Multi Cloud Architecture in Next-Gen Datacenters

İstanbul, March 13, 2018


Multi Cloud Architecture in Next-Gen Datacenters

Are You Ready for The Cloud Era?

Next-Gen Data Centers

The Turkey enterprise infrastructure market is gradually maturing as an increasing number of organizations embrace more efficient, consolidated, manageable, and cloud-enabled infrastructures. Sitting at the heart of this shift is the implementation of digital transformation initiatives and the adoption of 3rd Platform technologies like cloud, mobility, social business, and Big Data analytics. Such developments are reshaping the datacenter and driving organizations to reassess their associated architecture.

The modern datacenter continues to evolve in line with evolving business demands and advancements in technology. As such, IDC is seeing notable changes within key datacenter-related technology markets like servers, storage, and networking, as well as a gradual shift to newer consolidated systems. Ultimately, for cloud to become a reality, datacenters must evolve and become more agile, enabling organizations to embrace innovative solutions that are more scalable and manageable.

Cloud 2.0

Cloud as we know it is on a path of transformation. IDC predicts that by 2020, public IT cloud services will account for 58% of the $355 billion combined spending on traditional plus public cloud applications, development and deployment tools, infrastructure software, storage, and servers.

Don’t miss the event

With all this in mind, join IDC and key industry players as we discuss the dynamics of the next-generation datacenter and examine the role that cloud and mobility will play in paving the way for enterprises to leverage IT as a genuine business enabler. Respected thought leaders will be on hand throughout the day to ensure you gain strategic insights into making your cloud and datacenters even more effective.
