The financial services sector faces unique challenges when planning a virtualisation strategy. While the benefits of virtualisation are clear in terms of productivity and cost efficiencies, the risks, performance and compliance challenges are greater for this sector than any other.

Juniper Networks, in partnership with ITWeb, aims to address the financial services sector’s data centre virtualisation concerns and challenges at this free executive breakfast. IT professionals working in banking, insurance, trading and other financial services will discover how careful data centre architecture can ensure virtualisation that is compliant and secure, with better resiliency and reduced latency.

With the right architecture and solutions in place, data centre virtualisation can be simplified and more secure, enabling even high-volume trading without performance issues,” says David Naude, account manager at Juniper Networks South Africa.
