At the recent Cisco Live event in Berlin, one of the most frequent questions we were asked was ‘How do I embrace to multi-speed IT?’. With traditional IT teams struggling to manage reduced budgets and a lack of time, multi-speed IT better equips you to meet the demands of the business and boost the competitiveness of your organisation. This joint webinar from Cisco and Commvault will explore:
•The benefits: Why multi-speed IT is important
•Building a Platform for Multi-speed IT
•Considerations for Data & Applications
•How transformation can pay for itself
By boosting your team's your agility, funds can flow from Lines of Business that might ordinarily go elsewhere, so this is a session you should not miss. If you’re about to embark on this journey or looking for new ideas to enhance your transformation, Cisco and Commvault can help.
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

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.

To increase agility, drive workforce productivity and better support customers’, business is demanding the delivery of new innovative applications, including collaboration, video, VDI and everything cloud. All this, however, must be achieved with flat budgets and without introducing additional risk. This is the “New Normal” for IT.
To reduce data center costs and speed service delivery, organizations are adopting converged infrastructure platforms like Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), while readying the network with the capabilities and capacity needed to deliver dynamic services. Doing this effectively not only requires performance visibility to maintain uptime, but also better insights into where new technology infrastructure will be most effective for the business.
On June 6th, together with Enterprise Management Associates, we’ll discuss the transformative trends and technologies shaping IT and business today. We’ll also show how CA Technologies and Cisco are working together to help our customers accelerate innovation by cost effectively ensuring quality-of-service and an optimum customer experience – especially for new applications hosted in unified datacenter and delivered across a truly borderless network. During this session you’ll gain valuable insights into how organizations can:
• Leverage Cisco UCS platforms to better support the delivery of new virtualized cloud services the business is demanding
• Maintain and exceed service levels, manage performance and ensure Cisco UCS compute power is there when the business needs it
• Proactively manage the performance of tier 1 applications, virtualized services and infrastructure to increase ROI and accelerate time-to-value of Cisco investments
• Deliver real-time visibility and historical analysis into bandwidth consumption and application response times to drive business performance improvements
• Provide extensible, value-added services including voice and video quality-of-experience management
