Much has been made of technology trends in the enterprise, federal, and service provider markets, such as the adoption of Public and Private Cloud Services, BYOD, SDN, and Big Data. But how are these trends impacting traditional network performance monitoring strategies?
Join SevOne for a discussion of these trends and learn how you can:
- Maintain performance visibility in the face of new complexities
- Predict performance and capacity issues related to the deployment of new technologies
- Ensure your performance management platform meets future requirements
Description: As we plan for a world of 8 billion people and beyond, our knowledge of future human needs is surprisingly disparate. Project 8 was created by The UN Foundation and The Demand Institute in order to help the UN System and other public and private sector organizations anticipate and plan for future human needs.
With the support of Salesforce and Accenture, Project 8 is building a digital platform that will bring together researchers and practitioners to share, compare and discuss data and insights on the evolution of human demand. Using Salesforce Wave, researchers will make their insights more visible and useful to the rest of us and improve our collective ability to meet human needs globally.
Join us to learn about Project 8, and how Salesforce Wave can empower everyone in your organization to get insight.

Is environmental legislation getting in the way of you growing your business?
Do you believe Carbon management is just "greenwash" with no commercial benefits?
A panel of three experts including Lynn Forrester, the Environmental Sustainability Manager of Nationwide, will give you advice and answer YOUR questions, posed by Tim McManan-Smith of Water, Energy & Environment Magazine.
The latest release of the Data Plane Development Kit is 2.2, which was completed in December 2015 and is available for download from dpdk.org (http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk/tag/?id=v2.2.0).
This webinar describes the new features that are included in DPDK 2.2, including major changes such as:
• A new cryptodev API supporting both hardware and software acceleration for crypto
• A performance thread sample application comparing the performance of different threading approaches
• Support for the ARMv7 and ARMv8 architectures
• A sample application for an IEEE1588 PTP client
• Improved NIC support, including support for Mellanox, Liberouter and Netronome NICs, and enhancements for both I40E and FM10K
The webinar will also outline planned contributions from Intel to the next DPDK release, 16.04 (formerly referred to as 2.3), which is due to be completed in April 2016.
Join Rahul Shah, Sr. Product Marketing Manager of Emulex, for an informative webinar session that will focus on the advances in 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) networking for enterprise and private-hybrid cloud data centers.
IT admins are constantly challenged with maintaining or reducing operational and capital expenditures (OPEX & CAPEX) while delivering IT as a service with improved user experience. Networking plays a vital role in maximizing server investments by increase virtual machine (VM) density, accelerating applications performance and maximizing flexibility in VM placement. Emulex will discuss the first-to-market set of capabilities in their just-announced OneConnect™ OCe14000 10GbE NIC and CNA family of adapters fulfills these key IT objectives.
The employment tax status of workers can be difficult to establish. Where non compliance with the tax legislation arises, it is the NHS organisation, not the worker, that is exposed to additional PAYE and National Insurance Contributions ("NIC") as well as statutory interest and penalties. With increased HMRC activity in this area and the financial as well as the reputational risk non compliance brings, this session will look to share some of the areas PwC is seeing in practice as concern to HM Revenue & Customs ("HMRC"). This will include individuals engaged as self-employed, as office holders, through Personal Service Companies and agencies. The session will also look at the interaction with the additional HM Treasury annual requirements for reporting off payroll payments.Read more >
Frictionless access to information makes everyone think they can do this at home. But, in fact, deploying OpenStack on optimized hardware presents a hatful of challenges that your infrastructure team might not have thought about.
In this session, we'll look at a range of challenges that can stop your project before it makes it to deployment. The session is divided into two topics that we’ll dive into:
(a) Introduction to scalability techniques: clouds from a hardware perspective.
Building a large cloud is more than just throwing hardware into a hall and lighting it up. Network, storage, compute and scaling strategies must be designed in from the beginning. In the current state of the art of OpenStack, some decisions are easy to unwind later on and some are impossible. This portion of the presentation will focus on describing the steps you need to execute to build a successful cloud and which decisions you can push off to later.
(b) The second section of the session will focus on strategies to simplify the optimized hardware experience. If you’re assembling racks on onsite, you need a plan to deal with everything from cabling and airflow to the NIC firmware and drivers. Each of these details can delay your project and run up costs. We’ll also look at the trend toward scalable rack-level units that are factory integrated and tested.
Attendees will also learn about some of the simple things that are obvious with enterprise hardware but can be challenging in any optimized hardware environment. Examples include power on/off, power monitoring, system health/event monitoring, remote console access.
You'll leave this session armed with practical knowledge about running OpenStack on Open Compute and other optimized hardware.
