We are very excited to announce the first annual meet-up for Pro Softnet‘s partners, developers and media friends – Cloud.e 2011 – to be held on August 31 in Palo Alto, CA in the beautiful Four Seasons Silicon Valley Ballroom. Registration is free and lunch will be provided! We’ll be joined by Zane Alsabery, CEO of Alchemy Communications, who will discuss the relationship between disaster recovery and “the cloud.” We’ll also be hosting workshops, talking about new products and having a Partner Exchange, where IDrive, IBackup and RemotePC affiliate partners can take the opportunity to meet with each other. And, of course: awesome swag and prizes!

Calling all partners!

If you’re one of our valued partners, this event will be your opportunity to dive into our products with our technicians, participate in workshops to learn more about IDrive’s mobile access features or IBackup’s advanced database storage options (and more!), and our partners have been asking for the chance to talk to other Pro Softnet partners about their successes, stories and best-practices; to that end we’ll be having an hour-long Partner Exchange and Q&A session where we do just that – we’re very excited about what we will learn and the ideas we will get!

Calling all developers!

If you’re a developer, our CEO, Raghu Kulkarni, will be demonstrating our newest set of API tools and will be talking about utilizing IBackup as a platform for cloud computing. Learn how to leverage our 15-petabyte cloud to provide world-class speed and reliability with your applications.

Calling all media! Customers too!

Our media friends and customers are also invited, we hope you will join us so we can say thank you for your support in person. We’ll be talking about upcoming products and features so this will be a great chance to get the first glimpse of what we’ve got planned.
