Everything you wanted to know about virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) but were afraid to ask..
Presented by Rachel Chalmers, Research Director at the 451 Group and Dana Loof, EVP Marketing at Pano Logic, this webcast won’t turn you into a thrilling conversationalist at dinner parties (trust us on this one) but it may illicit feelings of smug confidence in front of your IT peer group.
Join us as we consider the 5 key VDI decision points:-
1. Is a virtual desktop deployment right for you?
2. If you decide to deploy, what are the critical initial steps?
3. How do you evaluate your VDI options - what’s right for you?
4. Which platform should you select?
5. What are the key success criteria?
At the conclusion of the webcast participants will have a clear understanding of what it means to deploy a virtualized desktop environment and understand some of the areas to consider when making IT investment decisions.
Disclaimer: Do not use heavy machinery when discussing VDI.
A short video montage where a diverse group of organizations - from a brewery to a medical center - who have deployed desktop virtualization discuss their experiences both in terms of the actual installation of the solution and the day to day user experience.
The industry was surprised when Dell announced its intent to acquire EMC for $67 billion, the largest tech deal ever. Merging two large stagnate companies with very different cultures and high-level of overlap in products can pose significant challenges.

SD-WAN can dramatically reduce cost and increases the ability to rapidly bring new services online, connecting users to all types of applications, and speeding up time to market. But the idea of re-architecting the WAN can be daunting and the decision to adopt an SD-WAN solution can be a difficult one.
Join renowned network expert Ethan Banks, Co-Founder of Packet Pushers, and Rolf Muralt, VP Products Management SD-WAN at Silver Peak, in a webinar that discusses the SD-WAN market, lessons learned, and what features to be on the lookout for as you make your decision. They will discuss issues around technology selection and deployment, including:
· How a zero-touch, hybrid or SD-WAN can leverage multiple connectivity forms
· Ways to prioritize and route traffic across different connections
· Quality of Service (QoS), and how to maintain 100% uptime
· Best practices for transitioning with minimal impact on budget and resources
· Real customer examples that demonstrate different deployment stage and benefits
Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.
Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
•Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
•Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
•Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
•Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts
Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.
A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.
Join us for this informative webinar to learn how to upgrade your Tera1 PCoIP zero clients to new LG devices, receive 5 free zero clients with money back and feel good about recycling not only your zero clients but laptops, desktops, printers and hard drives.
• Earlier this year, LG Electronics USA, was recognized by the EPA on their dedication to increasing consumer awareness about the importance of third-party certified recycling through nationwide education and outreach efforts.
• According to the EPA, the positive environmental impact of LG’s responsible recycling is equal to taking 12,300 passenger cars off the road for a year or saving enough energy to power more than 8,000 U.S. homes for a year.
Guest speaker David Bernstein with Anything IT will explain the process to receive rebates on Tera1 zero clients and dispose of them in accordance with industry’s highest e-waste standards
Anything IT and LG will explain a simple, fast and easy approach to upgrade:
• Assess the value of your current obsolete devices (any brand and any quantity)
• Claim your rebate
• Get 5 free zero clients
• Logistics and Process to upgrade and replace
Most organizations making an investment in NetApp Filers count on the system to store user data and host virtual machine datastores from an environment like VMware. In addition these organizations want their NetApp systems to do more and be the repository for the next wave of unstructured data; data generated by machines. NetApp systems are busting at the seams, so these organizations are trying to decide what to do next.
To help you find out what to do next, join Storage Switzerland and Caringo for our live webinar and learn:
1. What are the modern unstructured data use cases
2. The challenges NetApp faces in addressing its customers’ issues
3. Other solutions; can all-flash or object storage solve these challenges
4. Making the move - how to migrate from NetApp to other systems
5. How to re-purpose, instead of replacing your NetApp
