Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

On paper the benefits of data centre automation are easy to see. But we don't build data centres on paper.

That is why our Regcast on 23 January at 11:00 GMT examines how to build a data centre and maintain it throughout its life in the private cloud environment.

What, if anything, has the cloud changed? What are the costs of running a sub-optimal environment? How will you manage your own cloud and do you have the right processes ready to look after it? Should you fear for your job, or your sanity, when you embark on this type of project?

Joining Tim Phillips on the Regcast will be analyst Tony Lock from Freeform Dynamics and Peter Mansell from HP.

So, if you are feeling the pain of deficits in data centre management, join us live to share your experiences and get practical advice from the experts via the ongoing Q&A.

Cool, eh?
