About this talk

Virtualization has been around for quite a while. Now might be a good time to review what you’re doing from a data perspective. Classic hardware virtualization has been the key to consolidation efficiencies and savings. Now data virtualization can provide similar benefits in a different way. A modern data strategy should consider the benefits and costs of data virtualization. Some people are surprised to find out that hardware virtualization is not the end of the story, that there is data virtualization as well. In this webinar we’ll take a look at how having the right data strategy can improve the way you provide value to business operations by making data more available by reducing siloes and reducing the amount of management required. Join Erik Ottem, Senior Director, Data Center Systems at Western Digital Corporation, as he shares tips on how to get the most from a virtualized environment from a data perspective. In this webinar you’ll learn: - Data Strategy: Why organizations must start with a data strategy; the business value of building a data strategy and aligning infrastructure planning with that strategy - Shifting from Hardware Virtualization to Data Virtualization: Why viewing your virtualization strategy from a different lens is imperative to driving a competitive business advantage - Cost Savings: How implementing a data strategy can help you spend less on both building and managing data infrastructure - Virtualization-Worthy Data: How to identify what data is better housed in a virtual environment; including identifying the single source of truth (Golden Copy) and managing data quality - Case Study: we’ll take a look at how data virtualization can work in the real world and the benefits that have been realized.
