Join experts from Majenta, Cisco, NetApp and Microsoft for an invaluable insight into the very latest developments in agile data centers and prevalidated solutions. Hosted at the Heritage Motor Museum, home the largest collection of British cars and conveniently located just off the M40, this not to be missed event also includes a complimentary Land Rover experience.
Over the course of the day we’ll explain to you how your organisation can incorporate flexible and cost-effective IT solutions with specific emphasis on virtualisation, Cloud and prevalidated technologies.
Taking each component in turn and explained by the vendor themselves, you’ll see how a Flexpod data center solution can easily scale vertically or horizontally to accommodate many application workloads and environments. We’ll also explain why considering a move away from siloed servers, storage and networking resources to higher levels of virtualisation could deliver a significant benefit.
