Bringing the cloud back to the data centre

Registration is no longer possible.

Thursday, July 7th, 18:30 HKT

IT, Infrastructure, and Cloud leaders in Hong Kong are invited to join this roundtable dinner on Bringing the Cloud Back to the Data Centre.

An expert moderator will guide the knowledge sharing event, stimulating discussion between participants in a closed, confidential environment. Attendance is by invitation only and complimentary. Registration is limited to a select number of guests per event.

Bringing the cloud back to the data centre

Public cloud offers various advantages, but many workloads are difficult to migrate to the cloud—and perhaps should not be migrated at all. While public cloud vendors continue to develop new ways of managing technology resources, many of these methods remain out of reach for the local data centre or are piecemeal, making them nearly impossible to integrate effectively. Composable Disaggregated Infrastructure is emerging as an area that may offer some of the agility needed to move as fast as the cloud without requiring a massive migration.

As organisations struggle with how and where to place their applications, there are many elements at play: risk and security, application refactoring, reskilling IT workers, and, of course, costs. All this must be considered against the backdrop of rapidly increasing volumes of data, increased competitiveness driving the need for rapid response, and the steady explosion of new paradigms and technologies to keep up with.

  • How do organizations plan for the future and the seemingly unending stampede of new technologies? What role does Composable Disaggregated Infrastructure play?
  • What are companies doing with legacy apps? How do they manage platform changes, changes in development methods, and operations moving to more automated methods like containers?
  • How could cloud-like agility and efficiency in the data centre transform a company’s approach to leveraging technology to win in the market?
