  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators

  • What’s best for VDI Hybrid or All-Flash Storage Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
  • Unacquainted Friends: Virtualization and Big Data Mar 11 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Big data and virtualization have seldom had their paths intersect to this point as, like most breakthrough innovations, big data has been delivered in very tightly integrated packages during the initial phase of adoption. However, with an increasing number of enterprises embracing a “virtualized first” approach to their IT infrastructure, broad-based acceptance of big data will require a more modular and VM-centric mode of consumption going forward. This session will focus on how these complementary technologies can come together to better yield big knowledge from big data analytics.
  • Improving App Performance with All Flash Arrays and Software-defined Storage Mar 10 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
