Virtualization and automation leader, Parallels, will headline HostingCon 2009 — a leading conference for the hosted services industry — to educate attendees on opportunities and solutions aimed at small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). HostingCon is being held August 10–12, 2009, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, in National Harbor, MD. Parallels will have a strong presence at the event, demonstrating solutions to help hosting providers offer cloud services to meet SMB demand.
According to Saugatuck Research, SMBs are the most aggressive adopters of cloud. Hosting services providers have a unique opportunity to offer their SMB customers applications via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and ensure they have access to hundreds of applications. "SMBs need easy-to-use, cost-effective, on-demand services that enable them to do more with existing resources," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. "Parallels cloud automation software lets businesses tap into computing capacity when needed and achieve greater efficiencies to grow revenue."
Parallels CEO, Serguei Beloussov, will deliver the keynote presentation at the event. The Parallels line-up lets attendees learn first-hand how to leverage cloud computing and will help attendees evaluate everything from automation to virtualization solutions.
