AppZero's CEO Greg O'Connor will be a featured speaker at CloudSlam’10TM, the world’s premier cloud computing virtual conference March 23-25. O'Connor's session is entitled, "Case Study: Fortune100 data center provisions to and from * Cloud with Virtual Application Appliances.”

The enterprise wants to move existing apps out of the data center and across clouds without any modification, but there is a corollary requirement of provisioning within the data center. Functionally, AppZero blurs the lines between those spheres.

AppZero's CEO Greg O'Connor will be a featured speaker at CloudSlam’10TM, the world’s premier cloud computing virtual conference March 23-25. O'Connor's session is entitled, "Case Study: Fortune100 data center provisions to and from * Cloud with Virtual Application Appliances.”

In this session, O'Connor will detail the real-world experience of an AppZero Fortune 100 customer using a single gold server-application image for cross-domain provisioning of the data center, to multiple clouds and back. The ability to move server-based applications across VMs --VMware, Xen, and Hyper-V -- without any modifications freed this Fortune 100 company from infrastructure lock-in. O’Connor examines the multiplier effect of that freedom across the data center to *clouds, where * = any combination of Disaster Cloud, Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud on any combination of cloud vendors' offerings.

Session Date and Time: March 23, 2010 @ 1pm EST

Commenting on the impact of this session, O'Connor reflected, "There is a real hunger out there for practical how-to guidance. The confluence of technological maturity with a dampened economy forms a fertile ground for the cost-slashing innovation that AppZero brings to server-side application provisioning. The enterprise wants to move existing applications out of the data center and across clouds without any modification, but there is a corollary requirement of provisioning within the data center. Functionally, AppZero blurs the lines between those spheres of operation."

O'Connor, pioneering the Virtual Application Appliance approach to simplifying application-lifecycle management, is responsible for translating Appzero's vision into strategic business objectives and financial results. O'Connor has over 25 years of management and technical experience in the computer industry. He was founder and president of Sonic Software, acquired in 2005 by Progress Software (PRGS).

About AppZero

AppZero software virtualizes Windows and UNIX server applications for nearly instant provisioning as services across a network, on any server (physical or virtual), in the datacenter or in the cloud. First to market with a toolset for virtualizing server-side applications, AppZero has pioneered the Virtual Application Appliance (VAA), in which an application is encapsulated with all of its dependencies - but without any operating system (OS) component. The result is server applications that are 100% portable with zero footprint and performance near native levels. For enterprises and ISVs intrigued by the capital-free potential of pay-as-you-go-computing, AppZero provides a smooth on-ramp to the cloud without any cloud lock-in. Requiring no modification to existing applications, AppZero makes it technically easy and economically sensible to explore and exploit cloud computing. http://www.appzero.com
