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.
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.
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.
Virtualization has advanced significantly over the course of 2014. It not only remains inherent as a separator and effective layer above the physical layer of desktops and servers but for many it has also become the base layer for the latest most advanced technologies, such as software-defined data centres, networks and cloud computing. However the process of effectively virtualising desktops, servers and more is still difficult for IT departments and new advancements in traffic, mobile devices strain, security, and infrastructure make it more and more challenging. So how will you stay virtual? Find out in the desktop and server virtualization summit.
In the virtualized world of IT today, networking demands have skyrocketed. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is the latest architecture that is designed to bridge the gap in efficiency and complement existing virtualization and cloud computing processes set in place by IT organizations. However, not many are familiar with what SDN truly is, what type of environment would best benefit from its implementation and what security concerns does it pose. Attend this summit as leading industry analysts, thought leaders and associations share their unique perspectives on this software-defined trend.
With virtualization becoming an integral part of every enterprise’s IT infrastructure, the need for effective management and optimization of the virtualized environments is at an all-time high. Join experts from around the world as they share insight on the current trends and technologies in the industry, what to anticipate and avoid in the future and provide valuable tips on effective implementation of the latest virtualization solutions. Register now to discover the best ways of optimizing your virtualized environment to maximize the potential of your IT infrastructure.
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.
At first, servers and desktops were virtualized. Storage quickly followed, but unlike the two previous technologies, many did not understand the challenges and benefits or the various different types that are available. Attend this Summit to learn about how storage can be virtualized, what options are available and how all of this differs from software-defined storage.
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.
