Event Description:
Like so much else in enterprise IT, the term “Data Management” was already broad but is taking on new definitions as visionary vendors look for ways to help their customers operate more effectively and efficiently. Data management encompasses features that help organizations better understand their data, its purpose, its location, and more. Data management capabilities are being introduced in everything from storage systems to data protection products to secondary storage solutions to database management platforms to security solutions and more.

In ActualTech Media’s inaugural Data Management EcoCast, we’ll set the stage with an independent presentation around all of the various technologies that can fall under the “data management” umbrella. From there, our audience will hear from the vendors that are participating in the event and discover how they are helping their customers navigate the data management waters.

Vendor Fit:
Any company with a story to tell around data management topics, including storage, data protection, secondary storage, backup/recovery, data governance, data architecture, databases, data security, data integration, and more.

Event Description:
Not every workload demands trillions of IOPS and terabits of throughput. In fact, a majority of an organization’s data doesn’t need this kind of performance. Moreover, as companies continue to grow their data capacity in reaction to ongoing demand from the business, much of that capacity comes thanks to non- critical needs, such as file sharing, email, video, and data backups.

The secondary storage market has emerged in recent years as an increasingly interesting conglomeration of the storage and data protection markets, although the combination of storage and data protection isn’t necessarily required. While this combination may not have been intended to launch the modern iteration of secondary storage, it’s clear that data protection takes a front-and-center seat as the primary use case in secondary storage. Although certain solutions go beyond the data protection use case, for many organizations, data protection defines the full breadth of needs around non-primary data storage.

Vendor Fit:
ActualTech Media’s Secondary Storage events are intended to educate IT staff and decision makers about this emerging space and introduce them to a series of solutions that can help them streamline their IT operations. By joining us for this event, enterprise IT vendors can participate in this educational process and showcase how their solutions can solve critical business challenges.

Event Description:
As companies seek ways to simplify their data center infrastructure environments to focus more on outcomes and workloads rather than the infrastructure, they are turning to converged, hyperconverged, and composable infrastructure solutions. These kinds of products promise to streamline IT operations and reduce costs. In fact, it’s safe to say that these kinds of solutions have become a revolution unto themselves. Even as this space continues white hot growth, IT decision makers and staff remain in the dark about what can happen with deployments. There is also no shortage of vendors in this space seeking to place their products into predefined categories even as they desire to differentiate themselves from the competition.

Vendor Fit:
ActualTech Media’s Converged, Hyperconverged, and Composable Infrastructure events place you front and center before an audience yearning to understand what these technologies can do for them and increasingly confused by the mixed messaging they’re hearing from various vendors. For vendors participating in these events, there is ample opportunity to shape the narrative and go before an audience ready to jump at the right solution.

Event Description:

The word “cloud” has been shredded by so many that no one really knows what it means in the context of product marketing anymore. And, there are so very many different ways to “do cloud” that buyers need guidance as to what the best path forward for them might be. At the same time, buyers have heard the stories about public cloud and are considering plans there, even as they face great trepidation in doing so.

More and more, hybrid and enterprise cloud scenarios are becoming the norm, but buyers need understanding for what options are open to them. ActualTech Media cloud events are intended to showcase offerings from across the cloud spectrum, from highlighting private cloud solutions to showcasing how companies can protect their data in a cloudy world to demonstrating how multi-cloud management solutions can reign in the chaos that can otherwise dominate a multi-cloud paradigm.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that has a cloud product, including infrastructure vendors with a cloud play, cloud management solutions, cloud- centric data protection solutions, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions, or SaaS product offering

Event Description:

Like virtualization before it, the container ecosystem is growing at a break neck pace, with solutions being introduced every day intended to address and support different aspects of the technology. Unlike the early days of virtualization, though, containers aren’t operating solely in the vacuum of the on-premises data center. This continually evolving market is forced to reckon with the realities faced by enterprise customers’ desire to deploy deeply integrated hybrid cloud architectures with containers running anywhere atop these geo-spanning fabrics. Further, containers represent an opportunity to fundamentally rethink application architectures in ways that other technologies simply can’t make possible.

For enterprise IT customers, implementing a container strategy requires knowledge of a lot of moving parts and a deep understanding of the key players in the container ecosystem. It’s also important to understand the kinds of application development and operations capabilities that containers can unlock, particularly at scale.

The ActualTech Media Containers EcoCast brings together the companies that are leading the containers charge and helps the audience understand the current state of this burgeoning market and what is important.

Vendor Fit:

Any company with a container story, whether that’s around containers themselves, orchestration, storage, data protection, hybrid cloud, security, and more. If you have a container- centric message, you’re a fit for this event.

Event Description:

As organizations continue their digital transformation efforts, their data center environments will also need to undergo continuous transformation to keep pace with the organizational shifts. Even more challenging, the entire concept of the “data center” itself is undergoing its own transformation as organizations continue their hybrid and multicloud endeavors that augment their on-premises systems. Suddenly what once was a room with four walls and air conditioning now encompasses locations across the planet. This dynamic opens up innumerable opportunities, but also brings new challenges.

What will these kinds of environments look like? What products and services are available to help organizations support the workloads of today while preparing for the fluidity of tomorrow? How can organizations ensure seamless fluidity between on-premises and cloud-bases parts of this new data center paradigm? The ActualTech Media Next Generation Datacenter EcoCast brings together vendors with compelling stories around how they address the current and future challenges surrounding the workload environments of their customers.

Topics area of interest for this event: Datacenter infrastructure, storage, networking, hyperconverged infrastructure, data protection, cloud, cloud management, disaster recovery, security, monitoring & performance, application management, virtualization.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that has a story to tell in one of the topic areas of interest.
