Parallels APAC Summit: Lance Crosby Keynote

SoftLayer absolutely loves attending and participating in technology trade shows and conferences. This year we expect to be at 70 – 80 shows around the globe and chances are that if you’re at a technology show, you'll see SoftLayer shirts in the crowd.

This year we're lucky enough to be apart of the Parallels APAC Summit held in Singapore. More than 300 technology partners and enthusiasts are attending informative sessions, networking events and likely attending one or two SoftLayer-sponsored parties!

Parallels was also kind enough to invite our CEO, Lance Crosby, to Singapore to keynote today. We had great attendance, nearly a packed room and Lance spoke about where hosting came from and where it is headed.

If you're interested in hosting, make a living from hosting or you have partners who provide hosting to you, I'd encourage you to flip through Lance's presentation:

Hosting is Dead. Long Live Hosting!

If you weren't able to join us in Orlando for Parallels Summit 2011, you missed out on a great conference. More than 1,500 peers, partners and industry influencers shared a wealth of knowledge, some great recommendations and a drink or two. SoftLayer got to share in some of the spotlight when we announced Parallels Automation on-Demand, and I was honored to speak in one of the keynote sessions on Wednesday.

Rather than bore you with bullet points about what I shared, I thought it might be easier to bring you into the room so you can hear the whole session yourself:

Thanks for the opportunity, Parallels! We're already looking forward to next year.

CEO Lance Crosby to Keynote Parallels Summit

The Super Bowl is over, so now we can all focus our attention on Parallels Summit which is coming up in two weeks.

We are very excited to have SoftLayer CEO Lance Crosby, one of the industry's most successful entrepreneurs, deliver a keynote address this year. I look forward to hearing Lance's views on the future of the industry in light of the recent acquisition of The Planet. The strategies his team puts in place to capture and increase market share will be of particular interest to me.

Parallels Summit is the leading global gathering of the Cloud industry. More than 1,500 attendees, including hosting companies, communication service providers (CSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), software vendors and web designers from around the world will join forces to discuss trends, strategies and business opportunities in the Cloud. The Summit will take place February 22-24 at the Gaylord Palms Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

I appreciate the opportunity to meet and share ideas at Summit with industry leaders like Lance, Go Daddy President and COO Warren Adelman, AT&T VP of SMB Product Management Ebrahim Keshavarz, and Ingram Micro VP of Managed Services and Cloud Computing Renee Bergeron, among many others. This year's Summit will again give all attendees invaluable access to potential business partners, Parallels technical and business resources, and other industry participants.

Good luck to everyone in winning the three day lease of a Lamborghini. You will no doubt have fun. For those who haven't registered yet, there is still time. Summit is free – so register today!

See you all in Orlando!
