OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing providers of data center facilities and cloud services, and a leader in security and compliance, will present and exhibit at the VMworld 2014 US conference in San Francisco, August 24 – 28, 2014.
QTS will present sessions related to cloud computing for federal agencies with its partner HyTrust. HyTrust is the exclusive provider of virtual security appliances for QTS' Enterprise Cloud and Federal Cloud, which are based on the VMware vCloud® Suite and launched earlier this year.
QTS will present two breakout sessions, the first of which is a panel discussion entitled, "The Keys to a Secure and Compliant Federal Cloud" (SEC2680). This will focus on cloud security within federal agencies and FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) compliance. The panel will discuss the key considerations, building blocks and challenges involved when deploying a secure and compliant Federal Cloud offering.
The second presentation, "The On-Ramp to FedRAMP" (SDDC2633), will be a case study outlining the partnership created by QTS and HyTrust, which resulted in a successful Federal Cloud design that adheres to the rigorous FedRAMP compliance standard. The session will walk through the implementation and roll-out of the QTS Federal Cloud and cover key best practices for the Federal workload.
The VMworld 2014 US conference will bring together leaders in business and technology. VMware experts and executives share knowledge, successes and inspiration from the past year. The conference will host in-depth, hands-on training and the latest innovations in the data center industry for storage, networking, security, hybrid cloud services and more. QTS will exhibit at the show in booth number 447.
"VMworld 2014 US is one of the most anticipated conferences in the IT industry and we are looking forward to presenting with HyTrust," said Jim Reinhart, Chief Operating Officer, Development and Operations of QTS. "Our partnership with HyTrust is key to our commitment to being an industry leader in security and compliance."
"Companies continually list security as a primary concern preventing cloud adoption," said Eric Chiu, president and co-founder of HyTrust. "The investment that QTS has made to ensure security and compliance to meet FedRAMP and protect its customers is impressive. We look forward to sharing our joint insights at VMworld 2014."
