Webcast: New tricks. Deploy Private Cloud.

New Tricks. Deploy Private Cloud

Topic: Many organizations are looking at public cloud, or are already there. While public clouds provide many benefits, it’s not the solution for all applications. As many S3 customers experienced recently, public cloud outages aren’t unusual. Additionally, some highly transactional workloads often surprise you with larger-than-expected monthly bills and some enterprise-class applications still need the incredibly low latency of all-flash arrays to meet SLAs. Join us as we show how certain all-flash solutions powered by automation, self-service, predictive analytics capabilities and tight integration with vCenter and vRO can help solve your enterprise cloud needs.

Speakers: Brad Schechter, Tintri
