HostingCon 2014 Conference Recap

Jul 25, 2014

Last month, members of the Data Foundry team made their way to Miami Beach for the 2014 HostingCon Conference. HostingCon is the premier industry conference for hosting and cloud providers where attendees can learn about the latest news, ideas and technology affecting their businesses. During the three day conference there were several educational sessions offered including a general session panel that included Data Foundry’s Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Ron Yokubaitis. The session titled, “The Post Snowden World One Year Later: What Has Changed?” drew one of the largest crowds during the conference. Ron, along with an impressive panel of five additional industry experts, shared unique perspectives around privacy and how the Internet infrastructure industry, must collaborate with others who have a stake in its success to show the world that the United States takes privacy seriously.

In addition to being featured during the Tuesday General Session, Data Foundry was right in the middle of the action in the exhibit hall during HostingCon. We had the pleasure of networking with a multitude of attendees including some of our long-standing clients. Discussions included everything from basic information about Data Foundry’s history to our services offered and the construction of our newest purpose-built data center in North Houston. We had a very productive time in Miami and look forward to seeing everyone again at HostingCon 2015!
