About this talk

This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) and cloud services featuring GigaOm Analysts, Ray Lucchesi, Philip Sellers, and Steve Ginsberg, as well as special guest from Nutanix, Mike Wronski. The panel will discuss what can be done to make HCI more cloud-like so as to better co-exist with public cloud environments. With some applications moving to the cloud, HCI data centers and public cloud will have to co-exist for the foreseeable future. All these environments employ some form of virtualization, which has become less of a differentiator over time. As a result, ease of operation, application services, and pay-as-you-go financial models have grown into key ways for IT to discriminate between HCI or cloud offerings to host applications. To flourish in the data centers of the future, HCI will need to adopt many of these same paradigms present in public clouds today. In this 1-hour webinar, attendees will discover: Why the data center of the future will need to co-exist with cloud environments for a long time to come. Why virtualization has become less important and how ease of use has become more critical as a means to discriminate between HCI and cloud solutions to host IT applications. Why HCI solutions will need to become much more API/DevOps/automation driven. The future of IT is clear, it’s becoming a data center-public or hybrid-cloud world. In order to succeed in this new environment, IT managers must move from a focus on virtualization and hypervisors to ease of use as a key selection criterion.
