ATLANTA, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Asankya today announced that company President and CEO Scott Ryan will be speaking on "The Growth of Government Clouds" as part of the Cloud Computing Track at the first Government IT Conference & Expo October 6 at 9:40 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.


Ryan will address session delegates as to the importance of adopting an efficient approach to cloud computing by solving real-world problems of performance, consistency and security through the adoption of cloud acceleration technologies. He will provide insight into the technologies that provide high-speed delivery of Internet-based applications as well as the methods to deploy them within the government to effectively remove the barriers to adoption of Internet computing.

"With cloud computing being named by the Obama administration as an evolutionary step of government technology, many IT administrators working in the public space need to quickly get up to speed as to how they can securely store and deliver mission-critical information to and from the cloud," said Ryan. "We have been working with government entities for more than two years providing the fast and secure movement of two-way application data in the field and between agency sites. I look forward to discussing how we've been able to improve performance and delivery speeds while maintaining the security and application independence agencies require through the implementation of cloud acceleration."

GovITExpo is a one-day event examining the ways that Internet-based technologies are changing the way that federal agencies leverage, procure and utilize IT. Built upon the success of SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, this technical program addresses major themes of data storage, security and software services.
