Data Center Management

  • AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers
    AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers Guylain Barlow, Viavi Recorded: Nov 20 2017 60 mins
    Data Centers vary widely in nature and can be roughly classified as hyperscale, multi-tenant, and private. A critical and common component in the operation of such data centers is the installation and maintenance of the physical cabling infrastructure. A fundamental change taking place is the evolution from cables using classic connectors on copper (RJ-45) or fiber optics (LC) to cables terminated by pluggables such as SFP or QSFP. This represents a new challenge as these cables, called Active Optical Cable (AOC) or Direct Attach Copper (DAC), are not easily validated and tested.

  • Tiered Hadoop for Analytics at Extreme Scale
    Tiered Hadoop for Analytics at Extreme Scale Sai Devulapalli & Boni Bruno, Dell EMC and Jeff Schmitt, Hortonworks Recorded: Nov 15 2017 50 mins
    Enterprises realize that data is the fuel that data science teams crave but data is growing at an explosive rate, with COLD data growing at a much faster rate than HOT. As these data volumes grow beyond 75 TB, continuing to scale HDFS clusters using compute with local storage (DAS) gets very expensive and complex to manage. At some point you’re forced to start archiving, or worse purging, COLD data making it difficult to access and potentially throwing away valuable insights.
    Dell EMC understands this problem and we’ve developed a new HDFS tiering capability with Hortonworks which effectively adds a “capacity-centric” data overlay on top of Hadoop DAS infrastructure. This integrated tier enables enterprises to continue to use existing applications such as Hive, Spark, Map-reduce, and others, while offering a more cost effective, simple, and efficient way to scale data lakes from the 100 of TB range up into the PB’s. The tiered solution enables the business to access to ALL of their data, both HOT and COLD, for analytics from business intelligence to machine learning. And most importantly, it allows the specific business use cases to define the tiering rules for performance and scale.
    In this webcast, we will discuss some of the challenges that enterprises encounter when the data volumes in their analytics platforms are no longer manageable and the impact this causes on the business. We’ll detail:
    1. How the Dell EMC Isilon tiered storage solution delivers the best cost-capacity-performance tradeoff for Hadoop deployments
    2. How the solution works from a technical perspective
    3. How customers can easily integrate the solution into their existing environment to derive more value from their data, drive deeper customer insights, improve operational efficiency, and accelerate time to market.

    Network Teams, Need A Wingman? Why ExtraHop Addy won the EMA Innovator’s Award Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst at EMA Research and Isaac Roybal, Product Director at ExtraHop Networks Nov 29 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Network administrators and engineers function as “human middleware” for their monitoring tools, according to Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst at EMA Research. Skilled humans still need to do much of the heavy lifting in terms of analyzing data.

    That’s the problem holding back many network operations teams from achieving greater productivity. But there’s hope! EMA recently bestowed its Innovator’s Award on ExtraHop’s Addy machine learning offering for its ability to remove much of the burden from human operators. Join this webinar to learn how machine learning can help under-resourced network teams do more with less.
  • Rethinking Application Delivery in the Cloud Era
    Rethinking Application Delivery in the Cloud Era Brad Casemore, Research Director, Datacenter Networks, IDC & George McGregor, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Citrix Nov 30 2017 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Today, multi-cloud is the new norm for cloud adopting organizations. The organizations that thrive will be those that can adapt their multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud architecture to simply and reliably deliver applications. According to IDC, 94% of organizations are already reassessing, modifying, or overhauling their network to facilitate app delivery for a cloud-first world. Wanting to dive deeper, Citrix commissioned IDC to conduct a custom survey of 900 organizations to uncover how enterprises were meeting the network requirements for cloud adaptation.

    Join guest speaker Brad Casemore, IDC’s Research Director, Datacenter Networks and George McGregor, Citrix Senior Director of Product Marketing, as we present the results of this unique survey, which delves into the infrastructure required to deliver applications and what changes are needed from the traditional datacenter approach as apps move to the cloud.

    Attend this on-demand webinar and discover: 

    •How your peers adapt application delivery network and infrastructure for cloud
    •Data to support what’s working and not working
    •The top concerns preventing successful cloud adoption
  • The Foundation of Cloud Security
    The Foundation of Cloud Security Garrett Bekker, Principal Security Analyst at 451 Research & Richard Walters, Chief Security Strategist at CensorNet Nov 30 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cybercrime damages are predicted to cost organizations $6 trillion by the year 2021, doubling from $3 trillion in recent years,1 and some say this astronomical figure may be an underestimation. As more organizations shift their infrastructure to the cloud, the number of attack vectors grows fueling an exponential increase in cybercriminal activity – and it’s not expected to slow down any time soon.

    Lack of visibility is one of the greatest vulnerabilities posed by the move away from on-premises, firewall-protected systems and apps to the cloud. Ultimately, it is near impossible to protect what you can’t see, and gaining insight into cloud properties owned and managed by external vendors can be a challenge. Yet, building strong cyber defenses depends on having a view into every corner of your environment to identify single risk factors as well as anomalies across your network.
    In this webinar, 451 Research and CensorNet share how organizations can implement a comprehensive security solution that delivers visibility throughout your environment. We’ll cover:

    •An overview of the cloud security market and current trends
    •The four most common attack vectors and how to secure them
    •Why a unified approach to security is imperative to identifying threats
    •Why avoiding complex security solutions helps improve visibility
    •How to expand your visibility beyond single points of vulnerability to catch cloaked attacks
    •And more
