  Cloud Computing and Hosting

  Presented by:
    Paul Lancaster, GoGrid

    GoGrid is a multi-server control panel for deploying and scaling
    load-balanced cloud server network. GoGrid allows the deployment of
    both 32- or 64-bit RHEL and CentOS Linux servers and Windows Server
    2008 servers.  A web-based GUI and an API for developers are available
    for interacting with GoGrid's cloud hosting infrastructure.

    Cloud computing is Internet-based ('cloud') development and use of
    computer technology ('computing').  The cloud is a metaphor for the
    Internet (based on how it is depicted in computer network diagrams)
    and is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals.
    It is a style of computing in which IT-related capabilities are provided
    'as a service,' allowing users to access technology-enabled services
    from the Internet ('in the cloud') without knowledge of, expertise
    with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.

  About the Speaker:

    Paul Lancaster is a Business Development Manager of GoGrid, at ServePath.
    He's responsible for the creation of the Channel Partner Program at
    GoGrid, and was previously an Accounts Manager with ServePath.
