OpSource CTO Exposes "The Real Cloud" on New CloudTV Series

OpSource Co-Founder John Rowell Hosts New Webinar Series Highlighting the Real People and Real Issues of Today's Cloud Ecosystem

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2010) - OpSource™, the leader in Cloud operations, today announced that co-founder, CTO and industry insider John Rowell will host a new CloudTV webinar series, "The Real Cloud," beginning this Tuesday, January 19th, at 2 p.m. ET, accessible from Airing the third Tuesday of each month, "The Real Cloud" will take a hands-on approach to Cloud computing, featuring the people who are living, breathing and building the Cloud every day.

"I'm excited to host this series because, as a technologist grappling with the Cloud, I feel like most Cloud conversations are only about marketing buzzwords and vague performance promises," said John Rowell, co-founder and CTO, OpSource. "This show is going to get real. It will be a frank -- and not always politically correct -- discussion of the state of the Cloud today. And it is going to be a lot of fun."

"The Real Cloud" will ring in 2010 with a special guest, noted blogger John M. Willis, and a no-holds-barred look at the best and worst of the 2009 Cloud ecosystem as well as predictions for who will be making headlines, both good and bad, in 2010. Rowell and Willis will talk about everything from the myth of Amazon elasticity to the promise of new players to whatever is on viewers' minds as we enter into yet another year when the Cloud is supposed to "get real."
