Event Details

Join us as we review our hybrid-cloud grid architecture used by Virtual Harmony (VH). On VH, we host over 12 grids and use the technology to support our classes, research meetings, and Global Learning Forum events. Each grid has a theme and a purpose, and during the session, we’ll describe our experiences and how we optimize server and data performance.
