Nirvanix CEO Patrick Harr to Participate on Content Delivery Network Panel

Will Present His Views on Best Practices for Quickly, Easily Integrating Media Storage, Delivery into Applications
O’Reilly Velocity Web Performance & Operations Conference

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Patrick Harr, CEO of Nirvanix, the premier “Cloud Storage” platform provider, will be a featured panelist on the session “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About CDNs (But Were Afraid To Ask)” at the O’Reilly Velocity Web Performance & Operations Conference June 23 at 1:00 p.m. in Salon E of the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, Calif.

The 45-minute presentation brings together an expert group of both vendors and major users to address misconceptions of Content Delivery Networks, explain how they work and how they differ, and why they are key to web site performance. Harr will explain to attendees how the benefits of adopting a Storage Delivery Network in conjunction with a CDN strategy can save money, yet greatly extend the tail of content online and provide better user experience online overall.

“The Velocity Conference is an excellent venue for sharing our views on how media, entertainment and Web 2.0 companies will increasingly benefit from the economics, performance and global on-demand scale of cloud storage like the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network,” said Harr. “The SDN has been supporting new delivery models at breakthrough economics and with these data points I will join the panel discussion. An interesting partnership announcement we are expected to make that morning should prove to make a provocative discussion.”

Velocity is designed to deliver the best information on building and operating web sites that are fast, scalable, reliable and highly available. The two-day conference brings together more than 600 web developers and experts who are doing the best performance work to improve the experience of web users worldwide. Two practical, highly technical tracks cover the key aspects of Web Performance and Operations in depth while an Exhibit Hall features dozens of the latest tools and products.
