Virtualization

Channel profile:

The software-defined data center

Virtualization is no longer a passing trend. Organization deploying it in their servers, desktops, storage and networks are experiencing increased performance and decreased costs, when implemented and managed properly. Join this channel to hear leading experts discuss this maturing technology and how you can create your own software-defined data center.

SDN and Openness Software-defined networking offers the potential for an open network platform, hosting diverse applications, running over multiple technologies and vendors’ equipment. Openness is arguably the key to widespread SDN adoption, and the elusive goal of multi-vendor interoperability.

This session will address the implications of Openness on SDN, including the evolving role of standards and OpenSource Software, including an examination of why the Open Networking Foundation, Network Functions Virtualization, and OpenDaylight are indicative of the future of networking.

  • Software-defined networking offers the potential for an open network platform, hosting diverse applications, running over multiple technologies and vendors’ equipment. Openness is arguably the key to widespread SDN adoption, and the elusive goal of multi-vendor interoperability.

  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is now a mature technology that is being adopted by organizations with increasing popularity. However, the user community who needs high-end graphics capabilities in their work (such as 3D modelling and simulations) were somewhat skeptical about the capabilities and performance of VDI with applications using 3D graphics, compared to the performance they can expect from a physical PC or workstation with a dedicated GPU. Recent advances in VDI help make this performance gap narrower by providing the capabilities for either a pool of virtual desktops (shared GPU) or, to a specific virtual desktop (GPU pass through), depending on the user requirements.

    Join Teradici for a deep dive on Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) deployment options for VMware Horizon View and walk away with the GPU knowledge to increase productivity and accelerate your application performance in your virtual environment. In this webinar, we will discuss GPU technology related to Virtual Shared Graphics Acceleration (vSGA),Virtual Dedicated Graphics Acceleration (vDGA) and Teradici PCoIP Hardware Accelerator deployment options available today. We will also explore how using PCoIP Hardware Accelerator in combination with a GPU allows you to expand and enhance your VDI deployment to provide a rich and interactive graphical experience across a broad set of use cases and ensure application performance.

    Key Takeaways
    • Understand the graphics acceleration options for VMware Horizon View
    • Learn how PCoIP Hardware Accelerator complements GPU implementations to improve 3D application performance
  • Big Data brings many different faces and challenges. One of those challenges is data management. How will you be able to protect and secure the increase of data into the datacentre of your organisation while still keeping the same SLA’s ? What strategic decisions can IT administrators take to stay within those SLA’s when their data size is increasing exponentially ? This webinar from CommVault will address these issues and offer some practical solutions for managing the ongoing problem of data growth.
  • Cloud services brought democratization of big data – everybody can build as big a solution as he needs. Many Amazon Web Services customers use big data solutions today.

    Join Steffen Krause as he talks about the architecture of Big Data solutions in the cloud and about some some real world customer examples. He will also explain how Big Data solutions in the cloud integrate with other systems. It's not always Hadoop., and show use cases for both Hadoop and for Data Warehouse based solutions
  • Join this panel of SAP experts as they go over the key discussions of the day's presentations and look at some of the best points.

    Attend live to ask your questions to the panel and connect with IT and SAP professionals alike.
  • Professional architects' preferred approach to SAP landscapes focuses on simplicity and speed - in design, deployment, management, and support.

    Join Michael Tovish for a candid conversation on the benefits of a converged infeastructure and how best to deliver to core SAP deployments and balance risk and innovation.

    Discover the latest Data Center trends, learn best practices and have your questions answered in this live presentation.
  • Transforming your SAP applications through the adoption of virtualization, in-memory/HANA, and cloud paves the way for an agile IT infrastructure while reducing infrastructure costs, improving operational efficiency, maximising performance, and reducing risk to your business.

    Join Joakim Zetterblad as he illustrates how to deploy cloud enabled, SAP environments in your organizations and shares experiences of how it has been done before
  • If 2013 showed is anything it was that virtualization is now at the bedrock of your infrastructure. However full virtualization can be difficult to achieve and even more difficult to optimize and maintain effectively and efficiently.

    Join Rory Choudhuri as he highlights best practices and suggestions for an optimized virtual environment. Discover how you can run HANA in a virtual appliance, both in production and test & development environments, and how you can truly virtualize your SAP infrastructure
  • How well do you know HANA? The quintessential data management system is still in its infancy but is already sweeping through the technology marketplace with continual additions for the enterprise cloud and other key aspects of you infrastructure. However, defining such a complex system can be difficult.

    Make sure you're sure you know who HANA is and discover everything you need to know for the Transforming the SAP Landscape event. Perfect whether you interact with HANA every day, or you haven't met yet.
