From Virtualization to Private Cloud, Part 3: Optimize and Automate IT in the Cloud 


This webinar is the third session in the
From Virtualization to Cloud webinar series.

Cloud success relies on automating key service management processes to optimize the run-time operation of dynamic workloads in a shared-resource environment.

In part 3 of the From Virtualization to Cloud webinar series, you'll learn how to automate effectively and optimize service delivery in a hybrid cloud environment. We will explore automating resource changes and workload moves, including updating infrastructure and tooling to enable low-touch management of dynamic workloads. By the end of this webinar, you'll know how to:

  • Expand automation to include resource changes, workload moves, and application life cycle management
  • Manage hybrid and heterogeneous cloud environments
  • Update service management processes and documentation
  • Enable continuous compliance
Registrants will receive a link to the on-demand recording after the live event and a corresponding whitepaper for Part 3 of the From Virtualization to Cloud webinar series.
