SDDC Still More a Project than a Product or Service

At Cloud Expo, SUPERNAP’s Mark Thiele to discuss where and how a business might benefit from SDDC

Cloud Expo® New York Early Bird Savings here!

Simply defined the SDDC promises that you'll be able to treat "all" of your IT infrastructure as if it's completely malleable. That there are no restrictions to how you can use and assign everything from border controls to VM size as long as you stay within the technical capabilities of the devices. The promise is great, but the reality is still a dream for the majority of enterprises.

In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, EVP, Data Center Tech, at SUPERNAP, will cover where and how a business might benefit from SDDC and also why they should or shouldn't attempt to adopt today.
