  • DevOps Automation: Cutting Multicloud Costs in Half Recorded: May 5 2021 27 mins
    Sahil Bansal - Senior Product Marketing Manager | Nutanix
    The role of DevOps has become quite critical in a multi-cloud world. Without strong DevOps practices, it is hard for Cloud admins and architects to ensure they are getting the full benefits out of a multi-cloud architecture.

    In this webinar session, we will take an in-depth look into the automation policies and DevOps best practices that cloud admins need to implement, especially from the perspective of controlling runaway cloud spend, across both public and private clouds.
    Join this webinar to learn the best practices for:
    • Dynamic workload placement recommendations
    • Automated migration to Spot instances
    • Intelligent on/off scheduling policies
  • Converged vs. Hyperconverged Infrastructure - Meeting the Demands of the New Era Recorded: Apr 15 2021 43 mins
    Steve Carter | Senior Product Marketing Manager, Nutanix
    Converged infrastructure is several steps up from legacy infrastructure, it loses out when it comes to the cost-saving, application-securing, VM-moving power of hyperconvergence.

    Join us for this webinar where Steve Carter, Senior Product Marketing – Nutanix, will take you through how you can simplify your IT infrastructure.
    In this webinar you will learn:

    • What are the primary benefits of HCI compared to Converged Infrastructure?
    • How WebScale IT infrastructure innovations make HCI possible

  • Reduce Costs and Increase IT Agility with Self-Service Recorded: Apr 13 2021 59 mins
    Mayank Gupta, Senior Product Marketing Manager - Nutanix
    In almost every industry, IT is under tremendous strain as they enable remote work at scale, keep systems up, and strive to reduce costs in this challenging business environment. With resources stretched thin, automation can help IT personnel step away from mundane and repetitive tasks and focus on higher value work, reduce errors, and increase company agility. App developers, for example, can be more productive if they can get independent, on-demand access to the computing resources and database copies they need, without having to wait for a manual action from IT.

    In this webinar we will show how Nutanix can help:

    • Enable internal teams to self-provision and manage common computing resources including VMs and Databases
    • Establish quotas/budgets and audit trails for governance of self-service IT
    • Automatically “right size” VMs to minimise resource waste and maximise application performance
  • Lessons learned: Shifting bank IT Priorities as Economies Re-open Recorded: Apr 8 2021 52 mins
    Kevin Lash, Dir. of Global Financial Services Strategy & Solutions - Nutanix | Michael Araneta, AVP - IDC Financial Insights
    The financial services industry is set for the next phase in the journey to the new normal. For businesses, this phase will involve creating a base for recovery and sustainable growth. But to get there, organisations will need to adopt new, advanced technological capabilities.

    The challenge will be building upon what may have started out as a response strategy for the long term. Thus, these new capabilities will need to support higher standards of operating efficiency, agility, productivity, and performance for all organisations in the years to come.

    In this webinar, industry experts from IDC and Nutanix will discuss how you can respond to the new normal of BFSIs by embarking on more productive ways of doing business, including:

    • IDC research on the technology imperatives for the future
    • Key principles of technology use in 2020 and beyond
    • How to incorporate VDI into your digital transformation game plan

    Steve Kaplan, Vice President, Customer Success | Nutanix
    Disruptive technology such as hyper-converged infrastructure tends to significantly complicate the buying decision. It forces new operational procedures and can impact IT governance, security, and compliance. But even a strong financial justification might not be enough to alter the ingrained processes, interests, and cultural norms surrounding the legacy environment. In many cases, it takes an ROI story.
