Media Alert: Pertino Participates in Open Networking User Group

Pertino Delivers SDN-Powered Cloud Networks That Allow SMBs to Build Enterprise-Class Networks in Minutes That Connect People and IT Resources From Anywhere

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- Pertino, a company reinventing networking for the cloud era, today announced its participation in The Open Networking User Group in Boston, Mass. The company will demonstrate its revolutionary new service that leverages the transformative power of cloud, Software-defined Network (SDN), and virtualization technologies to deliver enterprise-class networking capabilities to small-to-medium businesses. Pertino's cloud network engine makes it possible for businesses of any size to instantly create secure networks that connect people anywhere to the information and applications they need to be productive. Pertino is available now on a select set of computing devices with additional devices being added throughout 2013.

The Open Network User Group, hosted by Fidelity Investments and Nick Lippis of The Lippis Report, is the networking industry's first meeting for IT executives, global network architects and designers to increase the awareness and gain momentum of the emerging SDN trend.

Pertino was co-founded by networking veterans, including CEO Craig Elliott. Elliott spent 10 years at Apple in network-related senior product, marketing and general management roles. After Apple, he became the CEO of Packeteer where, under his leadership, the company created and led application-intelligent WAN performance and optimization market.

About Pertino
Founded in 2011, Pertino had an inspired vision for reinventing networking for the cloud era, and in the process, being a catalyst for democratizing IT for small-to-medium businesses. Globalization, cloud-enabled IT, and growing demand for always-connected people, devices, and things is affecting businesses of all sizes -- making the "outside network" as critical as the inside one. However, traditional wide-area networks have not kept pace. Pertino is a revolutionary cloud network engine that enables any business to build a simple and secure cloud-based network that connects people and IT resources from anywhere on the planet. No new hardware. No expertise. No upfront investment. To achieve this breakthrough, Pertino has developed a software platform that combines the power and pervasiveness of the cloud with Software-defined Network (SDN) and network virtualization technology, and a social-inspired user management paradigm. The company is headquartered in Los Gatos, Calif. and is funded by Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners.

About Open Networking User Group
The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is made up of IT leaders from Fidelity Investments, Goldman Sachs, UBS and Gap Inc. This board that Nick Lippis of Lippis Enterprises manages created the ONUG meeting sessions. No equipment vendors are speaking or allowed to attend the conference, therefore, speakers and attendance is exclusively IT executives, financial and industry analyst. This meeting was designed to have plenty of social time and demonstration interaction. The ONUG board has selected a small group of companies to show their technology in the demonstration area.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
