Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

On the 11th of July at 10:30am we’re broadcasting live with Garry Meaburn, the operations effectiveness and tooling manager at Unilever, dishing out practical tips on how to build a dynamic IT operation using private cloud principles. Garry's currently a good way through this sizable project.

The Register's Lucy Sherriff is the host and she's joined by Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics and Puja Prabhakar from Avenade. Andy will provide the relevant scene setting. Puja, who's working with Garry on the Unilever program, will share her experiences from the front line.

Garry is promising as much detail as he can about why the project was initiated, how it was funded, the challenges they've overcome and the benefits they've already delivered. Plus, he and the gang are ready and willing to tackle any questions you may have - which you can throw at them live during the discussion.

Anyone thinking about making the shift to dyanmic IT and private cloud, this should help.. You can read more and register to attend the event right here.
