Event Details

geekSessions 2.2: Network & Infrastructure Scalability

In our last event we looked at the changing world of Data Scalability. For our 2.2 event we're bringing in the experts to dive into the complex topics of Network & Infrastructure Scalability. In this Session we'll look at the architecture of Web-scale infrastructures and investigate issues like Buy vs. Build, Cloud Technologies, Storage, and System Scalability. We'll also give special attention to the State Of The Network in 2011 with issues like IPv4 exhaustion, more speed, more threats and the compromises between Performance, Reliability, Accessibility, Security and Cost. That's just for starters!

Join us for a great discussion and a great networking event!
