Span Private and Public Clouds: Developing a Multi-Cloud Strategy with SDS

Presented by

Eric Carter, Sr. Director Product Management at Hedvig

About this talk

How can enterprise IT operate more like AWS? That is the defining technology question of the decade. Hyperscale computing models pioneered by AWS catapulted “cloud” to the top of the IT agenda. This model fuels digital business, creates tectonic shifts in IT spending, and upends legacy IT infrastructure vendors. But should today’s CIOs build or buy their own cloud? The simple answer: both. We live in a multi-cloud world. A hyperscale strategy balances digital services across private and public clouds. In this session we'll provide: -Lessons learned from building two of the world’s largest distributed systems: Amazon Dynamo and Facebook's Cassandra. -How to develop a multi-cloud strategy for modern data centers that accommodates both virtualized and containerized applications. -Where software-defined storage fits into this strategy to help data span cloud boundaries and avoid cloud lock-in.
