  • Security and the Data Canter - 4 Trends that Could Change Everything May 15 2014 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    The practice of securing the data center is changing almost as fast as the technology in them. Historically protection of data center assets – physical and virtual – has been siloed. Increased physical terrorism and cyber terrorism are forging a new thinking about how to protect data centers. The requirements for securing the data center are becoming holistic with physical and cyber security integrated into a single discipline.

    So join Jerry L. Bowman, President of Square Mile Systems and Data Center industry veteran as he highlights ways to effectively deal with cyber security and discusses the 4 trends in Data Center security that could change everything:

    - The New Cyber Security – the new expectations of cyber security, including new framework like the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and other important standards and best practices from organizations like ISACA, ISO, TIA and BICSI.

    - Public and Private Clouds – Public and private clouds bring new levels of risk as the emphasis on infrastructure security for data in motion becomes key. This trend is driving new levels of focus on the availability of data across a broader infrastructure.

    - Accreditation – More and more data center professionals are looking for accreditation of their facilities and networks against standards and best practices. The future of accreditation against standards is discussed and the role of the security professional.

    - Shadow IT – The most secure data center in the world isn’t going to provide any protection if IT services are sought by Shadow IT organizations. The increasing tolerance of BYOD (bring your own device) along with the use of often unapproved IT software and services could become the nemesis of cyber security.
  • Panel: In Control - The Impact of Regulation on Data Center Transformation May 15 2014 10:00 am UTC 55 mins
    DCEP in the US has passed House of Representatives, NABERS in Australia is required for all Federal facilities, there is the impending CCA for data centres in the UK (possibly going to be required for all UK Government outsourced deals) in addition to EU Code of Conduct.

    With so much going on in regulation it can be hard to stay ahead, so join this expert Data Center panel, chaired by industry veteran and consultant Gary Thornton, as they discuss regulation, data centers and ask:

    -Is legislation just a matter of time?
    -What does it all mean for you?
    -How will it affect the future data centre landscape?
  • Closing The IT and Data Center Skills Gap May 15 2014 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Transformation in data centers is actually just a part of a wider business and political transformation. In fact CIOs and IT departments who have the skills to meet the existing demands may not have the skills for the future.

    Join Data Center Industry veteran and consultant Gary Thornton as he discusses some major changes facing data center and IT teams and suggests how you can meet any new challenges head on
  • The Software-defined Datacenter in a Hyperconvergence World May 14 2014 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In today's data centers, the need for flexibility and agility is undeniable. As businesses continue to grow and leverage technology to remain competitive, they require a new way of simplified IT. IT organizations can no longer deal with complex, cumbersome legacy infrastructure that can't keep at the pace of the business.

    - What is hyper convergence
    - The benefits of converged infrastructure
    - Best practices and use cases for leveraging hyper converged architectures
  • Is the data center industry heading for a quartz crisis? May 14 2014 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the 1970s and 1980s the Swiss watchmaking industry went almost extinct as Asian companies such as Seiko moved to factory mass manufacturing of the new, cheaper and more accurate quartz watch movement. The Swiss industry shrunk rapidly, most of the brands went under or were sold and had to find a new way to survive. The Swiss survived, at much smaller volume, by producing high cost mechanical watches which were expensively marketed as luxury items, a type of positional good (a good whose value is determined by its desirability to others) and creating an artificial scarcity.

    We have a similar economic event happening in the data center market today. The design, construction and operation of a data center to the minimum TCO has become commoditised, suppliers and operators no longer have any “secret sauce” or knowledge that enables them to substantially outperform the market, at the same time cloud technologies are driving down the market price at a huge rate thanks to the uber operators such as Google and Amazon.

    The questions this raises are;
    1. Which of the current types of data center or equipment supplier will survive?

    2. Will the whole market go to cloud services purchased by the hour and eliminate data center demand entirely?

    3. Will the modular, factory built, data centers become the Quartz watch and virtually eliminate legacy custom design and ‘stick build’?

    4. Are the modular vendors offering real TCO value for money or are they the new luxury brands selling only perceived value and marketing?

    5. What happens to the value of existing data centers for enterprise owner operators and data center businesses?

  • Expand your VDI use cases with Graphics Acceleration Solutions Recorded: Apr 9 2014 61 mins
    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.

    Join Teradici for a deep dive on Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) deployment options for VMware Horizon View and walk away with the GPU knowledge to increase productivity and accelerate your application performance in your virtual environment.
