Topic of discussion:

Impact of Cloud Computing in Education

Cloud computing may have transformational potential, but its emergence has created an urgent and pressing question in the minds of today's IT leaders: How do we incorporate cloud computing into Education and existing datacenter operations? The reality is that - while cloud computing holds tremendous promise for education and enterprise IT - it is not a silver-bullet solution. Today's IT leaders are trying to determine the right blend of internal, external, physical and virtual as the blended "fabric" of their next-generation datacenter.

Join this important panel discussion to hear from leading thought leaders on the requirements and considerations for the next-generation datacenter.
