Avoiding the 1000 Euro VM in Your First Cloud - Tim Mackey, Citrix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today everyone is talking about clouds, and a few are building them, but far fewer are operating successful clouds. In this session we'll examine a variety of paradigm shifts IT makes when moving from a traditional virtualization and management mindset to operating a successful cloud. For most organizations, without careful planning the hype of a cloud solution can quickly overcome its capabilities and pre-existing best practices can combine to create the worst possible cloud scenario -- a cloud which isn't economical to operate, and which is more cumbersome to manage than a traditional virtualization farm.

Key topics covered include:

- Successful transition of operational and management paradigm
- How the VM density of clouds change Ops
- What it means to monitor the network in a cloud environment, at hyper-dense virtualization levels
- Preventing storage costs from outpacing
