DDoS attacks are rising in size, frequency and complexity; recent research from Arbor Networks discovered a 334 Gbps DDoS attack! What makes this concerning is that there isn’t a single DDoS protection product on the planet that can stop an attack of this magnitude. So what’s the solution? You need to leverage your network to stop DDoS attacks.
In this session, representatives from two industry leaders – Talbot Hack from Arbor Networks and Mike Geller from Cisco Systems – discuss best practices in leveraging your network for DDoS detection and mitigation.
This presentation will cover:
-The use of current and emerging technologies such as, Netflow, BGP, Flowspec, S&D/RTBH and SDN/NFV
-An introduction to a joint Arbor-Cisco solution which embeds Arbor’s Threat Management System (TMS) technology in the Cisco’s ASR 9000 router for network embedded, virtual DDoS protection

Many organizations are looking to virtual desktops and apps to improve productivity, security, and control — but building infrastructure for large-scale Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp deployments can be challenging. While some infrastructure approaches are limited in reliability or ability to scale, this session will present a highly performant, highly available and easy to manage approach to Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp deployments with the FlashStack Converged Infrastructure from Cisco and Pure Storage. In this session, Cisco and Pure Storage VDI solution architects will share test results of a recent Cisco Validated Design for FlashStack with XenDesktop and XenApp for 5000 users. Specifically discussed is how real world users can quickly deploy Citrix virtual apps and desktops, scale performance with user demand, and keep costs low through a repeatable, reliable converged infrastructure approach to VDI. This is also the first FlashStack CVD using Windows® 10 64-bit and Office® 2016 as the base OS desktop and Office Suite, respectively, proving that FlashStack delivers the horsepower needed to power the latest innovations from Microsoft.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
Successfully deploy Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp at scale faster to support high-productivity user workspaces

Molina Health, a fast-growing Fortune 500 company, will describe how they transformed their IT organization as they evolved their data center with VCE Vblock systems (based on the Cisco UCS platform) to provide cloud-based business services to employees and customers. Their case study illustrates convergence within data centers to enable IT agility for business growth, yet requires new, tightly integrated, converged infrastructure management processes and tools.
Experts for leading technology vendors Cisco and CA Technologies and well-respected analyst firm EMA will outline data center evolution driven by Cisco UCS-based platforms, best practices and new CA tools for managing them and the business services they support. Related mega-trends in converged infrastructure and IT management will be referenced.
Converged Infrastructure solutions sound great on paper, but what happens in real life in an enterprise deployment? Can CI designs deliver enterprise performance, resilience, scalability AND management simplicity? How can you provide awesome end-user experience without breaking the bank? Talk to Cisco and Pure architects as well as customers on how FlashStack is able to address the most critical success factors with a tested and validated 5,000 seat desktop virtualization architecture.
What we’ll answer:
How is VDI now able to deliver virtualized desktops to nearly all users in an enterprise? How do I break through performance barriers needed to provide end-user experience better than physical desktops? Isn’t the cost of all-flash storage going to blow my budget? If I’m supporting thousands of users on VDI, how do I keep up with management and support overhead of so many users? What architecture considerations and best practices should I keep in mind for large scale VDI? Is dedicated infrastructure a requirement for VDI? Hear from not only Pure and Cisco architects, but customers who have architected successful enterprise VDI deployments.
