  • Considerations in Data Center Transformation
    Considerations in Data Center Transformation Tom Parker, Solutions Product Manager, Lenovo and Robert Campbell, Senior Global Technical Alliance Manager, VMWare Recorded: Aug 16 2017 43 mins
    VMware's Software Defined Data Center is about data center transformation. Join Lenovo and VMware for a discussion about hybrid cloud, storage, and other things to consider in your data center transformation. Consider a hyperconverged design based on VMware VSAN, or work with traditional storage. Find the right path for your enterprise, so your team can focus less on keeping the lights on and more on data governance and enterprise business unit needs.

    In this webinar, Lenovo and VMware will discuss validated and tested designs working with the most recent VMware software releases and Lenovo’s ThinkSystem servers and infrastructure based on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. Join us to see how Lenovo and VMware enable you to transform your IT by building a high performing, serviceable, and secure future-designed data center.

  • Are You Ready for What’s Next in Hyper Converged Infrastructure?
    Are You Ready for What’s Next in Hyper Converged Infrastructure? Gabe Chapman: Sr. Manager, NetApp HCI GTM and Cindy Goodell: Sr. Product Marketing Manager, NetApp HCI Recorded: Jul 19 2017 39 mins
    Initial versions of HCI solutions were designed to reduce the complexity of deploying storage and compute resources. To achieve simplicity, vendors had to make trade-offs that created performance, flexibility and consolidation limitations that affected how and where HCI could be utilized in your enterprise datacenter. NetApp HCI is the first enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure to be designed specifically to solve for these first-generation challenges.

    Join us for this webinar to learn how NetApp HCI enables you to confidently deploy a hyper converged infrastructure in the core of you most demanding datacenters by:
    •Delivering unique Quality of Service limits that allow the granular control of every application.
    •Scaling compute and storage resources independently so you only buy what you use.
    •Integrates into the NetApp Data Fabric for enhanced data portability, visibility and protection.
