from the an-upcoming-webinar dept
Well, we're hoping to answer a bunch of these questions with a new webinar that we're putting on next Tuesday, May 11th at 9am PT/noon ET (register here), as a part of our ongoing IT Innovation series -- sponsored by Oracle and Intel. I'll be moderating the discussion, and the discussion will be led by two of the most knowledgeable folks I know on this topic: Jake Kaldenbaugh of CloudStrategies, and formerly an exec at NEC, where he drove early strategic efforts focusing on virtualization and cloud computing, and Sam Quigley of Emerose, a leading expert on cloud security, who previously was a founding member of EDS's security and privacy services group, an open source developer at security appliance vendor Astaro, the sole security person at Xign (which became JP Morgan Treasury Services) and Vice President of security and operations at Wesabe, the online financial startup.
The webinar will consist of a brief presentation, followed by discussion -- and we're hoping to make it as interactive as possible, so come ready with questions. If you'd like to attend, please register now!
Separately, it's worth noting that we recently refreshed the IT Innovation website, to reflect that it's sponsored by Oracle and Intel (Oracle taking over from Sun following the acquisition), and we've also refreshed the resource center with a series of new whitepapers, including (but not limited to):
- Best Practices for Managing Datacenter Costs via Application and Server Consolidation
- Why Solid-State Drives Usage Scenarios Are Expanding for the Datacenter
- New Blades and Networking Solutions Ensure Solid Return on Investment
- Reassessing Server Costs for Midsize Companies
