    • The end of the iron age: Building a private cloud infrastructure
      The end of the iron age: Building a private cloud infrastructure Julio Villarreal Pelegrino, Sr. Principal Consulting Architect, Red Hat and Stephane Lefrere, Director, Cloud Infrastructure Recorded: Dec 5 2018 7:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • It’s no secret that IT leaders have many factors to consider when choosing the right infrastructure for the business. Organizations are often bogged down by security policies, budgets, and compliance requirements, as well as expanding workloads that require additional support. Private infrastructure is often considered when businesses inevitably reach the limits of their hard-wired and virtual infrastructures. But, implementing a private cloud infrastructure can be a daunting task.

      In this webinar, we’ll discuss the keys to successfully embarking on a private cloud journey and the benefits of creating a secure, modern infrastructure.

      Topics in this session include:
      - How organizations are using existing services and resources while transitioning to the cloud.
      - How you can use infrastructure-as-code concepts to provide self-service and automation for increased productivity and agility while reducing costs.
      - What a typical private and hybrid cloud journey looks like and how it might modify your organization IT’s landscape

    • Does Hyper-Converged Infrastructure live up to the Hype?
      Does Hyper-Converged Infrastructure live up to the Hype? Andrew Scott, Global DC Manager, GKN PLC Recorded: Feb 13 2018 11:00 am UTC 40 mins
    • This is the story of why one enterprise chose HCI and how the hype stacked up in their real world.

      ‘Cloud’ is a marketing term used to groups many offerings things that differ quite a bit from each other. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a little more specific than Cloud, but companies still find it has the same potential to be confusing and ambiguous. There are many different players in the market, each with their own view on why what they deliver is the real HCI.

      Andrew Scott runs in house data centers for a large automotive engineering company. He and his team spent a fair amount of time working out the real benefits HCI brought and then, which of the many vendors should be shortlisted to test. They implemented HCI in 2017, this is some of what they learned along the way.

    • IDC Report: ROI Data Analysis of Converged Infrastructure
      IDC Report: ROI Data Analysis of Converged Infrastructure Eric Sheppard, Research Director - IDC Storage, Bob Madaio, VP - Infrastructure Solutions, Hitachi Data Systems Recorded: Jan 12 2017 4:45 pm UTC 53 mins
    • Have you considered a move to converged infrastructure, but need to be convinced with solid return on investment (ROI) data? Respected industry analyst IDC interviewed global enterprises that use and rely on Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) to calculate its true business value. IDC found that each organization using this converged infrastructure earned an average return of 360% or about $32.7 million over a five-year period.

      The comprehensive independent analysis includes a breakdown of business benefits in four key areas and shows how a unified compute platform:

      •Increases business productivity with improved application performance, reduced provision time and faster time to market.
      •Improves risk mitigation and user productivity with a high level of resiliency, performance and efficiency.
      •Boosts IT staff productivity with decreased IT time to set up new infrastructure and launch new applications.
      •Reduces IT infrastructure costs for the provision and deployment of compute, storage and networking resources.

    • 2017 Trends in Infrastructure
      2017 Trends in Infrastructure Al Sadowski, Research Vice President - Infrastructure Recorded: Jan 19 2017 4:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Enterprises and service provider customers have more storage, networking, and cloud technology choices at their disposal than ever before, and aggressive technology adopters will gain a performance and agility edge over their rivals in 2017. All Flash Arrays, Object Storage and Disaster Recovery to Cloud/Disaster Recovery as a Service are key technologies transforming the storage landscape. These new innovations account for a relatively small amount of storage revenue today, but will gradually displace traditional disk based storage systems, ultimately opening up opportunities for new innovators. The pace of change in networking technology provides the speed, capacity and agility demanded by cloud, IoT, social media, content delivery and the fabric that makes digital transformation possible.

      Join Al Sadowski, Research Vice President for Infrastructure, as he dives into what’s accelerating the virtualization of network applications and how traditional vendors will need to transform their “innovation supply chain” to produce product equivalents to highly scalable cloud infrastructure.
