SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Software Defined Infrastructure Summit, a conference and exhibition focused on software-defined infrastructure in enterprises and cloud provider data centers, will take place December 1- 3, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley.
The SDI Summit highlights the ways in which SDI software technology is transforming data centers worldwide, bringing a new approach to efficiently managing workloads running on hundreds, or thousands, of servers and storage devices housed within a data center, or reaching across a network to connect with one or more clouds.
"SDI – and the change it brings to the data center – will have a big impact on IT organizations and the businesses they support," said Jean S. Bozman, SDI Summit Program Chair, and Director of Infrastructure Research at Neuralytix, Inc. "The SDI Summit acknowledges this change by delivering two types of tracks: business tracks focused on management and business processes, and technical tracks focused on detailed technical information for IT professionals."
Key Topics at SDI Summit 2015
The SDI Summit offers pre-conference sessions on December 1 that provide overviews of SDI technology and deployment strategies for business attendees, and technical "how-to" sessions for IT professionals and software developers. The two-day conference on December 2-3 is organized into tracks focused on business, technical, and SDI software methodology.
The Summit program focuses on three distinct areas of server design: SDI-enabling software; software-defined storage (SDS); and SDI's impact on hardware computing platforms and hyper-converged systems.
Keynotes and plenary sessions speak to the overall scope of SDI-led changes in technology, and to the business transformation that results from SDI deployments.
Key topics include:
• Business impact of SDI software deployments
• Hybrid clouds, and links between clouds (public, private and hybrid clouds)
• Transformation of server/storage infrastructure
• OpenStack and application programming interfaces (APIs)
• Emerging industry standards for SDI
• Impact on App Dev and DevOps
• Software-defined storage (SDS)
• Support of software-defined networks (SDN)
• Management and control of virtualized data center environments
• Automation and orchestration for SDI-enabled data centers
• Provisioning and deployments using SDI software technology
• Hyper-converged systems infrastructure
