Security, Big Data & More At Startup Hot Seat

Four startups in security, big data, automation, and resource utilization will pitch their technologies at Interop Las Vegas.

Four enterprise IT startups have been chosen to participate in Startup Hot Seat at Interop Las Vegas, where they will pitch their companies and technologies to Interop attendees.

Each startup’s founder will have eight minutes to present to attendees and guest panelists. The founders must address three key questions in their presentations:

  • What does your product or service do?
  • How is it different from what’s currently available?
  • Why should anyone in the room take a chance on you?

Attendees and panelists will then have the opportunity to put the founders on the hot seat with tough questions about their technology, the competition, the company’s viability, and more.

This session is a unique opportunity for attendees to hear directly from new companies in the enterprise IT market, get insight into compelling new products, and find out if these offerings might make sense in their organizations. Startup Hot Seat is open to all Interop attendees.

The companies selected for Startup Hot Seat are:

6fusion

Presenter: John D. Cowan, Co-Founder and CEO

6fusion’s Workload Allocation Cube measures infrastructure consumption using normalized metrics to create a standard baseline that lets IT compare usage in premises and cloud infrastructures. By creating what 6fusion describes as an “apples-to-apples” measure, IT pros can compare resource use in their own data centers, in co-lo facilities, and in the cloud.

Distelli

Presenter: Rahul Singh, Founder and CEO

Distelli aims to simplify code deployment for software developers. Developers put agents on premises and cloud-based servers to streamline app deployment. The agents track software releases and changes, and enables rollback. Distelli also lets developers or operations organize servers by group, role, location, and so on.

LaunchKey

Presenter: Geoff Sanders, Co-Founder and CEO

LaunchKey is a platform for multi-factor authentication and authorization. Organizations can use employees’ mobile devices for out-of-band authorization to log in to applications and IoT devices and for physical access to restricted areas.

Metanautix

Presenter: Theo Vassilakis, Founder and CEO

Metanautix plays in the Big Data space. Its Quest software combines data from multiple sources to help organizations get insights from disparate silos. It supports standard SQL queries and can join data from both SQL and NoSQL sources.

Startup Hot Seat panelists include Alex Benik, partner at Battery Ventures; Douglas Murray, CEO of Big Switch Networks and a former Startup Hot Seat presenter; Sue Fogarty, editor in chief of Network Computing; and Tim Wilson, editor in chief and co-founder of Dark Reading.

Interop Las Vegas is April 27 through May 1. Register now to learn the latest technology developments, accelerate your career, and network with your peers in the IT community.
