San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) September 20, 2016
Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global leader in hyperscale cloud and hyperconverged infrastructure, has announced the lineup of speakers for Silicon Valley’s first Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Conference, to be held at QCT’s US Solution Center in San Jose on Thursday, October 6. The invitation-only event will bring together leading IT hardware and software giants to showcase a full spectrum of HCI technologies and practices that are trailblazing this next new IT frontier.
Bearing the theme “Open, Ready, Transformative,” HCI 2016 is the first Silicon Valley conference dedicated to the theme of hyperconvergence, an approach to cloud datacenter architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage and networking resources into a single, easily deployable and scalable rack-level system. Hyperconverged solutions offer the benefits of speed, efficiency, ease of use, scalability and significant cost savings.
The event comes as trends like the Internet of Things (IoT) drive the deployment of billions of connected devices running millions of services, all hosted on thousands of clouds. This transformation is unlike previous technology shifts in IT. New business opportunities emerge as a new generation of digital-first, cloud-first consumers enter the market, consumers that expect digital services to be fast, innovative and available everywhere.
This transformation is happening not only among high-profile, web-first companies. Rather, it’s affecting every industry. The HCI Conference will examine how businesses are using HCI to support increasingly intelligent algorithms to enable smart machines and systems, automating more services and supporting businesses in delivering differentiated customer experiences.
Speakers slated for HCI 2016 include:
- Broadcom: Charlie Kawwas, chief sales officer
- Hedvig: Avinash Lakshman, CEO and founder
- Intel: Diane Bryant, executive vice president and general manager, Data Center Group
- Liteon: Victor Lee, president, Power Systems Solution
- Microsoft: Erin Chapple, general manager, Global Windows Server & Services Management
- Open Compute Foundation: Rocky Bullock, CFO/Interim CEO
- OpenStack Foundation: Jonathan Bryce, executive director
- QCT: Mike Yang, president
- Red Hat: Darrell Jordan-Smith, vice president, Worldwide Telecom Service Provider Sales
- Seagate: Raj Rajagopalan, vice president, Cloud and Hyperscale Segment
- VMware: Ray O’Farrell, executive vice president and chief technology officer
In addition, multiple breakout sessions will be led by experts from Canonical, Cloudian, CoreOS, Hedvig, Intel, Lintes, Mesosphere, Microsoft, Midokura, Mirantis, PLUMgrid, QCT, Red Hat, Samsung, Seagate, Toshiba and VMware.
Mike Yang, president of QCT said, “As a leader in hyperconverged datacenter solutions, QCT is proud to host this gathering of IT luminaries to collaborate on ways to extend the power of hyperconvergence and software-defined data centers to customers of many sizes, not just the hyperscale players. The expertise that will be on display here at our US Solutions Center on October 6 represents the collective ingenuity that will pioneer the next era of data center solutions and power revolutionary advancements in every industry around the world.”
