Gravitant to Speak on Cloud Strategy at the 451 Group HCTS Conference in London

Gravitant® today announced that its Chief Marketing Officer, Praveen Asthana, will join 451 Group Research VP and moderator William Fellows and other panelists to discuss “Best Execution Venue Strategies for Cloud Computing” at the 451 Group Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit (HCTS) in London, on April 9 at 2:30 p.m. BST.

Asthana, along with executives from VMware, Cloudsoft and Parliamentary ICT, will examine the current state of the hybrid cloud and educate attendees on how to make rational decisions when choosing environments to host applications and workloads, a practice known as best execution venue (BEV) strategies. Asthana will offer case studies and examples that help attendees answer questions, such as:

  • Which cloud service is best for my application and business need?
  • Should it be a private cloud or public cloud?
  • Will moving my applications to the cloud save me money?

“A cloud service, along with a brokerage and management platform, can help businesses choose a cloud option that best suits their applications and workload requirements, and also helps to optimise sourcing across multiple public and private clouds,” said Asthana. “I hope to illustrate how the complex issues surrounding cloud usage are easy-to-manage through BEVs and demonstrated Gravitant success stories.”

The 451 Group’s HCTS is the premier forum for executives in the hosting, cloud computing, datacenter, and Internet infrastructure sectors. Corporate leaders and professionals gather to learn, network and map out strategies for today’s rapidly changing marketplace, and to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the hosting and cloud industries.
