  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is now a mature technology that is being adopted by organizations with increasing popularity. However, the user community who needs high-end graphics capabilities in their work (such as 3D modelling and simulations) were somewhat skeptical about the capabilities and performance of VDI with applications using 3D graphics, compared to the performance they can expect from a physical PC or workstation with a dedicated GPU. Recent advances in VDI help make this performance gap narrower by providing the capabilities for either a pool of virtual desktops (shared GPU) or, to a specific virtual desktop (GPU pass through), depending on the user requirements.

  • Every application, email, web page and Internet connection relies on information encapsulated into a data packet that can be easily distributed across networks. These packets include information about the sender and receiver, as well as the actual contents, or payload. By manipulating pieces of the packet data, criminals can infiltrate networks, applications, data centers, and individual computers.
    How do you defend your network against advanced threats that manipulate data at the packet level? Join Steve Smith, Senior Technical Marketing Manager at McAfee for a revealing presentation on the current state of threat prevention. Find out why you should be using deep packet inspection (DPI) for protocol identification, normalization, and data stream-based inspection to detect and block threats, in both clear-text and encrypted connections. And stop Advanced Persistent Threats (ATP) that rely on packet manipulation to thwart most common firewall and IPS defenses.
  • Today’s distributed business is forcing enterprises to build new data centers, adopt clouds, and move existing servers and clusters of servers to geographically distributed locations in order to provide nonstop, reliable, and secure access to critical business applications for users anywhere, anytime. As a result, connecting and sharing these resources securely across this landscape of multi-site data centers and clouds is not a choice — it’s a requirement. But interconnecting data centers is hard, and requires close coordination across different IT teams. Virtual networking and software defined networking (SDN) only exacerbate the problem.

  • Frictionless access to information makes everyone think they can do this at home. But, in fact, deploying OpenStack on optimized hardware hardware presents a hatful of challenges that your infrastructure team might not have thought about.

    In this session, we'll look at a range of challenges that can stop your project before it makes it to deployment. The session is divided into two topics that we’ll dive into:

    (a) Introduction to scalability techniques: clouds from a hardware perspective.
    Building a large cloud is more than just throwing hardware into a hall and lighting it up. Network, storage, compute and scaling strategies must be designed in from the beginning. In the current state of the art of OpenStack, some decisions are easy to unwind later on and some are impossible. This portion of the presentation will focus on describing the steps you need to execute to build a successful cloud and which decisions you can push off to later.

    (b) The second section of the session will focus on strategies to simplify the optimized hardware experience. If you’re assembling racks on onsite, you need a plan to deal with everything from cabling and airflow to the NIC firmware and drivers. Each of these details can delay your project and run up costs. We’ll also look at the trend toward scalable rack-level units that are factory integrated and tested.

    Attendees will also learn about some of the simple things that are obvious with enterprise hardware but can be challenging in any optimized hardware environment. Examples include power on/off, power monitoring, system health/event monitoring, remote console access.

    You'll leave this session armed with practical knowledge about running OpenStack on Open Compute and other optimized hardware hardware.
  • This is part 1 of our 2-part series on Big Data Visibility with Network Packet Brokers (NPBs).

    Even as network data has exploded in volume, velocity and variety, network monitoring solutions have been behind the curve in adopting new technologies and approaches to cost-effectively scale and accommodate a widening virtualization trend. Customers are demanding greater freedom in how applications are deployed and are moving to a consolidated, shared model of data using big data frameworks, such as Hadoop, which enable large-scale processing and retrieval for multiple stakeholders.

    Join Andrew R. Harding, VP of Product Line Management at VSS Monitoring, as he discusses:
    - Big data and its implications for network monitoring and forensics
    - Why network monitoring solutions are lagging from a virtualization standpoint and why this is a problem for network owners
    - How certain traditional network monitoring functions will eventually be offloaded to adjacent technologies
    - How Network Packet Brokers can accelerate the adoption of virtualized probes, “open” storage, and big data technologies within network management / monitoring
    • How a Big Data Visibility architecture can enable network data to become part of the “big data store,” allowing it to integrate with the rest of enterprise data
  • - Cache is not just for virtualization anymore (actually it never was)

    Server and Desktop virtualization capture a lot of attention from storage vendors these days, especially Flash or SSD vendors. Server-side flash solutions have vaulted into the market lead and are the most commonly implemented method to solve virtualization performance issues. While the value of using server-side flash is undeniable, the fact remains that most data centers have large numbers of bare metal servers that also require high performance.

    Join us for our live webinar in which experts from Storage Switzerland and SanDisk discuss how to analyze these bare metal systems to determine if they can benefit from a flash based performance boost and which of the many flash options available are best for them (Shared Flash, Server Side Flash or Server Side Caching).
