The EMC Cloud Computing breakfast briefing (Pictures)

Posted by Read 7 Comments

Today, we spent the morning at the Cloud Computing breakfast briefing , which we organized together with EMC and Utande. The few hours of cloud talk was quite interesting for us and for a lot of attendees we talked to, helped demystify the technical issues to do with using cloud based services locally.

EMC’s Grant Mufford demonstrated the equipment and services the company offers and how these can help organizations migrate to cloud computing. He also presented internet based tools to help tech managers understand and make cloud computing migration decisions.

Utande and Realtime Bytes presentations were largely about the new cloud platforms that they have available. Like the one that won Utande an exhibition award at the recent local ICT Africa event. Utande also presented some Storage as a Service products for both enterprise businesses and small businesses, as well as home users. They actually have (or are going to soon) a service they call Atmos, which Utande’s Colin Franco said has features similar to Dropbox.

We’ll be posting more information about the topics discussed. In the meantime here are some pictures from the event.
