This complimentary webinar, sponsored by Alcatel-Lucent, will review converged storage and data network.The data center sits on the precipice of a major revolution. The era of virtual computing is here and if organizations want to fully leverage the power of virtualization, the data center network needs to transform. A network capable of realizing all the potential benefits of virtual computing must eventually converge storage and data onto a single network.
However, storage convergence will not happen overnight because migrating to a converged storage and data network is not a trivial task. Most organizations should carefully assess the risk to decide the right time to start down this path. Migrating to a converged data/storage network requires a clear strategy, significant advance planning and should be done in stages to avoid putting the organization at risk.
This Webinar will address:
- Risks and benefits of moving to a converged storage and data network
- Criteria to be evaluated in defining a strategy for achieving a converged data center network
- Best practice recommendations
This Webinar is recommended for:
- IT Managers responsible for setting strategy for the Data Center Network
- Storage Networking Professionals concerned about the risks of convergence
- CIO’s looking to understand risk, benefits and a practical approach to convergence
- Zeus Kerravala (News - Alert), Affiliate, Yankee Group
