New York, November 4, 2009 – Ray Umerley, Vice President of Technology Architecture at Innovest Systems, was among the featured speakers at a recent Savvis seminar on cloud computing. Held last month in Weehawken, New Jersey, the seminar, "Harnessing Cloud Infrastructure to Meet Enterprise Challenges," was attended by professionals from over 30 companies.
Cloud computing, one of the fastest-growing trends in Information Technology infrastructure, involves the provisioning of dynamically scalable and virtualized resources as a service over the Internet. By moving the technology infrastructure into "the cloud," organizations can reduce their overall IT capital expense and decrease their IT footprint while improving availability and scalability of their IT resources. At the seminar, subject matter experts from Savvis, VMware, and Microsoft explored various aspects of cloud computing, including how it is transforming enterprise IT, its potential risks and rewards, when it should and should not be used, and cloud service delivery models and their attributes.
As a case study, Ray Umerley presented "How Innovest Systems Leverages Cloud Computing Today," discussing Innovest's alliance with Savvis and its adoption of cutting edge technologies including Utility Compute, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Savvis Dedicated Cloud Compute. Ray discussed the drivers behind Innovest's decision to utilize these technologies and the benefits of each, as well as the considerations that current and future customers should keep in mind when designing their IT strategy.
