  • Save More Than 50 Percent on Your Migration to Cloud by Rightsizing Save More Than 50 Percent on Your Migration to Cloud by Rightsizing Chris Schin, Vice President, Products Recorded: Jul 21 2016 28 mins
    Join this webinar to see how the CloudPhysics Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer identifies opportunities to lower your costs of running applications on the public cloud.

    The Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer automatically identifies on-premises virtual machines (VMs) that are over-provisioned with more resources (such as CPU and memory) than they use. This lets you optimize instance matching to the ideal cloud instances. Rightsizing reveals the verifiable cost of running workloads in the cloud. Now you can answer the question, “will we save money by migrating applications to the cloud?”

    This webinar shows how Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer collects resource utilization data from each VM on a fine-grained basis, and then analyzes those data across time to discover the VM’s actual resource needs. Imagine an on-premises VM configured with 8 vCPUs: if the Rightsizer shows that it has never used more than 2 vCPUs, you can Rightsize that VM to a smaller instance in the cloud, saving substantial funds.

  • Securing Privileged Accts in Industrial Control Systems & Operational Technology Securing Privileged Accts in Industrial Control Systems & Operational Technology Adrian Davis, Managing Director (ISC)² EMEA, Christian Goetz, Director Professional Services, CyberArk Recorded: Jul 14 2016 62 mins
    Industrial organizations face greater cyber security challenges today as traditionally air-gapped or segmented operational technology (OT) networks become increasingly connected to IT systems and the internet, exposing critical ICS endpoints and other assets to aggressive threats related to abuse of privileged accounts or other currently very common threats like ransomware.
    IT/OT convergence and related cyber security risks can threaten uptime and consumer safety. Nearly all users in ICS environments require some level of privileged access and are therefore being targeted. Protecting ICS users and managing those risks should more closely mirror IT privileged account security best practices.

    Focusing on aspects and mitigation strategies of securing privileged accounts in ICS/OT environments like:
    - Quantify the Risk and Reduce the Attack Surface
    - Secure and Monitor Remote Access
    - Protect Against Malware and Ransomware Attacks
    - Identify Suspicious Activity

  • IP Flow Analytics Enabled by Saisei and DPDK IP Flow Analytics Enabled by Saisei and DPDK Bill Beckett, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Saisei Recorded: Jul 12 2016 46 mins
    IP Flow data is at the heart of most network visibility and analytics solutions. Acquiring a complete view of the network based on flow data records is a technical possibility, but almost never actually implemented in practice because of the complexity and compute, storage, and network overhead that make the implementation impractical and almost requiring a data scientist to deploy.

    In this webinar, Saisei will discuss how its Big Data network analytics software, coupled with open source DPDK and Intel processors, enable a distributed IP Flow analytics model that makes billions of network analytics available in less than a second through distributed network sensors. The Saisei Flow Data API designed on top of DPDK is making the previous impractical task of gaining 100% network visibility a reality -- delivering complete visibility and network analytics data on-demand to users directly or through any of their current management tools. And it's doing it with a 1000th of the network, compute and storage overhead previously required. Saisei is making Big Data networking possible without the big box, overhead, complexity and costs.

    Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.

    A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.
  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Jul 26 2016 6:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts

  • When Bad Things Happen to Good Data:  Plan For & Achieve Business Continuity When Bad Things Happen to Good Data: Plan For & Achieve Business Continuity Jon Toigo, Chairman, Data Management Institute Jul 28 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    High Availability doesn’t trump Disaster Recovery and there is nothing simple about creating a recovery capability for your business – unless you have a set of data protection and business continuity services that can be applied intelligently to your workload, managed centrally, and tested non-disruptively. The good news is that developing such a capability, which traditionally required the challenge of selecting among multiple point product solutions then struggling to fit them into a coherent disaster prevention and recovery framework, just got a lot easier.

    Join us and learn how DataCore’s Software-Defined and Hyper-Converged Storage platform provides the tools you need and a service management methodology you require to build a fully functional recovery strategy at a cost you can afford.

  • Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Marissa Tarleton, CMO, RetailMeNot Jul 28 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shoppers have an unlimited number of retail apps that promise to deliver the right product at the right price at the right time. The latest and greatest app bells and whistles may attract the new user, but developing them into a long-term follower/ user is easier said than done. It’s easier to get them then to keep them, after all.

    With an increasing number of apps on a user’s device, app marketers are challenged to draw the user's attention not only through efficient user acquisition initiatives, but also via engagement and retention activities. Leveraging marketing automation technology to increase user lifetime value and minimize cost per install is the crux of the issue. Let VentureBeat’s panel of experts shed light on how to use marketing automation to implement acquisition strategies that work.

    By identifying synergies between acquisition and user engagement, this webinar hits the high points of reactivation tactics (via push, email, retargeting) and virality initiatives to increase LTV and lower CPI.

    In this webinar, you will:

    * Harness the power of marketing automation to build a user acquisition program that works
    * Explore key strategies for efficient, highly-optimized user acquisition
    * Gain new best practices for engaging and retaining users while reducing churn
    * Learn acquisition-engagement synergy tactics such as: pre- and post-install segmentation, organic growth, retargeting and reward-based acquisition

  • Micro-Segmentation Series: What it Is and What it Isn’t Micro-Segmentation Series: What it Is and What it Isn’t Matt De Vincentis, Senior Product Line Marketing Manager at VMware Aug 3 2016 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    What Don’t You Know About Micro-Segmentation?

    Join us for the first in a three-episode series on micro-segmentation, how it protects networks, and how it works with perimeter firewalls. We’ll also discuss its advantages beyond protection in automating security workflows and more.

    IT managers are challenged with a new breed of data center threats, ones that move within the data center, not just through the perimeter. Firewalls are not enough to contain attacks that move laterally between servers. Micro-segmentation of the network restricts this unauthorized east-west movement, but it can’t be implemented with firewalls. Join us and come away with a better understanding of micro-segmentation and how it works. You’ll learn about:

    • How micro-segmentation secures your data center cost-effectively
    • Three essential elements of micro-segmentation
    • Why micro-segmentation can’t be achieved with legacy technology
  • Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy | Key Capabilities & Pitfalls to Avoid Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy | Key Capabilities & Pitfalls to Avoid Rob Beekmans, Citrix Certified Expert & Senior Consultant with PQR and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations Aug 3 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    93% of respondents to the 2016 Citrix Performance Survey see Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop as two of the most performance sensitive technologies in use in enterprise networks today. Slow logins, frequent session disconnects and slow screen refreshes are just some of common complaints that Citrix administrators have to deal with these days. Furthermore, often when a user complains that their desktop is slow or an application is slow to launch, the issue is not in the Citrix tiers – but instead in the network, the virtualization platform, or storage tiers. End-to-end visibility, root-cause diagnosis and proactive alerting are therefore key requirements for Citrix administrators.

    Join us for this webinar, ‘Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy: Key Capabilities and Pitfalls to Avoid‘, where Citrix Certified Expert Rob Beekmans, Senior Consultant with PQR, a Citrix Platinum Advisor, and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the key requirements of effective Citrix performance monitoring as well as common pitfalls you need to avoid.
