  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) November 02, 2010 - newScale, rPath, Eucalyptus Systems and MomentumSI, members of The NRE Alliance (NRE), a coalition focused on bringing self-service private and hybrid clouds to the enterprise, are sponsoring an interactive online panel discussion in which CEOs of the four companies will exchange views on present-day enterprise cloud computing. The panel will be moderated by James Staten, vice president, principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc.

    Today's enterprise IT organizations are under pressure to transform from bottleneck to business enabler. The rise of public cloud services like Rackspace and Amazon have provided-if not the vehicle-the context for this transformation. IT leadership recognizes that they must become self-service, automated and elastic to meet the cost and speed expectations of modern IT. For many, self-service private/hybrid cloud is the path to this destination.

    Join this timely online panel discussion to hear from technical leadership of a newly formed "coalition of independents" (NRE) focused on combining best-in-class automation as the foundation for self-service private/hybrid clouds.
