Processing near real-time analytics from big data is a goal for any data scientist. As Hadoop, SPARK and other processing solutions ingest more and more data, it is critically important to maintain low latencies.
Learn how to accelerate Big Data analysis by combining existing Hadoop Distributed File System (or other data processing solutions) with IBM Spectrum Scale software on the SanDisk InfiniFlash System. In this webinar, Doug O'flaherty of IBM and Shailesh Manjrekar of SanDisk will show you how this joint solution delivers a faster, cost-effective and operationally efficient way to process and analyze your data.
In this webinar we’ll cover:
- The evolution of HDFS. Problems solved and new problems created
- Comparing Disk vs. Flash options
- Advantages of IBM Spectrum Scale
- Adding Federation
- Configuration and Use-Case Example
Angiogenesis is the process by which a new blood supply is established from pre-existing blood vessels. It is initiated by degradation of vessel basement membrane, endothelial cell proliferation, invasion, and directional migration towards chemoattractants, tube formation, and finally the establishment of a new vasculature.
We will discuss a portfolio of Corning products designed to investigate specific stages of angiogenesis through standardized and quantitative in vitro cell-based assays.
•HUVEC-2 Endothelial Cells—Widely studied endothelial cells that have been pre-screened for responsiveness to VEGF, a prototypic stimulator of angiogenesis
•ECMs and Chemoattractants—ECMs and key pro-angiogenic chemoattractants for optimal EC propagation, attachment, differentiation, and other key functions
•Endothelial Cell Invasion and Migration Assays—An enabling platform technology consisting of Corning® FluoroBlok™ microporous permeable supports coated with our unique extracellular matrix proteins for quantitation of endothelial cell migration and invasion
•Endothelia Cell Tube Formation Assay—A rapid assay system allowing direct screening of angiogenic compounds for their effects on endothelial cell tube formation

June 7, 2012, the Federal Reserve released its long-awaited Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) on bank capital requirements. The effect of those will be:
• Traditional DRD/QDI-eligible Preferred stock would be eligible Tier 1 Capital;
• Trust preferred securities (TruPS) would not be eligible;
• Banks would maintain higher levels of common equity to support preferred and debt holders; and
• Banks have begun and will continue to refinance their outstanding TruPS with traditional tax-advantaged preferred stock.
Hear from the longest tenured preferred manager in the industry, Flaherty & Crumrine about what opportunities this may hold for you and your clients in the new year.
Seminar topics will include:
* Immigration considerations for starting a business in the U.S.
* Visa options for essential personnel

The vast majority of cyber-attacks on business begin with a phishing email, tailored to deceive an unsuspecting employee into clicking on a link or attachment containing malware. Do you have a strategy to defend against these attacks? Does it involve stopping malware before it enters your network? In this webcast, we’ll discuss how advanced malware detection technologies can detect and eliminate advanced malware in-line with traffic, before it has a chance to deliver its payload and attempt to steal your sensitive information.
In this webinar:
• You will learn about the multiple infiltration mechanisms used by cybercriminals in phishing attacks
• You will see how advanced malware detection engines can detect these attacks
• You will walk away with an understanding of how advanced malware detection technologies fit into a connected security infrastructure
Don’t miss this webcast if you are responsible for the security of your organization’s sensitive information. We will cover the latest in advanced malware detection for a critical element of your security practice – email traffic – and how this technology fits into the larger picture of defence against malware.
Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, Advanced Anti-Malware, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.
Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it.
McAfee Email Protection goes beyond anti-spam to deliver an integrated email security solution with threat defense, information protection (encryption and data loss prevention), and email continuity capabilities to ensure email access — even during server outages. With flexible deployment options (onsite, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both), customers can deploy what they need now and have the flexibility for future changes.
Join this webinar and hear the latest on how to sell McAfee Email Protection; including how to qualify an opportunity, handle customer objections and counter the competition. Learn about the enablement, profitability and demand generation resources available to help you increase your revenue selling McAfee’s Email Protection.
Does your organization have sensitive information to protect? What would happen if an employee clicked on a link within an email, and malware infected one, or many, of your internal systems? Do you have the resources to recover if customer data or intellectual property is stolen? These are all key considerations when building your defence strategy against targeted attacks. This webinar will cover the tactics that can be used to stop targeted attacks before they infiltrate your organization.
Join this webinar on McAfee email Protection as:
•You will learn how to cost-effectively establish front-line defence against targeted attacks
•You will hear about the leading technologies that are becoming instrumental in stopping the most advanced malware
•You will walk away with a blueprint for your business to prepare for and defend against evolving targeted attacks
Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?
Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
Join this webinar as:
•You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
•You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
•You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security

In this webinar for sales and marketing, join us for a discussion on the steps you should consider to implement the new B2B Next Generation Demand Waterfall® that Kerry Cunningham and Terry Flaherty covered in this year’s SiriusDecisions Summit keynote.
• How to identify Total Addressable Market
• How to find Total Addressable Market Now (TAMnow®)
•How to execute on a TAM NOW, account-centric approach to demand creation; full funnel activation from brand to demand to closed-won
