Learn how to:
- Reduce SMB Storage Costs
- Eliminate the complexity and risk of storage sprawl
- Incrementally grow capacity to any size required using simple, low cost storage blocks
- Deploy enterprise-class storage without the cost or complexity
The first server that the small to medium sized business (SMB) purchases is often one that allows for file sharing and collaboration called network attached storage (NAS). As the business grows and becomes a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) the first point of storage trouble is often that standalone NAS. It runs out of capacity, it can't provide enough performance or both. As a result the SME is forced to add standalone NAS after NAS to keep up with these demands which leads to storage sprawl. Storage sprawl places pressure on every aspect of the SME as the storage line item becomes a larger and larger part of the storage budget, while the ability to provide 24/7 uptime decreases.
Join Storage Switzerland's Lead Analyst, George Crump and Kelly Murphy CEO of Gridstore for a discussion of the issues with Storage Sprawl and how you can stop it by taking a technology created for the large enterprise, Scale Out NAS, and applying it to the mid-sized market.
Small- to medium–sized enterprises (SMEs) often dismiss their potential as targets of cybersecurity attacks. Despite this, a Ponemon study of some 2,000 SMEs last year found that they lost on average more than $1.6 million due to such attacks.
Due to small budgets, few or no dedicated security staff and overly complex security solutions, SMEs continue to face challenges in their efforts to proactively protect their networks, data and systems. This webcast investigates the barriers these organizations face in protecting their digital assets and what attackers hope to gain through a compromise. It also uses a case study of a breach initiated by the compromise of a forgotten asset to examine what SMEs can do to protect themselves using a comprehensive solution in a cost-effective, uncomplicated manner.
At SMEs, where security personnel are in short supply, there’s nowhere for blame to shift when the inevitable compromise hits. In this webcast, you’ll learn essential tips from the trenches that will help keep your organization secure. Learn from the author’s experience working with companies of all sizes and budgets, ensuring that even those with meager resources aren’t left behind when it comes to actionable and practical advice.
Although Test Automation is not a new concept anymore, many retailers are struggling to test POS systems successfully. Testing a POS software package manually can lead to many challenges like:
•Increased Time to Market since the complete test cycle of integrated POS may take months
•Poor Quality of builds due to high chances of defect leakages in manually tested builds
•Complexity as the POS systems come with multiple integration points and complex business scenarios
•Increased cost due to the huge efforts involved in manual testing
Our speakers, having worked with several retailers understand deeply the challenges in POS testing and the factors that need to be considered while automating the test process.
•Challenges faced in testing POS systems
•How Test automation is beneficial for retailers
•The know-how – Test automation framework suitable for testing a POS
•How Test Automation looks like in reality while testing a POS– A case scenario

In spite of IT’s stepped up efforts, firms continue to face increased risk exposure from gaps in compliance, security and illegal behavior. Unfortunately much of this risk stems from what a company doesn’t know about their information.
In this webinar, information governance experts will discuss:
•The importance of gaining insight across your enterprise information
•How this insight directly impacts your ability to achieve compliance, mitigate risk, and avoid costly penalties
•Perspectives on the right strategies, processes, and tools that can help you proactively take action with data to reduce risk
Open Source is growing like wildfire, and with it the popularity of Linux, the OS that increasingly drives how business interacts with the world. Linux’s popularity spans every industry, fueling increasing demand to exploit Linux in the enterprise for business-critical applications and for service providers anxious to offer enterprise-grade Linux to their cloud clients.
This means new requirements that must be addressed to ensure Linux deployments are enterprise ready- -- that means capable of massive transaction volumes at unprecedented scale, and built not to fail or crack - ever. Getting it right means growth and opportunity. Getting it wrong means running hundreds or thousands of servers, adding cost, complexity, latency and vulnerability—and lost business. How to get it right? Attend this complimentary webinar presented by Slashdot Media to hear IBM Linux experts Donna Dillenberger, Angel Diaz and Steven Dickens discuss how to get from open source project to enterprise-grade Linux with IBM LinuxONE.
Attendees will learn:
•What’s driving the demand for Enterprise-grade Linux
•How Ecosystem communities have come together to ensure open solutions
•How to leverage the latest technology platform to turbocharge Linux and open source apps
•New ROI models that enable seamless migration to LinuxONE platforms
•What enterprises and service providers can do now to begin the journey to enterprise Linux
Don’t hesitate – view this webinar now to see a live demo and learn how enterprise Linux can help your business today.
Resilience, Security, Accessibility and Productivity
Many small and medium businesses think disasters won’t happen to them, or they can’t be hacked. Worse still, they think IT can be turned on and off as they see fit.
Closing the gaps in security controls, systems, people and processes is not an easy feat, particularly for IT practitioners in smaller organizations with limited budgets and few (if any) dedicated security staff. So, what are the essential security capabilities needed to establish a security operations center and start closing those gaps?

Developments in the threat landscape driving a shift from preventative to detective controls
Essential security controls needed to defend against modern threats
Fundamentals for evaluating a security approach that will work for you, not against you

David Calder and Cat McLean, litigation lawyers, have witnessed over the last few years some questionable behaviour from of some of the UK's best known banks.
More recently they brought the Royal Bank of Scotland to court and won in the case of Royal Bank of Scotland vs. Carlyle a client of their legal firm and a well respected property developer who has suffered at the hands of his bank despite many years of loyal business.
Far from being an isolated case, David and Cat are finding and hearing many more companies coming forward with similar stories. The evidence suggests that the problem which brought Derek’s case to court is in fact far more widespread than first thought. There will an opportunity to contribute and ask questions of Cat and David during this live webcast.
