      Leveraging Compression for SQL Server Performance Sumeet Bansal & Neil Hambly Recorded: Jun 23 2016 11:10 pm UTC 62 mins
    • ndexing is king when it comes to achieving highest levels of performance in SQL Server. When indexing is correctly combined with compression (Enterprise only feature), you can gain significant advantages. During this session, we will demo how to query dynamic management views (DMVs) to identify the right objects on which to implement compression, ways to measure performance and identify impact on memory and other resources. We will cover advanced scripts that provide details on fragmentation, memory caching & compression levels. We will also look at how someone who does not have the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server or latest edition of SQL Server can still leverage compression and gain the performance advantage using the right Flash Storage solution

      DB2 Tech Talk: Compression Comparison DB2 vs. Oracle Database and The Rest Serge Rielau (host), Chris Eaton (presenter) Recorded: Sep 27 2012 4:30 pm UTC 85 mins
    • Running the data storage environment can be a costly proposition. In addition to escalating costs for storage resources, there are additional costs associated with managing, powering and cooling the systems.

      In response to customers concerns about these storage-related costs, IBM Information Management has been delivering advanced capabilities within the DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows product family to reduce storage requirements and improve database performance by focusing on various forms of in-database and in-memory compression.

      With an eye toward current industry capabilities, this Tech Talk delves into the benefits and advantages of the DB2 solution in the following areas:
      • database compression
      • backup and archival compression
      • how and when to use file system and storage deduplication technology

      Along with these features and capabilities native to DB2, we will also compare these to Oracle and the rest of the database industry to show you why DB2 has a clear advantage when it comes to storage optimization.

    • VoIP Header Compression on SDNs
      VoIP Header Compression on SDNs William A. Flanagan, President, Flanagan Consulting Recorded: Jun 15 2016 6:00 pm UTC 19 mins
    • Software-defined networks introduce the central controller that finds paths for connections, on demand. The controller runs routing protocols "virtually," based on knowledge of device status and link state throughout an administrative domain. The 'product' of the path finding is the same for SDNs as for routed or switched networks: entries in forwarding tables in each device that define a path for a connection. Routing protocols (IS-IS for example) rely on header information to find the path and use the full address to identify a packet as part of a stream/connection. An SDN needs only a much smaller channel identifier on each packet, potentially increasing connection capacity by 10X and reducing latency.

    • Addressing Material Properties in the Design of a Direct Compression Continuous
      Addressing Material Properties in the Design of a Direct Compression Continuous Professor Fernando Muzzio Recorded: Jan 16 2014 1:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Virtually, all solid dosage forms in the pharmaceutical industry have been manufactured in ‘batch’ despite cost and processing disadvantages associated with manufacturing a product in batch mode. Market forces coupled with a conducive regulatory environment have enabled researchers to consider manufacturing pharmaceuticals ‘continuously’. The presentation addresses the role of material properties in the design of a direct compaction continuous manufacturing system. The presenter believe that a substantial technical challenge to continuous processing is understanding ‘in-process’ material properties , their interaction with process equipment and subsequent effects on product quality.

    • Is Ransomware Morphing Beyond the Ability of Standard Approaches to Stop It?
      Is Ransomware Morphing Beyond the Ability of Standard Approaches to Stop It? Dan Brown, Detection Architect at Crowdstrike Recorded: May 2 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Ransomware continues to evolve as perpetrators develop new exploits with consequences that can be dramatic and immediate. New super strains go beyond holding files hostage. In Austria, ransomware was used to take over a hotel’s keycard system so guests were locked out of their rooms. Researchers have developed strains that can alter programmable logic controller (PLC) parameters with the potential to throw major mechanical systems into chaos. New defense approaches are needed because organizations can no longer rely on backups and conventional security solutions to protect them. Join CrowdStrike Senior Security Architect Dan Brown as he explains why conventional security isn’t working, and reveals recent innovations – including new Indicator of Attack (IOA) behavioral analysis methodologies – to successfully detect and prevent even the most complex “file-less” ransomware exploits.
      Attend this CrowdCast where Dan will discuss:

      ● The challenges of defending against dangerous new variants, such as Russian roulette-style ransomware that encrypts data in stages, or the use of “known good” programs such as the WinRar data compression tool to implement ransomware

      ● Real-world examples of ransomware in action and how different approaches fare against each type of exploit

      ● How the CrowdStrike Falcon cloud-delivered platform can defend your organization against new super strains of ransomware that use sophisticated malware-free tactics
