'General Session | Driving the Transformation to Next Generation Cloud Data Centers'
With substantial growth in cloud services, over 2.5 billion connected users, more than 1000 exabytes of internet traffic and 15 billion devices accessing cloud services by 2015, transforming datacenters to support this growth can be complex. To address the challenges facing IT and realize significant benefits of cloud computing, it’s essential that cloud solutions are open, interoperable and built on standards. Jason Waxman, Intel Data Center Group GM, High Density Computing, will describe a multi-year vision for clouds that are federated, automated, and client aware and provide insights into relevant standards, next generation technologies that enable more secure, efficient, and simplified datacenters and best practices for deployment of interoperable cloud solutions that provide flexibility and choice.
