Kapoor commented, “Among the technology factors that will serve as enablers for the delivery of cloud services, virtualization has the greatest impact since it provides a foundation for delivering cloud solutions. Virtualization helps to build clouds by creating logical instances that can be provisioned on-demand. Beyond virtualization, there are three additional steps required to establish a fully self-sufficient private cloud infrastructure. It is important to understand each of these steps and their role in enabling cloud computing.”
The summit wrapped up with an Interactive Panel Discussion on ‘Data Center Sustainability – What have we done and what should we be doing?’ and participants included Richard Jones, IT Operations Director Jones Lang LaSalle; Roger Lee, Head of IT, Southeast Asia, AECOM; George Wang Senior Director, Infrastructure Technology & Data Centre Operations, NOL; and Aaron Tan Dani, Chairman, Iasa Asia Pacific, IASA.
