If your IT organization is slow to adapt the company infrastructure, it’s probably hindering business agility. Along with the high cost of software, this limitation is driving many businesses to consider a more efficient way of delivering services. Is business asking how your IT organization will be implementing cloud? Are you considering a private cloud, but not sure what you need to be successful? Cloud patterns require a robust infrastructure to deploy the cloud services and ensure their availability to meet demanding service levels. Virtualization on an enterprise level requires a careful consideration of security, availability, efficiency, scalability and cost-effectiveness.
Join us for this complimentary teleconference as we explore the key role a highly scalable platform, such as System z®, plays in making your cloud deployment successful. From recovery with zero data lost, to huge savings in software due to extreme consolidation — and major reductions in energy usage, we’ll help you get started on your own plan for cloud. We’ll also show you how end-to-end Tivoli® Service Management fits in a private cloud by providing the Visibility, Control and Automation required to realize the cost savings and the improved resource utilization promised by cloud. In this session, you’ll learn how to use System z to deliver your cloud, and take advantage of a shared-everything approach to system resources.
Join us after the teleconference for a live question-and-answer session. The teleconference will also be available for replay after the event.
