ServiceNow to Demonstrate IT Operations Automation at Gartner Data Center Conference

ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), a leading provider of cloud-based services to automate enterprise IT operations, today announced it will demonstrate how enterprises are automating IT operations in booth #126 at the Gartner Data Center Conference taking place Dec. 3-6, 2012 in Las Vegas. ServiceNow will also feature a presentation showing how transformational IT services enabled the American military to operate effectively while facing marked increases in cyber threats and geopolitical tensions.

  • Demonstrations and discussions in Booth 126, Gartner Data Center Conference, Dec. 3-6
  • Presentation from Retired Lieutenant Colonel Michael J. Devine III from Agility Development Group on Dec. 5 at 3:00 p.m. PST
  • ServiceNow is a silver sponsor of the conference

Operating a data center requires processes and practices designed to better manage cloud, physical and virtual resources, and provide more proactive lifecycle administration. Today, most data center provisioning is a time-consuming process that is not fully automated. With flat IT budgets and rising business demands, IT organizations are looking to automate services to become more responsive to business needs and have greater agility to fulfill business opportunities.

ServiceNow’s cloud-based software helps companies to consolidate and automate IT operations and enable self-service capabilities to reduce the cost and increase the speed and quality of delivering IT services. ServiceNow includes end-to-end lifecycle automation for managing VMware virtual machines (VMs) to curb VM sprawl and minimize the time required to provision a VM from weeks to minutes.

During the conference, ServiceNow will feature Retired Lieutenant Colonel Michael J. Devine III from Agility Development Group, Inc. as a speaker in its solution provider session. Devine will share his experience providing IT logistics support for American military forces and how to transform government IT given the dramatic increase in cyber threats and geopolitical tensions. The session will be held Dec. 5, 2012, 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. PST in Venetian Ballroom F at the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino.

Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, shared success stories from a few folks who have already started using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level, they’ve been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of all, they’ve got predictable, manageable storage performance – at a level conventional storage can’t match. ...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and storage creates a platform for consolidation, migration and enabling digital transformation.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
