Bitnami COO and Co-Founder Erica Brescia to Speak at OpenStack® Summit in Tokyo

Bitnami, a leading provider of ready-to-run server applications and development environments, to lead the conversation on “Banishing the Shadow Cloud” at this year’s OpenStack Summit in Tokyo, Japan, October 27-30, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 26, 2015 — Bitnami COO and Co-Founder, Erica Brescia, will share insights into the most important cloud features, rates of public cloud, application adoption and success behind banishing the shadow cloud during her session on October 27, 2015, at 10:00 a.m.

“Interest in both public clouds and private clouds like OpenStack is growing at a rapid pace. But many private cloud deployments are undermined by a user experience that doesn’t match that provided by public clouds,” said Erica Brescia, COO of Bitnami. “By improving the experience, particularly the ease of cloud application deployment, OpenStack operators can reduce the leakage and banish the shadow cloud.”
