FortressITX CEO to Discuss Enterprise Cloud Optimization at CloudExpo

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Jason Silverglate, CEO of FortressITX, an NY Metro based cloud integration firm, will be among the panellists presenting at Telx booth #725 at CloudExpo West in Santa Clara, CA. Silverglate will be presenting along with other experts from the Telx cloudXchange Tuesday through Thursday this week.

Jason and his team have been developing private cloud technology from their datacenter in Clifton, NJ for the past 18 months. During that time, the FortressITX team investigated many approaches to developing their own public cloud solution. “After researching many different cloud deployments, we felt there was a big disconnect with the way most firms were approaching data storage and hypervisor redundancy,” said Jason.

Ditlev Brendakl, CEO of OnApp, when asked about FortressITX said, “I’m impressed by the significant investments FortressITX has made into their SAN infrastructure. When speaking with our own clients, I often recommend that they take a look at the storage technology that Jason and FortressITX have designed, before investing in their own.”

FortressITX was added to the Telx cloudXchange last spring. “We’re proud to be a part of the Telx cloudXchange. I feel that Telx have done a wonderful job in bringing cloud service providers together for both the benefit of their clients as well as furthering cloud technology,” said Silverglate.

Jason’s schedule for presenting his ideas on cloud optimization follows.

Tuesday Nov 8th, 4:05PM
Wednesday Nov 9th, 11:30AM and 4:00PM
Thursday Nov 10th, 11:30AM

Jason will conduct a brief Q&A after his presentation and is available for meetings throughout the week. Jason may be reached at [email protected] for meetings and questions related to his presentation.
