IT - Virtual Roundtable

On prem vs public cloud: making your IT infrastructure future-ready

24th November 2021 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm GMT | 3:00pm - 4:30pm CET
How to enable hyperconverged infrastructure for easier to manage environments, increased efficiency and reduced cost.

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by AMD

IT leaders are under more pressure than ever to deliver digital solutions. But they are also expected to prioritize strategic capabilities that enable success during rebound and recovery. The traditional silos of datacenters are not responsive or flexible enough to satisfy both short and longer-term challenges.

And they are giving way to hyperconverged infrastructures, where traditional, hardware-based environments are consolidated into virtualized, software-defined environments. This creates powerful data centres that are easier to manage, lower cost and simultaneously increases efficiency and flexibility.

So, how can your IT environment fully support your high-performance computing needs? How can you streamline your on premise and cloud workloads to provide efficiencies and cost savings? And how can you ensure end-to-end security from client to server?

Join AMD and a select group of industry peers to discuss your data centre challenges, cloud migration projects and the capacity of AI and high-performance computing in making your IT environments future ready.

Discussion Topics

What challenges are you facing within your data centre right now, e.g., security, cost, power, space, density? And how are you navigating some of these issues?
Where are you in your cloud migration journey? What benefits are you gaining from the public cloud, or would like to?
Have you explored the possibility of a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), or would like to? What improvements have you seen / do you see as a possibility?
