Join this webinar to be certain of making the right decisions on moving resources to the cloud. You’ll see how to evaluate which workloads are candidates for cloud migration PLUS measure how efficiently you’re utilizing your own resources.
The CloudPhysics Cost Calculator for Private Cloud lets you apply basic costing models to determine your actual costs per virtual machine (VM) in terms of power, compute resources, memory, storage, licensing, and more to generate a cost baseline.
Now you can apply CloudPhysics rightsizing intelligence to your VMs. See your “as is” costs beside your rightsized costs at peak, 99th percentile, and 95th percentile. Capture savings by reducing workloads to match actual demands and reduce overprovisioning.
When mapping your VMs to their public cloud instances, apply the same peak, 99th percentile, and 95th percentile data to reveal cost difference for private versus public cloud.
Attend this webinar to be sure you’ve optimized decision-making before you move.
Cybersecurity has jumped to the top of companies’ risk agenda after a number of high profile data breaches, and other hacks. In an increasingly digitized world, where data resides in the cloud, on mobiles and Internet of Things enabling multitude of connected devices, the threat vectors are multiplying, threatening the firms’ operations and future financial stability.
Organizations with the ability to view cybersecurity breaches as a risk, with associated probabilities and impacts, can strike the right balance between resilience and protection. By bringing together leadership and capabilities across fraud, IT, cybersecurity and operational risk, organizations can connect the dots and manage their GRC program more effectively. Organizations need to employ a proactive approach to review their existing risk management processes, roles and responsibilities with respect to cybersecurity to re-align them into an overall ERM strategy with boardroom backing.
Attend this panel webinar, as we discuss these issues and address ways to develop an evolving GRC program to cope with the growing threat landscape.
Join us for the third and final webcast in our series on micro-segmentation, how it protects networks, and how it works with perimeter firewalls. We’ll also discuss its advantages beyond protection in automating security workflows and more.
In this webcast series, we’ve explored the security benefits of micro-segmentation with NSX, notably how it protects data centers inside the perimeter firewall. But did you know that with micro-segmentation, IT can also automate security workflows such as provisioning, moves/adds/changes, threat response, and security policy management? Join us as we discuss:
• How to improve accuracy and gain better overall security in the data center
• Security policy approaches with network virtualization
• How to automate security workflows to gain greater agility
Build a fundamentally more agile, efficient and secure application environment with VMware NSX network virtualization on powerful industry standard infrastructure featuring Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Ethernet 10GB/40GB Converged Network Adapters.
Data communication speeds are constantly increasing to keep up with the demand in bandwidth. Ethernet speeds of 100 Gb/s are being deployed and 400 Gb/s or more are being considered. As the speeds increase, the reach of multimode fiber gets shorter. One way to mitigate the shrinking distance is to the use the highest bandwidth fiber. What if we tell you that the transceivers can help mitigate as well?
Topics to be discussed include:
- Characteristics of cable, connectivity, and transceivers and how they can maximize network reach and flexibility
- Current trends in Ethernet and Fibre Channel and what is coming in the near future.

Over a decade ago, API-accessible key/value-based storage was introduced as a service by Amazon and as software by Caringo. Amazon’s service-based approach matured quickly, while the general storage market slowly adopted the API approach. The on-premise market demanded a traditional file interface, leading to various “gateway” products. However, for the majority of use cases, the logical file gateway architecture is flawed. Is it time for file to evolve with object? This webinar examines the past decade in file interface gateways and the needs of the market versus what is available.
The use of broadband Internet connections in SD-WAN environment has many benefits, however for any enterprise, performance and reliability cannot be compromised. An SD-WAN solution must include all the functionality needed to meet these essential requirements that deliver outstanding performance and Quality of Service by:
•Actually improving the quality of the bandwidth you already have, instead of routing around it
•Enabling centralized control and administration of network-wide policies
•Providing detailed visibility into real-time and historical application and network trends
•Allowing for the modular deployment of WAN optimization to insure performance when you need it, where you need it
This all adds up to an enterprise-grade, performance-centric offering that allows your SD-WAN to rapidly connect users to the applications they need. Deployment times are reduced significantly and enterprises enjoy enhanced performance, visibility and control over the entire network.

There has been a great deal of interest in Graphene. Some would call it hype. But with its flexibility and heat conduction properties, this atom-thin layer of carbon, which has been touted as the strongest material ever measured, has enormous product and market potential for the ICT industry.
Because graphene is conductive at nano-scale layers, it can be used for lightweight, flexible yet durable display screens, electric circuits and solar cells. It is also currently being made into inks and 3D printable materials. Imagine what this can mean for the design of communications devices, or circuitry, or batteries. Imagine the impact on wearables, the design and development of IoT sensors, or large scale retail store windows. Graphene holds a great deal of promise.
Despite the potential graphene promises, it has taken longer than expected to transform research and development into commercialized product.
This webcast will explore both the tremendous potential harbored in those structured carbon atoms and the business reality. The focus will be on the use of the material for the ICT industry. We will also look at other use cases that may be the first steps on graphene’s path to commercial application.
