  • The 5 Disaster Recovery Questions You’re Not Asking The 5 Disaster Recovery Questions You’re Not Asking Curtis Preston, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Mar 21 2017 62 mins
    Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is changing the way data center administrators think about disaster recovery. A DR site and equipment no longer need to be bought in advance. DRaaS instead enables DR to be on-demand. The concept is so appealing that vendors are racing into the market claiming to offer DRaaS capabilities. But DRaaS is more than a simple check mark for a DR requirement. Organizations need to realize that how well the service performs is critical to successfully surviving a disaster.

  • Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Mar 23 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    If your organization is embarking on a refresh of your primary storage system this year, this is the one webinar that you will want to attend. IT evaluators that haven't looked at storage in a few years, will be impressed the use of flash to improve performance, while many claim to integrate file (NFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI, Fibre) protocols. These features though are now table stakes for the modern storage solution.

    While all of these features are important (and not created equal), IT professionals should demand capabilities that solve today's organizational challenges like eliminating shadow IT, improving multi-site productivity and long term data retention as well as meeting increasingly strict compliance standards. IT professionals should look for not only high performance and universal protocol support but also enterprise file sync and share, inter-data center sync and secure archive with compliance.

    Enterprises are using a variety of cloud and SaaS services to remain competitive, but can lose out when their network architecture either becomes a deployment bottleneck or impedes application performance. Network interconnection has often taken a back seat to other issues in application design and deployment, but enterprises should not continue to ignore this critical component of infrastructure.

  • Capacity - Ransomware - Protection - Three Windows File Server Upgrades to Avoid Capacity - Ransomware - Protection - Three Windows File Server Upgrades to Avoid Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Mar 28 2017 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    For most enterprises, optimizing your Windows fileserver means buying a new, bigger server with more capacity and better network connections. Or it means buying a dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Then they feel they need to add new ransomware and data protection software. All of these "solutions" are expensive, involve a costly data migration and don't really increase IT efficiency. In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Caringo will teach you how data management can eliminate the need for additional Windows file servers, capacity and protection.

  • Windows 10 Security - BitLocker Windows 10 Security - BitLocker Frank Shen Mar 28 2017 5:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    As the need grows for organizations to empower users to work anywhere, anytime and from any device, IT departments are looking for ways to protect content and data on lost or stolen devices. Microsoft’s BitLocker program can encrypt your drive as well as help protect against unauthorized changes to your system. It is designed to prevent a user’s data from being viewed, extracted or retrieved in case a drive is lost or stolen, which is increasingly important now that users are becoming more mobile.

    In our next webinar, we will discuss some of these sobering statistics, as well as the approach Microsoft is taking to information protection and encryption. Discover deployment and planning considerations and understand the value BitLocker can bring to your organization.

  • Micro-Rules and Microservices: Business Rules in Modern Architectures Micro-Rules and Microservices: Business Rules in Modern Architectures Duncan Doyle, Technical Marketing Manager, Red Hat Mar 28 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Being able to create and easily re-define business rules is a competitive advantage in today's quickly-changing environment. Business rules are at the heart of every organization’s operations. They define the laws and regulations to which the organization is bound, they drive business process decisions, and they determine pricing of products and services.

    Microservices modularize monoliths into small services with open and standard interfaces that can be individually implemented, deployed and scaled. Containers provide the environment where microservices operate (OS, runtime, libraries, configuration).

    Join this webinar to see how Red Hat® JBoss® BRMS and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform:

    - Help you quickly extract documented or implicit business rules and explicitly define them with a standard and centrally managed rules language.
    - Let you package those explicitly defined rules into containers and deploy them as microservices.
