GlassHouse Technologies to Present on Strategic Enterprise Cloud Deployments at Gartner Data Center Conference 2012

GlassHouse Technologies:

       

What:

Cloud computing is transforming the data center industry; in fact, Cisco forecasts that global cloud traffic will account for nearly two-thirds of total data center traffic and that three out of five data center workloads will be processed in the cloud by 2016.

 

At this year’s Gartner Data Center Conference, GlassHouse Technologies, a global provider of data center infrastructure consulting and managed services, will present on the disruption that lies ahead for the data center in the era of cloud. The session, “Cloud Computing: Now that the Shininess is Gone,” will cover the multiple facets of the cloud adoption process and will highlight how GlassHouse helped an organization build and manage its own private cloud.

 

Why:

Most enterprises and service providers across all industries are at a phase where cloud computing is being added to their existing technologies. The significant disruption that cloud presents is requiring them to think more strategically about their deployments. In order to fully realize the benefits of the cloud, enterprises not only need to learn how to integrate cloud technology, but also how to redesign their business policies and practices to fulfil the automation, self-selection, agility and cost benefits promised by cloud.
 

Where:

The Gartner Data Center Conference is being held December 3-6, 2012 at The Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. GlassHouse’s session, “Cloud Computing: Now that the Shininess is Gone,” will take place in the Showfloor Theater in Hall D.

 

When:

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 12:25 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. PST
 

Who:

Ken Copas, cloud practice director at GlassHouse Technologies, educates clients on the concepts that drive cloud computing and service provider models. His experience includes serving as a business development executive with IBM and as an IT executive for NetJets. Ken has written extensively on cloud and is a frequent contributor to WIRED.
