Public vs Private vs Hybrid Cloud infrastructure –
Which One or None?
Speaker: Jesse Proudman, Founder and CTO, Bluebox
Dinner Event at the Seattle Yacht Club
Public, Private, and Hybrid Cloud infrastructure each have different strengths and weaknesses. The speaker will review these models and discuss scenarios where one of these three solutions may be a suitable solution along with situations where cloud infrastructure may not be the best solution.
Jesse Proudman founded Blue Box Group Inc. in 2003 to deliver reliable hosted infrastructure solutions. His leadership has been instrumental in driving the success of the company and helping Blue Box customers embrace the benefits of transitioning their operations to the cloud.
Jesse is a lifelong entrepreneur who began working in the technology industry designing websites for local companies at just 13 years old. While attending the University of Puget Sound, Jesse saw potential for a managed hosting solutions business focused on customer success and started Blue Box. Jesse attributes much of his own success, and success of the company, to the relationships he has built since that time.
Outside of work, Jesse spends time with his family in Seattle and is a fanatical car racer. Jesse is actively involved in his community guiding the next generation of young entrepreneurs through the University of Puget Sound Business Leadership, 9Mile Labs and University of Washington’s Entrepreneur mentorship programs. He was named to Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty Class and an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Regional Semifinalist in 2013.
