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.
Storage architectures have evolved to meet ever-changing business demands. Today’s enterprises need the flexibility to place workloads where they make the most sense and achieve objectives for resiliency and growth without introducing unnecessary complexity and cost.
If you have storage initiatives focused on virtualization, backup, archiving, or cloud, attend this session to learn new strategies for building a more agile, multi-site storage infrastructure at lower cost.
As organizations run more mission-critical applications within virtual environments, it's often a challenge to continue to meet performance and availability SLAs. Storage is usually the likely culprit. IT managers must have a keen understanding of the latest advancements in storage technology so they can recommend the best approach moving forward.

SD-WAN can dramatically reduce cost and increases the ability to rapidly bring new services online, connecting users to all types of applications, and speeding up time to market. But the idea of re-architecting the WAN can be daunting and the decision to adopt an SD-WAN solution can be a difficult one.
Join renowned network expert Ethan Banks, Co-Founder of Packet Pushers, and Rolf Muralt, VP Products Management SD-WAN at Silver Peak, in a webinar that discusses the SD-WAN market, lessons learned, and what features to be on the lookout for as you make your decision. They will discuss issues around technology selection and deployment, including:
· How a zero-touch, hybrid or SD-WAN can leverage multiple connectivity forms
· Ways to prioritize and route traffic across different connections
· Quality of Service (QoS), and how to maintain 100% uptime
· Best practices for transitioning with minimal impact on budget and resources
· Real customer examples that demonstrate different deployment stage and benefits
Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.
Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
•Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
•Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
•Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
•Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts
Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.
A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.
