Forrester and IT Execs Discuss Big Workloads

Manage webcast
Richard Fichera, VP & Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. with IT Execs from Paycor & Monterey Peninsula College
Are you considering an x86 server for a new business-critical application, or are you thinking of migrating an existing Unix RISC application to x86? x86 systems and CPU technology have evolved rapidly over the last several years and this platform is now capable of running workloads previously associated with larger proprietary UNIX systems. In addition, both Windows and Linux, the principal operating environments for these servers, have matured to the point where the combination of x86 server and these OS' can handle workloads associated with the largest UNIX systems from as little as three years ago.

Tune into this live webcast with our guest Forrester analyst Richard Fichera as he speaks to the underlying trends driving modern infrastructure, when to consider moving from Unix to Windows or Linux changing principal operating environments, what to look for in an x86 platform and porting guidance. Rich will be joined by two IT executives who will share their business challenges, their decision-making process, and the business benefits they have achieved with their chosen database server solution, followed by a live Q & A.

  • The critical applications and services your end-users rely on every day can be deployed on-premise, hosted in the cloud, or even SaaS applications provided by a 3rd party that never cross your infrastructure. Your users don’t care where the app is running; they just need it to be available…and fast. And when there is a problem, they expect IT to resolve it!

    Join us on this webinar and see how to get visibility to all your applications so you can quickly and proactively identify where the problem is and resolve it quickly. Then, it really won’t matter where the applications are deployed!

    And the best news is that you can combine this application visibility with analysis from your OptiView XG. During the webinar you will learn:

    •The challenges of today’s Borderless Enterprise (aka – the network is outside of your 4 walls!)
    •How to monitor all your applications
    •How to use this visibility to extend your OptiView XG

    BONUS: There is a Special Promotion for OptiView XG owners!
