VentureBeat x Supermicro and Intel®

About this talk

As cloud computing continues to accelerate worldwide, organizations are now deciding which model best serves their needs. Yes, the major public clouds can offer almost unlimited scalability, but users are limited to the hardware and software choices the cloud provider has made. This is where open clouds come in. Consisting of "open" components, these are tailored to an enterprise's specific needs in compute, storage, networking, and the software stack. A wide range of "instances" can be installed in an open data center, whether made available to internal or external customers, tailored to the needs of the enterprise. As a result, open clouds can reduce latencies to client device – improving customer and device (IoT) interactions. The latest innovations from the edge to the data center can be quickly brought on-line, and tuned to the exact requirements needed to maintain SLAs. But in making the best decision, you need to ensure three main components for success: the right hardware (the primary instruction set and binary compatibility); the best software stack; and the appropriate network choice. Join this VB Live event to learn more about the benefits of open clouds – and what’s needed to produce the best outcome. Attendees will learn: • Why an eco-system based on open standards can reduce costs and increase innovation • How to evaluate workloads • How a cloud based on open standards can easily be constructed • How open standards apply to hardware and software choices Speakers: - Keith Tanski, Chief Technology Officer, Optum - Rick Villars, Group Vice President, Worldwide Research, IDC - Stephen Watt, Distinguished Engineer, Red Hat - Michael McNerney, Vice President Marketing and Network Security, Supermicro - Joe Maglitta, Moderator, VentureBeat
