  • The New Wave of HCI: Hyperconverged Infrastructure Meets Evolving Expectations Recorded: Nov 13 2019 60 mins
    Mike Piccininni, Senior Manager, Americas Global Alliances – Dell EMC; Ryle Edwards, Inside Solutions Engineer – SHI; Dave Mc
    Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions combine compute, networking, and storage resources into a single system that enables the efficiency and agility that IT organizations crave. Early on, midsize companies successfully deployed HCI solutions on remote office/branch office (ROBO) environments and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) initiatives. These systems allowed IT organizations to both reduce complexity and expense.

    The analysts at IDC expect the HCI market to grow more than 26% year over year for the next five years and the benefits are clear. So, what’s next? Service providers (and end-users) are seeking solutions to help innovate and differentiate. HCI vendors are shifting to a new wave of solutions in order to tackle challenges around artificial intelligence (AI), hybrid cloud deployments and edge computing. Join us for a discussion focused on this new wave of HCI including:
    • How organizations’ expectations have changed - an understanding of what people want out of their clouds
    • The new features/tools organizations can use to innovate and differentiate themselves
    • A view into the roadmap to enable this new wave, created by leading technology vendor Dell EMC

    Our panelists for this session include Mike Piccininni, senior manager, Americas Global Alliances with Dell EMC and Ryle Edwards, inside solutions engineer at SHI. Mike leads the Global Alliances sales teams to co-develop industry-leading service offerings built on Dell Technologies solutions; Ryle has an extensive solutions engineering background and has spent the past four years helping customers evaluate traditional, converged and hyperconverged platforms. Dave McKenney, director of product management at TierPoint will moderate the session. Dave oversees the strategy, product rollout and technical direction of all TierPoint’s cloud solutions.
  • Not Your Grandpa’s DR: Delivering Modern Data Availability for IBM Systems Recorded: Oct 17 2019 49 mins
    Orry Dubois - Chief Technology Officer | ZPX Cloud and PJ Farmer - Director of Product Management |TierPoint
    As hybrid IT environments become the new normal, IT leaders must change their approach to designing and delivering enterprise-wide DRaaS solutions. Disaster recovery solutions must now align with the transformation of production environments to interconnect services, various cloud providers, and IoT, all while securing business-critical data from increasing cyberthreats. For IBM POWER and complex mainframe computing and cloud environments, traditional disaster recovery strategies may not be enough to support today’s business recovery objectives. DR testing the most critical applications once or twice per year is potentially insufficient and has created challenges for IT organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet RTOs and RPOs and have the confidence to invoke their DR plan should an outage occur. Join us for a discussion focused on how a change in thinking about DRaaS solutions can yield unprecedented business resumption capabilities including how to:

    • Overcome challenges associated with hot sites and bare metal restores
    • Benefit from an automated, always-on recovery system
    • Avoid hassles and problems when testing your recovery systems
    • Make hybrid a reality with industry-leading partners in IBM and x86 recovery

    The session will be led by Orry Dubois, Chief Technology Officer at ZPX Cloud. Orry is a 30-year veteran in the disaster recovery (DR) industry and has held various management and leadership roles with multiple DR service providers including Sungard and IBM. PJ Farmer, Director of Product Management at TierPoint, will help review some case studies to understand how this new way of thinking solved our shared clients’ business problems and drove real results.
