Curtis Brown is a technology leader with over 20 years of experience across a range of media, Internet and education-technology driven businesses and has an extensive background in building and managing large web sites and technical teams. An Internet pioneer, Brown built and launched one of the first music e-commerce sites, MusicBoulevard/CDNow, back in 1995. In addition to AOL, he has held the title of CTO at Skymall, Oxygen Media, The Princeton Review, CTB/McGraw-Hill and Kaplan.

AbstractAt AOL, the demand for scalability often competes with the need for cost savings, power efficiency and faster deployments. Given the complexity of AOL’s technical systems this dilemma is not simply solved by cloud computing. Our micro data centers solve these problems and more.

The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is also available.
