  • How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience
    How to “Future Proof” Data Protection for Organizational Resilience Storage Switzerland, Carbonite Recorded: Apr 27 2017 61 mins
    Users expectations of IT's ability to return mission critical applications to production are higher than ever. These expectations are leading IT to abandon many of their backup and recovery solutions to try new, unproven solutions that may or may not solve the problem. In either case, the organization wasted its investment in the first solution for the unknown potential of a new solution. User expectations are certain to get higher, so this cycle will likely repeat itself. IT needs a new strategy, one that will meet the current expectations of users and pave the way for true organizational resilience.

  • Parallel Computing meets Parallel I/O
    Parallel Computing meets Parallel I/O Augie Gonzalez, Director Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Apr 26 2017 29 mins
    Many of us responsible for large scale OLTP systems confront two clashing phenomena:
    •Data comes at us at increasingly higher rates (from an expanding number of sources)
    •The time required to process and analyze those inputs is rapidly shrinking.

    Blame it on the Internet of Things (IoT)!

    Instinctively, we respond with two approaches. First, we search for hardware and software that speed up the process.
    Then, we try breaking up the problem into smaller parallel efforts.

    In this webinar you will learn to:
    •Look for choke points that get in the way of executing concurrent transactions
    (Hint: they hide where you don’t suspect)
    •Recognize the consequences those choke points have on competing workloads

  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.

    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Recorded: Apr 25 2017 48 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.

  • Advanced SD-WAN Monitoring and Management
    Advanced SD-WAN Monitoring and Management Jeremy Rossbach, Sr. Principal Product Marketing Manager and Jason Normandine Sr Principal Product Manager May 2 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How does SD-WAN shift the status quo for Operations teams? SD-WAN technology possesses sophisticated, in-built capability for operations and management, and advanced automation to address network problems in real-time. However, network operations teams need to seamlessly integrate this network and health status intelligence from their new SD-WAN infrastructure into their existing monitoring and management infrastructure. Additionally, monitoring solutions must provide visibility across all network architectures including highly dynamic and complex hybrid clouds and other SDN elements and should:
    - Eliminate visibility gaps between traditional networks and SD-WAN providing administrators with insights to optimize and transform their large hybrid networks
    - Provide relationship mapping of major IT events
    - Visualize physical and logical dependencies in applications and service chains
    - Extend visibility for operators with network performance monitoring across traditional, SDN, NFV, SDDC, SD-WAN, NFV and cloud networks (including service chains)
    - Enable operational insight into how all elements of traditional and overlay networks affect service integrity

  • What is Lossless Network Capture, and Why it’s Vital to Your Mission
    What is Lossless Network Capture, and Why it’s Vital to Your Mission Scott Schweitzer and Les Davis May 2 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s commonly said in packet capture that the one packet you miss is ALWAYS the most important packet. That’s why lossless network packet capture is a vital component in the security and performance of your mission. Today given the huge traffic volumes common in most missions it’s not surprising to learn that many monitoring tools never see a complete picture of what it is they’re really monitoring. It is challenging to launch a forensic investigation into a problem knowing that perhaps some pieces of the puzzle may be missing.

    Please join us to learn how lossless network packet capture from Solarflare can provide agencies with an effective means of natively enhancing the security, and performance of their mission systems and applications.

In this presentation we will go through some container basics, and then show what a container really is (and how container engines like Docker work) by writing a container in a few lines of code.

    Join our webinar in order to learn:
    •Containers basics
    •How a container engine uses namespaces and control groups to create containers
    •What makes containers so appealing to developers
  • Gain Visibility & Control of IT Assets in a Perimeterless World
    Gain Visibility & Control of IT Assets in a Perimeterless World Jimmy Graham, Director, Product Management, AssetView and Darron Gibbard, Chief Technical Security Officer EMEA, Qualys May 4 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In today’s perimeterless world, enterprise security teams are challenged with maintaining visibility and control over the exploding number of assets on their networks.

    The IT assets that pose the greatest risk to your organization’s security are the ones you don’t know are there. Lack of visibility into your IT environment undermines the foundations of your enterprise security and compliance infrastructure and puts your organization at serious risk of a breach. Without knowledge of which software and devices exist in your network — whether on-premises, on endpoints, or in elastic clouds — InfoSec professionals are unable to enact proper security and protection.

    During this webcast, Jimmy Graham, Director of Product Management for Qualys AssetView and Darron Gibbard, Chief Technical Security Officer for Qualys EMEA will cover the six key elements of an ideal cloud-based IT asset inventory system:

    1. Complete visibility of your IT environment
    2. Deep visibility into assets
    3. Continuous and automatic updates
    4. Asset criticality ranking
    5. Interactive, customizable dashboarding and reporting
    6. Integration with your CMDB


    Those of you in the EU will also be interested to learn about asset inventory for GDPR compliance.

    This webcast will include a live Q&A session.

  • Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access
    Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access Mor Ahuvia, Authentication Product Marketing at Gemalto May 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Cloud apps are being pulled into the enterprise hand-over-fist, with 93% of organizations using cloud-based IT services. But the efficiencies and convenience offered by cloud apps come at a price. While organizations have long been applying two-factor authentication to their network, VPN and email portals, they have failed to extend that same level of security to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

    But the need for stronger cloud access security is only part of the story. Businesses looking to scale and increase their cloud adoption find there are other issues to contend with. Visibility into cloud access events and regulatory compliance become challenging to maintain. Helpdesk staff are burdened with password resets, and the most important link in the chain—users—are plagued with password fatigue.

    This webinar explains:
    •Challenges to greater cloud adoption in the enterprise
    •What cloud access management is
    •How strong authentication complements access management
    •Why cloud access management is critical to an organization’s cloud adoption strategy

  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There
    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp May 9 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.
