AUSTIN, TX and BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - HostingCon -- SolidFire, the leader in all-SSD storage systems designed for cloud infrastructure, is inviting key cloud provider executives to a roundtable dinner to discuss the challenges and unprecedented opportunity that comes with delivering guaranteed performance in the cloud. The discussion will be facilitated by Structure Research Managing Director Phil Shih and will explore the delivery of production applications in the cloud, and the services that support them from the cloud provider perspective.

Also joining SolidFire in the QoS Summit will be Antonio Piraino, CTO of ScienceLogic.

"ScienceLogic is an important partner for SolidFire and many of our joint cloud provider customers," said SolidFire VP of Marketing, Jay Prassl. "Their deep multi-tenant monitoring and management platform enables providers to easily measure key metrics around storage performance, utilization, and efficiency from their SolidFire cluster. ScienceLogic gives cloud providers and their customers unprecedented transparency in monitoring storage quality of service settings and performance SLAs."

"SolidFire's ability to deliver guaranteed storage performance is one of the key drivers behind enterprises delivering more production level applications from a cloud infrastructure," said Antonio Piraino, CTO of ScienceLogic. "As part of our roundtable discussion we will be demonstrating how ScienceLogic can monitor storage QoS settings, and how providers can extend that capability to their enterprise customers."
