Over 75% of the application performance problems exist today because of poor performing storage in either IOPS, bandwidth or latency. Achieving ideal storage performance becomes a greater challenge the more diverse and complex the workload, which can ultimately bring storage performance to its knees. Many flash array vendors claim to solve application performance challenges, yet few can keep their performance promises with today’s demands on storage.
In this webcast, we will discuss real world mixed workload requirements for applications focusing on two common use cases – virtualization and SAP. The lessons learned will be valid for all business critical applications. We will focus on how to test mixed workloads and what results to look for from a high performance SSD storage.

The word cloud is much over used, and the debate continues as to whether it should be cloud, or cloud computing. In either case, the main focus is on how the cloud computing market is evolving and where should enterprise customers invest their money? Ovum has conducted many surveys and the results indicate the move toward hybrid cloud computing is fast becoming the top choice for many enterprise customers.
Join Roy Illsley for this webinar and discover why cloud computing is evolving and how it fits in with a wider IT transformation agenda. Roy will share the results of Ovum's latest global adoption survey and discuss the importance of the findings. The key adjacent technologies and the impact on cloud computing will also be explored. Attend and learn how you can put IT transformation and cloud computing in to context.
The Open Data Center Alliance Cloud Maturity Model (CMM) provides an end-to-end visualization for how the use of cloud in the enterprise develops over time (adoption roadmap) and how the enterprise’s ability to adopt cloud-based services within defined governance and control parameters increases.
As it matures, the use of cloud becomes more sophisticated, comprehensive, and optimized. The CMM plots the progression of structured cloud service integration from a baseline of no cloud use through five progressive levels of maturity.
This presentation will walk attendees through the maturity model that the ODCA has developed and how they can apply this model to their organization creating a comprehensive plan to fully integrate cloud into their operations.
Hybrid Cloud seems to many to be the obvious choice. No as insecure or inefficient as public cloud, nor as expensive or restrictive as private cloud. Yet is it really all its hyped up to be? And what of the alternatives?

- Is virtualisation masquerading as the cloud?
- As companies abandon their private clouds, is public the future?
- Is 2014 the year of Hybrid?
- Is Hybrid getting smarter? Is hardware catching up?
Attend this interactive session, ask your questions, voice your opinion and discover whether Hybrid cloud will truly be the future for your organisation, or just a load of hot air.

As organizations move to virtualize their environments they must rethink how the secure their data. Encryption will play a key role in protection of data as perimeter defences become less relevant and traditional security mechanisms struggle to keep threats at bay.
Join your fellow professionals for a best practice session, to first learn the detail on how encryption is expanding as organizations or all shapes and sizes, and from a wide range of industries, migrate to virtual environments. Then discuss several key management best practices to complete "the keychain" for organizations considering a move to the cloud. Finally we look at specific use cases to demonstrate the use of these best practices for encryption and key management in the enterprise.
More and more organizations today are leveraging the public cloud for its infinite scale and economic benefits, but how can you leverage the key attributes of the cloud while still maintaining the control and performance traditional storage allows. The answer? A cloud gateway. Whether you call it a cloud gateway or cloud-integrated storage, if your organization is looking to reduce storage costs, simplify management, or improve service levels to end users, join us as we discuss the growing trend among enterprises today.
Attendees of this event will learn:
•How and why organizations are utilizing cloud gateways in their environment today
•Key considerations when looking into cloud storage and gateways
•How you can leverage a gateway to reduce costs and deliver a higher service level to your end users
