We’re combining our experience in the physical and digital spaces to bring Chief Wine Officer to your door.
The networking continues!

CWO : DIGITAL, Rackspace Technology and AWS present a virtual experience – with real wine

Activating Cost Optimisation Through Cloud Resilience

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

CWO : DIGITAL and special host Rackspace are inviting just 15 technology innovators to a digital networking experience – with a selection of fine wines we’ll deliver straight to your door. Alongside a masterclass in wine tasting from a Master of Wine, our expert speakers will discuss the business challenges and benefits associated with cost optimisation, and how organisations like yours can overcome these challenges and achieve their goals through AWS-inspired cloud resilience.

According to Gartner, organisations without a cost optimisation plan can overspend by over 70%. As a result, IT leaders are now being tasked with leveraging the performance benefits of the cloud in order to drive innovation on an ever-shrinking budget. Organisations can achieve this is by adopting an optimisation and management platform that combines direct access to AWS Support offerings with the leading technology necessary to keep workloads running at peak performance.

This December, join our industry experts and learn how to successfully operate an AWS environment at scale with the best-of-breed cost management practices. You’ll gain deep insights on your AWS spend, how you can maximise your cost savings, and actionable insights to help you maintain a secure, high-performing and resilient cloud environment.

Expect to be educated and entertained while we put your taste buds to the test with some lighthearted wine-themed competition culminating in one lucky attendee being crowned the ultimate accolade: Chief Wine Officer.
