Cbeyond and Microsoft Partner to Conduct Cloud Best Practices Event in South Florida

Cbeyond Inc. (NASDAQ: CBEY), a leading provider of cloud and network services to small and medium sized businesses, will conduct a complimentary breakfast seminar on Thursday, June 28, 2012, at Microsoft’s Ft. Lauderdale, Florida office. The event, “Security in the Cloud on Your Terms,” will provide attendees with best practices for leveraging cloud solutions while ensuring data remains secure and compliant.

“Transitioning to the cloud presents a range of unique challenges for businesses, but also a great opportunity to improve efficiency, reduce costs and enhance security,” said Fred White, senior director of cloud services project management at Cbeyond. “We are thrilled to partner with Microsoft to share insight that will help businesses strengthen their overall cloud-enabled IT capabilities and realize the benefits the cloud provides.”

During “Security in the Cloud on Your Terms,” Sarah Barela, manager of database services at Cbeyond, will join Keith Keeler, a partner engagement manager in Microsoft’s Partner Hosting and Cloud Services division, to outline practical steps businesses can take to ensure critical applications, namely the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 platform, are secure in the cloud. The event’s timing coincides with the beginning of the hurricane season and, to that end, will address the importance of securing data in the cases of natural and man-made disasters.

SQL Server 2012 is a cloud-ready platform which empowers businesses to quickly build solutions and extend data across on-premises and public clouds, backed by best-in-class availability and performance. Additionally, the platform enables users to develop and connect private clouds to SQL server databases for greater flexibility, security and control over where data lives.

Cbeyond also recently announced the limited release of Windows Server 2012 beta, the industry’s first cloud-compatible server. Windows Server 2012 provides IT professionals and developers the flexibility to deploy current and existing applications and websites on-premises, in the cloud, or both. Cbeyond also has made its SQL Server Support services available to end users. The SQL Server Support program provides interaction with virtual database administrators to ensure mission-critical data storage and retrieval workloads are operating with maximum performance.
