Managing the cloud: Creating a unified cloud management strategy for your business

While much of the focus in cloud computing today centers on creating architectures for private, public, or hybrid clouds, there’s a distinct lack of conversation about what happens once the cloud architecture is built. Cloud management — the ability to manage disparate platforms, IT infrastructure and networks in a holistic fashion –will be increasingly critical in the future, and will in fact be a requirement for many of the mission-critical applications that today’s Fortune 1000 rely on for their core business.

If you’d like to understand the key principles for creating a unified approach to managing a large, cloud-based IT infrastructure, please join GigaOM Pro and Zenoss for an analyst roundtable entitled Managing the Cloud: Creating a Unified Cloud Management Strategy for Your Business on July 13 at 10 a.m. PDT.

  • Paul Miller, Cloud Curator, GigaOM Pro – Moderator
  • Bernard Golden, CEO, HyperStratus

Some of the topics we’ll discuss include:
