5G, Hyperscale, and Hyperconverged: The Future of IT | BraveIT Livestream
BraveIT is an interactive, thought leadership event designed for the modern IT professional happening on 9.19.19 in New York City aboard the Intrepid Seam Air & Space Museum. This livestream features two of our mainstage sessions:
*What 5G Really Means for IT*
For customers, 5G will mean faster speed and better coverage. For carriers, it means more customers and more towers. For IT, it means something else. There may be some not-so-immediately-obvious impacts from the new technology, like heavier loads on your applications and infrastructure due to the easier access to faster speeds, new sources of data (like IoT, Machine Learning and AI), and ensuring you have the right talent to handle the changes. In this session, we join IT experts in a discussion on the implications and solutions to adapting to the new networking technology.
Moderated by TierPoint CRO Tony Rossabi, the panel will feature LiveNation SVP Network, Gabriel Sassoon; PCCW Global CEO, Marc Halbfinger; CenturyLink, SVP, Core Network & Technology Solutions, Paul Savill; and IBM Cloud Global Offering Executive, Gabriel Montanti.
*Battle Royale: Hyperscale vs. Hyperconverged*
Hyperscale (a.k.a., public) clouds have been all the rage. But as more businesses look to the cloud for their data and applications, they’re asking some tough questions: “Is public cloud more economical than private cloud in all cases? Which type of cloud best addresses my company’s unique needs? How does hyperconverged infrastructure change the equation? Are we properly staffed to manage any of the options?” Industry experts and IT leaders will tackle these and similar questions, to help you make the best decision for your business.
Moderated by TierPoint President & CFO Mary Meduski the panel will feature Compass Datacenters Founder & CEO Chris Crosby; Nutanix COO, David Sangster; Goldman Sachs Managing Director, Technology, Media and Telecom, Jason Tofsky; Cowen’s Colby Synesael; and Upstack Chief Strategy Officer, Jeff August
