Hosted Solutions COO to Keynote, Moderate North Carolina Cloud Computing Conferences

Conferences to be Held in Charlotte, Raleigh

RALEIGH, NC, May 1, 2009 – Hosted Solutions (www.hostedsolutions.com), the East Coast’s premier provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), today announced that Christopher “Kip” Turco, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, will serve as keynote speaker and moderator at two cloud computing conferences to be held this month in Charlotte and Raleigh.

The Exchange Executive Edge series, hosted by WRAL/LocalTechWire.com and sponsored by the SaaS User Group, will feature cloud computing experts from companies such as Hosted Solutions, Salesforce.com, VMware, EMC, Sun Microsystems and more.  In addition to his speech, Turco will moderate a panel that will feature specific advice on what companies need to know in order to move toward a cloud-based environment, whether to host specific applications such as storage or security, or their overall IT infrastructure.

Cloud computing has been hailed as a way for companies to flexibly expand their IT capabilities at a fraction of the time and cost required over self-administered implementations.  IDC, an industry analyst firm, estimates that worldwide IT spending on cloud services will grow almost threefold, reaching $42 billion, by 2012.  With five data centers located throughout the East Coast, Hosted Solutions has rapidly emerged as a leader in the space, providing firms with services such as enterprise class dedicated hosting and a full range of managed services.  In addition, Hosted Solutions’ “hi-touch” consultative approach helps companies design and run solutions that meet their unique needs.

The conference “Are You Ready for Cloud Computing,” will be held this coming Tuesday, May 5, at Byron’s South End in Charlotte, and on Wednesday, May 13, at Bay 7-American Tobacco District in Research Triangle Park.  Both sessions run from 11:30 am until 2 pm.  More information is available at http://localtechwire.com/business/local_tech_wire/events/page/4721216/.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
