Welcome to the virtualization community on BrightTALK! Whether it affects servers, storage, networks, desktops or other parts of the data center, virtualization provides real benefits by reducing the resources needed for your
infrastructure and creating software-defined data center components. However, it can also complicate your infrastructure. Join this active community to learn best
practices for avoiding virtual machine sprawl and other common virtualization pitfalls as well as how you can make the most of your virtualization environment.
The network infrastructure is the backbone of the data center and it's importance can't be overstated. As cloud computing and virtualization transform how we imagine IT, the network is finally seeing its own technological revolution with software-defined networking, network function virtualization, 10 gbe, FCoE and more. Join us as we celebrate the network with three days of content from everything from infrastructure to security and more to learn how and why it's time to take your network to the next level.
As we move out of the year of software-defined everything, it has become clear that virtualization is essential to the process. Serving as a foundation for anything from data centers, application migrations, cloud implementation and workplace management, the need to virtualize your organization just to stay ahead is clear. Join this summit to hear experts from around the world cover everything from BYOD, service virtualization and SDN to emerging trends like Network Functions Virtualization and SDx. Register now to connect with industry professionals and discover how to best virtualize your environment to stay ahead of the competition.
With the promise of higher agility and cost reduction to your network management, software-defined networking is proving to be a disruptive force in the networking and telecommunications industries. As this emerging technology continues to expand, many are quickly jumping on the bandwagon without really understanding what SDN is. Attend this summit as industry experts examine the fundamentals of SDN and the challenges and benefits for using this technology to improve your operational efficiency.
Join the discussion at BrightTALK’s annual Cloud Week, topics include cloud infrastructure, cloud security, cloud services and governance and compliance in the cloud. Attendees will benefit from a mixture of practical content, strategic overview and analysis on the most innovative cloud trends and use cases from the leading speakers across the cloud industry.
You know what the cloud is and the benefits it can provide. But implementation of the cloud and integration with legacy platforms and applications can be confusing and a hassle for even the most qualified cloud expert. Join this summit as experts and thought leaders discuss their own cloud implementations – from Infrastructure-as-a-Service to a multi-cloud provider hybrid cloud -- and the integration projects to make a seamless transition to the cloud without affecting business service delivery.
If you thought deciding on and implementing a virtualization and cloud strategy was difficult, you haven’t seen anything yet. Managing and optimizing an infrastructure that self-heals, automates workflows and provides continuous service as well as proving the ROI really exists is the real challenge IT departments are facing today. Join this two-day summit as experts and visionaries from around the world share their proudest moments and darkest hours when dealing with their own virtualization and cloud projects and what it will take to truly create a software-defined data center.
Desktops are no longer one-dimensional. They can be mobile, virtualized or even hosted in the cloud for far cheaper and simpler than ever before. But does this make sense for your organization? Join this summit as desktop virtualization experts discuss the pros and cons of Desktops-as-a-Service, VDI and more to create the right desktop model for your business.
With the proliferation of cloud and virtualization, many have already seen the benefits that it can bring to the enterprise data center. Though the increased efficiency, agility and low cost benefits are evident, the backbone to this success is having a strong service management strategy in place to manage these environments. Attend this summit to hear how industry experts have leveraged service management to optimize virtualization and cloud to better control the overall IT infrastructure and maximize business outcomes.
Eighty-four percent of surveyed companies experienced problems with power, cooling, capacity, assets and uptime that negatively impacted the business, according to a recent IDC survey. This is a problem as more and more end-users expect unparalleled service reliability from their services. But it's a problem that can solved. Attend this two-day summit as industry experts discuss the various methods to adequately deploy and manage your infrastructure's energy efficiency, data center design, storage optimization, virtualization and cloud projects to transform your data center for the future.
