Using a Real-World Use Case, Robert Jenkins and Stephen Watling Explain the Keys to a Successful Cloud Deployment Amid Enterprise Skepticism
Brussels, Belgium – February 24, 2014 – CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, today announced that its CEO and co-founder Robert Jenkins will be speaking at Cloudscape VI, February 24-25, 2014, in Brussels, Belgium. Alongside Stephen Watling, head of unit, customer technical support at Deutsche Börse Group, Jenkins will be speaking on the session “CloudSigma Flexibility in Financial Services Through the Cloud,” Monday, February 24th at 4 p.m. CET.
Presented as a real-world use case, Watling and Jenkins will explain Deutsche Börse’s journey to the public cloud for its Virtualized Private Simulation project. Initially, the project faced internal resistance based on common cloud misconceptions and concerns about finding a cloud that closely matched the existing production environments within Deutsche Börse’s trading systems. Upon weighing the requirements of the project, which included low implementation costs and fast development cycles, the financial organization decided on CloudSigma’s public cloud environment for its reliability, capacity and flexibility benefits, while curbing data privacy and security concerns.
In this session, attendees will learn the approach, considerations, challenges and benefits of launching a cloud-based application in an organization accustomed to deploying on dedicated infrastructure. The presentation will show how, with flexible, innovative cloud providers, cloud computing myths will be rebuked and cloud adoption will skyrocket among enterprises.

“Understandably, many larger corporations have very strict compliance requirements, but increasingly that doesn’t mean that they have to remain grounded to only on-premise environment options,” said Jenkins. “We’ve found our ability to support customers’ existing technology choices, along with an approach that supports secure computing for customers, is opening the door to the cloud for many new corporations previously not procuring from public cloud providers. We are proud Deutsche Börse chose CloudSigma to support them in deploying their new service. We definitely feel as though it further validates our focus on performance, flexibility and control as an ideal choice for enterprise customers in our cloud.”
