Designing a Private Cloud Strategy that meets Business Demands
Your enterprise supports hundreds (or thousands) of applications to meet business demands- and as demand increases, so does the number of applications. This growth increases the cost of deploying and managing data sources for these applications- putting stress on the IT budget that can stifle further growth. According to IDC, these pressures are setting the stage for major industry shifts driving the convergence of virtualization, cloud, automation, analytics, and the consumerisation of IT. During this event we will tackle this challenge by helping you design a datacenter strategy that provides the scalability of the private cloud needed to support the growing demands of the business with SQL Server 2012.

Session 1: An Application-Focused Approach to Designing your Private Cloud Infrastructure
Why do I need a Private Cloud in my organization? Can the Private Cloud help me deliver applications against service levels demanded by the business? How can I embrace these new technologies while containing my development, deployment and management costs?
In this infrastructure-focused session, we will show you how System Center 2012 can help you can take control of your environment and deliver IT as a service to the business. We will show you a self-service model that allows the business to deploy applications and consume data independently from the complexity of the underlying infrastructure. At the same time, we will show you how to design a datacenter infrastructure that benefits from the scalability and efficiency of the Private Cloud.
