The data center relies on every layer of its infrastructure in order to be efficient, and successful. From power source and cooling to servers and virtualization, everything needs to work together. But it can be difficult to ensure that the data center is built all to the same standard, and as technology and needs move at different rates, implementing changes and updates is a real challenge. So discover how to design from the ground up and at every level at the Data Center Design Summit!
Software-defined is top of the CIO’s agenda in 2015, present throughout the data center, storage and network infrastructure, and the commitment required to achieve it requires total architecture and awareness. It is a great challenge, with high rewards, but there is also still a lot of confusion about what software-defined is, if it applies to you and how you can go about embarking on the first steps of your software defined journey. No matter what stage you’re at, you can get help during Software-Defined Week!
IT Infrastructure is not all about hardware, for many enterprises and businesses it’s to support the software that let’s your business function as it should. However, implementing Enterprise Software effectively can be costly, long and often can fail entirely if you aren’t prepared. Moreover, keeping the package up to date is a full time task.
Join this summit where industry experts will cover everything from ERP, CRM, EAM and database management to inclusive products like SAP, Oracle and Salesforce. Expect to leave with everything you need to keep your Enterprise Software and infrastructure together.
As IT organizations are driven to provide higher levels of service and improved storage efficiency, hyper-converged solutions have become a popular alternative with some but questions still remain.What makes hyper-converged so appealing? What environments are best suited for hyper-converged? And what products are currently on the market? Attend this summit to hear as experts address the key benefits, concerns, and considerations for this new offering.
IT infrastructure is constantly changing, but the data center can get left behind. As more and more data is created and more and more functions rely on the data center - from virtualization, storage, software-defined and applications - data center transformation is becoming essential, but where do you start? Join experts from around the world as they discuss how to transform the data center through virtualization, convergence, efficiency, sustainability and security in the Data Center Transformation Summit.
Solid State is changing everything in the IT data center. The promise of speed and efficiency, along with total cost of ownership, requires IT’s view of storage to adapt. Insights into how Solid State works, how to evaluate performance, and what is coming next is required in any IT adoption strategy. Join industry experts as they discuss what is here today, what is coming with future technology, and how to best determine your storage strategy.
Virtualization can effectively increase hardware efficiency and capacity, and it also functions as a base layer for new technologies like software-defined storage, networks and data centers. As such virtualization is becoming one of the most flexible, usable and essential assets in the enterprise’s arsenal, but keeping track of every virtualized function while deciding what to virtualize and when can be a massive challenge. So join virtualization experts as they discuss the ins and outs of Virtualization, CDI, NFV, Software-Defined and more and answer all your questions about the now ubiquitous technology layer.
From Google’s multi-colored pipes to Facebook’s arctic wind tunnel, data centers came into the foreground of the IT industry in 2014, but concerns came with them. Energy, efficiency and sustainability are on everybody’s lips and the power hungry, costly and mysterious data center is an easy target. So what is an efficient data center? From design, security, regulations, cloud and software defined, to hardware, wiring, cooling and power, attend the Efficient Data Center Summit to hear industry experts discuss everything about the future of data center efficiency in 2015.
Many consider the software-defined data center (SDDC) as the final evolution of virtualization. By having a virtual data center, you create ultimate reliability by abstracting applications from the data center infrastructure — easily transitioning application workloads from one data center to another from a single dashboard. But is this a reality today? How is it being used? And how do you transition from physical to all virtual without disrupting service? Join this summit as experts from around the world discuss the final step of virtualization, where the technology is today, where it could be tomorrow and how you can begin to develop your own software-defined data center.
