Cloud computing continues to gain momentum as enterprises of all sizes and across all industries seek to harness the business agility promised by this computing model. Despite its long-accepted benefits, the cloud has also fallen victim to performance and reliability challenges, combined with a perceived lack of security. As a result this has led to slower predicted growth and adoption of this still promising infrastructure methodology.
In his Lunchtime Focus Keynote at 12th Cloud Expo, Neil Cohen, Akamai's Vice President of Global Product Marketing, explains how to these challenges, and the role application delivery solutions play in optimizing public and hybrid cloud architectures without sacrificing performance, security or control.
Prior to joining Akamai, Cohen worked at Mindspeed Technologies where he was the Director of Marketing specializing in internet infrastructure chipsets and software used in routers, VoIP gateways, wireless base stations and broadband access equipment. Neil has also held a variety of senior marketing and engineering positions at Conexant Systems, Compaq Computer and Digital Equipment Corporation in the areas of programmable network processors, circuit design and semiconductor processes.
