The third installment of our performance benchmarking Webcast series, “Storage Performance Benchmarking: Block Components” aims to continue educating anyone untrained in the storage performance arts to ascend to a common base with the experts. In this Webcast, you will gain an understanding of the block components of modern storage arrays and learn storage block-world terminology, including:
•How storage media affects block storage performance
•Integrity and performance trade-offs for data protection: RAID, Erasure Coding, etc.…
•Terminology updates: seek time, rebuild time, garbage collection, queue depth and service time
After the Webcast, visit our Webcast Q&A blog too http://sniaesfblog.org/?p=521
Application stakeholders, programmers and testers are now treating performance as a primary consideration at every stage of SDLC.
With more and more organizations moving to Agile software development, performance testing needs to start as early as analysis and designing. Application performance depends on the system design and should be taken up during sprints for quality deliverables.
To remain efficient in an Agile environment, you will need to change the way you are used to managing your performance testing.
Join us for this webinar where we will present the approach, tools and solutions that can help in integrating performance testing with Sprints.
The audience will get introduced to:
•How to plan performance testing in agile projects?
•How to automate end-to-end performance testing cycle?
•How to identify bottlenecks during core development?
The Webcast aims to bring anyone untrained in the file performance arts to a common base with the experts. Discover some commonalities and differences between basic Block and File terminology and learn:
· Basic File Components and the meaning of the data workloads
· Main characteristics of various workloads and their respective dependencies, assumptions and environmental components
· The complexity of the technology benchmark interpretations
Discover why file performance benchmarking truly is an art and reach enlightenment via the industry-grade common sense and presenter's guru-esc advice.
The adoption of performance management methodologies across all types of businesses continues, but the expected step-change in organisational performance still today, often proves elusive.
Join Information Builders and Phil Jones, a thought-leader in performance management and business strategy, where we will identify some of the key reasons for such mixed results.
In this 30 minute webinar, we will explain the importance of connecting up common performance management practices with decision-making processes within organisations, to deliver a significant improvement in operational performance.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- How decisions really get made in organisations
- Where traditional performance management thinking can go wrong
- How to make sense of the maelstrom of KPIs, measures and useful information
- Best practices for taking and acting on decisions to improve performance
- How to really learn from decision making and performance management
The first installment of our performance benchmarking Webcast series, “Storage Performance Benchmarking: Introduction and Fundamentals” aims to bring anyone untrained in the storage performance arts to a common base with the experts. In this first webcast, gain an understanding of the complexities of benchmarking modern storage arrays and learn the terminology foundations necessary for the rest of the series. This includes:
•The different kinds of performance benchmarking engagements
•Metrics: why the “right” metrics matter, and an introduction to the variety of metrics that may be relevant to your business
•Terminology basics: iops, op/s, throughput, bandwidth, latency/response time
The traditional performance management approach of ratings and annual appraisals is under fire, and rightly so. But what do you do instead?
This webinar is a shortened version of my all day workshop at December’s CIPD Performance Management Conference and will look at an alternative approach where you will learn about...
· The wider performance system operating in your organisation.
· A diagnostics tool to discover the levers to pull to change the system.
· Capability, and how to view it in a new way to improve future performance
· The real role managers should play in performance management.
Over the past decade applications, and especially web applications, have become increasingly complex. Driven by Mobile devices – smartphones, tablets, and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – performance demands on application infrastructures have never been higher. At the same time competitive pressures are driving businesses to roll out new products and services to generate new revenue streams, all of which rely on applications.
All of this complexity makes problem identification and resolution near impossible. How quickly can you find the source of problems and determine how to fix them? Can you do this without having costly war room sessions? Riverbed understands these challenges and we’re focused on delivering application that perform, empowering you to rapidly exploit new opportunities, and deliver cost savings to your business.
Attend this session to learn how:
* Big Data APM enables you to scale your applications and increase reliability
* To identify how Big Data APM helps you detect and fix application performance problems quickly with
** End User Experience Monitoring that tells you whether your users are happy or frustrated
** End-to-end transaction tracing with High Definition performance data
* Big Data Analytics that not only identify problems but characterize the business impact as well
* To dramatically decrease triage time and MTTR by up to 95%
* Companies are using Riverbed APM solutions to solve real-world performance problems

Client/server software like Subversion can be a black box to administrators, making it hard to identify the root cause of performance problems. In this session, we'll outline common issues and provide step-by-step instructions to help you find and eliminate bottlenecks quickly.
• Understanding Subversion's operative model
• Typical scenarios to test
• Typical benchmarking pitfalls
• Best-case results as a reference
Riverbed application performance gurus Brian Howard and Peco Karayanev will discuss the top challenges facing application, operations, and development teams in the pursuit of crazy fast performance. Attend this highly educational event to learn how to:
* Apply Agile development to help you deliver speed without the headaches
* Solve application performance problems quickly
* Transform problems into proactive opportunities
* Get stakeholders to collaborate effectively
Accurate monitoring and management of storage performance is fundamental to the success of any organization looking to boost efficiency of their IT infrastructure. VMware performance engineer Chethan Kumar and Nimble Storage technologist Wen Yu go deep to discuss the various dimensions of storage performance as it relates to specific workloads and virtualized environments. Join this presentation for insight into storage fundamentals, key performance considerations and best practices to get the most out of storage infrastructure.Read more >
Over 75% of the application performance problems exist today because of poor performing storage in either IOPS, bandwidth or latency. Achieving ideal storage performance becomes a greater challenge the more diverse and complex the workload, which can ultimately bring storage performance to its knees. Many flash array vendors claim to solve application performance challenges, yet few can keep their performance promises with today’s demands on storage.
In this webcast, we will discuss real world mixed workload requirements for applications focusing on two common use cases – virtualization and SAP. The lessons learned will be valid for all business critical applications. We will focus on how to test mixed workloads and what results to look for from a high performance SSD storage.
Today’s high performance computing (HPC) environments are more demanding than ever. To meet the needs of complex simulations and ever-increasing massive workloads, HPC clusters need to support faster, high core count processors, coprocessors, and higher node count clusters. Performance is key … but at what cost? In this webinar, you will learn about the factors that drive fabric performance and their impact on your investment in HPC; How the fabric is a key component of your overall HPC solution; and performance and price comparisons of some of the fabric choices available to you today.Read more >
