NaviSite EVP and CTO Denis Martin to Speak at Cloud Expo Europe

Martin to Discuss Requirements for a Transaction-Capable Cloud

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2010) -  NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application management services, announced today that its Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Denis Martin will present "Tales from the Transactional Cloud" at the Cloud Expo Europe, the 6th International Cloud Expo. Cloud Expo Europe will be held June 21-22, 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic.

One of the inhibitors of wide-scale adoption of e-commerce and other transactional applications is the perception that cloud-based services are not yet transaction-capable. Transaction-based applications require an infrastructure that ensures security, dependability, and the ability to handle large volumes. In addition, e-commerce applications require proven credit card processing capabilities. In his presentation, Mr. Martin will review the requirements of transaction-capable cloud services, including real-time performance and its underlying infrastructure, multi-pronged security, and compliance capabilities that are needed to adhere to compliance standards. He will also present a case study of a company running transaction-based applications in the cloud.

  Who: Denis Martin, Executive VP and Chief Technology Officer, NaviSite
  What: Tales from the Transactional Cloud 
  When: Tuesday, June 22, 2:10 pm in Track 2: Cloud Security, Storage & Standards
  Where: Prague Hilton Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic
