Engage with a community of your peers and industry experts by asking questions, rating presentations and participating in polls during webinars, all while you gain insight that will help you transform your infrastructure into a next generation data center.
Virtualization can effectively increase hardware efficiency and capacity, and it also functions as a base layer for new technologies like software-defined storage, networks and data centers. As such virtualization is becoming one of the most flexible, usable and essential assets in the enterprise’s arsenal, but keeping track of every virtualized function while deciding what to virtualize and when can be a massive challenge. So join virtualization experts as they discuss the ins and outs of Virtualization, CDI, NFV, Software-Defined and more and answer all your questions about the now ubiquitous technology layer.
From Google’s multi-colored pipes to Facebook’s arctic wind tunnel, data centers came into the foreground of the IT industry in 2014, but concerns came with them. Energy, efficiency and sustainability are on everybody’s lips and the power hungry, costly and mysterious data center is an easy target. So what is an efficient data center? From design, security, regulations, cloud and software defined, to hardware, wiring, cooling and power, attend the Efficient Data Center Summit to hear industry experts discuss everything about the future of data center efficiency in 2015.
Many consider the software-defined data center (SDDC) as the final evolution of virtualization. By having a virtual data center, you create ultimate reliability by abstracting applications from the data center infrastructure — easily transitioning application workloads from one data center to another from a single dashboard. But is this a reality today? How is it being used? And how do you transition from physical to all virtual without disrupting service? Join this summit as experts from around the world discuss the final step of virtualization, where the technology is today, where it could be tomorrow and how you can begin to develop your own software-defined data center.
Efficiency. Sustainability. Security. These are the three key facets when it comes to designing a data center but these shift with your priorities, the priorities of your business and the needs of your users. So how should you design yours? At the same time radical data center designs are a massive trend, but are they truly innovative, or glorified PR moves? Attend this summit to discover the answer to these questions and learn about how you should be designing the data center for efficiency, sustainability, and security.
The data center is increasingly at the center of your organization. As we move further towards the cloud and add virtual layers to our infrastructure the data center has had to deal with further and further pressures. The technology and business is constantly evolving and improving; converging on continual solutions to address the growing need for efficient, reliable and sustainable processes. Join data center experts from around the world and discover how you and your data center can rise to the challenges of tomorrow.
Attackers can be amazingly resourceful and persistent, changing tactics often to bypass IT security countermeasures. They have a clear advantage: they choose when to attack, how to attack, and are capable of surprising any prevention technology deployed. As a result, constant monitoring is required to detect and remediate malware.
Tune in for this webinar series from AlienVault to learn about some of the latest threats, and how to detect them anywhere in your network.
DCIM has been a talking point of the data center industry for a long time. It seems like every year is heralded as "the" year of DCIM, but it struggles to compete with the software-defined and big data buzz word revolutions. But DCIM is as relevant today as ever and getting it right can be one of the biggest challenges, and greatest rewards for your data center. So get all the information you need with at the DCIM Summit.
We may feel that everything is moving to the cloud, but even clouds need to exist somewhere. The data center is more important than ever in a world where we create 2.5 billion GB of data every single day. But with every data center growing in size and delivering more and more capacity, how do you keep it cool, efficient and effective for your purposes?
Attend this full day of webinars with industry thought leaders from around the world as they keep you up to date with the latest trends. From flash, to SSD, to DCIM and radical design, join today to stay ahead of the most important data center innovations, essential adoptions and connect with your fellow data center professionals.
While monitoring systems are crucial for data center management, as many as 42% of IT professionals seldom or never use key performance indicators for energy efficiency, according to the latest study by UBM Tech. Join this summit to learn of the factors responsible for limiting data centers’ capabilities and find out how a comprehensive monitoring system can prevent data centers from underperforming, with tools and strategies to maximize efficiency and reduce energy use.
