State of the Cloud II: Enterprise Patterns Emerge Webinar

rPath will be leading a webinar panel discussion, State of the Cloud II: Enterprise Patterns Emerge. Our own John Engates, Rackspace CTO, will be part of the panel.

Last year, the cloud cognoscenti set out to clarify definitions—what is cloud? What isn’t cloud? What does it mean for the present and the future?

This year, the focus is on adoption patterns and entry points—where enterprises are making use of cloud computing, finding value and gaining traction with their initiatives.

Join this important panel discussion to hear from some of the leading cloud thought leaders and practitioners on the paths and patterns surrounding enterprise cloud.

The discussion will be moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions, prolific ZDNet blogger and esteemed thought leader.

Panel participants include:

  • Randy Bias, CEO, Cloudscaling
  • Michael Crandell, CEO, Rightscale
  • John Engates, CTO, Rackspace
  • Sheng Liang, CEO,
  • Erik Troan, CTO, rPath

Before leaving in 2016, Angela ran integrated marketing campaigns for Rackspace. She started in 2003 and did everything from Linux support, account management, sales, product marketing and marketing. She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement. Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.


  1. This sounds like a great discussion – sorry I’ll miss it.

    If you’re taking questions I’d love to read the panels’ take on Tony Lock’s definition of “Cloud Escrow”. (This is essentially the concept of “Cloud Portability” plus the ability to move part or all of your applications/data back to internal IT resources if conditions warrant.)
