What You Need To Know About This Special Online Event

The data center as we knew it is a dinosaur. Gone are the days of strict rigidity and of applications running in impenetrable fortresses nestled inside the bowels of corporate HQ. Today, enterprise IT architecture is scattered across the land, with pockets existing inside an organization’s borders, but, increasingly expanding to new lands, in the form of the hybrid cloud.

The scattering of the application environment has created brand new opportunities for the business but has also created significant new challenges and raised new questions. For example, how do you ensure security in this emerging paradigm? What kinds of resource options do you have for servers, storage, networking, virtualization, etc? How do I ensure that my critical application workloads remain protected, regardless of where they operate? How do I simplify this beast so that I can manage it in a cost-effective way? How can this new paradigm help me discover new tools that can help me accelerate my business? How do I enable users and help my organization’s transformation efforts?

Important questions deserve comprehensive answers!

Service Provider Cloud Trends: Key Insights into how & why service providers are building a hybrid multi-cloud experience for their customers. 1:55-2:15PM

Being all in on the public cloud is not the end state. Enterprises are now realizing that their diverse applications need different and diverse infrastructure. Whether the application/data resides on premises, in colocation, in the service provider infrastructure or in the hyperscale cloud, enterprises now understand that managing where the data lives is very complex and that they need help managing it. Innovative service providers are taking steps to manage the data no matter where it needs to live, creating the requirement that the underlying network be simplified and diverse and span all four data locations. This presentation will share insights and considerations for enterprises looking to build their own hybrid multi-cloud experience.
