IBM at Cisco Live: The future of hybrid cloud
In today’s hypercompetitive economy, your organization needs to deliver instant access to information, applications and services, or risk falling behind. If you use a traditional data center design with static resources, your IT infrastructure and staff likely can’t respond in time. Why?
Because traditional siloed environments are inefficient. Staffing and budget constraints further complicate the issue, hindering you from expanding your environment to handle increases in capacity and more types and instances of applications and workloads.
Join IBM at Cisco Live in Las Vegas on June 25-29, booth #2015
As the second-largest storage company in the world and the #1 provider of software-defined storage, IBM will showcase its open storage and compute solutions enabled for hybrid cloud. Designed to improve economics and optimize placement through automated, secure data flow, IBM’s storage solutions take full advantage of on-premises resources as well as services from today’s leading cloud providers.
See demos on the latest IBM and Cisco technologies
IBM Storage will feature several demos including Hybrid Cloud Made Easy featuring VersaStack™ and converged infrastructure from IBM and Cisco, which offers a range of preconfigured, validated and easy-to-deploy solutions. VersaStack combines the performance of IBM all-flash storage with the agility of cloud using Cisco CloudCenter™ and the Cisco Enterprise One Cloud Suite, helping organizations to embrace hybrid cloud with confidence.
Check out the Data Protected with Confidence demonstration, which features IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Cloud Object Storage. Many organizations use Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS) to provide access to virtual environments. To ensure availability, administrators need the tools to protect, backup and recover their data. Attend and understand why leading IT clients and service providers rely on IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management to ensure continuous operation in virtual environments.
Visit the Data tiered to the Cloud demonstration, and we’ll explain how to automate cloud deployment using IBM Spectrum Scale transparent cloud tiering, one of the fastest scale-out file storage solutions. You’ll learn how to lower the cost of long-term data retention through automated, transparent tiering of object storage. You’ll see how to automate data workflows, move data from on premises to the cloud, and speed delivery of media, cloud applications and analytics.
Finally, see the demo Data Delivered Without Delay featuring IBM FlashSystem A9000R running IBM Spectrum Accelerate as software-defined storage on commodity hardware in a virtual server environment. We’ll show you how to reduce your data workloads, integrate with OpenStack, use IBM Hyper-Scale Manager and IBM Spectrum Accelerate.
Join our executive iTalk on June 26 at 12PM
Eric Herzog, IBM Vice President, Product Marketing and Management, Storage Systems and SDI, will present Data & Application Mobility: Embrace Hybrid Cloud with Confidence where he’ll explain how businesses are adopting hybrid cloud to create competitive advantage. Attend this talk to learn how you can bring speed, agility and efficiency to the applications and workloads you deploy in the hybrid cloud, using IBM and Cisco’s converged infrastructure.
