Every business these days is virtualized, but is yours private cloud automated?  While the differences between the two are slight, the business benefits can be substantial and measurable. 

Can your virtualized data center rapidly deliver IT services with a few clicks?  Can those services proactively scale out to meet new demands, and back in to eliminate waste and conserve costs?  Are your IT pros managing resources like developers, and your developers like IT Pros?

Answer “no” to any of these, and it’s likely your data center needs accelerating from basic virtualization to private cloud automation.  Learn how in this half-day seminar, keynoted by globally-recognized cloud expert Greg Shields of Concentrated Technology, along with other industry experts from CDW.

Spend a morning learning about the intelligent hardware and storage technologies that define the highly-automated data center.  See real-world examples of virtual automations that directly address business requirements.  Learn from the private cloud experts how others have aligned IT operations with smart technology for improved IT service delivery.
