Cloud Computing & Virtualization SIG: The Future of the Data Center



  • Topic:  The Future of the Data Center

    Our topic this month is "The Data Center of the Future." The confluence of virtualization, dynamic scaling, and staggering increases in scale mean that the practices and economics of traditional data centers are no longer sustainable -- a transformational change is required.

    We have speakers from two companies that represent complementary approaches to solving the problem of the data center of the future.

    One company is Nexenta, which provides highly scalable storage software that runs on x86 commodity servers. The second company is ServiceMesh, whose product provides Agile IT governance and lifecycle management software to operate an efficient, automated computing environment.

    This meeting promises to be entertaining and educational, and will provide a glimpse into the data center of the future. We look forward to seeing you at the SIG!
