SDDC Expo Silicon Valley Call for Papers Now Open

Join the world-class faculty exploring how to create networks that can be reconfigured quickly and centrally

The 4th International SDDC Expo, colocated with the 15th International Cloud Expo, 6th International Big Data Expo, 3rd DevOps Summit, 2nd Internet of Things Expo, and 3rd WebRTC Summit - to be held Nov. 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies.

Software-defined data center (SDDC) refers to a data center where all infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service. Control of the data center is fully automated by software, meaning hardware configuration is maintained through intelligent software systems. This is in contrast to traditional data centers where the infrastructure is typically defined by hardware and devices.

Software-defined data centers are considered by many to be the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing as it provides a solution to support both legacy enterprise applications and new cloud computing services.

Help plant your flag in the fast-expanding business opportunity that is Software Defined Data Center: submit your speaking proposal today!

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
