Nirvanix CEO Patrick Harr to Participate on Content Delivery Network Panel
Patrick Harr, CEO of Nirvanix, the premier "Cloud Storage" platform provider, will be a featured panelist on the session "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About CDNs (But Were Afraid To Ask)" at the O'Reilly Velocity Web Performance & Operations Conference June 23 at 1:00 p.m. in Salon E of the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, Calif.
The 45-minute presentation brings together an expert group of both vendors and major users to address misconceptions of Content Delivery Networks, explain how they work and how they differ, and why they are key to web site performance. Harr will explain to attendees how the benefits of adopting a Storage Delivery Network in conjunction with a CDN strategy can save money, yet greatly extend the tail of content online and provide better user experience online overall.
"The Velocity Conference is an excellent venue for sharing our views on how media, entertainment and Web 2.0 companies will increasingly benefit from the economics, performance and global on-demand scale of cloud storage like the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network," said Harr. "The SDN has been supporting new delivery models at breakthrough economics and with these data points I will join the panel discussion. An interesting partnership announcement we are expected to make that morning should prove to make a provocative discussion."
Velocity is designed to deliver the best information on building and operating web sites that are fast, scalable, reliable and highly available. The two-day conference brings together more than 600 web developers and experts who are doing the best performance work to improve the experience of web users worldwide. Two practical, highly technical tracks cover the key aspects of Web Performance and Operations in depth while an Exhibit Hall features dozens of the latest tools and products.

About The Storage Delivery Network
Nirvanix has built a global cluster of storage nodes collectively referred to as the Storage Delivery Network (SDN), powered by the Nirvanix Internet Media File System (IMFS). The SDN intelligently stores, delivers and processes storage requests in the best network location, providing the best user experience in the marketplace. With the ability to store multiple file copies in multiple geographic nodes, the SDN enables unparalleled data availability for developers, businesses and enterprises.
By using the Nirvanix SDN versus alternatives such as adding network storage systems or using first generation online storage platforms, businesses are guaranteed a shorter time-to-market, reduced costs, and also benefit from better flexibility and control for their operations.
