|Business and IT strategy alignment||Wednesday, June 12||3:40 pm - 4:40 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
This track covers the changing concepts and implications of moving workloads to the cloud. Example topics include: data migration, consumption models, operational approaches, and management frameworks. Attendees will gain insight into cloud-readiness for their IT infrastructures and businesses, and learn how to maintain control, security, and compliance when moving to hybrid cloud operational models.
Many of today’s enterprises are working under the false assumption that there is a trade off between consumer-centric file sharing and corporate IT policy compliance. This assumption is common because market-leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for file syncing and sharing are not designed around enterprise IT needs. They represent growing risks with vendor lock-in, data security, compliance, and data ownership.
Fortunately, by leveraging innovative open source solutions from Red Hat and ownCloud, enterprises can provide a simple-to-use file syncing and sharing solution for employees. And this solution enables enterprises to have greater control over valuable intellectual property.
In this session, representatives from Vizuri, ownCloud, and Red Hat will:
Vizuri will demonstrate a hybrid cloud file-sync and share SaaS solution, designed using OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, ownCloud, and Red Hat Storage Server, that delivers an integrated mobile, desktop, and web-based solution.
