Embracing Mobile Device Management to Empower Your Workforce
IT managers worldwide are significantly altering their mobile computing strategies. This shift is driving a profound impact on smartphone and tablet adoption in addition to management and security requirements. Necessitating this change is a significant generational shift of information workers — who are an increasingly empowered group — dictating the technology used to solve business issues. IT managers must respond to overwhelming requests to support smartphones and tablets because of the productivity improvements and cost efficiencies they can introduce and they’re shifting away from a one-size-fits-all, corporate-liable model to one that: 1) includes support for a diversity of platforms, and 2) is much more open to individually-liable devices connecting to corporate resources.

In less than a decade, virtualization and cloud technologies have transformed enterprise computing from top (applications) to bottom (storage).
During this time, computing has evolved from a tiered and operationally isolated architecture of front-end, application, database and storage servers — each tier having its own teams, processes, tools, and manual functions — to a tightly integrated, fully automated “stack” that’s orchestrated with a common set of people and tools.
Because of this unification and automation of the computing stack, enterprises can now instantly deploy workloads across private and public clouds with ease. While this evolution has been occurring on the computing side of IT, networks have remained largely unchanged. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies are about to change that.
Join Cradlepoint and analyst Dr. Jim Metzler in a discussion about SDN and NFV and how they are creating the new networking stack.
Poor application performance and crashes cost millions of dollars to businesses globally. Yet, recent surveys show that only 26% of application teams will proactively examine user experience metrics in production. 72% of app teams first learn of UX issues through user complaints.
Today’s impatient and intolerant user is quick to abandon slow performing, crashing and error prone apps. So it is up to application teams to quickly isolate issues, understand what went wrong and know how to fix it fast.
Join us for this webinar and learn how HPE AppPulse Trace cuts through the complexity of isolating transaction performance issues. During this live webcast, user experience experts will demonstrate how to correlate performance issues from the user action to service code execution and diagnose issues down to the line of code and log messages.
During this Webinar, you will learn how to:
Quickly drill down to server-side transactions for rapid investigation of performance bottlenecks
Trace transactions from the browser or mobile app all the way to the backend
Trace all aspects of transaction execution including end-to-end flow, code timing, contextual logs, exceptions and database queries
As traditional enterprises look to experiment with emerging Docker use cases, the need to connect containers to persistent data or even just to share data between Docker containers becomes more obvious. However, this expansion has proven to be a challenge for infrastructure that relies on monolithic storage arrays. As a result, enterprises are looking to software-defined storage as a more attractive choice because of its flexibility, programmability and ability to provide well-managed, persistent storage. In this talk, you’ll get:
• What Docker is and is not, as well as container-specific storage challenges
• Why you need container-specific storage policies, SLAs, and classes of service (CoS)
• How to leverage software-defined storage solutions for Docker and containers
• When to use hyperconverged or hyperscale architectures for your Docker initiatives
Computing models in today’s dynamic data centers and clouds are changing dramatically. Application-centric enterprises are finding that they need to develop nimble operational models for infrastructure, networking, and application services. Application delivery controllers (ADCs) are an important part of the networking and application services considerations for software-defined data centers.
New software-defined load balancers are significantly improving the way that application services are delivered and scaled, while freeing IT from repetitive tasks through intelligent automation. Application developers and lines of business are benefiting from better APIs that align with their goals for continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) and cloud-native applications.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
– How to eliminate the overprovisioning and overspending that is typical with traditional hardware-based load balancing solutions?
– How to scale not just load balancers but also applications, elastically and predictively based on real-time traffic patterns?
– How to take advantage of x86 servers, VMs, or containers to deliver application services close to individual applications?
– What are the best ways to support multi-cloud deployments and cloud-native applications?
– Ways to troubleshoot applications in minutes with the ability to record and replay traffic events, security and client data.
– How to accelerate application services for SDN environments such as Cisco ACI and private clouds such as OpenStack or for container-based microservices applications?
– The move to agile infrastructure and operations is already happening and it is now reaching critical networking components in the stack such as ADCs.
Join us for our live webinar on May 11th at 1 p.m.ET and 10 a.m. PT when Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems will discuss how the acquisition and operating costs of flash make it feasible to build a private cloud that is responsive to the needs of the business and cost effective.
