Abstract: 

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on-demand can be very attractive to IT departments, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

Hear from Jim Thompson, Senior Systems Engineer at Avere Systems, on the IT and business benefits that cloud bursting provides, including increased compute capacity, lower IT investment, financial agility, and, ultimately, faster time to market.
