“The Cloud Expo organizers have supported us very well, not least by helping us maintain our ‘stealth’ anonymity until today’s announcement," continued Malcolm.

He added:

"I can’t think of a better place to articulate our vision, including how we believe there is a need to move beyond the hype and to set out a clear roadmap of how Cloud computing evolves – practically as well as theoretically. This isn’t just about technology. It’s more about how the way IT organizations operate and service their users, and how this is going to fundamentally change over the next few years."

Malcolm will be delivering the conference Day Three keynote: “An Open Cloud Ecosystem: The Gathering Storm.”

Cloud Expo is regarded as the world’s top Cloud computing conference and will feature more than 5,000 delegates and over 100 sponsors and exhibitors. The event attendees will see the first public demonstration of Abiquo’s revolutionary version 1.5 at Booth 107 on the show floor. This new version of the Abiquo solution, announced on March 23, is the first product to allow IT managers to automatically convert virtual machine images built for any one hypervisor technology to any other hypervisor, including the conversion from VMware to Microsoft Hyper-V, through a single drag-and-drop operation.
