Hug Your Servers Goodbye

Sponsored Sessions
Location: 1A01 Level:

Small businesses and large organizations alike are wiping out server infrastructure and going the service route. The trend toward NoMoreServers is gaining momentum. Server huggers should give their servers one last hug because hosting and cloud computing service providers are becoming the largest purchasers of servers. This session will explain how your business can kiss your server closet goodbye. Business SaaS application firms are encouraged to attend in addition to business executives.

Andy has been the go-to analyst in the hosting industry since its inception in the late 1990s. From his beginnings at Piper Jaffray where he developed and managed the VoIP industry’s primary market statistics, Schroepfer published a 270-page report on the dis-aggregation of communications, which sparked his coverage of the Web hosting industry. He then joined Goldman Sachs as VP and Senior Equity Analyst on the Internet Infrastructure Services industry during the time when Equinix, Loudcloud (now HP), and Webex (now Cisco) were executing their IPOs. In late 2000, Schroepfer founded, led, and later sold Tier 1 Research, the leading specialist research firm on the hosting and data center industry.
Before joining Rackspace, Mr. Schroepfer was a technology investor and founded, an archiving firm for business use of social media applications like Facebook (/Schroepfer) and Twitter (@shrepfur).
