Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Proper webcast If you’re running a data centre, or just a moderate server room, chances are you’ve got an awful lot on your plate. Day to day; new demands, new apps, new kit, new pressures and more than likely, you only have partial visibility on these matters.

No more. The mighty readers of The Register are here to help.

On 26 November at 11am GMT we share the wisdom of your peers in a live webcast on the state of the x86 server estate.

The webcast draws on research we recently completed with you, the reader: it promises to give you good insight into how your peers are coping with these pressures – and gives you the low-down on the pressures they are feeling.

We consider the state of play in the server room, using this research to understand the forces on the x86 server environment, and how organisations are dealing with these challenges. This will include looking at the following trends, techniques and capabilities.

  • The currency of server environments, and the management challenges that are perceived
  • Drivers for change, where they are coming from and what impact they are having
  • New chipset developments and their enhanced capabilities
  • Investment and modernisation plans, and what hurdles are in the way of modernisation
  • The impact of x86 server virtualization
  • Management realities in terms of capabilities, and plans for improvement

You can expect real world anecdotes and scenarios from Reg readers. The event is fronted by the legendary Tim Phillips from The Register and will include Jon Collins from Freeform Dynamics and Iain Beckingham, a server expert from Intel.

We won’t be talking at you, this gig is interactive, so you can ask questions and get granular on any points you need answered.
