    • Deploying Windows Server 2016 Hyper-Converged Cluster Platform with NVMe SSD
      Deploying Windows Server 2016 Hyper-Converged Cluster Platform with NVMe SSD Howard Lo; Claus Joergensen; David Risser; Vivek Sarath; Motti Beck; Mike Heumann Recorded: Nov 10 2016 6:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is one of the hottest topics in data center architecture today. In the simplest terms, HCI combines computing, storage, and networking components into a single physical instance. These devices, or HCI appliances, are significantly simpler and cheaper to deploy and make scaling of applications easier. This enables IT managers to maximize their data centers efficiency and meet the networking and storage demands of Microsoft’s Software-defined Data Center (SDDC). The greatest challenge with HCI for medium-sized enterprises, however, has often been finding a solution that is not too large (and expensive) for their needs.

      Join speakers from DataON, Microsoft, Intel, Mellanox and EVGA to learn how to meet this challenge head-on by rapidly and cost-effectively deploying a Windows Server 2016 hyper-converged cluster platform with Non-Volatile Memory Express® (NVMe™) SSDs.

      The webcast will explore the following topics:

      • Basic concepts of HCI, including challenges in deploying HCI solutions
      • How to choose the right partners to architect and deploy a hyper-converged cluster platform
      • Technologies that form the nucleus of DataON’s Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliance (HCCA), including Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Intel E5 CPUs and NVMe 3D NAND SSDs, and Mellanox end-to-end RDMA-capable networking solutions.
      • The benefits that EVGA (a leading hardware provider of high-end hardware components for PC gaming and video) realized by deploying the DataON-Intel-Microsoft hyper-converged cluster solution

      Presented by:
      DataON - Howard Lo, VP of Sales and Marketing
      Microsoft - Claus Joergensen, Principal Program Manager, Enterprise Cloud Group
      Intel - Vivek Sarathy, Storage Solution Architect, NVM Solutions Group
      Mellanox - Motti Beck, Senior Director of Business Development
      G2M Inc. - Mike Heumann, Managing Partner

    • Tech FIeld Day: Network Engineer Roundtable on Deploying SD-WAN
      Tech FIeld Day: Network Engineer Roundtable on Deploying SD-WAN Panel of 8 Network Architects, moderated by Tech Field Day Recorded: Jan 20 2017 5:00 pm UTC 51 mins
    • Ten seasoned network engineers will debate on their views and experiences with SD-WAN. This roundtable discussion moderated by Tech Field Day focuses on how network professionals are analyzing and adopting SD-WAN technology, and integrating it into existing network architectures.

      SD-WAN has been the most rapidly deployed SDN technology. But major concerns remain on which features are the most fundamental and differentiating, and the maturity of the technology for large scale deployments. The major discussion topics will include:

      - Maturity of SD-WAN for prime-time deployment
      - Relative importance of features like routing, security, segmentation, vCPE, multi-tenancy, Application steering, SaaS, and Cloud.
      - ROI and the Before/After picture
      - Most typical use-cases across industries
      - Best practices in deploying SD-WAN based on personal experiences
