SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 30, 2010) -  CloudStorageStrategy.com today introduced a Cloud Storage Business Model for Enterprises to help IT decision makers who are considering cloud storage. Underwritten by Mezeo Software™ (www.mezeo.com), a leading provider of a deployable cloud storage platform for enterprises and service providers, CloudStorageStrategy.com is a forum for industry thought leaders to exchange insights and observations on the evolving cloud storage space and technology.

The Cloud Storage Business Model for Enterprises was announced at the VMworld 2010 Conference, which continues through September 2nd at Moscone Center in San Francisco. The conference theme is, "Virtual Roads. Actual Clouds." Mezeo Software is exhibiting in the New Innovator Pavilion, and will demonstrate their Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform for the Enterprise offering.

The Enterprise ROI Model identifies the key enterprise business drivers for cloud storage, and provides a model that helps organizations quantitatively evaluate if implementing a private storage cloud is the best option for them. The ROI model and paper may be downloaded at www.cloudstoragestrategy.com/emodel.

"The enterprises we speak with are under increased pressure to reduce the cost of continuously growing storage without compromising data security, integrity or availability," said Steve Lesem, the founder of CloudStorageStrategy.com and the CEO of Mezeo Software. "The good news is that implementing a private storage cloud can provide cost savings while maintaining control behind the firewall. This ROI model helps them evaluate multiple use case options so that they can make the right decision for their organization."

In addition to reducing the cost of storage, the Enterprise ROI Model examines other areas of opportunity, including in-house backup, thin provisioning, risk management, productivity gains, the ability to manage large file transmissions, workstation storage upgrades and sharing information versus emailing information.

Lesem is speaking on the topic of Enterprise cloud adoption at the upcoming Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit North America in Las Vegas. The executive panel discussion, titled, "Enterprise and the Cloud -- Breaking Down the Barriers to Adoption," takes place at 3pm Pacific Time on September 14th.
