Building Continuous Cloud Infrastructures
October 8, 2014 (9am PT, 12pm ET)

In this Webtech, Hitachi design experts will cover what is needed to build Continuous Cloud Infrastructures – servers, networks and storage. Geographically distributed, fault-tolerant, stateless designs allow efficient distributed load balancing, easy migrations, and continuous uptime in the face of individual system element or site failures. Starting with distributed stretch-cluster server environments, learn how to design and deliver enterprise-class cloud storage with the Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System and Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Options for designing Continuous Cloud Infrastructures from an application point of view.
  • Why a stretch-cluster server operating environment is important to Continuous Cloud Infrastructure system design.
  • How Hitachi global storage virtualization and global-active devices can simplify and improve server-side stretch-cluster systems.

The Rise of Enterprise IT as a Service
October 22, 2014 (9am PT, 12pm ET)

IT leaders are increasingly weighing the benefits and risks moving of engaging with vendors that deliver technology “as a service.” Many as-a-service vendors promise to deliver decreased complexity along with committed savings back to the business. However, oftentimes clients are not prepared to make the necessary operational and governance-related changes necessary to enable vendors to transform their environment. Presenting will be Information Services Group (ISG), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, along with Hitachi Data Systems.

Join this WebTech to learn from ISG:

  • How clients are supplementing, and sometimes replacing, traditional outsourcing with consumption-based, as-a-service delivery models.
  • Benefits and potential risks of the as-a-service model.
  • Recommended criteria to evaluate as-a-service vendors.
  • Hear best practices and case studies from Hitachi Data Systems, demonstrating how clients can move to an IT-as-a-service model that delivers decreased complexity and committed cost savings.
