    In het datacenter zoekt u efficiëntie en effectiviteit. Die zijn vaak ver te zoeken door slecht op elkaar afgestemde componenten. Een converged data center infrastructure-platform biedt hiervoor al enkele jaren dé geïntegreerde IT-infrastructuur oplossing.

    U heeft echter de term hyper-converged vast wel eens horen langskomen:

    •Maar wat houdt een Hyper-converged oplossing eigenlijk in?
    •Hoe verhouden Hyper-converged en converged zich tot elkaar en waar verschillen ze?
    •Wat kunnen beide oplossingen u opleveren?
    •En in welke situatie is welke oplossing het meest geschikt voor u?

    Enkele uitdagingen die aan bod komen in deze webinar zijn o.a.:
    •Hoe kan ik mijn IT-infrastructuur budget voorspellen voor de komende jaren?
    •Hoe ik snel innoveren en inspelen op vragen vanuit de business zoals het uitrollen en ondersteunen van applicaties?
    •Hoe koppel en beheer ik de losse onderdelen binnen mijn IT-infrastructuur?

  • Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) provides a new ecosystem and value chain in mobile networks. The Open-RAN ecosystem enables Mobile Operators to open their Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to authorized third-party applications and services. By transforming proximity, context, agility, rapid response time and speed into value for mobile users, mobile operators, network equipment vendors, and third-party providers can improve the customer experience and monetize mobile broadband. The MEC trend is gaining momentum with the establishment of an ETSI MEC Standardization group led by Intel, Nokia, Huawei and other major players.

    In the Webinar, we will present the MEC architecture within the mobile network and demonstrate a number of use cases
    -Leveraging the Open-RAN ecosystem to bring 3rd party applications like Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to the Radio Edge;
    -Demonstrating the value of real-time network awareness for optimized content delivery;
    -And presenting advanced RAN-based technologies that further accelerate content delivery
  • Hyper-converged storage is turning out to be the buzz phrase of the storage industry in 2015, one with as many confusing and contradictory definitions as there are vendors. In theory, the combining of server and storage tiers into a single entity should deliver better application performance and lower infrastructure costs. In practice, your mileage will vary.

    Join us for this webinar where industry expert Jon Toigo – chairman and co-founder of the Data Management Institute – will help to identify key criteria for making the right infrastructure decision for your business. Mr. Toigo will offer his key criteria in selecting a hyper-converged infrastructure model and he will survey the offerings of leading vendors to identify the “gotchas,” trade-offs and lock-ins of each option so you find the best fit for your company.

  • With more than 100 applications in production, a leading bank needed to reduce the time required to deploy and update its apps. By implementing an automation solution from HP, the bank reduced the application time-to-deploy by nearly 8X. Now the bank follows a seamless and standardized approach for deployment.
  • As organizations recognize that compliance is a challenge that is no longer optional, they are also having to closely monitor relevant laws & regulation changes.
    Compliance requirements differ depending on where you operate and so multi-nationals have to consider US, EU and APJ legislation which is complex and often misaligned.
    With the various cloud computing offerings it is important to address security and privacy as part of good governance, risk management and due diligence. Failure to adequately handle these requirements can place the organization at significant risk for not meeting compliance obligations and exposing sensitive data to possible data breaches. This session provides an introduction to data privacy definitions and issues as well as identifying key legislation across APJ.

  • Would you ever consider leaving your house for the day without locking your door? Of course not!!
    It is as important to protect and control front-door access of your databases as it is to lock the front door of your house. That is why we use a suite of database discovery and activity monitoring tools to control the front door access of our databases. Yet hackers and miscreant insiders know that the back door of databases are all too often left wide open—and it is the path of least resistance to steal valuable data.

    Vormetric has partnered with Intel Security to integrate with McAfee Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) to extend data-security coverage. Vormetric adds another layer of security to McAfee DAM by preventing unauthorized users and processes from accessing or viewing the database files through transparent encryption.

    In this presentation, Vormetric will demonstrate:
    • How to complete database security, to assure that back door entry is as locked down as the front door
    • How to protect the database, and its associated files such as configuration, logs and reports, from not only physical theft, but also from insider threats and hackers
  • When organizations are looking at a phone system, they have two paths they can take — upgrading their entire on-premise equipment in each office or evaluate a cloud-based system.
