  • If you run more then one solution when backing up and recovering your data it can be hard to keep track of which solution does what. Check out how our single solution can fill in all the gaps and make it less complicated to manage multiple solutions at one time.
  • The connected device has made our lives more mobile, efficient, flexible and easier to manage. Connected devices and apps help us with everything from fitness to managing our schedules and make music tailored to our current whim accessible and easy to play anywhere. Connected devices for our home such as thermostats, alarms and home automation, make managing our energy use simple and allow us to manage appliances and doors remotely. In the event of a problem they alert us so we can act wherever we are. Finally, the advantages of the connected device are making their way into our IT world.

    The limitations, complexity and fragility of traditional storage are now being supplanted by cloud connected storage. This new model for file (unstructured data) storage combines the scalability, durability, flexibility and mobility of a cloud service with performance and security of a local NAS system. Join us to learn how this new model can empower collaboration across distant locations while making IT's life easier by eliminating costly problems such as backup, DR, distribution and replication associated with the typical storage stack.

  • Inflexible, constrained, locked in, dependent are all terms we hear used to talk about the IT solutions being used in today’s datacenters. Datacenters are complex with a variety of physical, virtual, and cloud platforms for both computing and storage. Solutions that promise to make a datacenter more manageable, often lock you in to specific platforms or singular processes.

    Join this session with Andy Ebbs to learn about the top 10 technical capabilities needed to ensure that you are able to freely move your workloads to run on the best platform, and protect them wherever they are running.
  • The ability of public sector organizations to accomplish their missions depends on reliable connectivity. Now, more than ever, these network connections must be mobile, rugged, and secure – but most of all, they must be flexible.

    At the federal, state, and local level, as well as at institutions of higher learning, the opportunities to gain efficiency and manage budgets through mobile connectivity are increasing exponentially. Cradlepoint enables the public sector to quickly implement networking solutions that are powerful, flexible, easy to manage, and easy to scale; without busting tight budgets.

    Join us for a webinar to learn how Cradlepoint solutions make it easy for public sector organizations to adapt their networks to take advantage of 3G/4G LTE wireless to provide the strongest signal at the best price in any given location.
  • The “consumerization of IT” is largely represented by public cloud services. But when it comes to cloud file sync – a technology that is centered on storing, accessing, and sharing data – many businesses are taking pause at public hosting. In this BrightTALK exclusive webinar, learn why deploying cloud file sync in a private environment may be worth considering.

  • IRM is leading the debate on risk culture. Drawing upon the wealth of practical experience and expert knowledge across the institute, we have developed guidance for organisations wanting a greater understanding of their own risk culture and practical tools that can be applied to drive change.

    As seen in the business press every day, embedding risk management into an organisation to the extent that it reliably makes a difference is a difficult task. To achieve this, boards must keep how to manage risks high on their agenda, and to continue asking themselves, whether they have the right culture, people and processes.

    What do we mean by risk culture?

    Risk culture is a term describing the values, beliefs, knowledge, attitudes and understanding about risk shared by a group of people with a common purpose, in particular the employees of an organisation. This applies to all organisations from private companies, public bodies, governments to not-for-profits.

    What does a good risk culture look like?

    An effective risk culture is one that enables and rewards individuals and groups for taking the right risks in an informed manner.
  • With over half of companies not feeling well enough prepared for an IT disaster according to recent research, Ian Daly of Plan B Disaster Recovery will be sharing his best practices on how to build a DR solution you can trust. In this webinar we’ll cover:

    - What counts as an IT disaster?
    - What are the common causes?
    - How can you better prepare for an IT disaster?
    - Testing – what should you be testing and how often?
    - What level of reliability should you be striving to achieve?
    - How to maintain trust in your disaster recovery solution
  • James McAlister has been developing and facilitating exercises for over 30 years. He was the lead author for the BCI Good Practice Guidelines 2013 Chapter 06: Validation, which focuses on exercising. The webinar will introduce an exercise model and simple techniques to enable participants to conduct their own effective exercises.

    Virtualization and the emergence of private cloud solutions are providing organizations with the computing and infrastructure resources they need more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before. Yet managing these virtual resources presents new challenges for today's IT departments. To overcome these challenges, Dell Storage and VMware have been working together to create infrastructure to enable the private cloud. A central element of that infrastructure is virtualized shared storage. Please join us for an informational webinar where we'll explore questions such as:

    - What is private cloud computing?

    - What are the specific technologies needed to support the private cloud?

    - How do I identify key storage architecture attributes to optimize VMware environments?

    - How can I evolve my current infrastructure toward a private cloud model?

    - How does virtualized shared storage enable private cloud computing?
