Citrix at the Cloud Connect ConferenceLove will be in the air – well, in the cloud more specifically – next week in Santa Clara at the Cloud Connect Conference, and there’s no doubt Valentine’s Day sparks will be flying at the Citrix booth!

Ok, well, sparks may not be flying, but we’re excited to showcase some of our latest cloud products and share our vision for cloud computing with many of you. Be sure to stop by our lovely booth (#509) to:

  • Learn more about CloudStack, CloudBridge and CloudPortal
  • Discover how you can virtualize your datacenter, build your own cloud and seamlessly connect to public cloud services.
  • Discuss how enterprise and cloud computing really do go hand in hand

Don’t have a date to the big event? Don’t worry. Along with our booth and several speaking sessions, we have some fun events planned that we’re sure you will love:

Lunch & Learn: Your Cloud Starts Here

Not only are we opening up our hearts next week, but also the doors to Citrix. Join us Feb. 14 or 15 from 12:30 – 2 p.m. at the Citrix Conference Center (located right across the street from Santa Clara Convention Center) to learn how the world’s most innovative and successful clouds are designed and managed.

Of course like any good date, the meal is on us. Plus, at each Lunch & Learn event we’ll raffle away one pass for a VIP experience in the Citrix Suite at the SAP Open Tennis Tournament.

Register for the Feb. 14 Lunch & Learn session.

Register for the Feb. 15 Lunch & Learn session.
