Live Webcast with IDC special guest: Why Multi-Cloud Strategies Require Hybrid Capacity Analytics!

Why Multi-Cloud Strategies Require Hybrid Capacity Analytics

IDC’s research shows the majority of today’s enterprise class organizations expect to rely on multiple clouds. Organizations need to make this transition in a way that maintains control over their applications, constantly optimizes the capacity being purchased, and doesn’t inadvertently create operational silos.

Join Andrew Hillier, co-founder and CTO of Cirba, and guest speaker, Mary Johnston Turner, IDC Research Vice President Enterprise Systems Management Software, to learn why workload aware multi-cloud capacity and migration analytics are becoming critical enablers to modern cloud strategies.

Learn about critical enablers to modern cloud strategies.
Major topics include:

Webinar: Critical Data for BootStack Clouds

Do you have or want to have a modern, agile, perhaps self-service, cloud infrastructure?  Are you struggling with or considering how many disparate workloads are deployed?  How will you gain useful insight into who's using which resources, and how do you appropriately charge users, departments, the customers of IT, for the resources they consume?

Webinar: Make Your Enterprise Storage DevOps Ready!

Fast, agile DevOps is the most effective way to rapidly deliver software. But DevOps environments rarely use enterprise storage systems because these systems generally lack the flexibility and agility that DevOps demands.  Instead, alternative infrastructure is typically deployed, creating a myriad of cost and management problems.  

Catalogic solves this with a software-based platform that complements enterprise storage with the required functionality that DevOps needs.

Announcement: Exclusive Data Protection MegaCast Webinar!


Data protection – backup, replication, business continuity, monitoring – is not always considered an IT pro’s most exciting work, but it is one of the most critical services provided by the IT organization.

Making matters even more challenging is the fact that there are many different approaches to data protection and that different people even define “data protection” differently than others. Some see data backup as the definition while others see data protection as a spectrum of services rather than just one niche need.
