Using a private cloud to optimise & transform your datacentre

Find out the benefits and challenges of implementing a private cloud and hear about the current state of private cloud adoption in Europe.

A survey by TechTarget found that more than half (56.8%) of UK and European users choose not to use, or are even considering using, a private cloud over the next 12 months.

This webcast will discuss the current state of private cloud computing adoption across Europe, in addition to raising issues with cost and security.

Join the discussion with Archana Venkatraman from SearchVirtualDataCentre.co.UK, Cliff Saran from ComputerWeekly.com, and a panel of industry experts as they compare public, private and hybrid cloud options.

The webcast will explore whether businesses are ready to use private cloud computing to optimise and transform their data centres. As our survey shows, less than half of the enterprises are looking to implementing a private cloud strategy.

While businesses understand that cloud is the way forward, they may not be ready to use cloud services. Barriers to cloud adoption include legacy infrastructure; budget restrictions; and ownership of IT assets among others.

Experts will discuss each of these issues and delve deeper into other concerns which include:

  • Lack of standardisation in the virtualisation industry
  • Issues around certification and licensing
  • Budgets
  • Security

Experts will advise on what IT pros can do today to overcome these problems and how professionals can convince key stakeholders for using private cloud computing to optimise/transform data centres.
