Who Needs a Data Center? Mixed Strategy for Cloud Migration in Higher Education

A. Michael Berman, Vice President for Technology & Communication, California State University Channel Islands
The availability of so many options and platforms for cloud migration seems daunting when you first start out. We started with the assumption that, at least for a smaller university, the economics of the cloud will lead to the end of life of our data center well before the end of this decade, but the benefits, costs, and opportunities for cloud migration are quite uneven and shifting rapidly. We'll share our journey and the criteria we use to decide what to move to the cloud (and where), and what to keep on premises - for now.

  • High Performance Wireless for BYOD: The Task in Hand Recorded: Jan 17 2013 47 mins
    Perry Correll, Senior Technologist, Xirrus
    BYOD is no longer a consideration, it’s a reality. Every day over 2 million new wireless devices are being activated and these devices will show up on you network. And while most wireless vendors are talking about the potential security risks, which are considerable, almost no one is discussing the impact the sheer numbers of devices will have on your networks performance.

    A recent Gartner study did and stated that ‘By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of a lack of proper planning’. Many administrators still designing for coverage, when capacity limits are the true Achilles heel of wireless deployments. This session will discuss the varied client types and their capabilities, best practices to address growing device densities and how both impact overall network performance. IT administrator looking at a BYOD deployment or even just a wireless upgrade will gain valuable insight from this presentation.

  • Strategies for Ensuring Desktop Virtualization SLAs Recorded: Nov 16 2012 30 mins
    Jeff Parillo, Managing Director, North American Sales & Ryan, Ahlers, Director, Sales Engineering , Aternity, Inc.
    Desktop Virtualization is the top cloud-based technology impacting End User Computing. And, user-centric, Service Level Agreement (SLA) Management is the primary factor against which cloud-based virtual desktop solutions and providers are and will be evaluated. If you are currently evaluating, planning, or managing application performance in a Virtualized Desktop Environment, don't let your VDI project get derailed by poor end user experience.

    In VDI environments, traditional system metrics, such as CPU, memory, and network utilization, are marginal indicators of actual performance. As a result, Desktop Virtualization demands a user-centric vs. device-centric approach to service management. End User Experience (EUE) management becomes an essential barometer to ensure that end-user facing systems are responsive and high-performing. During this webinar, the following topics for ensuring Desktop Virtualization SLAs through a user-centric approach to service management will be covered:

    - How to gain comprehensive visibility into exactly how virtualized desktop and remote workstation users are experiencing critical application performance
    - How to proactively detect when performance degradations occur
    - Methods for correlating PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) latency with the actual business
    transaction response times and the VM image’s health
    - How to gain an in-depth understanding of application performance within the VMware View™ environment, exactly as experienced by the users themselves
    - Advanced analytics around key PCoIP metrics, such as Image Quality, Round Trip Latency, Packet Lost Percentage, Available Network Bandwidth, and many other performance impacting factors
  • Five Pillars of VDI Success Recorded: Nov 15 2012 35 mins

  • The Flipped iPad Classroom Recorded: Aug 30 2012 48 mins
    Beth Holland, Senior Associate at EdTechTeacher and Greg Kulowiec, Instructor & Presenter, at EdTechTeacher
    With mobile devices becoming more prevalent in the classroom, it is no wonder that many educators are looking to these devices to improve the learning environment. Add a flipped classroom strategy, inverting the traditional teaching methods by delivering instruction online outside the classroom and moving "homework" into the classroom, and there could be huge potential for learning and growth. But firstly, we have to solve how iPads, or other mobile devices can transform the classroom and what if a flipped strategy was also applied. In this webinar, we will discuss these two key issues in three essential questions: why integrate iPads, why the flipped model and how these two things go together to create a dynamic learning environment.
