451 Research, a division of The 451 Group focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation, announced today that its eight annual Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit - North America (HCTS-NA) will once again convene in Las Vegas. The event will take place September 18-20 at the Aria Resort. Over 700 IT executives, cloud decision-makers, vendors and investors will be in attendance.

 This year's theme "Raising the Stakes" will focus on the competition  among managed data center and hosting services providers and their strategies for market share. The managed data center and hosting services business pot is huge and multiple players are competing for a share.  "There are bets all over the table and at this year's HCTS NA, thought leaders from 451 Research and from key players in the industry will come together to discuss and debate where we are and where we are headed," said Simon Carruthers, 451 Research Executive Vice President and HCTS NA Conference Chair.
