According to 451 Research, 60% of all business workloads will run on cloud platforms by 2019 — and this trend looks unstoppable. That makes intelligent workload placement more critical than ever. To reap the full agility and efficiency benefits of cloud technology, you need a granular understanding of all your options: hosted private cloud, on-premises private cloud, managed public cloud, hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, etc.
Rackspace engineers and architects have deep experience with every type of cloud deployment, and we’ve helped thousands of businesses identify the optimal platform for every kind of workload. Join our experts as they discuss the latest research on workload placement trends and share best practices for maximizing cloud performance.
Key topics we'll review:
- Assessing your cloud journey strategy to ensure your move from on-premises to cloud
- Considerations when moving applications and their workloads to cloud
- A one-size-fits-all strategy is not practical for every organization, and you may need a multi-cloud environment to meet security, compliance and performance needs
McKesson, the largest distributor of pharmaceuticals in North America, also faced many of the challenges related to transformation discussed in this series.

They now have a foundation that provides numerous organizations and business units with secure, compliant and fully managed Azure cloud infrastructure.
In this webinar, McKesson’s IT leader joins us to walk through their transformation journey and share insights to help you along your path.
- McKesson’s pain points, transformation journey and outcomes
- Takeaways from Rackspace experts and McKesson’s IT leadership on the process
- The value of an experienced technology partner coupled with operational support
- Finding the expertise that you need throughout your cloud journey
The average company runs more than 300 applications — all of them with unique requirements for optimal performance.

Security issues pose a nearly existential threat to the digital economy, and today’s businesses are taking a hard look — or a hard second or third look — at the security around their critical assets. In this environment, it’s natural to ask: What’s the most secure cloud platform?
The answer is…It depends. But understanding which factors determine the relative security of a given platform — cloud type, capability profile, etc. — is key to optimizing your own security posture and avoiding the potential of catastrophic exploitation.
Join Rackspace Director of Security Strategy Jarret Raim and Cross-Platform Marketing Lead Robert Sawyer as they address:
- Security implications of public vs. private cloud
- Technical tradeoffs required by security operations
- Best practices in building security operations

Red Hat Summit is all about open source. This year, we’re focusing on the endless possibilities of open source. The ideas worth exploring.
Because what draws us together each year isn’t the technology alone; it’s what we can do with it. Open source technology gives us a platform for imagination, a focal point to collectively push for new possibilities. Think about it: Automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning—these are all gifts we gave ourselves so we have a little more time to wonder not only “What if?” but also “What for?” and “With whom?”
Visit us at Red Hat Summit 2018.
