Live From Times Square

View the live panel discussion taped on December 8, 2009 at SYS-CON.TV's 4th-floor studio overlooking Times Square in New York City - a very special and fast-moving "Power Panel" in which Cloud Computing Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan and three top industry guests from EMC, Intel and Unisys look “under the hood” of the fastest-growing new trend in all of Enterprise IT.

Titled "What Lies Beneath – Technologies Critical to Successful Cloud Computing," the discussion focuses on the infrastructure that supports the cloud, such as servers, storage, virtualization, automation, chargeability, self service, and security.

The three panelists from EMC, Intel and Unisys, are as follows:

Daniel Weiss is a Director in the IT Management Advisory Support team at Unisys - a group of former IT executives from global companies with extensive experience in managing and transforming large scale IT operations. He joined Unisys in February 2008 from Dow Jones and Company, Inc. where he was Director of Shared Storage Services. In 1999, he was part of the original team of Factiva - a highly successful business information startup that was eventually solely acquired by Dow Jones and Company, Inc. in 2007. His role at Factiva was to direct the infrastructure strategy and operational implementation supporting both the product (revenue generating) business, as well as the corporate infrastructure. This included server, storage, and network infrastructures supporting the development, integration, production, and business continuity environments.
