  • Transforming the Data Center with Dell Storage Recorded: Dec 8 2011 45 mins
    Sheryl Koenigsberg, Senior Manager: Storage Solutions Marketing. Dell
    When organizations look to streamline datacenter operations, they often discover that acquiring, managing, and maintaining storage can make up nearly 20% of the IT budget. Recognizing the opportunity to reduce that cost, Dell has built a game-changing portfolio of solutions that enable enterprises to better manage data growth, reduce storage costs, and simplify the management of their IT infrastructure. Those solutions are built on the Fluid Data architecture, which automates and optimized business growth and delivers the efficiency, agility and resiliency enterprises need to adapt to an ever-changing business environment. See how several customers, including Dell IT, have leveraged this portfolio to transform their datacenter.
  • Optimize VDI with Fluid Data Storage Recorded: Nov 10 2011 49 mins
    Tony Holland, Virtualization Product Specialist
    Balancing performance and cost are critical to a successful VDI project. A key component in this effort is architecting an efficient storage infrastructure, which can help reduce storage capacity requirements and simplify provisioning and management. This webinar will highlight recent advances and best practices in optimizing the storage infrastructure specifically for VDI environments.

    Join us to learn how you can:
    •Reduce the required storage footprint for large scale deployment
    •Minimize infrastructure costs
    •Automate data placement across multiple storage tiers for optimal performance and cost efficiency
    •Achieve the best combination of performance and space utilization
  • Architecting Storage Infrastructure for the Private Cloud Recorded: Oct 11 2011 49 mins
    Tim Sherbak - Director, Storage Solutions Marketing Enterprise Solutions Group at Dell
    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?
  • Interoperability Challenges for Virtualization Management Recorded: Sep 8 2011 55 mins
    Winston Bumpus, DMTF; Scott DesBles, Dell; Steffen Grarup, VMware; John Parchem, Microsoft; Shishir Pardikar, Citrix
    This session will look at the needs of customers for interoperable virtualization management standards. Virtualization which is an important cloud computing enabling technology, is driving customer requirements for management standards to improve their agility while reducing their TCO. The goal of virtualization management standards is to improve IT consumer agility and define a set of architectural semantics that unify the interoperable management of workloads and resources between enterprises of all sizes and cloud computing infrastructures.
  • Optimizing Storage Tiering & Replication in a VMware Environment Recorded: Sep 8 2011 43 mins
