Web-Scale IT in the Enterprise

In IT today, there's a lot of focus on how large cloud providers like Amazon and Facebook are taking a new approach to infrastructure architectures and practices in order to deliver services on a massive scale. The success of "web-scale IT" (Gartner coined the term) has led enterprises to consider how they can apply the approach to their operations for better speed, agility, and efficiency.

In this video, JR Rivers, CTO and co-founder of Mountain View, Calif.-based Cumulus Networks, talks about how enterprises can incorporate web-scale IT and how it changes the way IT teams operate.

You can hear more from Rivers live and in person at Interop ITX in Las Vegas, where he will present "Goodbye Traditional IT Buying, Hello Web-Scale IT." Don't miss out! Register now for Interop ITX, May 15-19.
