  • The critical applications and services your end-users rely on every day can be deployed on-premise, hosted in the cloud, or even SaaS applications provided by a 3rd party that never cross your infrastructure. Your users don’t care where the app is running; they just need it to be available…and fast. And when there is a problem, they expect IT to resolve it!

    Join us on this webinar and see how to get visibility to all your applications so you can quickly and proactively identify where the problem is and resolve it quickly. Then, it really won’t matter where the applications are deployed!

    And the best news is that you can combine this application visibility with analysis from your OptiView XG. During the webinar you will learn:

    •The challenges of today’s Borderless Enterprise (aka – the network is outside of your 4 walls!)
    •How to monitor all your applications
    •How to use this visibility to extend your OptiView XG

    BONUS: There is a Special Promotion for OptiView XG owners!

  • Flash storage has the power to transform the way we do business, enabling organizations to accelerate IT, deliver a richer user experience, and gain real-time insights into their operations. But until now flash storage solutions have forced you to compromise on price, performance, or features. Some are super fast, but that speed comes with a steep price tag. Others are economical, but they lack enterprise-grade capabilities.

    Join Chris Tsilipounidakis as he discusses the latest advancements in flash technology and how Tegile is disrupting the industry by engineering intelligent flash arrays that deliver high performance and enterprise capabilities at one-third the cost traditional arrays. Learn how you can accelerate your business, maximize uptime, and achieve IT efficiencies with Tegile flash storage.
  • A seemingly never-ending string of large scale data breaches across all sectors of the economy and government have had devastating affects on countless individuals — and irreparably damaged organizations of all kinds. It’s been proven that privileged users, and the accounts and credentials they use, are a crucial element in conducting a successful attack. But it’s possible to protect those users and stop data breaches in their tracks.

    In this webcast, we’ll explain how Xsuite and privileged identity management can stop attackers at multiple points in the data breach lifecycle, preventing damage and disruption. Join us to learn:

    - Who are privileged users and why are they important?
    - How do attackers exploit privileged users and their credentials to carry out breaches?
    - See a hands-on demonstration of Xsuite and how it can manage, control, and protect privileged users and credentials and your business assets.

  • Does Your Organisation Really Know Its True or Total IT Cost Aug 12 2015 9:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Jerry Wertelecky, CPA, Fellow HKloD & Managing Director
    IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.

    Join Jerry Wertelecky as he discusses:

    • Facilitate collaboration between IT and Finance to increase visibility into the costs, utilization and operations of all IT Services

    • Leverage a deep understanding of what drives IT costs and performance to improve scenario planning capabilities and make better IT decisions

    • Provide IT cost and consumption data to business owners in the form of a “Bill of IT” to more effectively communicate the value of IT to the business.

    Parag Thakore, Director, Product Management
    The enterprise WAN is adapting to address the pervasive availability of broadband Internet, the shift of applications to the cloud and the increasing demands for real-time, online and critical applications in the branch office. At the same time enterprises have made significant investments in their existing WAN architecture infrastructure network equipment and WAN services. Many enterprises are evaluating an SD-WAN solution as a way to address the changing enterprise landscape without decommissioning their existing WAN any time soon.

    VeloCloud will guide you through various flexible architectures and transition steps for SD-WAN that target maximum return while minimizing disruption and risk. Examples of how a cloud-delivered SD-WAN enables flexible transition and deployment in both hybrid and Internet only branches will be shared.

  • DRaaS and Cloud Backup: Can you secure your company's assets with Hybrid Cloud? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 48 mins
    Eric Sansonny, General Manager, Aruba.IT
    Ensuring Business continuity and managing risks is becoming more and more crucial for companies heavily relying on technical infrastructure to run their business such as CRM, ERP, CMS, accounting, big data and more.

    Todays's economy cannot be conceived without the use of such systems, more and more connected and presumably accessible from everywhere.

    Data is now the key asset of any company, and needs to be protected the same way as everyone protects their assets.

    But the reality is far from this. So many companies are "saving" money by using non-redundant infrastructures, networks or servers, and often have to experience the worst scenario to start digging into Disaster Recovery, but it's already too late.

    So join Eric Sansonny as he looks at Disaster Recovery as a Service and Cloud Backups to see if the solution lies there.
  • Hyper-converged BCDR: Using local, remote & cloud-based backups for resiliency Recorded: Jul 23 2015 29 mins
    Wim Vandebroeck, Director of Service, Nutanix
    The vast majority of applications today are under protected – or completely unprotected – making enterprises vulnerable to data loss or downtime during disasters. Legacy data protection and DR solutions, while still relevant to certain classes of workloads, have failed to adapt to the needs of modern virtualized applications and infrastructure.

    Join Wim Vandebroeck as he explains how to use local, remote, and cloud-based backups to achieve high-levels of availability and resiliency in the event of component failure, node failure, rack failure, or an entire datacenter outage.

  • Minimizing Risk with One, Automated Disaster Recovery Solution Recorded: Jul 22 2015 45 mins
    Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer, Long Term Care Group
    Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.

    Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.

    - Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
    - DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
    - Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
    - Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk

    You’ll also see ways to easily connect your data protection efforts to leading cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services’ Storage Gateway and low-cost S3 services.
All you need to know, what it means and why it matters
Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and other recent well-known technology trends in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users.

This channel features presentations by thought leaders who cover the key topic areas in this increasingly important field.
