A series of free seminars has been announced for May 2012 to help businesses understand how they can optimise their infrastructure to get the most from cloud computing technology. The seminars, held in London, Edinburgh and Leeds, will be run by Intergence, a cloud consultancy that was recently named as a supplier for the UK government’s cloud computing procurement project, G-Cloud.
The seminars will be held on the following dates:
May 9th – Leeds at The Queen’s Hotel
May 11th – London at Royal College of Surgeons
May 16th – Edinburgh at The Radisson Blu Hotel
Presenting at the seminars will be Peter Job, Chief Executive Office at Intergence, Robert Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Steve Turner, VP of Optimisation and Rupert Ogilvie, Optimisation Consultant. Topics covered include:
- Managing the high volume of data created by virtualisation and cloud computing.
- Troubleshooting virtual networks and persuading the business that mission critical applications are safe in the cloud.
- The evolution of the data centre
Intergence argues that businesses need to review their existing assets and understand how the can be optimised before migrating to a cloud infrastructure, and doing so will save resources.
Peter Job said, “The health check seminar will cover security of data and applications within the cloud with a focus on how businesses can ensure their data remains confidential and secure. The seminars will also examine how compliance can be maintained with local data protection requirements regarding where and how the data is held.”
