Innovate Across Clouds by Rethinking Connectivity, Security, and Management

Digital Event I Kuwait, April 5, 2021


Hybrid cloud is emerging as the logical choice to secure predictable, inexpensive capacity as a baseline for most day-to-day requirements, with the freedom of being able to consume on-demand public cloud when required. A unified experience across public and private clouds can reduce labor requirements through automation and simpler management.

To keep up with the rapid pace of business, organizations are increasingly turning to cloud to maintain a competitive advantage. This necessitates consistent controls as a prerequisite for connecting, managing, and securing hybrid cloud environments.

Join us for this exclusive digital event as IDC analysts examine the current cloud market situation in Kuwait and the wider region. They will be joined by executives from VMware and Zak Solutions as they showcase their latest Virtual Cloud Network solutions and explain how they can deliver consistent, pervasive connectivity and security for apps and data wherever they reside, independent of the underlying physical infrastructure.

Organizations are bringing forward their digital road maps to address challenges and capture the opportunities of the post-COVID-19 economy and the impending recovery. Consequently, cloud is becoming the foundational model for technology and business agility and innovation. Many organizations are increasingly looking to locate workloads in private and public clouds, based on their priorities and suitability; they are also looking to leverage the benefits of in-house infrastructure investments while exploiting the functionality and scalability of public clouds. This session will highlight how organizations can manage hybrid cloud environments and address security, governance, and agility challenges as they chart their cloud migration strategies.
