Background on the panel: Enterprises are continuing to embrace the cloud – finding both operational and cost benefits. However, there is a lack of enterprise-grade, cloud-based technologies that will support the workloads enterprises have efficiently and securely. And this is holding back cloud adoption for many organizations. This panel session will discuss how the enterprise cloud is being built and the infrastructure and services that are required for the promise of the cloud to become a reality at enterprise scale.
