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.
2016 has been the breakout year for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). No longer a niche, sci-fi pipe-dream, AR and VR have exploded onto the scene with accessible consumer headsets and unprecedented levels of hype developed by apps such as Pokemon Go.
The AR/VR industry is forecast to hit $120 billion in 2020, overtaking mobile and the next few years will be crucial to establish that continued growth.
So which areas of life are most likely to be most positively disrupted? Where we see the most exciting technological developments? Which new and revolutionary applications will we discover to help aid business functions? Are we entering a brave new world or will the meteoric rise of AR & VR burn itself out in a matter of years?
All these questions and more will be answered by the industry-leading selection of speakers arranged for this BrightTALK Summit.
As storage resources become increasingly distributed and virtualized, architectures need to adapt. Join thought leaders from the storage and virtualization industries for a deeper look into development and implementation of these forward-thinking technologies.
Software-defined will continue to occupy priority status of the CIO’s agenda in 2016-2017. This technology, present throughout Data Centers, Storage and Networking, is challenging to adopt and implement, but can provide organizations with high rewards. The SDDC industry will be worth an estimated $77 billion by 2020, but many organizations are still struggling to transition from traditional data centers. Join this summit to learn the best ways to achieve this from industry leading vendors, thought leaders and associations.
Augmented & Virtual Reality technologies are already starting to become more and more entrenched in today's modern world. How can they be used to improve business and educational processes, and how will they impact our lives day to day?
Which of the ideas will become viable products? Will any of the technologies make it to market? Is the space as game-changing as the hype makes it out to be?
All these questions and more will be answered by our industry-leading invited thought leaders. We've arranged a heavy-hitting line up of progressive and engaging speakers, with experience from the front lines of the AR/VR space.
Register now to tune in to the discussion and join the debate on the future of AR/VR for yourself.
Software-defined technologies are enabling organizations to move forward at a rapid pace. Join this interactive summit to hear experts provide insights into the latest software-defined technology, as well as the noteworthy changes in flash, memory and server hardware architecture that can be leveraged by that software.
After years of IT departments scrambling to adapt to cloud technologies, most organizations have implemented cloud and virtual technologies of some sort. Now, it is time for strategic cloud initiatives to make the biggest business impacts. From building next-generation applications to utilizing the right CSB to scaling your data center and more, join industry thought leaders in a discussion on the newest cloud and virtualization developments. Wrapping up the summit is a highly-anticipated presentation by keynote speaker Neil McEvoy, CEO of Cloud Best Practices Network. Neil will be discussing enterprise cloud native applications, how to manage them, and what's next in the industry. Tune in to find out more!
As IT infrastructure innovations and technologies continue to improve, organisations need to make sure the data centre isn’t left
behind. In this climate, data centre transformation is becoming essential, but with different technologies and approaches, where
do you start? Join experts and leading vendors from around the world as they explore how organisations can transform the data
center through virtualization, convergence, efficiency, sustainability and security in this two-day summit.
Throughout 2015 Virtualization is proving its place within the infrastructure and the efficiency it can bring to servers, data centres, workspaces and more. Software-defined solutions are pushing the technology to its next level. However virtualization needs to be efficient at every level in order to be effective. So join this summit and discover how to optimize your virtual environments and solutions and keep your organisation efficient.
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, its implementation poses risks and security concerns. Attend this summit as leading industry analysts, thought leaders and associations share their unique perspectives on this software-defined trend.
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.
