Thank You for Attending

Traditional approaches to the IT infrastructure are quickly outliving their viability. Cloud, mobility, big data, and other trends are increasing the workload and the complexity of the government enterprise, driving up capital expenditures while driving down performance. What’s needed is a new approach.

The solution is web-scale infrastructure, a software-defined approach that provides the scalability and agility that today’s government enterprise requires, while also reducing capital and operating expenses.

Attendees learned how web-scale infrastructure can fit the needs of your agency. Topics addressed included:

  • How to transition to web-scale infrastructure without buying special-purpose hardware
  • How to improve performance by integrating compute and storage platforms
  • How to make scalability more predictable by distributing data and services
