"When we set out to build our private cloud business, we outlined three customer-focused tenets to abide by. One, our foundation had to be secure. Two, it needed to be managed in an automated way. And three, of course, it needed to be performant."

David Robinson, CTO, STT Connect

Guided by these principles, David and his team made a strategic decision to embrace open solutions, and to have everything software-defined. Sharing the business and technology vision that launched a new web-scale cloud offering for enterprise customers and reseller partners, he will discuss the infrastructure requirements and benefits; the challenges of working with network engineers who hesitated in accepting a software-defined vision; and the best practices learned during the testing and implementation phases of their project. David will also explain why a web-scale cloud solution with software-defined networking enables STT Connect to offer a solution that is scalable and repeatable across their data centers.
