The cost-per-mW in the delivery of hybrid cloud capacity, by applying open-source principles in the design, build and delivery of data centers, can reach a point to challenge the per-mW costs that public cloud providers are achieving. This panel discusses how that’s possible.

Moving to the Cloud is a technology business management decision that demands careful planning. Both clear articulation of the business benefits and an equally clear-eyed understanding of the risks and challenges are management requirements. In the time of DevOps and cloud architects and engineers, how can you ensure efficient, effective resource allocation to ensure a successful implementation?

Issues of interoperability, compatibility, and portability perpetually challenge IT shops everywhere and unnecessarily delay the move towards the true, software-defined, data-driven data center. The session focuses on how "open" interfaces help to solve this problem.
Cloud’s benefits are pretty clear. The competence to choose, plan and make the transition without fear of losing control is not as clear. Is cloud infrastructure an all or nothing game or a hybrid model? How do you ensure that that your IT infrastructure is reliable, resilient and able to deliver on command? How do you ensure that you stay in control.

As standardized offerings for hosting and cloud providers become more complex and interdependent, so too do the requirements to properly manage and troubleshoot them. The ability for technical teams to quickly localize bottlenecks, capacity limits, application issues, and other problems is now a key success factor. Troubleshooting, once considered a soft skill, now needs to be acknowledged and cultivated as an important corporate skill and asset.

Programmable hardware enables operators of datacenters to scale up the performance of critical networking services. In addition to deployment of additional CPU cores, operators are now also deploying Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) logic to lower latency, improve throughput, and decrease the energy required to operate their datacenters. In this session, we see real applications in 10G to 100G networks where Gateware Defined Networking (GDN) solutions achieve 20x improvements.
