Coraid to Speak About Software-Defined Storage for Cloud Architectures at Cloud Expo New York

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Coraid®, a leading provider of scale-out Ethernet storage solutions, will be speaking at Cloud Expo on the use of software-defined storage to build large, scalable cloud architectures. Cloud Expo, now in its fifth year, is an annual conference dedicated to senior technologists that focuses on how to improve business agility while lowering operating and capital costs. It is larger than all other cloud events put together and is taking place June 10-13, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City.

Kevin Brown, CEO of Coraid, will present a general session on software-defined storage for cloud architectures on Tuesday, June 11, at 11:45 a.m. Brown will explain how Ethernet storage architectures employ off-the-shelf hardware, standard Ethernet and distributed storage processing to enable a building-block approach, with no forklift upgrades required. These architectures leverage a powerful REST API policy engine and automation to enable one-click provisioning to deliver flexible software-defined storage that offers simplicity at scale. Paul Roberts, principal architect at Coraid, will provide a technical overview of the rapidly changing landscape in enterprise storage on Thursday, June 13, at 1:40 p.m.

Brown will also participate in the CEO Power Panel on June 11 at 7 p.m. This high-level session, focused on "Where's the Cloud Taking IT Next?," will cover topics such as the remaining barriers to cloud adoption and what industry gains have meant to cloud traction.

Coraid will also demonstrate powerful one-click provisioning capabilities in its EtherCloud platform in booth #319 at the event. To learn more about Coraid's industry-leading software-defined storage solution for enterprise environments, visit
