Jon Brown keynotes this complimentary dinner seminar on hosting production workloads in the cloud

The benefits of cloud computing have been hammered into IT - streamlined processes, improved accessibility, greater flexibility, and so on - but latent concerns around security, performance, and access have kept many organizations from realizing the true value of the cloud.

You need to objectively compare the capabilities and costs of cloud services against those of traditional on-premises infrastructure - even if you're already doing some mix of the two (in fact, especially if you're doing a mix of the two).

This event provides that objective perspective by focusing on building a data center infrastructure that realizes the true value of cloud computing across your IT infrastructure - including automation, high availability, appropriate utilization rates - and not just limited, low-impact use cases.

Join us for dinner and a lively discussion to:

    • Evaluate cloud deployment models and critique common cloud reference architectures
    • Securely move business critical apps, data, and workloads to the cloud
    • Pair advanced/modern IT strategy with modern cloud solutions to finally realize the much-hyped benefits of cloud
    • Minimize your data center footprint and centralize management all while better leveraging cloud service options
    • Realize cloud's true value in terms of scalability, agility, flexibility, and cost efficiency - instead of solely for test/dev

Keynote Presentation: How to Make the Move to the Hybrid Cloud

Migrating your data and servers to the cloud isn't a binary decision but more of a natural evolution as your computing needs change and as you gain more confidence in cloud-based solutions. In this seminar, we'll look at the decision points and their consequences that organizations need to consider in order to take advantage of building scalable and agile cloud infrastructures. We'll examine the various paths that typical enterprise IT shops take to cloud-enable their computing systems, consider orchestration and provisioning issues, and look at different metrics to measure successful implementations. Finally, we will present a series of case studies illustrating the range of different paths and cloud-based solutions chosen by leading businesses.
