  • Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Detect Ransomware Before it’s Too Late with AlienVault USM Jim Hansen Recorded: Feb 21 2017 61 mins
    By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.

    You'll learn:

    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage
  • Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability George Crump, Storage Switzerland Recorded: Feb 21 2017 60 mins
    VMware's stretch cluster does an excellent job of protecting against a site failure. If your primary data center fails then it is easy to bring up VMs in the second site. But what if you need more? How can you extend VMware's stretch cluster capability from single site protection to multiple sites? What if you want to extend recovery into the cloud? A multi-site and multi-cloud data distribution strategy not only creates more resilient IT operations, it also empowers workload mobility.

    In this live webinar Storage Switzerland and Hedvig will discuss the limitations of VMware stretch cluster, the possibilities of a more highly available approach and how to achieve complete IT resiliency.

    LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.

    This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.

    - An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
    - When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
    - What issues such networks solve
    - The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
    - Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
    - How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
    - Sample use cases
    - Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others
    - How to make money as both a user and deployer of LPWAN networks

    The Rules of RAID are Changing, co-hosted by VMware and Spiceworks

    Back in the day, rules were create for storage admins to make deciding on RAID levels easy. RAID 10 for performance. RAID 6 for bulk capacity. RAID 5 for… well… we’re not sure.

    But thanks to advances in storage technology like flash SSDs and virtual SANs, the rules of RAID are changing. Tune into this week’s On the Air, where we’ll talk about WHY these changes are meaningful and where we need to go with RAID from here. We’ll be sitting down with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from VMware.

    What we're discussing:
    How the original rules of RAID came to be... and why they may no longer apply

    How using flash can change the way you need to think about redundancy (and yes, it's affordable now)

    How per-object RAID with VSAN can lower your risk as your storage capacity grows
  • Prepare for Tomorrow's Apps: Containers and VMware vSAN Prepare for Tomorrow's Apps: Containers and VMware vSAN Michael Haag, Product Line Manager Storage and Availability VMware Recorded: Feb 10 2017 63 mins
    Technology is shifting faster than ever before with the emergence of new data center architectures, thanks to HCI, and new application architectures, thanks to cloud-native apps and containers. IT departments are faced with addressing immediate day-to-day challenges but also looking ahead to how they can embrace these emerging architectures. Luckily the virtualization revolution of the past decade means organizations are well positioned to evolve their current IT infrastructure to shift to HCI, which provides numerous advantages to cloud-native apps that have their own unique requirements that are important for IT teams to understand. VMware is focused on addressing these requirements as we continue to accelerate the evolution to HCI with vSAN. The hypervisor-integrated architecture of vSAN provides numerous benefits for cloud-native applications, whether deployed on own or as the underlying storage services to Photon Platform.

    Takeaways:
    **How HCI and new cloud-native applications are changing the approach to IT

    **What are the new requirements needed to successful run cloud-native apps and containers

    **How are HCI solutions powered by vSAN well suited to meet new requirements

  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Feb 9 2017 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users
