SLOUGH, 16th October, 2012: Logicalis, the international IT solutions, managed services and cloud provider, has been named 'EMEA Channel Partner of the Year' for managed services by independent analyst firm Canalys, at its inaugural Candefero Channel Partner of the Year Awards. Designed to honour outstanding performance by EMEA channel partners, Logicalis was recognised for building a sustainable services practice that continually invests in new areas.

The awards were presented at the annual Canalys Channels Forum EMEA in Barcelona, the largest independent channel conference in the region, that recognises high performance in five specific areas - revenue growth, online sales, mobility, managed services and innovation. From the large number of nominations received by the panel of analysts, Logicalis were selected as winners of the managed services category, following an in-depth evaluation into its sustainable investments for the future, business performance, demonstrated expertise and the resulting business value generated for its customers.

EMEA's channel community plays a critical role in driving success, for their customers as well as for the vendors whose products and services they carry.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
