The infamous Marc Andreessen once said that “software is eating the world.”
And while this is being proven correct year after year, the missing link is how we’re looking to build, consume, and manage all of the software and data on a global scale for the hybrid cloud. Fortunately, one of the best ways to integrate different cloud environments is becoming more common and consumable at all technology skill tiers: APIs. This is the abstraction layer that is absolutely necessary to any successful business initiative and was commonly missing from infrastructure operations in a very big way. In this session, join Chris Wahl, Rubrik’s Chief Technologist and published author, as he discusses the challenges and benefits of hybrid cloud adoption across topics such as cloud management platforms, data transfer, compliance, and workflows. Learn how the use of RESTful APIs are helping solve real world, large scale challenges for enterprise IT shops looking to modernize and gain competitive agility. Hear how the DevOps movement and public cloud provider details on SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) are making the before unthinkable world of enterprise hybrid cloud something within reach.
