Latest "Real Cloud" Webinar Takes on Enterprise Cloud Adoption Obstacles, Defines the Cross-Border Cloud

OpSource Co-Founder John Rowell and Noted CNET Blogger Dave Rosenberg Discuss the Challenges and Opportunities of Cross-Border Clouds in the Third Installment of "The Real Cloud"

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) -  OpSource™, the leader in Cloud operations, today announced that co-founder, CTO and industry insider John Rowell will take on the concept of "cross-border" clouds and their impact on enterprise cloud adoption in the third episode of CloudTV's "The Real Cloud" webinar series, which will air Tuesday, March 16th, at 2 p.m. ET and be accessible from This month's guest is influential blogger Dave Rosenberg, who is best known for his seminal Software, Interrupted blog on CNET. Rosenberg is also the co-founder and former CEO of open source infrastructure software provider MuleSoft as well as an advisor to numerous open source and cloud start-ups.

Rowell and Rosenberg will discuss why, despite huge spending and a never ending supply of new products, enterprise IT is no less complicated than it was a few years ago. More and more IT shops are interested in taking advantage of the public cloud but only if they can keep their data behind the firewall. If this kind of hybrid approach is ever going to work, cross-border clouds that can connect a more secure public cloud to data behind the firewall will have to emerge. 

"We have been hearing for what feels like eons how the cloud will save the enterprise, yet we still haven't seen mass adoption," said John Rowell, co-founder and CTO, OpSource. "I really look forward to hearing Dave's thoughts on how we can use concepts like the 'cross-border' cloud to jump-start enterprise cloud usage. This should be a lively discussion and I encourage anyone thinking about deploying the cloud today to jump into the fray."
