Welcome and Introduction
The Rise of the Container: Ecosystem and Impact
Gary Chen will explore how containers are changing the software defined computing landscape. This presentation will include IDCs latest container forecast data and enterprise customer studies. Mr. Chen will provide insight into how containers are spreading from the hyperscale web pioneers to the enterprise, container orchestration trends, workloads being containerized, and the impact on the virtualization and broader datacenter market.
Infrastructure Planning in a Multi-Leader Public Cloud IaaS Market
In this presentation, IDCs Deepak Mohan discusses how the public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market has evolved to a multi-leader market, clearly dominated by a handful of large vendors each with its own strengths and differentiators. The presentation then goes on to highlight the growth of multi-cloud usage among cloud customers, including survey results regarding the prevalence and drivers toward multi-cloud usage, as well as key integration considerations when planning for this type of IT environment.
Hyperscale Cloud Service Providers: Setting the Networking Agenda for Enterprise IT
Join us as IDCs Brad Casemore examines how hyperscale innovations in datacenter networking are being adapted and repackaged for enterprise consumption by OEM and ODM vendors. This presentation will also include details on ODM/White Box switch adoption trends as well as IDCs latest forecast data. Finally, Mr. Casemore will provide his insight and analysis on how innovations in network automation, programmability, orchestration, and ML- and AI-based analytics are coming to the enterprise datacenter network, and what this means moving forward.
Core to Edge: How the Internet of Things is shaping the future of Infrastructure
In this presentation, Ashish Nadkarni explores the changing nature of IT infrastructure thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). Ashish will review trends such as Edge Computing, Accelerated Computing, Heterogeneous Computing and Composable Infrastructure. He will also review the convergence of IT and operational technology (OT), the proliferation of industry-standard systems at the Edge and the decoupling of OT applications from hardware leading to a software-defined OT revolution. Finally, this session will provide essential guidance for vendors and buyers on how they can embrace a shift in the computing paradigm as they chart out their IoT strategy.
