Welcome to the virtualization community on BrightTALK! Whether it affects servers, storage, networks, desktops or other parts of the data center, virtualization provides real benefits by reducing the resources needed for your
infrastructure and creating software-defined data center components. However, it can also complicate your infrastructure. Join this active community to learn best
practices for avoiding virtual machine sprawl and other common virtualization pitfalls as well as how you can make the most of your virtualization environment.
"Every service provider today has investment heavily in physical networking equipment. All their customers are all connected over the legacy network in one way or another. In order to maximize the ROI, there must be a simple and quick way to orchestrate new services using new network functions virtualizations (NFV) technology on top of the old network.
This live demonstration will showcase how this can be done, using the service orchestration, automation and activation capabilities of PacketFront Software’s BECS platform integrated towards an open source platform consisting of OPNFV, OpenDaylight and OpenStack."

Cyber-crime won’t slow down. Take this opportunity to learn from the recent past as you deal with current threats and prepare for whatever’s next.
In the space of storing, managing and protecting data, different approaches for handling information are used. The advent of cloud has brought in compelling benefits, but the amount of data that organizations continue to store is growing exponentially, resulting in mostly unrelated solutions that have lead to the rise of Hybrid IT. On the Data Protection side, Businesses increasingly demand 100% uptime with no data loss, or what IDC refers to as the "new race to zero" – 0 RPO and 0 RTO. Such scenarios are still unrealistic for all but the most expensive and demanding applications that can afford fully redundant systems.
IT organizations are improving the performance of their storage stacks and gradually driving down their RPO and RTO. Unfortunately, in most cases, this requires a complex strategy of interrelated components, which are often vendor and platform-specific, leaving IT to manually manage multiple systems and increasing the overall complexity of their environments.
Join this session to learn about:
- The latest advances in converging your storage and backup stack and how this can radically change the way you manage data
- The current challenges of copy data management and how to address them
- A dive into a TCO study depicting the savings achieved through this architectural change
- Why snapshots are obsolete and you to achieve near-instant data recovery
- A look into additional use cases of copy data for DevOps team
The technology advances presented in this session were recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the award for Technology Innovation for Data Storage and Management.
Join us for a 360 view from our Industry Expert, Jacob Cherian, VP of Product Strategy at Reduxio and previously Dell Inventor of the Year, as well as a Fireside chat with a Keith Worthington, IT Manager at LineMaster of the technology being presented.

You have multiple physical data centers, all presenting hardware, software, networking and management challenges. You’re making several copies of your data, and the petabytes are adding up. You need to tune into this webinar. We’ll share the two fastest ways forward on consolidation.
Most security information and event management (SIEM) customers are struggling to achieve meaningful success a year or more after initial deployment. This is especially true with mid-market companies, where shrinking IT security budgets and shortage of skilled cyber security resources have forced them to reconsider investing in a SIEM, and seriously look at managed security services options.
Before CIOs/CISOs take a leap of faith into any kind of managed security service, they want to be able to measure ROI with an outsourced managed solution, as opposed to managing their own SIEM. In this webinar, hear from security experts on:
- What does it take to build and manage your own SIEM in-house?
- What security SIEM blind spots can you avoid with a managed security service?
- How do you determine ROI of a managed service as compared to a SIEM?
Our discussion will explore the forcing functions of digital transformation on today’s traditional data center as it expands into cloud environments and the security challenges that result. A key to digital transformation success is having IT at the digital table. We’ll discuss technologies such as automation, API and IoT gateways, and the security services you’ll need to be successful.
Join Storage Switzerland and Micro Focus for an interactive live webinar where we will discuss the key disruptors in the market that could impact your data protection plan and what you need to consider to avoid them.
Understand the key 5 trends and their implications on your data center:
●The Shift to Hybrid IT
●Ransomware and other Cyber Threats
●The Proliferation of Mission Critical Applications
●Cloud Storage and Cloud Applications
●The Rise of Remote Office Computing (ROBO)
Virtualizing data center infrastructure has reduced server sprawl, and improved provisioning, scalability and TCO. However, it’s come with increased complexity in managing across the infrastructure stack. To address this, IT orgs are turning to automation. VMware vRealize Orchestrator and VMware vRealize Automation let you: easily provision virtual and physical servers, software, networking and storage; develop composite workflows to speed complex infrastructure provisioning; and create customized environments for dev/test. This webinar covers technical details of these products and includes a demonstration of how to start a VMware Private Cloud by automating Storage Provisioning tasks using the new vRealize Orchestrator plugin for HPE 3PAR Storeserv and vRealize Automation.
The terms SDN (Software-Defined Network) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization) are on many agendas right now, but what does network virtualization really mean in practical terms for the data center environment?
In this session we will discuss your move to the cloud, including how to:
•Speed time to market: Embracing new technologies to quickly deploy new services or turn on new sites.
•Become more agile: Leveraging application enablement to facilitate agile business processes and help customers connect to multiple clouds/CSPs.
•Manage costs: Consolidating your rack to free up space and control costs.
•Enhance the customer experience: Improving application performance and limiting downtime from outages.
IT Transformation projects are usually driven by the need to reduce complexity, improve agility, simplify systems, contain costs, manage ever growing data and provide more efficient operational management. Arguably, for seasoned IT professionals there is nothing new about the drivers for transformational change; it’s the velocity and scale of transformation today that’s the big challenge.
Today, to effectively accelerate business innovation, successful IT leaders are building infrastructure that focuses on automation and flexibility, supporting agile application development and helping deliver world-class customer experience. Of course, IT teams are still under pressure to deliver legacy, mission-critical applications but they also need to support a seemingly constant flow of emerging business opportunities. They’re also tasked to lower costs, reduce Capex, while helping to drive revenue growth. That’s a lot of drivers and this complex juggling act often requires modernising infrastructure. An almost inevitable result of this is that the mix of platforms they adopt will include public cloud.
So, does that signal the end of the corporate data centre as we know it? Well, as is so often the answer – yes and no. ‘Yes’ because there is no doubt that the complexity and cost of building and managing on-premise infrastructures is becoming increasingly unsustainable for many businesses. And ‘no’ because business continuity and stability of legacy applications are still, quite rightly, primary drivers today. But the corporate data centre may well now be a service provider’s data centre...
The inevitable march to the cloud has begun and Hybrid Cloud is a huge milestone in that journey. It’s easy to use on-prem infrastructure and public cloud in parallel for your workloads, but a lot of friction occurs when these two worlds come together. High Availability, security, and interoperability are just a few. Demand for Data Sovereignty and GDPR throws another wrench into the mix. Storage solutions need to keep up with evolving demands and SDS will play a huge part in making Hybrid Cloud a reality.
In this session we'll look at:
- Common pitfalls when building or transitioning to a Hybrid Cloud infrastructure
- The effect of different use cases on Hybrid Cloud implementation
- The future of Hybrid Cloud and how to get there
Achieving a single pane of glass for performance management has been an elusive goal, as organizations are faced with an increasingly complex mix of legacy, virtual and cloud technologies, as well as emerging operating models and evolving roles/skillsets.
But, monitoring the performance of digital business services demands more than visibility to just the end user experience, applications, or the underlying infrastructure. It requires an ability to automatically anticipate and isolate performance issues across a heterogeneous mix of technologies, devices and suppliers.
Digital business services are how end users experience IT, and that is how IT services must be managed. Achieving unified performance management will continue to be elusive until all stakeholders are aligned with this approach.
Join this webinar, as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG innovations, details some best practices for achieving the single pane of glass vision. Attendees will receive the related White Paper, "Best Practices for Achieving Transparency in Digital Business Services Monitoring".
In this webinar, you will:
-Learn how monitoring can be leveraged in continuous improvement and other transformative change programs
-See how converged APM/IPM can accelerate achievement of a single point of glass for performance monitoring
-Identify some best practices you can apply for achieving unified monitoring and improving organizational transparency

Although most of today’s enterprises are data-aware, this may not be sufficient to drive tangible business outcomes.
- Are your data-driven applications providing contextual and actionable insight?
- Are you deriving insights from all the enterprise data?
Embrace Forrester’s latest analytical framework for insights-driven businesses: Systems of Insight (SOI).
Join this session to discover the key principles that differentiate data-aware or data-driven businesses from their insights-driven peers and competitors. The session will explore the roles that data virtualization (aka Data Fabric) plays in modern SOI architectures, such as:
- A single virtual catalog / view on all enterprise data sources including data lakes.
- A more agile and flexible virtual enterprise data warehouse.
- A common semantic layer for business intelligence (BI) and analytical applications (aka BI Fabric).
95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,
The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.
During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:
-2018 Global Cloud Data Security Findings
-Compliance and cloud security: How will this work?
-A shift in the budget: Where is IT spending their money?
-Country breakdown of IT cloud security: Who is doing the best?
-What can you do to secure the cloud and comply with regulations?

The dynamic world we live in today drives precise, real time operations that elevates the need for Real Time Operating Systems. These needs are fueled by advances in the automotive sector, the Internet of Things, advanced robotics, healthcare, the industrial sector, military and defense, aerospace and telecommunications.
This webinar will take a look at the market and describe use cases that are driving the growth of real time enterprises. From synchronized execution of latency-sensitive workloads to predictable response times and task prioritization, optimized applications are requiring that enterprise infrastructures be built with precision and predictability in mind.
5G brings many new capabilities over 4G including higher bandwidths, lower latencies, and more efficient use of radio spectrum. However, these improvements require a large increase in computing power in the base station. Fortunately the Xeon Scalable Processor series (Skylake-SP) recently introduced by Intel has a new high-performance instruction set called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) which is capable of delivering the compute needed to support the exciting new world of 5G.
In his talk Daniel will give an overview of the new capabilities of the Intel AVX-512 instruction set and show why they are so beneficial to supporting 5G efficiently. The most obvious difference is that Intel AVX-512 has double the compute performance of previous generations of instruction sets. Perhaps surprisingly though it is the addition of brand new instructions that can make the biggest improvements. The new instructions mean that software algorithms can become more efficient, thereby enabling even more effective use of the improvements in computing performance and leading to very high performance 5G NR software implementations.
Performance testing is more relevant than ever. It’s even more prominent in the software development life cycle than in the past. What’s changed is that development and testing teams now can test component level performance earlier than ever with tools such as Service Virtualization.
It’s now easier to identify and fix performance-related issues as they are being worked much earlier than before, when performance testing was done during a formal performance testing cycle in the stage environment after multiple code builds have hidden those issues deeper across several application layers.
This session will cover the basics of how to shift performance testing left so that development and testing teams can test component level performance using CA Service Virtualization and CA BlazeMeter.
