We’ll be showcasing presentations on Hybrid Cloud, including NetApp Private Storage (NPS) for SoftLayer; Data Fabric by NetApp; Enterprise Applications such as SAP and Oracle in the Hybrid Cloud; and a variety of presentations featuring NetApp’s product and solution portfolio. We'll also have presentations featuring solutions by NetApp Partner, Catalogic, showcasing transparent integration with NetApp and VMware snapshot technologies. 


We’ll also be hosting executives from Equinix who will be discussing their role in the NPS for SoftLayer solution and other IBM Cloud services. Also, be sure to visit our Cloud Infrastructure partners at InterConnect: RackWare at booth #841 and SAP at booth #860.



Breakout Session: Infrastructure as a Service


Join us on the “Cloud Infrastructure & IT Optimization” stream and the “Infrastructure as a Service” track to learn how the right Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) can make the difference in beating your competition to market. IaaS provides the open, elastic, economical virtual cloud resources, for the scale and speed, needed in today’s hybrid, private and public cloud environments.
