and CEO of Bellevue-based start-up ComputeNext will bring a healthy dose of reality to the talk of cloud federation, a market said to anticipate 300% growth in Europe through 2014 alone.

Sundar will be addressing an audience at the EuroCloud Congress in Luxembourg on October 9th to share his real world experience, challenges, and obstacles overcome by ComputeNext as a cloud service brokerage realizing a federated cloud ecosystem.

Kannan will educate ICT decision-makers and EU government policy makers how cloud brokerage can bring order to the chaos of cloud service consumption, as well as caution how the model may contribute its own inefficiencies unless a focus on transparency, participation and meaningful choice are upheld.

With its anticipated growth of 300%, the federated cloud market in Europe presents a sizable opportunity - with a unique set of challenges. Sundar seeks to address these challenges by sharing his experience in building a federated cloud ecosystem at ComputeNext.
