Data Preparing for the reality of Multi-Cloud in the Finance Sector
Join Nick Hyner, Regional Sales Director, Cloud Services, Dell Services and Guest speaker Len Padilla, Vice President Product Strategy, NTT Europe for a deep dive into multi-cloud in the Financial Services sector.
Low profit margins, stiff competition and the entrance of non-traditional firms are all putting pressure on your financial organisation. Cloud adoption can help you remain competitive in this tough market. But the move to the cloud is fraught with choices both confusing and contradictory.
Based on the characteristics of your workload, your cloud adoption can swing between public and private clouds. Your organisation may have requirements that will need to strike a balance between these two clouds. Preferences will not be as much about the size of your organization as they are about the nature of your IT workloads.
During this webcast you will learn about:
• Approaches to designing a multi-tenanted cloud architecture
• How to balance workloads and manage security at the same time
• Tools and technology approaches to balance financial services workloads in multi-cloud environments

The Triple A Datacentre: Available, Agile, and Aligned
Strong commercial forces, coupled with rapid technological changes, are putting more pressure than ever on owners and operators to design and run their datacentres to the highest standards. If they don’t, there could be dire commercial consequences, or workloads could be moved across the cloud to a different venue. Datacentres must be designed to optimize uptime with the help of the best technology and thoroughly applied processes. But that is not enough: they must also be agile – able to adapt if the workloads, competitive environment or technologies change, and every datacentre needs to be efficient – appropriately designed, resourced and optimized for the customer’s needs at any point, and aligned to the business environment and the appropriate workloads and applications.
At this industry-leading one-day Datacentre Summit, experienced datacentre owners, operators and managers will share their thoughts with 451 Research’s top datacentre and cloud analysts, joined by the leadership and members of the Uptime Institute. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss:
- Current and emerging best practices
- The impact of cloud on connectivity, scale and automation
- Design and process changes
- Latest and emerging technologies shaping datacentres
