VAZATA Hosts vConnect Lunch on 2013 Trends in Cloud and Virtualization

Dallas, Texas, April 1, 2013– VAZATA, a full service cloud infrastructure, managed services and colocation provider, hosted its quarterly vConnect luncheon and Lance Black, CEO, presented on “How Cloud Strategies are Shaping Up in 2013: The Top 5 Uses of Virtualized Environments.”

Mr. Black said, “I appreciate the turn out and was pleased to see IT leaders gathered together in our marketplace, interacting on the key topic of cloud trends that we’re seeing so far this year. We highlighted five important ways in which organizations are deploying virtualized strategies, the top being to enable faster recovery during disaster or outage periods. I think this will continue to be a top application of cloud solutions in the next couple of years as companies fine tune their disaster recovery plans.”

Additional popular uses of virtualized environments include:

Accelerated growth through reallocation of financial assets as companies are able to streamline IT expenditures
Access to greater scale and capability through enterprise-class infrastructure without incurring in-house costs to build
Ability to harness the power of true mobility by making data and collaboration points seamless across offices, geographies, business units and employee groups
Increased business agility through immediate development and deployment channels via flexible cloud infrastructure
VAZATA’s vConnect Luncheon Series invites local technology leaders to participate in networking and dialogue on current industry topics related to virtualization strategies and solutions. Participation is entirely sponsored by VAZATA and all members of the DFW IT community are invited. RSVPs are required.
