From Rain to Sunshine: Back from London and Headed to Miami, Las Vegas and Santa Clara

Posted on January 30, 2012 by Rob Bissett

Lots going on at 6fusion and it’s all good – last week, we were in London for Cloud Expo Europe and Cloud Camp London.

We previewed our new UC6 IaaS federation platform at Cloud Expo Europe and John Cowan spoke on Equinix’s “Home of Cloud” panel.  The show was well attended – in fact they exceeded their expectations by a fair amount.  Europe is very cloud focused right now.  We heard a lot of feedback around the various options out there and several themes came to the forefront – data residency, and utility metering – both of which 6fusion is well equipped to provide.  It will be exciting to follow up on these opportunities in the coming weeks.

I’ll be heading to IT Expo this week and speaking on the “Best Practices for Monetizing the Cloud” panel alongside Nancy Maluso of Sonus Networks and Jim McLaughlin of GENBAND.  We are going to discuss the pitfalls resellers and service providers need to avoid and how to build a successful cloud offering.  These panels are always interesting as everyone brings their own experience and insights.

After that – I am off to Las Vegas for VMWare Partner Exchange (booth #504).  We’ll also be exhibiting at Cloud Connect Santa Clara (booth 910).

If you are attending any of these shows and want to meet up – ping me on Twitter (robbissett).
