CloudSigma to Speak on Helix Nebula Science Cloud alongside CERN at GigaOM Structure: Europe 2012

“Large Clouds for Large Colliders: Insights from the CERN Science Cloud” Session to be Held at GigaOM Structure: Europe 2012 on October 17th at 4:20p.m. CEST

Zurich, Switzerland – October 10, 2012 CloudSigma, an international, customer-centric, pure-cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider today announced that it will be speaking at GigaOM Structure: Europe 2012, October 16-17, 2012 in Amsterdam. At the event, leading figures in the cloud computing industry will examine the opportunity the cloud adoption trend presents for IT and the impact it has on business functions, globally.

CloudSigma’s session, Large Clouds for Large Colliders: Insights from the CERN Science Cloud, will be presented alongside Bob Jones, Head of CERN openlab, and moderated by Kris Tuttle, founder and CEO, SoundView Technology Group and GigaOM Analyst, at 4:20 p.m. CEST on Wednesday, October 17th. The pair will explore the coordination and process of discovery among the participating companies in the Helix Nebula science-cloud project. Specifically, the presentation will examine how contributing scientific research organizations achieved interoperability among different clouds, managed networking challenges, ensured security, and allowed the smooth movement of vast amounts of data between different locations.

What: Structure: Europe Panel – Large Clouds for Large Colliders: Insights from the CERN Science Cloud

When: Wednesday, October 17th at 4:20 p.m. CEST

Who: Moderator – Kris Tuttle, SoundView Technology Group founder and CEO and GigaOM analyst
Speaker – Bob Jones, Head of CERN openlab
Speaker – Robert Jenkin, CloudSigma CTO

“Running data centers is often seen as an additional task to the work of research organizations like CERN,” said Jenkin. “With the amount of data being stored in publicly owned data centers reaching 23 petabytes a year, the inception of a science cloud was seen as a necessity by the scientists themselves. Our cloud IaaS platform was chosen as one of the founding participants of Helix Nebula, during the session with CERN, I look forward to speaking on Helix Nebula’s continued success and offering solutions to other science organizations facing similar high-performance and big data computing issues.”
