Ulitzer.com Named Exclusive "New Media" Sponsor of Cloud Expo

Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities for the 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo Are Now Available

Cloud Expo on Ulitzer

SYS-CON Events (http://events.sys-con.com) announced today that Ulitzer (www.Ulitzer.com) was named exclusive “new media” sponsor of the 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (www.CloudComputingExpo.com) which will take place November 2 – 3 – 4, 2009, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo is the leading global Cloud event in its third year. Over 200 corporate sponsors and 10,000 industry professionals participated in Cloud Computing Expo during the past two years, more than all other Cloud-related events put together.

This year’s West Coast conference theme is “Bringing the Economics of the Web to Enterprise IT Through Cloud Computing." The organizing principle of the 4th International Cloud Expo is that through an intensive 3-day schedule of keynotes, general and breakout sessions, attending delegates will be assured of leaving the Conference with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the Cloud, helping them to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the scale of their endeavors.


Ulitzer is a "new media" social journalism platform which revolutionizes how we create, deliver, and consume content on the Web. Ulitzer authors can get started with their first article in a few minutes and may start a new “topic” on any subject or write a story and post it both to their Ulitzer author page and to any existing Ulitzer topic. The network effect of people using Ulitzer to communicate and collaboratively produce and categorize content is disruptive, bypassing traditional media and middle-men. Topics published on Ulitzer range from Greek Isles in the Summer to New Media via Personal Branding and Marketing & Sales.

4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo Keynotes

Cloud Computing Expo keynotes will be delivered by Richard Marcello, Unisys President of Systems & Technology; Shelton Shugar, Yahoo! SVP Cloud Computing; and Richard Sarwal, Oracle VP of Development for Enterprise Manager.
