  • Gain valuable knowledge through a series of keynotes, panel presentations, breakout sessions and case studies

Step Ahead on Leading Issues

Trends such as big data and resource-intensive applications are driving the build-out of massive infrastructures. This requires decision-makers to have a solid foundation in the large-scale server, storage, and switching infrastructures – as well as operating systems, middleware, development and systems management tools that are intended to be used at scale. Some of these resources are trickling down from the long-established supercomputing realm – while others are bubbling up from the hyperscale Web application operators.

At Advanced Scale Forum, executives facing these challenges will be able to share their experiences by engaging directly with industry visionaries and peer executives, discussing the key issues driving these business challenges, and gaining valuable insight from each engagement.
