Your Head in the Clouds - Focus on DC Expansion

When it comes to expanding your infrastructure capacity, cloud has a considerable reputation for being quick, easy and cost effective. In reality, IT professionals know that the implications around expansion into the cloud are wide, complex and often unknown.

In over 100 cloud engagements, John Easton, Cloud Advisor and IBM Distinguished Engineer, has seen that success depends on understanding the business objectives, planning against those objectives - and using the right technology to deliver. Join John in conversation with Richard Appleby, Cloud Advisor as they discuss the steps successful organisations take when they need to expand quickly and easily into the cloud.

  • Drive performance for your HPC workloads in the Cloud Recorded: Mar 9 2016 50 mins
    Jerry Gutierrez (Global HPC Sales Leader at IBM SoftLayer) & Danny Kieran (BDM Head, Nvidia)
    Many applications that are solving the world’s most challenging problems are running complex workloads that need high performance computing (HPC). Learn how these applications can actually work smarter and faster when they’re run in the cloud.

    This webinar is designed for CTOs, IT architects, information systems directors, content directors, programmers, researchers, and analysts who need to process large volumes of data.

    We’ll explore how cloud infrastructure makes high performance computing (HPC) easy to use, cost effective, and accessible. You’ll also learn how SoftLayer’s powerful bare metal servers featuring NVIDIA GPU cards are ideal for:

    Data mining
    Numerical analysis
    Video processing
    Electronic design automation
    3D video modeling
    Rendering
    Transcoding
    Bio-informatics & medical imaging
  • Rendering in the cloud Recorded: Mar 2 2016 55 mins
    George Dolbier, IBM CTO Social & Interactive Media
    As workloads in media and entertainment—such as film rendering, game development, postproduction, visual effects, and animation—continue to grow in size and geographic location, there is a need for a scalable, global cloud computing environments to manage, collaborate on, and store media data. Brought to you by SoftLayer IBM Cloud, this webinar is designed for CTOs, information systems directors, systems engineers and administrators. You’ll learn about the advantages of moving media and entertainment workloads to the cloud and the initial steps and technical insights of creating render-ready, hybrid cloud infrastructure.
  • How secure is your cloud? Recorded: Nov 10 2015 49 mins
    Karna Bojjireddy, Product Manager, Security Softlayer, IBM Cloud. Shawn Mullen, Cloud Architect, IBM Cloud
    Security is the number 1 inhibitor for most organizations looking to move to the cloud. Privileged user access, data location, data residency, boundary control, regulatory compliance, data segregation, IT support are some of the key security concerns. SoftLayer is the first cloud company to offer Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel®TXT) as an additional method to secure customer’s infrastructure, down to the chip level. Organizations can simply take advantage of all that cloud has to offer for a growing set of workloads and data sets and feel even more safe that their data is secure and meeting their security and compliance needs.
