We’re escaping the cold, wintery weather at our headquarters in Philadelphia and heading to Silicon Valley for Cloud Connect Santa Clara (#ccevent) February 14-15, 2012. Cloud Connect brings together the entire cloud eco-system to better understand the transformations cloud is bringing to the Enterprise.
As a Platinum sponsor, we’ll be setting up shop at booth #414 where SunGard representatives will be available to discuss our cloud offerings, including our Enterprise Cloud Services and cloud-recovery services. Stop by our booth during the expo for a scratch off ticket* where you could win an Apple® MacBook® Air, Apple® iPad® 2 or a $5 Starbucks® gift card. Every card is a winner, so be sure to stop by. We’ll also be attending several sessions throughout the duration of the conference where we’ll be live tweeting, posting to our Facebook wall and shooting video in our booth. Follow us for the play-by-play!

Also on the schedule this year, SunGard Availability Services will be delivering two presentations during the conference. The first session will examine the increasing need for private cloud solutions and things to consider when evaluating a private cloud solution. Session details below:
Taking a Private Path to the Cloud
Date: Tuesday, February 14, 2012, 1:15 PM-2:15 PM
Presenter: David Ayers, senior product manager of Cloud services at SunGard Availability Services
Location: Grand Ballroom H
Description: Enterprises are actively exploring cloud solutions to help drive down overall IT costs and increase operational efficiency, all while minimizing risks and reducing complexity. However, the vendor landscape is filled with public solutions not always suited to Enterprise needs for security, compliance, service levels and high availability. This session will discuss the growing need for private cloud and the different aspects to consider when evaluating private cloud solutions.
The second presentation, slated for Wednesday, will review the top 5 considerations for cloud-based recovery.
