Defining your Path Towards a Software Defined Datacenter

The business needs for IT services are no longer simply concerned with improving internal efficiency; they are changing rapidly becoming focussed on connecting with customers and partners to deliver new products and improve customer service. These new requirements create challenges that the traditional model of IT service delivery cannot readily meet. This session will describe how the Software defined Datacenter approach allows IT services to respond to these changing needs. The key to this approach is the automatic management and optimization of virtualized IT services. However the more the IT service becomes abstracted from the hardware the more important is the need to take an information-centric rather than a hardware-centric approach to security.

After attending this session you will be able to:

  • Describe what Software Defined Datacenters are.
  • Describe the benefits of Software Defined Datacenters.
  • Explain the difference between Software Defined Datacenters and Cloud Computing
  • Describe the key components of a Software Defined Datacenter
  • Explain the security implications of a Software Defined Datacenter.

Keeping Control over your Cloud Zoo: Multi-Cloud-Platforms for your SDDC

Organizations are increasingly adopting cloud based IT services from multiple providers as well as embarking on the virtualization of internally delivered IT services. Both of these approaches need to co-exist with legacy IT services delivered in a traditional manner. This panel session will lead you through the challenges of and the solutions to the management and security issues following from this hybrid IT services environment.

After attending this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the challenges of managing a hybrid IT service environment which includes cloud, virtualization and legacy IT.
  • Explain the difference between the hybrid cloud delivery model and a hybrid IT services environment.
  • Explain the techniques available to orchestrate and automate the management of hybrid IT services environment.
  • Describe the security challenges of a hybrid IT service environment.
