  • 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 Recorded: Jul 28 2016 46 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.

  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 26 2016 54 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
  • Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Sushil Kumar, Robin Systems Recorded: Jul 26 2016 56 mins
    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • End-to-End Architecture for NFV Cloud Communications End-to-End Architecture for NFV Cloud Communications Douglas Tait, Director Oracle Communications Solutions Marketing Aug 16 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    As cloud technologies revolutionize the business model of enterprise computing, the telecommunications industry is leveraging the potential of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a telco flavor of network cloud computing. Cloud computing in communications opens the market to CSPs or Enterprises to take advantage of communications services without owning the equipment or the network – similar to cloud computing in enterprises where the actual computing is done in a data center not owned by the customer. The full range of NFV benefits can be better realized by adopting a fresh approach to service development, instantiation and configuration that builds on the strengths of this computing model. With the NFV and cloud computing approach, services are built differently and run differently but should be consumed like services based on a legacy, non-NFV platforms. These new differences require a new model of thinking, consideration of the inherent trade-offs when planning solutions or services and an understanding of the design patterns that achieve the best results in the most efficient way. This webcast will cover –
    -Cloud business model for driving NFV services
    -The timeline on how to get to Cloud Communications
    -The VNF Cloud requirements for Communications

The performance of databases has a direct bearing on the profitability of your organization, so smart IT planners are always looking for ways to improve the performance of databases and the apps that use them.

    Join Augie Gonzalez, Subject Matter Expert, DataCore to see if hyper covergence holds an answer to reducing latency and driving performance in database operations. But be careful, not all hyper converged solutions show dramatic improvements across the I/O path.
  • Automating the delivery of production ready infrastructure with VMware vRealize Automating the delivery of production ready infrastructure with VMware vRealize David Jasso, Dir. of Product Marketing | Jeffrey Stephens, Sr. Manager Infra Engineering | Thomas Jackson, Infra Architect Aug 17 2016 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    You’ve already virtualized much of your physical infrastructure – making these resources available, dynamic, and low-cost. But how do you manage hundreds and thousands of virtual devices to turn your Software-defined Data Center (SDDC) into a true hybrid cloud, and deliver both infrastructure and applications as services to your business?

    Provisioning apps and underlying infrastructure on day 1 with agility, security, scalability and consistency requires enterprise-class automation. After the delivery, managing the infrastructure on day 2 with deep operational visibility, proactive resource and capacity management, and transparent cost control, requires intelligent management tools. This is what the Cloud Management Platform (CMP) does.

    During this webcast, you will learn how Rent-A-Center, a rapidly growing retail company, used VMware’s enterprise-class CMP to:

    Automate IT and Infrastructure as a Service (ITaaS) allowing IT teams to fully automate their delivery and ongoing management of shared service infrastructure.

    Ease performance, and capacity management of IT services, and turn a heterogeneous environment into a hybrid cloud.
  • Bringing Flash into the Datacenter for Bandwidth-Intensive Applications Bringing Flash into the Datacenter for Bandwidth-Intensive Applications Roark Hilomen, SanDisk Engineering Fellow and Rob Commins, Tegile VP of Marketing Aug 17 2016 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Traditionally spinning hard disk has been used for cost sensitive applications. Now with the introduction of big data and unstructured applications, such as web 2.0 and video surveillance, it’s difficult to sustain high bandwidth and performance at scale.

    Over the past few years, Flash has been used to augment spinning disk for low latency, high performance applications, but density and economics have not allowed it to be deployed throughout the datacenter.

    What if you were able to introduce a multi-tiered flash architecture with the primary tier being performance-optimized and the secondary tier being bandwidth-optimized, all at their highest economical level?

    Join Roark Hilomen, SanDisk Engineering Fellow and Rob Commins, Tegile VP of Marketing, to learn how to achieve high performance and bandwidth for these next-gen application workloads in a multi-tiered flash architecture.
