  • Improving Dashboard Performance, Achieving Fine-Grained Analytics with Vertica
    Improving Dashboard Performance, Achieving Fine-Grained Analytics with Vertica
    Yuanzhe Bei and Jie Guo, Vertica Recorded: Mar 19 2019 53 mins
    There are two popular ways that organizations mine growing volumes of data for insight: short-term dashboard reporting and long-term analytics. Every organization would like their dashboards on recent data to be faster in addition to keeping data longer so that data analytics can derive more insightful, granular results.

    Join us for this Webcast to understand how Vertica can help you achieve both of these goals with these powerful features – Hierarchical Partitioning, Flattened Tables, and Live Aggregate Projections. Discover how Hierarchical Partitioning combines old data partitions into larger files, allowing you to retain more data without bloating the catalog or forcing partitions to be less fine-grained. The former benefits data analytics, while the latter helps with dashboard reporting, as more fine-grained partitions help with pruning data more aggressively, resulting in faster query performance and less resource usage.

    You’ll also learn how Flattened Tables provides convenient and faster data denormalization for your dashboard queries and optimizes resources more efficiently by avoiding joins. The unique column-wise refresh mechanism can defer denormalization operation after your ETL process without introducing much overhead. Finally, learn how Live Aggregate Projections materializes partially aggregated results to speed up those aggregation-type analytical queries.

    Paul Nicholson, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, and Yasir Liaqatullah, VP of Product Management at A10 Networks Recorded: Mar 19 2019 56 mins
    Most mobile operators are moving ahead with their 5G plans, some tentatively and others aggressively. Those who don’t act, face the very real prospect of being left behind in the greatest technology transformation in decades.

    To Modernize your 4G/LTE networks for 5G, we will outline four strategic investments that mobile operators should consider today while delving into the myths and realities around them. These four areas are:
    •Upgrading network management
    •Consolidating network functions

    HPE Recovery Manager Central : Delivering a DataOps experience for Hybrid Cloud
    bharath-ram.r@hpe.com Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data is the lifeblood of business. A company’s data is usually copied at least once, and often multiple times, to meet the needs of various use cases such as clones for test/dev or analytics, backup copies for data protection, archival copies for compliance, instant recovery copies, or, any particular set of data is likely to have spawned one or more copies. Copies are so important that they now consume 60% of total storage capacity for the average enterprise – even more than production data. While these copies are nearly always made for a good reason, in many organizations they have spiralled out of control, creating a copy data sprawl that is tough for IT to get its arms around, let alone manage.
    So how do you protect this important asset, grant copies to all who need it, and avoid paying for extra storage capacity – on-premises and in the cloud? HPE Storage’s Recovery Manager Central (RMC) for 3PAR and Nimble Storage platforms delivers a single-pane-of-glass for Copy Data Management and Data Protection for a variety of workloads such as VMware, Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SAP HANA and more. In this talk, we will cover how RMC delivers a DataOps experience for 3PAR and Nimble platforms with live demos.

    Complexity, Cost and Clutter, Oh My! Use Backup Appliances and Simplify
    John Fluharty and Phil Wandrei - Commvault Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 32 mins
    Appliances are part of our everyday life, especially in the home. They provide convenience and save us time and money. However, with their known and proven benefits, appliances are not widely used for data protection and management. Too often, organizations take a "Do-It-Yourself" approach with their backup and recovery solution, and waste time and money.

    The Evolution of DataOps at GSK (GlaxoSmithKline)
    Chuck Smith - VP of Data Strategy - GlaxoSmithKline | Bryan Duxbury - Chief Technologist - StreamSets Mar 21 2019 5:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    GlaxoSmithKline is a pharmaceutical company that has pioneered a transformation of its R&D data and analytics infrastructure. Creating a new drug can take anywhere from 8 years to 20 years for a pharmaceutical company and GSK aimed to shorten that development time by giving over 8,000 scientists access to trial data. GSK is focused on bringing siloed data together into a primary data and information platform where users across the enterprise can consume all the data in different ways.

    In order to deliver these capabilities GSK has set up a Center of Excellence (COE) around data delivery and dataops. The team is responsible for dynamically scaling its data flows to meet the demands of new data sources. They have evolved the data practices over time to automate aspects of data acquisition and delivery utilizing bot-driven pipelines.

    VP of Strategy at GSK Chuck Smith joins us for a look at the solution and talks about the future.

    During this webinar, we will discuss:

    -Building a DataOps practice
    -High-level solution and architecture overview
    -Best practices for automation

  • The Role of SRE in Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery
    The Role of SRE in Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery
    Shamim Ahmed Mar 25 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Site Reliability Engineering (or SRE) has been gaining popularity recently to help improve reliability of systems as well as a prescriptive approach to implementing DevOps. Testers similarly play a key role in helping to balance the needs of velocity with overall system quality.

    SREs develop, maintain and operate software that automates the traditional roles of the system administrator at large scale, such as configuration and cluster management systems, and that support reliability and scalability goals, such as container virtualization and the systems architecture of microservices

    In this webinar we’ll explore:
    * The synergies and differences between SREs and testers
    * How testers can work with SREs and development teams to balance the needs of velocity and quality
    * Tools to help integrate SRE into Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery

  • Parallel Wireless Unified 2G/3G/4G/5G Open vRAN
    Parallel Wireless Unified 2G/3G/4G/5G Open vRAN
    Zahid Ghadialy, Sr. Dir., Strategic Mktg and 3G/4G Blogger and Babak Jafarian, Dir, Strategic Business Communications Mar 26 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The telecoms industry is capital intensive, so every dollar and every cent spent on new infrastructure needs to be accounted for. The biggest expense for mobile operators has always been the RAN, accounting for around 60 % of CAPEX (and 65 % of OPEX). Older (2G, 3G) technologies are becoming more expensive to maintain alongside with 4G and soon 5G. The Open Compute model of the data center has the potential to help operators to move away from proprietary hardware to a virtualized network architecture. Some of TIP’s (Telecom Infrastructure Project) initiatives by Facebook) highest-profile activities are aimed specifically at the RAN, where the proprietary nature of several interfaces has stopped operators from using more than one vendor. The software-based approach for older Gs is unheard of where by virtue of the original design, it’s impossible to reconfigure legacy 2G and 3G networks to support newer communications standards such as 4G, and eventually 5G. In this webinar learn how Parallel Wireless Open RAN technology, designed on x86 across baseband processing platform, radio hardware, and radio and core software, simplifies MNOs business models to support ALL current, present, and future Gs for a better service to the end users at much lower cost. We will present recent case studies from TIP Summit from operators like Telefonica, MTN and Vodafone. www.parallelwireless.com
  • Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data
    Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data
    Jim Davis, Fluke Networks Mar 26 2019 3:00 pm UTC 71 mins
    This presentation will look at some of the requirements for field testing Single Mode fiber to make sure it will support the new applications you are planning to run on it. Starting with inspection and cleaning it will answer many of those little questions, “can I use that click pen from UPC multimode connectors on APC connectors?, How do I inspect APC connectors?”

    From there the presentation will move on to the calculation of a loss budget, what is the correct budget, and what wavelengths should be tested. We will look at the best practices in Tier I loss testing to assure the minimum of uncertainty in our test results. The presentation will explain how this can be done for both single connectors such as LC and SC as well as MPO connections.

    Finally, we will look at troubleshooting the fiber using an OTDR and give an introduction to the identification of common events in Single Mode OTDR traces.
