Web-based companies win or lose based on the efficiency of their data center infrastructure. In fact, they use their data centers as factories of competitive differentiation and economic value rather than as supporting infrastructure.
To do so, these Web leaders need a flexible, efficient, resilient and highly available architecture — characteristics that are highly prized by all enterprises operating in the competitive, global, always-on, "Big Data"-driven environment of today.
Join us for an in-depth discussion of how to apply the innovations honed for these Web leaders to your data center. You'll learn:
- Why Web companies tend to choose a scale-out (rather than a scale-up) architecture
- The advantages of baking resiliency and availability into the software versus the more traditional hardware-based approach
- Why efficiency is even more critical in a "hyperscale" architecture
- Techniques these companies use to reduce TCO at the data center "factory" level, including power and cooling considerations
- Key building blocks for hyperscale architectures, including cloud computing, Hadoop, OpenStack and more.
Register today to secure your place in this fascinating behind the scenes look at how the techniques used by Web innovators can work for your data center.
