June 27, 2011 by  

Hosting ServicesSAN FRANCISCO, CA – Virtustream, Inc., a leading provider of cloud services and next-generation infrastructure solutions, takes center stage this week at GigaOM Structure 2011, a high-level industry event focused on cloud computing, to showcase how its enterprise cloud computing approach meets even the most demanding IT and data center requirements. A “Primetime Sponsor” of Structure, Virtustream will join customer Florida Crystals/Domino Sugar to talk about how a pragmatic, visionary process has led to significant cost savings and performance improvements based on the sugar company’s cloud deployment.

“The story of Domino Sugar’s cloud deployment demonstrates a new chapter in cloud computing—more and more companies are looking to Virtustream for enterprise cloud deployments that are based on a real-world assessment of how to best capitalize on the new compute deployment models as well as Virtustream’s expertise with critical enterprise applications,” said Rodney Rogers, chairman and chief executive officer at Virtustream. “We will present the Domino Sugar story at Structure in a session moderated by Derrick Harris, who was among the first journalists to understand the emergence of the enterprise cloud and its importance.”

Rogers joins Harris and Don Whittington, vice president and CIO of Florida Crystals/Domino Sugar, during a lunch workshop, “Best Practices for Enterprise Cloud Efficiencies,” which is scheduled for 12:40 p.m. on June 23. Held June 22-23, GigaOM Structure represents the latest stop on Virtustream’s Rockin’ the Cloud Tour 2011, and attendees are invited to visit the Virtustream booth #4 to get a vintage rock-inspired cloud t-shirt.
