Dyn, CloudCamp Team Up for First-Ever Cloudy Awards in Austin, TX

GY&K Collaborates as Supporting Marketing Partner

MANCHESTER, NH Dyn, a leading provider of managed DNS services, and CloudCamp, an unconference for early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies, recently announced their collaboration to host the first ever Cloudy Awards (#CloudyAwards) at the Dyn 138 Listening Lounge in Austin, TX on Tuesday, March 15 to coincide with South by Southwest Interactive (#SXSWi).

“We are extremely excited to team up with CloudCamp for this unique event, where innovative technology meets emerging music,” said Kyle York, VP, Sales & Marketing at Dyn. “The moment we left Austin last year, we began scheming about capitalizing on the energy in 2011. We have a venue locked down, a schedule finalized and several Dyn reps amped to touch down in Texas next week.”

The Cloudy Awards at the Dyn 138 Listening Lounge (#Dyn138LL) will celebrate today’s innovators of technology, while showcasing an impressive lineup of emerging musicians and alumni of the popular 138 Listening Lounge, an invitation-only live music venue based in a private residence in New Hampshire. The lineup of artists set to take the stage in Texas includes Hoots and Hellmouth, Jay Nash, Miracle Parade, Quiet Life, Kelley McRae, Elk and Boar and Albert Aguilar.

“Together, The Cloudy Awards & 138 Listening Lounge will highlight the contributions that music and technology bring to our lives,” said Dave Nielsen, CloudCamp Co-Founder. “I am just thrilled to be working with our friends at Dyn to bring this celebration of music, innovation and Cloud Computing to Austin.”

Marketing partner Griffin York & Krause’s (GY&K) own desire to collaborate on positioning, packaging and promoting technology brands and develop its own unique and innovative technology properties are driving forces behind this collaboration with Dyn and CloudCamp.

“We are excited to be the marketing company teaming up with a leader in technology infrastructure and an organization that celebrates cloud computing,” said Travis York, President of GY&K.  “Our team believes in collaboration across industries, and that a deeper understanding of emerging technology will help us develop the innovative solutions that make our clients more successful. There’s no better time than this week in Austin, TX to throw music in the mix and round out this collaboration.”
