Burton’s Catalyst Conference Tees Up Some Sizzle on Cloud Talk

This week, hundreds of business and technology executives, representing Global 2000 and Fortune 500 companies, will converge in sunny San Diego, CA, for Burton Group’s (recently acquired by Gartner, Inc. ) annual America’s Catalyst Conference, July 26-30.

A quick glimpse at the Burton Group Insight sessions shows that  no hot-topic stone will be left unturned—from e-mail server virtualization to qualitative risk management, Smartphone-device management, and BPM Infrastructure.

To boot, there’s a healthy helping of virtualization and cloud discussion with sessions on cloud infrastructure, cloud databases, SaaS, data clouds, hybrid clouds, federation and clouds, client virtualization, and securing workloads in the cloud. It’s all clouds all the time.

With the CTOs and Chief Scientists of Amazon, Citrix, NetApp, and RSA (to name a few) on hand, attendees are sure to be treated to some of the latest thinking and insights on security.

This is why, with particular pride, we call your attention to the roundtable, “Debating Hypervisor Security,” set  to occur at 4:45 p.m., on Thursday, July 29, the discussion will be moderated by Gartner’s Trent Henry, Principal Analyst and will feature:

  • Bret Hartman, CTO, RSA
  • Simon Crosby, CTO, Data Center & Cloud Division, Citrix Systems, Inc.
  • Dale Wickizer, CTO, U. S. Public Sector, NetApp, Inc.
  • Mike Neil, General Manager, Virtualization Strategy, Windows Server Division Microsoft
  • Allwyn Sequeira, Vice President & CTO, Security, VMware
  • and Altor’s very own CEO,  Amir Ben-Efraim

If you can make it, we look forward to hearing your thoughts on the session. If not, please visit our blog next week for a recap and highlights.
