It’s no secret that data is key to your most important business operations. As more people and devices get connected, you’re facing a flood of new data that’s only going to grow. Only the most successful enterprises are learning how to take full advantage of this soaring volume of data and unleash its full potential. Part of that equation includes infrastructure that can adapt to this new opportunity.


To help you bring modern data services to your existing apps, NetApp is hosting the free “Build a Data-Savvy Data Center” virtual event on November 9. This online experience will put you in touch with executives, thought leaders, and your peers to discuss how to get more from your data with all-flash solutions which will be available in real time and on demand. The speakers will be talking about the latest trends in digital transformation, reviewing advances in key technologies, and sharing examples of customer solutions.

Two Tracks to Accelerate Your Progress

Ravi Kavuri, vice president for NetApp’s Data Management Product Group, will set the pace with a short keynote at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. He’ll explore strategies to propel your business into the future by accelerating application performance, improving data center economics, and future-proofing your infrastructure.


Four sessions will dive deeper into a range of topics, followed by Q&As for knowledge sharing and interaction:

  • “Prepare for the Future of Flash” will review key architectural requirements for a modern data center, such as flash storage architectures, competitive comparisons, and how to take advantage of NVMe, NVMe-oF, and SCM innovations.
  • “Harness the Power of Hybrid Cloud” will help you learn how to simplify data management for any application, accelerate and protect data across the hybrid cloud, and future-proof your data infrastructure.
  • “Deliver Business Impact with Predictable Performance” will give you new insights into how leading flash technologies can accelerate mission-critical applications, use your resources more efficiently through performance control, offer integrated data protection, and help your IT team focus on business priorities instead of fire drills.
  • “Get Three Steps Ahead of Your Competition” will discuss key strategies for modernizing your data center and preparing for the future, including emerging technologies, investment protection, and approaches for moving to the cloud.

Interact with Experts and Build Knowledge

The speaker sessions are only part of what you’ll find at this virtual event. After these presentations, we’ll open up the Networking Lounge hosted by the NetApp A-Team of experts. A-Team members are NetApp partners, not employees that share their product experiences with our executives and subject matter experts. Their candid feedback helps shape decisions regarding our product roadmap. This is your chance to connect live with NetApp engineers and architects to ask questions and get answers.
