Cloud in a box is the ultimate oxymoron. Purchasing new infrastructure is both costly and time-consuming, which defeats the purpose of moving to the cloud in the first place. However, there are ways to build highly available and highly secure private or public clouds that leverage your existing infrastructure investments while removing the inherent availability and security risks that cloud introduces. For instance, IT organizations need to consider the ramifications of keeping the entire multi-tiered business service that runs across virtual and physical infrastructure, highly available and protected even in the face of a disaster.
In their session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, VR Satish, VP and CTO for the Security and Availability Management Group at Symantec, and Dan Graves,Cloud CTO at Symantec, will discuss what is needed to build a highly available, resilient, safe and compliant cloud that keeps costs in check and provides IT services at the speed required by your business.
VR Satish is VP and CTO for the Security and Availability Management Group at Symantec.
Dan Graves serves as Cloud CTO at Symantec. In this role, he is responsible for research and the development for Symantec's cloud product strategy across its entire enterprise security portfolio including policy and compliance, data loss prevention, encryption, authentication, identity, endpoint protection, mobile, email and web security, and systems management solutions.
Prior to his current role, Graves led product management for new acquisition integration, service provider security, Symantec Protection Center and gateway security products at Symantec. He has more than 20 years of experience in the technology industry, having led product design at companies like Sun Microsystems, Apple, NeXT, NetDynamics, Rockwell International's AI Labs, and NASA. He holds a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University with a research focus on neural networks, pattern recognition, and machine learning.
