Machine learning and machine intelligence have moved into the corporate datacenter. Along with seeing live demos of machine learning in action, attendees will learn how advanced algorithms can rapidly analyze large data sets to find relevant patterns, and employ inferential learning to make real-time adjustments to datacenter processes.
IT environments are becoming larger and more complex through organic growth as well as acquisition. Accompanying initiatives—like datacenter migrations, for example—are expensive. Done well, these moves cost $1,200 to $6,000 per server. But when things go wrong? A poorly optimized load balancer could mean downtime for critical application servers – a price that could skyrocket to more than $25,000 per server.
What if IT teams could be guided through the process? What if they had a way to map the plan and troubleshoot issues before they became outages?
In this webinar, we'll share a story from an ExtraHop customer who underwent a large datacenter migration after it acquired a new business. Not only did their IT team undergo a successful migration, they also decreased troubleshooting time and cost to the company by 85 percent – freeing them to move beyond reactive firefighting to proactive solution building for the business.

In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?
When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.
In this webcast we will show you more about the following:
•Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
•NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
•NVMe (the protocol)
Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?
We’re here to help.
It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.
Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.

Hybrid clouds are important for enterprises having on-premise deployments as well as legacy applications. Likewise, multi-cloud scenarios appeal to organizations that want the flexibility to move between different clouds and not get locked-in into either one public or private clouds architecture. While over 70% of enterprises have expressed a need to deploy hybrid and/or multi-cloud architectures, as they modernize their application architectures the rollouts are complex and time consuming causing budget overruns and delays. The complexity is largely associated with the lack of common tooling, mismatched cloud architectures and expertise. These can be significantly overcome by providing access to on-demand, self-service IT environments (on-premise as well as public cloud, or a combination thereof), that would allow for more predictable application performance and security, thereby allowing for faster cloud migration and rollout, with reduced cost and risk.
Join this webinar with 451 research and Quali to learn:
•Current trends in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments and enterprise requirements
•How incorporating sandboxes and self-service environments in the workflow can smoothen cloud migration, hybrid deployments and the flexibility of multi-cloud deployment. Demo included.
