  • Here’s the good news. While the number of data sources organizations face is rapidly increasing, the cost to store data has never been cheaper. This trend – as well as big data technologies like Hadoop – has led to more valuable insights for organizations.

    But it’s also led to IT departments overburdened with requests from the business users they support. So where do we go from here?

    View this webinar that discusses data federation, a type of data virtualization that:

    • Provides a centralized governance and security layer.
    • Speeds the creation of virtual data views.
    • Makes it easier for business users to access the data they need.

    We’ll also demonstrate technologies like big data virtualization, federated data-as-a-service and data masking.
  • Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the hottest topics in the datacenter: VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOLs). VVOLs is the industry's first solution to enable native virtual machine-awareness across a broad range of SAN/NAS arrays. VVOLs will be packaged as a feature in VMware vSphere Standard Edition and above as well as in VMware vSphere ROBO editions, and is seeing a groundswell of interest from IT professionals, especially those involved in datacenter operations. The panel includes VVOL experts from four major vendors that have announced they will be implementing VVOLs into their storage. Some of the questions we will be asking them include: What immediate impact will VVOLs have on the datacenter? What should the early adopters look for in a VVOL-based storage solution? Should datacenters start to implement VVOLs right away or wait for VVOL.next?

    Panelists:
    David Glynn, Technical Solutions Engineer; Dell
    Eric Siebert, Worldwide Solutions Marketing Manager; HP
    Joel Kaufman, VMware Technical Director; NetApp
    Ben Bolles, VP Products; NexGen Storage
  • Hyper-converged storage is turning out to be the buzz phrase of the storage industry in 2015, one with as many confusing and contradictory definitions as there are vendors. In theory, the combining of server and storage tiers into a single entity should deliver better application performance and lower infrastructure costs. In practice, your mileage will vary.

    Join us for this webinar where industry expert Jon Toigo – chairman and co-founder of the Data Management Institute – will help to identify key criteria for making the right infrastructure decision for your business. Mr. Toigo will offer his key criteria in selecting a hyper-converged infrastructure model and he will survey the offerings of leading vendors to identify the “gotchas,” trade-offs and lock-ins of each option so you find the best fit for your company.
  • Private cloud deployments are going mainstream. The problem is that VM visibility and DNS, DHCP, and IP address management automation are still a huge challenge that can cause delays, manual work, and errors. Those days are over. Watch this webinar and learn how you can be enabled to put your private cloud networking on auto-pilot. See the next generation of network automation for cloud and virtual environments to help simplify your private cloud deployment.
  • Join us as Sumit Dhawan, SVP and GM of VMware Desktops, unveils the next wave of application and desktop innovations:

    - Six key new enhancements to Horizon 6
    - Features that help you deliver unlimited access to desktops and apps at lower costs, with better performance (think 3D!) - and at unprecedented scale
    - New technology demonstrations that bring together virtual networking, storage, desktops and apps
  • Earlier this year, Moka5 conducted a survey about how enterprises are currently using cloud-based services and how they would prefer to use them. The results are in and the findings are eye opening. Join Moka5 VP of Marketing Kris Bondi for an overview of the adoption and usage trends as well top-of-mind security concerns for IT decision makers.
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) has now become a mainstream term but much of the attention is focused on the latest gadgets rather than its potential in super-charging efficiencies of every industry sector. Whether it's using connected devices to monitor the health of a patient or an elderly relative in their homes, GE"s smart jet engines that transmit terabytes of data on its condition in-flight or ensuring miners' safety and productivity with integrated communications, tracking and real-time analytics; Internet of Things can have a monumental impact on global economy, with the forecast of over $14 trillion in the next two decades, according to latest research by Accenture.

    But what does this all mean for IT professionals? Beyond the trade show gadgets, IoT initiatives require immense support from all IT functions. Collecting, storing and alayzing immense amounts of data, which can be easily accessed in the cloud at any time and securely shared across connected devices is no easy feat. Moreso, a standardized set of guiding principles is essential for governance and proper implementation of every supported initiative.

    Join this expert panel session, featuring some of the leading industry minds, as they share unique perspectives and vision into into the future of IoT and join the conversation in an interactive Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

    Panelists include:
    - James Hogan, Managing Partner, Vista Ventures
    - Mac Devine, Vice President SDN Cloud Services and CTO, IBM Cloud Services Division
    - Stephen Mellor, CTO, Industrial Internet Consortium
    - Jeff Smith, CTO & EVP, Numerex
    - Darin Andersen, CEO, CyberUnited
  • Cloud is changing the IT landscape in a fundamental way. It is transforming the way companies think about and deploy IT which, of course, includes storage.

    Join this session where Elan Freedberg will offer tips and suggestions for companies facing the challenges associated with cloud adoption and migration. Specifically, for IT and storage practitioners he will provide:

    - Practical advice for embarking on the “cloud journey”
    - A framework for thinking about workloads in the cloud
    - Suggested storage solutions to onboard to cloud effectively and efficiently
    - Examples of customers using IBM storage solutions for their cloud
  • Cloud computing is all about improving agility and efficiency for organisations but the focus is often on the speed to provision infrastructure and services. But what about all the ongoing management and maintenance processes that go with it? If you are going to improve the deployment of services using public or private cloud it is important to look at how you improve the efficiency of the processes around it.

    Learn how process automation technology can help you automate common tasks and processes to improve the speed of delivery, improve the quality of services and take out cost.
  • The rapid virtualization of the enterprise’s data center and the growing acceptance and consumption of cloud-based services are changing the way enterprises do IT.

    While this “cloud revolution” provides clear and substantial business and operational benefits, it brings a fundamental change to compute and storage deployment and use, data flows, network architecture and security.

    This webinar will provide a glimpse into the private and hybrid cloud impact on security in terms of requirements, architecture and the solutions available.
