Today, Cloud has become the growth engine for smarter enterprises. When we talk about Cloud – it’s primarily about the shift in delivery and consumption of IT services through technologies like Virtualization or Converged infrastructure. A Software Defined Environment (SDE) is the next evolution of the underlying technology, where the entire IT infrastructure is automated by the software to deliver greater levels of intelligence and value, on top of standardized hardware. SDE is IBM’s approach to provide an ideal architecture for private, public and hybrid clouds, enabling enterprises take advantage of virtualization not just in servers, but also in networking and security, storage and management hence allowing clouds to become more efficient, simplified, responsive and adaptive. Organizations across the world are embracing IBM SDE in order to enhance their Cloud architectures and achieve highest levels of performance, reliability and scalability in their IT infrastructures. Is your IT infrastructure ready to embrace this evolution? Get ready!
At Pulse 2014 – The Premier Cloud Conference, leading experts will discuss how IBM Software Defined Environments help enterprises attain competitive advantage and profitability through speed and efficiency in delivering Cloud services. This year’s Pulse, from February 23rd to 26th, MGM Grand - Las Vegas, will explore the latest developments in Cloud and Software Defined Environments that can help you drive bold innovations, reach new markets and improve profitability.
I invite you to join me in our panel discussion designed exclusively for you to learn the growing importance and impact of Software Defined Environment on organizations.
