Event Detail

Hybrid cloud deployments are the favoured strategy of enterprises seeking to combine the benefits of innovation, hyper scale, speed and consumption, while simultaneously fulfilling on their regulatory compliance obligations.  Creating these highly performant environments also enable a dynamic and optimized workload placement over time and rapid acceleration towards digitalisation. But if you want to improve the chances that your hybrid cloud is delivering on its promise, you must consider how technologies like Kubernetes (ie, via OpenShift) can build the appropriate foundation for your business.

But with all the hype and mystery around ‘containerization’ what is the true value that they can deliver? Gartner estimates that enterprises leveraging containerization will jump from just 30% in 2020 to 75% by 2022. This session will explore the important considerations around your approach to containerization for you to realise the full value of your chosen strategy;

  • Security
  • Development Culture
  • Container Management tools e.g. Kubernetes and OpenShift
  • Appliance-based solutions
