Whitehall Media announces its third Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualisation Conference: ECCV, 2013

Whitehall Media, the UK’s market-leading business-to-business multi-platform media group is delighted to announce the launch of its third annual Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization Conference and Exhibition: ECCV, 2013. The event follows on from the hugely successful and compelling Cloud Computing Conference held at the Lancaster Hotel, London, in March this year. The next Enterprise and Cloud Computing Conference will be held at the Hotel Russell, London, on 7 March, 2013, and promises to be the year’s most prestigious and topical event surrounding the deployment of Enterprise-Wide Cloud and Virtualization Infrastructures across enterprise-level companies across the UK.

Cloud Computing represents one of the largest new investment opportunities on the horizon. 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.

Unfortunately what has been missing so far from the Cloud debate is a detailed discussion and in-depth analysis of what has to happen if we are to make Cloud Computing the real success story it promises to be. Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization 2013 will address this issue. ECCV, 2013, aims to provide IT professionals and business leaders who want to fully understand what cloud computing can do for their organizations with all the knowledge they will need. The one day conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the foundational elements of the cloud environment from a business, technical and research perspective.

Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualisation, 2013, will define the many terms and concepts that are fundamental to developing an understanding of cloud computing and its enablement through virtualization, and explain about the economics of public, private and hybrid cloud environments as well as management. ECCV 2013 will deliver all the necessary knowledge for enterprise to understand the set of challenges created by cloud computing and its virtualized environment, and provide an overview of the emerging networking, optimization and management technologies that hold the potential to mitigate these challenges.

Virtualization is the essential catalyst for enabling the transition to cloud computing. Virtualization is driving a fundamental shift in how we think about data centre environments, as well as lowering capital and operational costs and enabling IT agility. The compression of multiple workloads onto a single physical server enables data centres to save tremendous amounts of money on hardware, power, cooling and floor space. However chief executives are also discovering that Virtualization can do much more than simply improving the balance sheet: it can also strengthen competitive advantage and put a shine on the corporate brand.

Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualization, 2013, is designed to help organizations address the growing exposure to the Cloud and equip the delegates with the know-how 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 applications which major companies are using today, and the future direction of Virtualization technologies that enable them. The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.
