HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

According to readers of The Register, Private Cloud is creeping towards being a central plank of IT with more than 30% of them estimating their IT will be based on such a dynamic infrastructure within the next three years. This isn’t a project that can be done at server level in isolation of course. Rather, it’s a project that needs everyone, and almost everything, singing in harmony.

On the 15th of February at 11:00, we’ve got a live broadcast that will be looking at what it takes to deliver these projects successfully. And we’ll be zooming in on one of the often overlooked areas – the network.

Once the servers and storage are virtualised, the network is going to experience traffic patterns the likes of which it has probably never witnessed. Whilst managing these surges by hand is doable, it’s likely to temper any benefit of the dynamics infrastructure. This is why software defined networks are seeing a rise in prominence. They should, in theory, enable networks to be dynamically configured to contend with the demands of the private cloud infrastructure.

Sound complicated? Fear not, we have a room full of experts to help you navigate this network and private cloud opportunity. Freeform Dynamics' Andy Buss, HP's Eugene Berger and Trevor Kelly and our very own Tim Phillips will be helping you through the mire. They’re primed to handle your questions live from the studio and have lots of facts, figures and real world experiences to share with you.

The broadcast is free to attend from the comfort of your own desk and should last about an hour. If you’d to register to attend, you can do that right here.
