What’s Cloud Computing? According to a recent Yankee Group webinar titled, “Weathering Cloud-based Services” cloud computing is defined as “Dynamically scalable virtualized information services delivered on-demand over the Internet.” While a definitive definition of cloud computing may still be under debate, the business advantages of cloud computing continue to gain momentum with some early adapters already out ahead of the pack with cloud service offerings.

HostingCon 2009 is bringing together senior executives from a few of these cutting-edge companies to participate on a panel titled, “Offering Cloud Services to Your Customers.” Are you ready to see the best models and approaches to implementing cloud services?

Panelists Nathan Day (CTO at SoftLayer), Emil Sayegh (General Manager at Mosso, Rackspace Cloud Division), Steve Lesem (CEO of Mezeo), and Jack Zubarev (President at Parallels), show you the applications that are best suited for each type of cloud service. These panelists will explain the experiences that their companies went through in creating their cloud services, and what suggestions they have for hosters to differentiate themselves when planning to offer cloud services.

Additionally this panel will inform you how to:
* Understand the benefits of using the cloud
* Explain their view of how the cloud works
* How to generate revenue using various cloud models

This is an interactive session and moderator, Iain Grant from the Sea Board Group, will look for audience participation. The goal of this panel is to provide clarity around how to use the cloud as an independent hosting company and to gain an effective perspective to compete and thrive in the changing environment.
