Businesses large and small are turning to Hybrid Cloud because it unites the best of all worlds - Public Cloud, Private Cloud and dedicated servers working together in any combination. A Hybrid Cloud combines the use of on-premises cloud infrastructure with cloud service provider infrastructure to create a firm’s overall capacity from the combined capabilities. While a hybrid approach promises cost savings and significant gains in IT and business flexibility, some concerns remain around how to manage, secure and integrate on-premises infrastructure with cloud services in hybrid cloud architecture…
Identifying these imperatives, we bring you an exclusive Video Debate session where top IT experts will discuss on when the hybrid clouds are and are not the be-all and end-all and if the infrastructure supporting the hybrid clouds really matters. On Tuesday, March 11th from 11 am-12 pm EDT, the fifth installment of our What’s Next for IT Infrastructure Video Debate will also discuss about the developments in cloud, data, security and many other latest topics and trends that influence your IT infrastructure.
The debate session will be moderated by Kevin Jackson, founder of GovCloud and author of GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government. Among the panelists, we will have Steve Strutt - CTO for Cloud Computing, IBM UK and Ireland, Laura DiDio - Principal of ITIC, and Michael A. Salsburg - Ph.D., Distinguished Engineer & Chief Architect for Cloud Solutions, Unisys. The panelists will probe, discuss and debate the question, “Are dynamic hybrid clouds the best of all possible worlds?” Moreover, they will address top Hybrid Clouds concerns including costs, security, the role of infrastructure hardware and more through real-life use cases. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity! Register now and join us to learn from these leading industry experts.
