The Enterprise Data Center: Reports of My Death Are Greatly Exaggerated

Presented by

Simon Ratcliffe, CIO/CTO Advisor

About this talk

There has been much talk about cloud repatriation as many organisations reverse their precipitate rush to the public cloud. But simply bringing it home isn’t the answer either. Hybrid cloud has been around for many years and the emerging trend for multi-cloud strategies is driving organisations to take a long hard look at their own data centres. Building a truly cloud experience in an on-premises data centre is a challenge. Managing the resulting hybrid infrastructure with potential multi-clouds is a serious challenge. Join this webinar to look at options for building, managing, orchestrating and automating true hybrid clouds so they become an effective addition to an organisational strategy rather than the anchor that slows growth. Find out: - Why the modern enterprise data centre is still a good investment. - How to manage across data centres and environments. - How to move services between data centres quickly and easily.
