Cloud service levels with a cast iron guarantee?
Getting your networks up to speed
Webcast The nature of all “cloud” and “consolidation” projects makes the effective delivery of data over network connections, potentially WAN pipes of limited capacity, a major challenge.
But your users won’t care about that. They just wants a service that works as if it’s local. The question is how do you guarantee such service levels?
You can get some clues on how to achieve that by joining us on Tuesday 23 November at 10:00 am GMT.
We have Tim Phillips, The Register’s man in front of the camera, in the studio with a couple of guys who know a fair few things about optimising networks. Tony Lock, from Freeform Dynamics, and Mark Lewis from Riverbed are the men in the hot seats.
Between them they will look at how effective WAN and network communications can be provided to help address the service quality challenges inherent in storage consolidation projects as well as in both internal and external cloud solutions.
This live one hour long event is very much in your hands. Certainly we have some areas that we’re going to explore in some detail. But, better still, if you come along with a vast array of questions on the matter, we’ll divert and handle them too. You can think of it as free advice. What a treat. We hope to see you there.
You can register, for free right here. Remember, if you can’t make the live event it will be available shortly after as a recorded video and if you register today we’ll ping you when that recording is available. How thoughtful. ®
Keeping network users happy ...
"They just wants a service that works as if it’s local."
"The question is how do you guarantee such service levels?"
Personally, I keep it all in-house ... It's the only way I know to make certain that my users always have connectivity. If I control it, I know it works ... If "the cloud" controls it, chances are it'll fall over at the least opportune moment.
I'm not being cynical here, I'm just making a personal observation based on my over a third of a century making money with computers & networking. In all that time, people making claims about nebulous ideas such as "the cloud" have ALWAYS been marketards, without a clue as to the reality of life in the trenches in day-to-day corporate networking.
