SYS-CON Events announced today that Microsoft has been named "Gold Sponsor" of SYS-CON's 5th International (www.CloudComputingExpo.com), which will take place on April 19-21, 2010, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
Cloud Expo is the world's leading Cloud-focused event since 2007, and is held five times a year, in New York City, Silicon Valley, Prague, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
Microsoft cloud services mean freedom for businesses. The freedom to access the technology you want, where and when you want it. The freedom to take advantage of the latest technology as a capital expense, or an operational one. The freedom to focus on running your business - not running IT systems.
Microsoft cloud services are Microsoft by extension: Giving you the ability to make full use of the same Microsoft technologies you already know and trust, on a pay-as-you-go model. For a single department or an entire global organization. On-premises, offpremises, or a combination of both, depending on your business needs.
Microsoft cloud services are Microsoft as a utility, but it is more than plugging into a utility. It's the applications you know, the platforms you know, and a data center infrastructure - all working together in a cohesive whole. It's Microsoft when you need it. Microsoft on your terms.

A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the 5th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network this April in New York.
Over 200 corporate sponsors and 10,000 industry professionals became part of Cloud Expo since its inception, more than all other Cloud-related events put together worldwide.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and CEO of SYS-CON Events. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will participate in the Cloud Expo."
