The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.
Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:
Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line

Digital storage plays a significant role in the professional media and entertainment industry. Digital storage for the M&E industry has demand characteristics often very different from typical IT storage because of the performance requirements of real-time video in capture, editing and post-production, as well as distribution. On the other hand, the ever growing archive of long-tail digital content and increasing digitized historical analog content is swelling the demand for cold as well as warm archives using tape, optical discs and hard drive arrays.
In March through May of 2014 Coughlin Associates, Inc. conducted a survey of professional media and entertainment professionals on various digital storage topics. The survey was broken down into several segments: content capture, editing and post-production, content delivery as well as archiving and digital preservation. This talk will include data from this survey as well as projections from the 2014 Digital Storage in Media and Entertainment Report covering major uses of digital storage technology in professional media and entertainment.

The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.
Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
In most targeted attacks, threat actors use existing vulnerabilities as point of entry to exploit vulnerable systems. Many organizations understand the importance of closing the holes by patching the system immediately, however, in reality it is an impossible task. Zero-day vulnerabilities leave the system perpetually vulnerable, leaving attackers free to zero-in to take advantage of the hole. All it takes is one vulnerability for a system to be compromised.
This Virtual Patching webinar discusses the options organizations have to better manage vulnerabilities. It presents new methods to help organizations adapt & mitigate known & unknown vulnerabilities.
Hybrid clouds are rapidly emerging as the ideal model for data-driven applications. The allure of better performance and agility at a lower total cost is compelling to business and technical managers alike.
