  • Enabling a software life cycle for IoT devices: from CPE to Enterprise Gateways Enabling a software life cycle for IoT devices: from CPE to Enterprise Gateways Manik Taneja Product Manager, Ubuntu Core Nov 1 2016 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Most embedded devices today never see a software update once shipped from the factory. Even if a software update is available, it's still very cumbersome to apply. More often than not, the update process is riddled with artifacts relying entirely on the end consumer. Given the complexities of keeping/maintaining the device, it's no surprise that adding to it capabilities with new software is challenging.
    In this session, we are going to introduce novel ways to manage a device life cycle. This new paradigm of software design enables transactional updates, application isolation and security as fundamental building blocks.
  • Big Data Drives Big Efficiency Big Data Drives Big Efficiency Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics with Aali Masood, Senior Director, Oracle Nov 1 2016 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Improving the efficiency of existing processes is critical for enterprises, and one of the first proof points of many big data projects. In the long-term enterprises may be looking for big data to generate revenue from new projects and applications, but proving the potential benefits by improving the efficiency of existing business processes – such as optimizing supply chains, or accelerating compliance – is a good place to start. Additionally, operating more efficiently at lower cost and with lower risk enables an organization to redirect budget towards driving growth.

    Join Oracle and 451 Research for a webinar exploring how to make this operational efficiency possible through a combination of data management, statistical analysis and visualization.
  • How and Why to Containerize Your Legacy Applications How and Why to Containerize Your Legacy Applications George Crump, Storage Switzerland Nov 1 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Agile IT: it is far easier to say than to implement. But data centers need to make the move to Agile IT so their organizations can survive the digital transformation. At the heart of these efforts are modern DevOps environments that leverage container technology to create applications that are mobile and scale, up or down, as demand requires. The problem is most data centers also have legacy, not containerized, applications that are inflexible and immobile. The combination of a burgeoning DevOps Infrastructure and Legacy Applications is called “bi-modal IT” but it is not ideal.

    Join experts from Storage Switzerland and HyperGrid as they discuss new alternatives to bi-modal IT that allow organizations to containerize legacy applications to create a completely agile data center.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Mauve Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask/Mauve Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, Mellanox, Chad Hintz, Cisco, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox, J Metz, Cisco Nov 1 2016 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In this part of the series, “Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” we’re going to be focusing on the network aspect of storage systems.

    As with any technical field, it’s too easy to dive into the jargon of the pieces and expect people to know exactly what you mean. Unfortunately, some of the terms may have alternative meanings in other areas of technology. In this Webcast, we look at some of those terms specifically and discuss them as they relate to storage networking systems.

    In particular, you’ll find out what we mean when we talk about:

    •Channel versus Busses
    •Control Plane versus Data Plane
    •Fabric versus Network

    For people who are familiar with Data Center Technology, whether it be Compute, Programming, or even Storage itself, some of these concepts may seem intuitive and obvious… until you start talking to people who are really into this stuff. This series of Webcasts will help be your Secret Decoder Ring to unlock the mysteries of what is going on when you hear these conversations.

  • Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise George Crump, Storage Switzerland Nov 3 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Object Storage promises many things - unlimited scalability, both in terms of capacity and file count, low cost but highly redundant capacity and excellent connectivity to legacy NAS. But, despite these promises object storage has not caught on in the enterprise like it has in the cloud. It seems like, for the enterprise object storage just isn’t a good fit. The problem is that most object storage system’s starting capacity is too large. And while connectivity to legacy NAS systems is available, seamless integration is not. Can object storage be sized so that it is a better fit for the enterprise?

  • Wave Goodbye to Tape-based Backups and Archive your Data in the Cloud Wave Goodbye to Tape-based Backups and Archive your Data in the Cloud Joey Wright, Solutions Architect, SoftNAS Inc. Nov 8 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gartner states that by 2020, 30% of organizations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery (disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.). Business continuity plans are a must in today’s environment, where even a few minutes of downtime result in lost revenue. Data backup procedures are a critical part of these business continuity plans. But as the menu of backup options increases with the introduction of new technology, it can be difficult to choose which backup method is best for your business.

    In this webinar we’ll cover:

    -Replacing tape backups: Disk or Cloud?
    -Backup challenges: Restoration, security, compliance and time
    -How to backup and archive your data on AWS
    -Backup and archive use cases

  • Building Best-In-Class SD-WANs with Intel Compute Technology Building Best-In-Class SD-WANs with Intel Compute Technology Vijay Sagar - VP of Product Management, CloudGenix Nov 8 2016 6:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    More is being asked of the enterprise WAN than ever before—providing direct connectivity to the cloud, understanding what applications are and how they are performing, and providing security functions in a cost-effective fashion all the way to the branch. Traditional ASIC-based WAN architectures, while providing excellent forwarding performance, lack the flexibility to adapt to the needs of the enterprise WAN both today and in the future. This webinar will address the key architectural benefits of Intel architectures and how they can enable next generation SD-WANs, as well as the benefits that end customers can realize including lower acquisition cost, faster service enablement and lowest ongoing total cost of ownership.

  • Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Peter Wannemacher, Senior analyst, Forrester Research Nov 9 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Stop implementing; start planning. Forrester Research shows that while messaging platform chatbots can be effective, the customer experience is too often unacceptably poor. And while it’s not a big deal when you’re ordering a pizza, the stakes are far too high for financial institutions to go all in on this generation’s chatbot technology without the right planning.

    Simply put, being too early can be the same as being wrong. Bots are only as good as the systems behind them — outdated architecture and poor integration can sabotage your services and drive away customers.

    But given bot technologies are shaping up to be an essential part of the FI and fintech mix, your next two to three years should be devoted to investing in foundational digital initiatives that will position you to leverage the future that’s coming fast.

    Join this free VB Live event to learn how to reap the rewards of future fintech AI innovation — and get it right the first time.

    By attending this webinar, you'll

    * Re-engineer back-end systems to enable real-time action
    * Make progress on platform improvements—or replacements
    * Embrace APIs for faster, more dynamic future changes
