The Ideal Data Centre (PAST EVENT)

The Royal Exchange,
Bank, City of London
The demands of IT and storage change quickly – keep up with the challenge of responding to these demands and stay in control of what's working, what's not and what's right for your business.


Join us for an interactive morning of insights into Virtualisation, Storage and Business Continuity  which will support your journey towards achieving The Ideal Data Centre for your business. Statistics show up to 17% of IT budget is spent just managing storage and not on creating a forward thinking plan. This event is intended for those tasked with ensuring their organisation has  an IT Roadmap fit for a Next Generation Agile Infrastructure.

Learn about Hybrid Cloud Architecture and how VMware vCloud Air, quickly and seamlessly extends your data centre into the cloud using the tools and processes you already have.

Hear from NetAPP and Veeam how their solutions integrate to meet the needs of todays ‘always-on’ business which requires strict and demanding uptimes, together with great protection and recovery performances.

This event includes Presentations and interactive Discussions wherein we will share with you key industry tips and insights, as well as exploring how solving particular storage issues can transform your entire IT operation, freeing up resources to drive your business forward and build “The Ideal IT Infrastructure”.
