The 4th annual Cloud & Virtualisation Africa Summit will be held at the Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg from 30 September to 1 October 2013. The summit is hosted by international business-to-business conferencing company, Kinetic.
Enterprise virtualisation projects are the focus of many IT professionals attempting to consolidate servers or data centres, decrease costs and launch successful “green” IT conservation initiatives. To better understand the greater concept of virtualising; IT resources are somewhat ‘squeezed’ from the enterprise computers processing power, memory, bandwidth and storage capacity, while transferring the data gathered onto the smallest number of hardware platforms possible, and then strategically assigning those resources to operating systems and applications on a time-share basis.
The summit is aimed at industry enterprise and technology leaders with the thirst for knowledge and understanding, insight and guidance on how cloud computing and virtualisation is essentially transforming the way in which we think about, acquire and use computing resources. The summit will allow senior decision makers and industry executives to discover the most appropriate and effective level of cloud computing engagement for them, and how innovative cloud technologies can be deployed alongside existing static deployments of hardware and software.
