  • Like virtualization before it, container technology will evolve from a DevOps initiative to an enterprise requirement. Docker is leading that evolution as it promises to bring greater efficiency to the data center than we ever thought possible with the virtual machine construct. However, companies implementing Docker in production will realize that persistent data storage is not easy. As a result, the development of Docker to an enterprise class solution drives new requirements on the storage infrastructure:

    1. Hyper-Scalability
    2. Advanced but Flexible Data Services
    3. Multiple Access Methods
    4. A Software Foundation

    Join Storage Switzerland and Hedvig for our live webinar and learn:

    1. What are Docker Containers and Microservices?
    2. Why Does Docker Require a New Storage Paradigm?
    3. What are the Requirements of a Docker Storage Infrastructure?
  • The Cloud provider market is crowded and offerings vary greatly from provider to provider. How do you ensure that a Cloud product meets the particular needs of your business? Assistant General Counsel Dennis Garcia discusses how one goes about choosing a Cloud provider and provides tips and tricks as to how to approach the move to the Cloud within your organization to ensure a successful transition.
  • This webinar underlines the fundamental importance of the one of the most important phases in the BCM lifecycle – the BIA.

    Other - subsequent - phases such as selecting one or more business continuity strategies or the formulation of a BC plan, exhibit a much smaller space of choices than the BIA, which is primarily an information gathering stage, charged with understanding the business.

    Critically important information needs to be unearthed and, ideally, not one important aspect must be omitted or forgotten. This is the reason why ISO TC 292 (formerly 223), after developing ISO 22301 and ISO 22313, has embarked on developing a standard on the BIA: ISO 22317. It is being presented in another contribution at this conference.

    This webinar also focuses on a visualization and presentation method newly applied to the BIA process - in order to better understand a company’s processes, resources and their interdependencies.
  • Up until the past year or two, High-Performance Compute (HPC) environments and the enterprise data center have been separate domains. But now the data-intensive demands of analytics, migrations to cloud infrastructures and ever growing numbers of users looking to store large quantities of data are making the enterprise data center demand high-performance and scalability previously common only in HPC and Web provider environments. Not only are companies implementing HPC specific jobs like Big Data Analytics and geographic data distribution but virtualized and database environments are being challenged to increase density to support more users at lower operational costs. Should the traditional data center look at HPC storage solutions to meet these demands?

    Join Storage Switzerland and Data Direct Networks (DDN) to learn five reasons HPC storage is ideal for enterprises. In this webinar we will compare the needs of the enterprise data center to the capabilities of HPC storage to see if HPC is the ideal fit for the enterprise.
  • Join Cloud and security expert Jerry Wertelecky, as he explains how to secure your network in an SDN framework. He will explore the new risks and challenges for SDN technology.
  • We live in a world where cyber attacks are no longer a question of if, but when. This sessions starts with a discussion around how attackers have evolved their techniques using Advanced Evasion methodologies bypassing traditional security layers such as Network-based Firewalls and signature-based Intrusion Detection. The rise of targeted Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) has finally enabled companies to understand that traditional security solutions are no longer enough. During the session, we will cover the rise of Advanced Threat Protection solutions, where they fit in the Network, and how companies should use correlation and integration of Endpoints, Networks, Incident Response and Simulation to protect against APTs. Finally, we will discuss how you can successfully utilise Big Data Analytics to go beyond simply using a log correlation solution and proactively get ahead of attacks (or BANG) before they occur.
  • In advance of October's Executive Women's Forum, Security Researcher Lysa Myers will look at the evolving landscape for women in IT, risk management, information security and other privacy industries.
  • Inadequate security and dedicated cyber attackers have led enterprise data breaches to increase at an alarming pace. Staggering numbers of affected customers - and financial losses - are sending shock waves through the business world, and creating a sense of urgency around identifying solutions. Finding a way to ward off cyber intruders has become a critical challenge.

    There is a need to create value around company data. One way to do this is to ensure that the workforce knows and understands the threats that are out there and the measures that are in place to protect against them. Data security is not one size fits all, nor is a data security communication plan. Finding the ideal fit for any company may take trial and error, but an educated and mindful workforce will serve to support the mission of IT security teams tasked with keeping confidential information secure. Join this educational panel webinar to hear experts discuss how to realize data security potential across an enterprise.

  • Let’s face it; embracing new storage technologies, capabilities, and upgrading to new hardware often results in added complexity and costs. The reality is that when IT equipment, platforms, and applications do not integrate with one another, the resulting “sprawl” of storage islands and silos on disparate systems can be costly, risky, disruptive, and time-consuming. But it does not have to be that way.
