Sponsored by Dell - For IT managers under pressure to improve security while streamlining costs and resources, the decision to adopt cloud-based applications such as Office 365 is easy. Unfortunately, the transition from on-premises Active Directory to cloud-based Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) or a hybrid solution may not be as easy as it would seem. Even those already operating in the cloud could benefit by optimizing their environments. See More
Sponsored by NetApp - Enterprise organizations that deploy cloud-based applications could be in for a big surprise if they decide to change cloud service providers. The lack of data interchange standards and the sluggish speed of bulk data transfers over TCP/IP networks make data portability between clouds difficult at best—and unworkable at worst. See More
Sponsored by SolidFire - Hosting 3.0 avoids a “race to the bottom” where the only differentiator between providers is how much cheaper they are. The focus for the 3.0 providers is to create a next-generation data center that leverages advances in automation, orchestration, and performance quality of service (QoS) to truly enable business agility and transformation in the digital economy.

Sponsored by HP - When moving data between storage devices (such as when migrating from a legacy storage array to a next-generation one), interrupted data access is still considered the norm. While some businesses make use of data migration software to avoid locking themselves to a specific storage vendor, this approach is not cost-effective in situations where migrations only take place at certain points in the technology refresh cycle. A solution that simplifies the management of data movement by eliminating the need for multiple products or additional management layers while simplifying scalability and availability improvements is needed.
