Redefining The Hybrid Cloud At EMC World 2014

EMC World 2014 kicks off next week in Las Vegas, and Rackspace will be there in full force. We’ll be highlighting our decade-long partnership with EMC and discussing how we’re working together to redefine the hybrid cloud.

Here’s a look at what we’re up to as EMC World rocks the Venetian Monday, May 5 through Thursday, May 8.

Keynote Presentation
Wednesday, May 7, 2:30 p.m.
Rackspace CTO of Global Enterprise Solutions Sean Wedige (@swedige) will participate in the Isilon keynote presentation as a featured panelist. Wedige will also participate in an Isilon Birds-of-a-Feather panel discussion prior to the keynote at 1 p.m.

Breakout Presentation
Wednesday, May 7, 4 p.m.
Migrating Traditional Apps From On-Premises To The Hybrid Cloud” featuring Rackspace Cloud Solutions Architect Jaret Chiles (@jaretchiles)
Re-architecting legacy apps for the public cloud is very resource intensive. However, migrating apps to a hosted hybrid cloud that’s composed of bare-metal servers, VMware virtualization, EMC storage, and public cloud offers cloud-bursting benefits, but with less risk and cost. Join us and learn the five-step path to the hybrid cloud.

In-Booth Presentations
Tuesday, May 6 and Wednesday, May 7
We also have a number of presentations planned for the Rackspace booth at EMC World (booth No. 256). In-booth presentations are at the same time both Tuesday and Wednesday.
