Software defined architectures are all the buzz, helping to start conversations about transforming customer data centers from cost centers into competitive advantages. But in today’s economy, no business can afford to stand still. And a business is only as agile as its IT organization allows. An agile data center and IT department can:
•Protect the infrastructure and easily recover if faults are found or predicted
•Control access to data while meeting compliance and regulatory requirements
•Deliver services quickly, resiliently, and cost-effectively

Digital technology has disrupted the relationship between banker and customer from a transaction focused, in-branch, in-person experience to a multi-channel digital experience where the customer is in control. Despite the proven benefits of a customer-driven digital marketing approach, companies still struggle to make the shift because of increasingly strict compliance requirements and customer data locked in disparate legacy systems. Financial services companies must adapt and pivot to the customer in order to remain relevant in today's world.

The developed world's global Internet registries have officially depleted their supply of free IPv4 addresses. IPv6 is not just the future—it’s already here (65% of Verizon’s traffic is over IPv6!). Some organizations even have their IPv6 allocations already. But since a single site assignment in IPv6 contains 1 trillion, trillion, addresses (or 279 trillion Internets!), designing an effective plan can be both intimidating and unnecessarily time consuming. With that many addresses, where do you start? Join us for this webinar as Tom Coffeen, Infoblox IPv6 evangelist and O'Reilly author of IPv6 Address Planning, discusses how to design, deploy, and successfully adopt an effective IPv6 addressing plan. Both IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 adoption are real and happening now. Take the first step to realizing an effective IPv6 address plan and adoption strategy, and watch this webinar today.

Enterprises of all sizes have started using the public cloud for some workloads. Backup and recovery and archiving are two prime examples of such workloads. But can the public cloud be used as a disaster recovery site? What are the pros and cons of such an approach? What best practices should apply? Is it only for small businesses that do not have a secondary site of their own? Or is there relevance even for larger organizations?

Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).
Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.
With Zerto Virtual Replication:
•Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
•Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
•Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
•Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
•Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
•Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
•Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon

The growth of unstructured data, especially files, continues unabated and strains datacenter resources. Not just storage of that data, but protecting it, providing for disaster recovery, and making that data available in remote offices for collaboration all wreak havoc on staff and budgets. It’s time for a new approach to NAS that takes advantage of the cloud, while still providing local access and performance in the datacenter.
Learn about this new generation of NAS that solves the challenges of file data storage, protection and access across the enterprise, costs less to own and manage, and ends the cycle of NAS hardware refreshes forever.
To win in today’s complex, noisy selling environment, you need marketing and sales to rally around the same goal: engaging customers. While it seems simple, more often than not these teams aren’t playing by the same rules. Join us as we dive into how you can referee the following common marketing and sales scuffles:
- Countless dead-end calls: your sales reps complain that all the leads sent over by marketing are a waste of their time
- Operating in the dark: marketing doesn’t know what happens to their leads, and sales doesn’t know where to start their conversations — how can either expect to deliver a personalized customer experience?
- Reps gone rogue: your marketing team is concerned about the content of messages that sales is sending to prospects
Tune in on April 21st, as Bob Kelly, Founder & Chairman - Sales Management Association, and Katie Doyle, Product Marketing Director - Pardot, walk through how to address these scenarios and eliminate common roadblocks on the path to becoming a sales and marketing super team.
It is no secret that we live in a 24/7 world that demands information be always available, always accurate and always secure. In order to meet these demands a comprehensive risk management program must be in place. At the forefront of these efforts are the preventive measures that try to reduce the probability of a disruptive incident occurring. But as has been all too often the case, these protective actions may not be enough. Whether it be the force of nature, the actions of terrorists, the fragility of infrastructures or so many other disruptive events will and do happen.
Left with the reality that we must prepare for interruptions to occur, the job of the Business Continuity Professional is to minimize the resulting impacts. Creating environments that will provide connectivity, processing and data integrating, more and more organizations are looking toward the clouds. Whether it be to ensure that data can be shared or looking for full automated recovery cloud computing has a possible answer. This presentation will discuss what the cloud is, how it can make organizations more resilient and some of the issues pertaining to its usage.
Changing IT needs and complex infrastructures require flexible and dynamic solutions to help you transition your environment. The release of Symantec™ Backup Exec 15 is the perfect time for you to review your backup and recovery infrastructure to meet these changing demands. Whether you are an existing Backup Exec customer or not, now is the time to upgrade to a reliable choice; the leading-edge offering for virtual, physical and cloud platforms.
Join us to understand how Backup Exec 15 provides the flexibility to protect confidently whatever your platform, technology or application need. Delivering the power to protect your information faster, restore what you need when you need it and the ease the time and burden of “doing backup.
Whether you are evaluating your move to the public cloud or have started the journey and are already hosting DevTest or production workloads, security and compliance should be high on your list of priorities.
Applications hosted in the public cloud are your responsibility, and not AWS. The biggest challenge you have is that web applications are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure that you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise.
Join James Brown, Director of Cloud Computing & Security Architecture, Alert Logic for this live webinar which will cover:
• The shared security model: what security you are responsible for to protect your content, applications, systems and networks v AWS
• Overview of the OWASP Top 10 most critical web application security risks (such as SQL injections)
• Best practices for how to protect your environment from the latest threats
This webinar is essential for anyone who wants to understand how to build a plan for security and compliance in the cloud.
