Controlling the Cost of Your First Cloud - Tim Mackey, Citrix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today everyone is talking about clouds, and some are building them, but far fewer are operating successful clouds. In this session we'll examine a variety of paradigm shifts must IT make when moving from a traditional virtualization and management mindset to operating a successful cloud. For most organizations, without careful planning the hype of a cloud solution can quickly overcome its capabilities and existing best practices can combine to create the worst possible cloud scenario -- a cloud which isn't economical to operate, and which is more cumbersome to manage than a traditional virtualization farm. Key topics covered will include; transitioning the operational paradigm, the impact of VM density on operations and network management, and preventing storage cost from outpacing requirements.
