TORONTO, Calif., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudcor Inc™, the premier Cloud Computing event organizer, today announced that Spirent Communications has been selected to deliver a headline keynote address at CloudSlam'10™, a virtual cloud computing event taking place March 23 - 25, 2010. Jurrie Van Den Breekel from Spirent will deliver the presentation titled "A Billion Served" on March 25 at 6:30 pm (EDT).

"Spirent is a proven world leader in data center performance testing and validation making their insight on the marketplace invaluable to our attendees."

Cloud computing is the new "killer" platform that takes service providers and enterprises into the age of network services capable of infinite scale. As an example, a few thousand servers with hundreds of cloud services could serve one billion or more users or end devices. Delivering services at this scale is now possible with multi-core processing, virtualization and high speed Ethernet. However, even today the mix of implementing these technologies requires careful considerations in network infrastructure design. This presentation by Jurrie Van Den Breekel will address the challenges of the network infrastructure enabling cloud services at infinite scale.

"What happens in the cloud impacts every one of us and Spirent is on the forefront of addressing the performance issues of cloud computing environments," said David Hill, Spirent vice president for EMEA. "Spirent is pleased to be involved with the CloudSlam'10™ initiative."
