  • Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend— software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability.

    Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.

  • We are entering rapidly changing times in the storage arena leading to major transformations of traditional SAN based storage environments.

    This webinar will discuss three tactics you can deploy to define an appropriate service framework for the delivery of storage services within your business and allow you to effectively evaluate the technology offerings and operational models now available.
  • Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyper-converged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
  • 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
  • Whether your nemesis is a malicious attack, a hurricane or (more likely) human error, have you collected all the tools you need to triumph and save the day?

    There are a host of technologies available to those prepping for potential business disruptions: backups on-premise, backups in the cloud, on-premise failovers, Disaster Recovery as a Service, and, of course, delivering an offering of cable and silicon to your mainframe every Tuesday at noon.

    Obviously, you don’t need all of these options – but which do you need? And why would you choose one over the other? Join this webinar to learn:
    - What has changed since your tried-and-true backup plan was hatched in 2010
    - How to evaluate on-premise vs. cloud-based options
    - How to marry different technologies to create a complete solution
    - What to consider when selecting a technology or cloud partner

    With 10 years of experience leading the DRaaS and Backup market around the world, we’ve seen a lot of technologies come and go – and have some strong opinions and solid guidance for our customers on how best to evaluate options.
  • Most telcos are in the process of migrating their customers to an all-IP environment. An approach enabling multiple services via a single connection, and thus creates a more efficient network and new services.
    However a single connection failing creates problems of its own. In today’s world an hour off-line can cost a significant amount of money, even for a small business. In our webinar we want to evaluate the risk without dramatizing it and review potential scenarios to mitigate the threat.
    Enabling you to have a meaningful, fact based discussion internally or with your customer.
  • We will discuss how to take a pure business view in developing a strategy aligned to the value of the data, independent of the technology landscape available.
    We will also discuss how to take the strategy defined and assess the applicability of technology based approaches, adopting third party managed service offerings or utilising the cloud as a backup platform.
  • Join our panel of product experts who work directly with Virtual SAN customers, and get some practical tips and tricks on deploying Virtual SAN. Whether it’s your first time working with Virtual SAN, or you are looking to expand your existing environment, we’ll share some of the best advice from those who have gone before you.

    You’ll come away with ideas you can apply from the pre-deployment to the post-deployment phase, including:
    •What to look for when evaluating storage and infrastructure options
    •Benefits of Virtual SAN that admins often don’t realize up-front, but discover after deployment
    •Key tools to have in place post-deployment and how they help
  • 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.
  • As business demands faster delivery of quality applications, development and testing teams are stepping up the pace at which they are building, testing and pushing applications into production. In this new fast-paced world of DevOps, how should operations and infrastructure teams address the new challenges they face? Production environments are all about stability as you have to keep customer facing critical systems up and running – how can you manage that with a rapid cascade of changes coming every few hours or days?

    Join us on this web event to hear how you can increase the Ops team contribution to the business beyond just keeping systems up and running and in stable condition. We’ll discuss what you can learn from customers and use that to provide insight to your business.

    Join us to see how you can lead the DevOps adoption in your Enterprise.
