Cloud Connect has been closely tracking the recent heated debate around which infrastructure is best suited for the enterprise cloud. There’s still no clear verdict, so Cloud Connect will continue the conversation from the keynote stage in Chicago. From accessibility to cost to security, AWS, CloudStack and OpenStack all have their benefits and limitations, which experts will thoroughly explore during the keynote panel, “Stack Wars: The Battle for the Enterprise Cloud.”

We’re pleased to announce that Margaret Dawson, VP of Product Marketing & Cloud Evangelist of HP Cloud Services will moderate the panel, which will include advocates for these competitive platforms. Margaret is perfectly positioned to host this session, with more than 20 years of global leadership experience and ample time spent working in the cloud industry. Prior to her current position at HP, she ran point for two cloud startups in the B2B integration and data storage markets, and served at Microsoft and Amazon.com. She has a keen understanding of cloud trends, and is a valued member of both the Cloud Connect Advisory Council and the Cloud Network of Women (CloudNOW).

This is a session you won’t want to miss. We’ll be revealing panelists closer to the event, so be sure to check back on the Cloud Connect Chicago keynote page for more information. In the meantime, if you’re on Twitter, follow Margaret ‏@seattledawson to keep tabs on her perspective on the cloud.

Each year Cloud Connect Silicon Valley hosts the Cloud Executive Summit (CES), an exclusive program which takes place in advance of the main Cloud Connect Conference and Expo. The speakers and audience for CES include an interesting blend of industry executives, investors and entrepreneurs, and ample opportunity for discussion and networking. The program is fast-paced, thought provoking and focuses on a variety of interesting topics.  But the underlying theme at CES is very much focused on one thing… finding the next business opportunity in the cloud.
