The new storage appliances target business continuity and performance hungry applications and workloads by utilizing the high-availability and adaptive caching software features supplied by DataCore's storage hypervisor. The appliances consist of various models with support for iSCSI or Fibre Channel networks, cross-site synchronous and asynchronous mirroring, auto-tiering, thin provisioning, snapshots, continuous data protection CDP and additional high end storage management features. In redundant configurations, the DX50+ / DX80+ can be used as a cost-effective business continuity solution for mission-critical applications.

The Fujitsu Forum is one of Europe's largest IT events. Participants are professionals, IT managers, channel partners and Fujitsu technology partners. In 2011, more than 10,000 IT professionals from around the world visited the Fujitsu Forum in Munich.

Bytec GmbH, headquartered in Friedrichshafen, is the largest server and storage distributor of Fujitsu in Europe. Bytec's motto is "computer science with reason" and applies this guideline to how it adds value to the delivery of products by providing needed expert knowledge and skilled services.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
