Spending on hardware is expected to continue declining as companies become more reliant on cloud computing and virtualization. Some Enterprise CIOs estimate that they will spend around 40 percent of their IT budget on Cloud Computing in the next two years, rising to 70 percent by 2016. It’s been predicted that large enterprises with 10,000 to 15,000 applications are considering moving 2,000 to 3,000 of these to The Cloud over the next couple of years, or accessing them there as SaaS applications. The Enterprise world is changing quickly and businesses now have to deal with a number of new technologies: Web 2.0, the explosion in mobile connectivity and the emergence of the surreal, yet enormously powerful new world of Cloud Computing. The significance of The Cloud is hard to over-estimate: it has the potential to spark one of the biggest shifts in the corporate IT power balance since the rise of the desktop PC.
The problem is much of the information is theoretical, and not easily understood. Many smaller businesses understand the potential benefits, but are unsure how they can make the transition from a physical to a virtual platform. That’s where ECCV 2013, can help your business. The Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization Conference will show you how to move from theory to implementation. ECCV 2013 Conference and Exhibition will cover practical cloud computing designs, as well as the standards, infrastructure decisions, and the economics you need to understand as you transform your organization’s IT.
Virtualization has changed how we think about data centre environments. It is capable of lowering capital and operational costs whilst enabling IT agility. By compressing multiple workloads onto a single physical server, virtualization enables data centres to save tremendous amounts of money on hardware, power, cooling and floor space. But virtualization offers more than that, as most chief executives are now discovering: virtualization can also strengthen competitive advantage.
Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization 2013 is designed to help organisations address the growing exposure to the Cloud and equip delegates with the knowledge they’ll need to be able to deploy Secure Cloud Infrastructures in their own workplace. Drawing many senior-level decision makers, the agenda’s three tracks will focus on the business impact of the Cloud, the practical ways in which major companies are using it today, and the future direction of virtualization technologies that enable it. In short, ECCV 2013 will discuss what has to happen to make Cloud Computing a real success story.
Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization 2013 will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the essential elements of the cloud environment from a business, technical and research perspective. The conference will define the many terms and concepts that are fundamental to developing an understanding of cloud computing and its enablement through virtualization. In addition, you will learn about the economics of public, private and hybrid cloud environments as well as management.
ECCV 2013 will be the right conference to understand the set of challenges created by cloud computing and its virtualized environment to provide an overview of the emerging networking, optimization and management technologies that hold the potential to mitigate these challenges.
ECCV 2013 will include sessions about:
- Public, Private & Hybrid Cloud
- Data Centre Infrastructure
- Many Case Studies from Industry & Research using vendor and end-use customer examples to examine cloud delivery models in detail: Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service
- Cloud Computing for Small & Medium-Sized Enterprises
- Cloud Computing as one possible future of High Performance Computing
- The ‘Cloud Debate’ about the Pros and Cons of Cloud Computing
- A Panel Discussion about how to start your Cloud, and finding the right Cloud strategy for your organization
ECCV Solutions is a MUST for IT decision makers from industry and academia. They will gain a qualified and unbiased overview of the state-of-the-art in Cloud Computing and Virtualization from a series of dedicated seminars and a carefully selected number of major solution providers within the exclusive exhibition.
