The event will focus on:
• Private cloud infrastructure
• Infrastructure components
• Application management, and
• Service delivery and automation.
Organizations currently have the power to employ cloud technologies in their own way, at their own pace, and with their own terms. The use of private cloud technologies is transforming how organizations manage infrastructure resources, provision applications, and automate services for their business. Private cloud technologies can help organizations increase their IT operational agility, improve their business focus, and achieve the economics to evolve their IT infrastructure into a strategic asset.
Participants will hear from industry organizations about how they view the public cloud and how the role of the IT professional will evolve as more and more organizations begin a private cloud transformation. Technical professionals will be on hand talking about the required components to simplify private cloud creation and management.
Participants can talk with them and peers about the operational efficiencies that come from deploying a private cloud with the reduction of servers and the benefits of provisioning and managing virtual applications across multiple platforms.
The event is intended to provide technology professionals with the knowledge and experience to help guide private cloud infrastructure decisions and thought-leadership based discussions focused on building and managing their organization's agile and efficient private cloud environment.
