Speaker Offers Cloud Solutions

The chapter hosted Brian Vandegrift, executive vice president of ArkLaTex diamond sponsor Venyu, as its March luncheon guest speaker. Vandegrift has more than 15 years in technology consulting and certifications from Microsoft, Citrix and VMWare. As executive vice president, he leads and manages the Research and Development and Sales teams for Venyu, a Louisiana-based cloud services and data center provider with more than 1,000 customers. In his presentation, “Escape the IT Buying Cycle,” Vandegrift explained three emerging cloud paradigms and the friction between increasing data volume and diminishing capital to manage it. Among the opportunities to employ cloud solutions he discussed, Vandegrift showed how the cloud minimizes the consumption gap over traditional infrastructure life cycles and enables organizations to focus on their core mission rather than the hardware that supports it.
