Data Lakes, the SDDC and Hybrid Clouds

Tuesday, 10:00-11:30am, Hall A

The quest for business advantage requires more dynamic and responsive IT infrastructure. VMware is leading a shift to software-defined data centers (SDDC) to virtualize, pool and automate compute, network and storage resources. Hear how the SDDC will leverage software-defined storage capabilities from EMC, and how VMware enables enterprises to move to a hybrid cloud model with compatibility between on-premise and off-premise IT resources. Another redefining trend is the rapid adoption of data lakes and new data fabrics that rely upon scale-out storage architectures. Powering this trend is Pivotal, which is building the platform for rapid development and integration of new, cloud-based applications that can store, and reason over, vast quantities of data — and ingest huge numbers of events and react in real time.
