The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC), a consortium of IT supply-chain leaders that supports the aggregation of sales data from members representing more than $100 billion in worldwide revenue, has announced that the industry's recovery is picking up speed, with year-over-year monthly growth recently attained in both the U.S. and Europe for the first time since the downturn began in September 2008.
The findings are based on sales of GTDC members across all product lines. Consortium CEO Tim Curran referred to the role of Cloud Computing in the recovery, noting, "There are plenty of interesting angles with respect to growth drivers, the overall industry direction and the increasingly central role of distributors. Not long ago, for example, it was common to hear talk about the direct model taking over. Now the talk is about how even former direct manufacturers are leveraging distributors and their role in the new Cloud Computing environment."
GTDC members include AB. S.A, ABC Data, Actebis, Also, Arrow Electronics, Avnet, Bell Microproducts, Computer Gross Italia, DCC SerCom, D&H, Esprinet, Ingram Micro, Intcomex, Magirus AG, Redington, ScanSource, Synnex, Tech Data, 20:20 Mobile, SiS Technologies, Westcoast LTD and Westcon.
The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conferences and exhibitions in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4. The recent Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York was the largest Cloud Computing ever produced.

All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the6th and 7th 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.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "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 be attending Cloud Expo."
