CWO : DIGITAL and Pure Storage present a virtual experience – with real wine

Harnessing Hybrid-Cloud for Greater Speed & Agility

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

This September, join CWO : DIGITAL and special host Pure Storage for an exclusive virtual event as our expert speakers discuss the impact of hybrid-cloud on the future technology landscape. Over a selection of fine wines delivered straight to your door, discover how you can power effortless bi-directional data mobility simply by modernising your IT infrastructure.

Hybrid-cloud migration results in greater agility, reduced cycle time and consolidation of cost. But the challenge rests in how to execute this process safely whilst maintaining live operation and maximising flexibility. The solution? Enabling a modern data experience for seamless application mobility.

For IT leaders seeking faster innovation and increased flexibility, the cloud consumption model is the only option. Join Field CTO and host speaker Patrick Smith as he explores how hybrid cloud has created an opportunity to achieve new certification for IT professionals and a means for businesses to tap into innovation at an accelerated speed.

Other takeaways from the evening will include:

  • How building-in flexibility and choice can increase confidence and accelerate the adoption of a cloud platform
  • The optimal application architectures for cloud adoption and the trade-offs that are typically made
  • Balancing speed of adoption and cost-efficiency; what to move and when
  • How to manage, and make decisions regarding your on-premises technology in preparation for moving applications to the public cloud

Exclusive to just 12 attendees, throughout this interactive event you’ll have the opportunity to network with your peers and discover new, more effective cloud strategies. Our expert wine speaker, Julian Chamberlen will be on hand to guide you through a virtual wine-tasting and, following some light-hearted competition, crown one lucky attendee the ultimate grand slam title: Chief Wine Officer!

Register now to discover how you can empower your cloud migration process and achieve a future-ready state.
