Live from New York, It’s Cloud Expo East!

From June 10-13, Hostway employees had the opportunity to meet and mingle with customers, partners and cloud enthusiasts from all over the world at Cloud Expo East held at the Javits Convention Center in New York, N.Y.

Spread across four content-packed days, the convention had three interlocking themes: Big Data, Cloud Computing and Software-Defined Networking. There was a lot to see and do and not much time in which to do it: In addition to the 90,000 square feet of exposition space, there were six keynote speeches on a variety of topics. Over 190 educational sessions were held across 9 distinct tracks; 175 breakout technical and strategy sessions took place, and more than 200 expert speakers and panelists held court.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth to talk with us, especially those who  took the time to complete our three-question survey. The survey dealt with security, scalability and performance of public cloud versus in-house solutions. We were interested in attendees’ opinions on cloud usage for web servers, database servers, email services, CRM, and additional collaboration software. The results will be published in an infographic and available on our website after it’s published. Want more info on the survey? Email media@hostway.com. In the meantime, you can read more about the survey.

Those who completed the survey were given a chance to win Xbox 360 with Kinect; the two lucky winners were Stephen Bornholtz (left) from MON Designs and Saurabh Gupta (right) from WebSpiders.

Hostway would like to thank its partners for taking time out from their busy conference schedules to meet with us! It’s always a pleasure to sit down face-to-face and talk about how to strengthen and enhance our partnerships. We’re better together, and collectively, we can help our customers’ businesses grow and thrive.

Be sure to watch this space for the results of the survey, and we hope to see you again next year at Cloud Expo East 2014!
