Data is now created and consumed from more sources than ever, and with IoT and Edge computing this is even more so. The challenge is no longer how to make cloud computing central to the IT strategy, but is now about avoiding lock-ins, and keeping costs at bay while giving access to an increasing number of applications, devices and users — all dispersed across the globe on different clouds and networks.
As the great migration to cloud is fully underway, organizations are now moving from cloud-first strategies to multi-cloud, and they seek solutions allowing access and the ability to process data quickly at reasonable costs, no matter where data is created or consumed.
The goals are to build a tailored cloud made of best-of-breed “Cloud 2.0” solutions while removing any form of lock-in, and to outperform in terms of performance and cost what is currently available from established market vendors. But how can you build a new cloud model such as this one? There’s a host of disruptive Cloud 2.0 companies that provide Alternative Cloud Strategies built on Best-of-Breed Solutions, including Wasabi and Packet, our featured guests in this webinar.
Moderated by GigaOm analyst David Linthicum and co-presented with Enrico Signoretti and special guests, SVP of Product at Wasabi Jim Donovan and SVP of Engineering at Packet, Nathan Goulding. In this one-hour GigaOm webinar we’ll be discussing how to overcome the limits and lock-ins imposed by traditional approaches, and how to lay the next-gen infrastructure for today’s and tomorrow’s applications and data. We will look specifically at cloud strategies and how to execute them.
