KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Sujal Patel, Founder of Isilon® and President of EMC Isilon Storage Division
In 2001 Patel founded Isilon with the vision that big data would soon necessitate a shift away from traditional storage architectures and toward a new, scale-out paradigm. Today this vision has become a reality as scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) has emerged as the de facto storage platform for big data. Patel continues to lead Isilon’s business in enabling its customers to turn big data challenges into even bigger opportunities.

In this session, we'll explore a conceptual model that includes the requirements and constraints along with the logical design that shows the relationship of the components. Learn from the experience of the VMware cloud team.
Trust in the Cloud
Abstract
The IT industry is facing an opportunity to use the cloud to transform IT infrastructures, applications, and information management. However, before we can believe that the cloud is safe for real business, we need a secure foundation of dynamic controls and trustworthy measurement. This session explains key issues in enabling secure, compliant, and trusted cloud computing.
Simplifying Your Cloud Using EMC and Cisco Data Center Fabric
Abstract
Customers require ever-increasing levels of performance, availability, and mobility to handle unpredictable workloads. Equally important is the need to leverage existing resources and technology investments. This session demonstrates how Cisco and EMC deliver a seamless converged, scalable, and intelligent data center environment.
Intelligent Information Management for a Big, Cloudy World
Abstract
As cloud computing becomes the norm and strategies for managing big data take shape, the journey to business transformation becomes real.
