Why Virtualization Isn't Green, If you Can't Manage It

Michael Rymkiewicz, National Virtualization Practice Manager
BusinessWeek, April 13, 2010, notes that NetApp has shipped more than 5,000 units of V-Series, showing a 70% year-over-year growth in the adoption of the product line. Why has this singular product been recognized by so many organizations as key to greening their data center?

As a heterogeneous storage solution, the V-Series offers customers a method to place a variety of storage arrays in SAN environments under one umbrella system. Whether you are running IBM, HP, HDS, EMC or others, you can leverage the benefits of data deduplication, simplified virtualization infrastructure management, and more efficiently leverage your storage investments. This leads to a savings in storage, power and space which means a lower TCO, higher ROI and a happy CIO. A discussion on various green initiatives virtualization brings to the organization will also be discussed.

Join industry leading solutions integrator, World Wide Technology, to learn more about why you should consider the V-Series, and other similar products, to enhance your data management and virtualization capabilities.

  • User Environment Management (UEM) technologie zorgt ervoor dat alle gebruikers naar tevredenheid kunnen werken op ieder device, terwijl het de IT-omgeving en daarmee het beheer minder complex maakt. Vooral ook in een omgeving met een mix van fysieke en virtuele devices of een combinatie van meerdere devices, locaties of delivery methodes.

    Wil je weten of een UEM-oplossing toegevoegde waarde heeft voor jouw IT-omgeving? Schrijf je dan nu in voor de 5 technische webinars gehost door onze Pre Sales Consultants. Zij gaan in op de vijf belangrijkste redenen om de gebruikerservaring in jouw organisatie naar een hoger niveau te brengen en hoe je dat technisch gezien voor elkaar krijgt.

    Tijdens dit webinar wordt ingegaan op reden #2: Gebruikers willen niks merken van veranderingen in de IT-omgeving. Naast het bespreken van de techniek, laten onze pre-sales door middel van een demo met name zien hoe je ervoor kunt zorgen dat gebruikers gewoon door kunnen werken als er een verandering wordt doorgevoerd in de IT-omgeving. Door UEM worden gebruikers losgekoppeld van het onderliggende systeem en kunnen gebruikersprofielen en gegevens moeiteloos naar nieuwe devices en besturingssystemen worden gemigreerd. Dit vermindert de tijd en complexiteit van een migratie. Door zero-downtime migraties zorg je ervoor dat de productiviteit van gebruikers niet wordt verstoord. En dat scheelt een hoop telefoontjes naar de helpdesk.

  • The developed world's global Internet registries have officially depleted their supply of free IPv4 addresses. IPv6 is not just the future—it’s already here (65% of Verizon’s traffic is over IPv6!). Some organizations even have their IPv6 allocations already. But since a single site assignment in IPv6 contains 1 trillion, trillion, addresses (or 279 trillion Internets!), designing an effective plan can be both intimidating and unnecessarily time consuming. With that many addresses, where do you start? Join us for this webinar as Tom Coffeen, Infoblox IPv6 evangelist and O'Reilly author of IPv6 Address Planning, discusses how to design, deploy, and successfully adopt an effective IPv6 addressing plan. Both IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 adoption are real and happening now. Take the first step to realizing an effective IPv6 address plan and adoption strategy, and watch this webinar today.

  • Sustainable Data Centres? A recipe for ICT, power and cooling solutions Apr 28 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Prof. Ian Bitterlin, CTO, Emerson
    True sustainability is achieved in three discrete steps - Firstly Reduction of Consumption, secondly Minimisation of Losses and, finally, Power from Renewable Sources. All of these are possible in modern data centre design but come with some increased risks. These risks may be more perceived than real but we have to accept that the primary purpose of a data centre is not to save the user energy but to provide reliable digital services that meet their business case. The users risk profile comes at the top of the design wish list.

    Join Prof. Ian Bitterlin for this presentation as he shows how a sustainable design can be forged for a user with a low appetite for risk and a high appetite for risk with the rewards that accompany it.

  • Going Hybrid: The First Step to Your Enterprise Cloud Journey. Recorded: Mar 19 2015 45 mins
    Eric Sansonny – General Manager
    The Public Cloud is very useful when high flexibility is needed in terms of allocation and de-allocation of resources, it allows an easily and fast scalability of horizontal architectures while it could be limited when there is the necessity of complex multi-level architectures.

    The Private Cloud is more enterprise oriented; as it allows the creation of complex architectures, providing tools in order to easy manage the network, the storage and specific VM configurations at hardware level. The user will have a Virtual Data Center that implements all the abstractions designed to simulate the behavior of a physical environment.

    It is also possible to configure network architectures involving multi-level services firewalling , load balancing , routed or isolated network, VPN profiles and to have different storage in terms of performance based on specific needs (for example, it will be possible have a database on pure SSD space, or long term archive space based on SATA disks).

    Join this presentation as Eric Sansonny will explain all of the above, and how to use a VPN IPSec to create a hybrid environment.
