The Private Cloud

Date: 3rd Mar 2011

Venue: Marco Pierre White's L'Escargot

spend an evening with us at the world-renowned L'Escargot in the heart of London's Soho-one of the oldest Michelin starred restaurants in the country.

A perfect setting for an evening of fine dining, discussion and networking.

Many companies are seeing private cloud as the logical next step, but are unsure of the implications of this new paradigm in enterprise computing, much less exactly where to start.

This CBR Dining Club will ask what is meant by private cloud, and also look at the implications in terms of security, governance, quality of service and management.

For instance, Gartner analysts have said that many companies will use virtualisation as a stepping-stone to private cloud computing. Yet the analyst firm also noted that security, governance and quality of service must all be approached very differently in virtual and private cloud environments, and not "bolted on" as an after-thought.

According to the research firm, private clouds will require security services that can separate workloads with different trust levels and qualities of service. But do companies have the level of transparency and control over their various workloads

Lots for you and your peers to discuss in the exquisite surrounding of L'Escargot, first opened in 1927 and serving the finest in French food all under the keen, critical eye of the infamous Marco Pierre White. Joining us for this fabulous evening will be a speaker from our sponsor Compuware (Imad Mouline). So join us for a wonderful 3 course meal and drinks, compliments of CBR and our sponsors for the evening.

The evening is free to attend. Places are limited and are strictly reserved for CIOs/IT Directors and Senior IT executives of large enterprise.
