  • Every operator knows that, to provide the service levels today’s customers expect, they need to improve reliability and availability while reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

    The only question is: How?

    Could a power infrastructure and system architecture that maximizes asset utilization, optimizes energy efficiency and simultaneously achieves best-in-class reliability, be the answer?

    Join Paul Smith of GE Energy Management as he explores the pros and cons of different power architectures, considers some alternative energy sources and reveals how to:

    • Improve both server up-time AND customer service
    • Recapture valuable floor space and reduce capital replacement costs
    • Slash OPEX and save $millions in TCO with as little as 1% gain in power efficiency.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 is on its way to the market. It includes a number of new features and enhancements – while continuing to provide the stability, reliability, and security required to meet the demands of both modern data centers and next-generation IT environments. A focus on security, system administration and manageability, as well as a continued emphasis on the functionality to build and deploy Linux containers, helps Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 to provide enterprises with a trusted path forward.

    George Drapeau will walk through the main points in the RHEL 7.2 release, the Intel features that can be found in the release and touch on linkages to other Red Hat products in its infrastructure software portfolio, including the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform (RHEL-OSP) products.
  • The DCD team looks at the most interesting data centers announced last week
    - Nuclear energy for data centers
    - HostDime's seven story data center in Orlando
    - Google buys solar panel from Duke Energy
    - HPE announces it will resell Microsogt's Azure cloud.

  • We're seeing a massive shift in cyber security activity from internal threats to organised gangs and targeted state sponsored activities. Recent news items suggest there is an overwhelming need for organisations to understand their "Situational Awareness".

    In this webinar, (ISC)² and IBM will explore what to expect in 2016, focusing on the following key questions:

    - How do organisations understand what threats are real?
    - How much risk appetite do boards have in this complex, mobile, interconnected near real-time world?
    - As more and more devices are connecting to an ever-increasing number of communication channels, how do you ensure you can protect, prevent and respond to cyber security issues, yet provide a transparent easy to use multi-channel experience?

  • Onze pre-sales consultants laten door middel van een demo zien hoe je ervoor kunt zorgen dat alleen die delen van een profiel worden opgestart die een gebruiker op dat moment nodig heeft, zodat inlogtijden flink worden ingekort. Ook laten ze zien waarom het beter is om persoonlijke instellingen op applicatieniveau te streamen en beheren. De grootte van het gebruikersprofiel wordt hierdoor namelijk kleiner en profielgegevens kunnen onafhankelijk worden beheerd waardoor applicaties eenvoudig kunnen worden geupgrade zonder dat de gebruiker daar iets van merkt.
  • This week on White Space, we look back at the news from DCD Converged conference in London. We’ve also brought back a special guest - Cole Crawford, CEO of Vapor IO and purveyor of unusual rack arrangements.

    We discuss various ways to reuse server heat and discover that Coca Cola is apparently using Internet of Things to develop new flavors of the sugary drink.

    Peter looks at the reasons behind the Telecity outage in the UK - but this outage has nothing on the recent data center fire in Azerbaijan, that left almost the entire country without access to the Internet.

    Also mentioned are the news about CA Technologies getting out of the DCIM business, the reinvention of liquid cooling company Iceotope and the fact that the US government has just discovered another 2000 data centers it didn’t know it had.
  • Did you know that 80-100% of serious security breaches involve privileged account misuse or compromise?
    This, in large part, is due to the fact that enterprises are becoming more complex with an increasing number of users and devices needing network access to privileged accounts. In many cases, advanced attackers are focused on achieving domain administrator privileges because of the unrestricted access and control these credentials have in the IT landscape.

    Join (ISC)² and CyberArk in this webinar where we’ll discuss and demonstrate:

    -vulnerabilities posed by unsecured privileged accounts
    - the state of cyber security and attacker motivations
    - lateral movement techniques - using real-world data - that enable an attacker to take over a network
    - the expanding threat landscape posed by complex IT environments
  • Wireless is now the expected medium of choice for network users. Delivering it successfully can be a challenge especially with multiple different approaches and architectures available. What is right for your organisation? Cloud? Controller? How is it all secured?

    This session will discuss 3 main Wi-Fi architecture types, their different advantages, the wired edge, and how to secure it all. Importantly, we will finish with what to consider when making the right choice for your needs.
  • IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.
  • Analysts have been advising for many years that all businesses are becoming software businesses and one of the key software platforms that organisations invest in to support this is SAP's Enterprise Solutions. With this transformation, the availability of these mission-critical enterprise services increases every day.

    During this webinar, you can learn how:

    • SAP and SUSE have collaborated for 16 years to make Linux the preferred operating system upon which SAP applications run.

    • SUSE can help you unleash the power of Open Source whilst providing the most performant and resilient platform available for your SAP applications

    • Highly-Available SAP HANA, the core of SAP's next generation business suite S4/HANA, is ONLY available on SUSE Linux

    One of SUSE’s Platinum Partners – Securelinx – who specialise in the deployment, configuration and support of Linux, are sponsoring this webinar.
