  • Why you need to stop copying data forever.
    Why you need to stop copying data forever. Marc Keating, Director of Technology & Alliance Strategy; Darren Miller, Manager of Engineering Test & Performance Recorded: Nov 16 2017 56 mins
    Whether you keep your enterprise data in the cloud, on-prem or in a hybrid environment, chances are, you’re making more copies than you’d like to.
    Of course, you must meet data protection requirements. Unfortunately, what sounds like a two-step process – store the data and back it up – often multiplies into many more steps with many more copies. And every time you duplicate your data, you increase your costs.

    In this webcast, we’ll look at why this is and what your options are to stop copying data and start accessing it.
  • Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos
    Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos Storage Switzerland, Nexsan Recorded: Nov 16 2017 51 mins
    As an organization grows the number of use cases the data center needs to support increases with it. What starts out as a NAS for file sharing, moves to a SAN for database applications, and then storage for data protection. As the organization hits full stride it might look at arching to limit growth and a mobility solution to support a distributed workforce. The problem is each one of these storage types are silo’ed and have to be implemented, operated and maintained separately. As a result, storage ends up consuming a large chunk of the IT budget.

  • Get Total Visibility into Microsoft IT Services through a Single Pane of Glass
    Get Total Visibility into Microsoft IT Services through a Single Pane of Glass John Worthington, Product Management Director, eG Innovations Recorded: Nov 15 2017 49 mins
    Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) allows system and application administrators to monitor operations, services, devices and applications within an enterprise through a single console. This single pane of glass can simplify operations, but monitoring the performance of end-to-end digital business services requires more than aggregating measurement data using multiple management packs.

    From a performance management perspective, unified monitoring is most effective when there’s a single source of actionable truth; it moves us away from diagnosis-related activities and toward collaborating on how to establish self-healing properties when that diagnosis is identified. Not only is this more cost-effective, it’s a more “unifying” activity than troubleshooting.

    A single pane of glass without an understanding of end-to-end IT service dependencies may just lead to more alert fatigue-- little actionable information due to lack of effective correlation and root cause diagnosis. The results are long problem isolation and diagnosis cycles, resulting in poor user experience and increased IT operation costs.

    Join us for this webinar as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG Innovations, demonstrates how you can achieve end-to-end performance monitoring of Microsoft IT services such as SharePoint, Exchange or custom .Net applications--even if those IT services incorporate non-Microsoft components or cloud services—and unify Microsoft SCOM at the same time.

  • Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud
    Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud Emily Storino, Network Strategy Lead, Electronic Arts (EA) Recorded: Nov 15 2017 61 mins
    Ad fraud isn’t becoming more prevalent -- the fraudsters are just getting slicker. From bot nets to device ID spoofing, the tricks are getting more sophisticated, and raking in more and more cash for the swindlers.

    Staying ahead of the fraudster’s learning curve is the key — and collaboration is the crucial element. While vendors and advertisers are directly impacted by fraud, tracking partners provide the technology to help fight fraud – all three players have to work together to circle the wagons.

    Making a game plan can be complex, when there are no clear benchmarks for defining or measuring fraud, as each player defines it differently and different benchmarks are needed for each app type, geo, traffic source, and so on.

    Join this VB Live event to learn how to tackle that complexity, how to define benchmarks, detect and manage fraud, and work with your partners to circle the wagons against the fraudsters.

    Register for free!

    You’ll learn:
    * Who the stakeholders are, plus why and how is each is affected
    * The MMPs’ role in this ecosystem
    * What fraud is and what benchmarks should be used for defining it
    * How to collaborate to detect and manage fraud on an ongoing basis
    * What tools are out there to fight fraud

  • How to Create A Two Tier Enterprise With All-Flash and Object Storage
    How to Create A Two Tier Enterprise With All-Flash and Object Storage Storage Switzerland, Tegile Systems Recorded: Nov 9 2017 54 mins
    The only problem with the all-flash data center is most of the data (as much as 85%) organizations store is not accessed in more than a year. Assuming there is a more cost effective way to store that data it should be stored on something else. Object storage seems like an obvious choice. Object storage is very cost effective and has features designed for long-term retention. Instead of a single-tier data center, organizations should look to create a two-tier enterprise, and in this webinar we will show you how.
