  • Supporting and Extending Virtual Computing Dec 10 2020 6:00 pm UTC 25 mins
    Derek Siler, Flexential Solutions Architect
    Virtualization remains at the forefront of the data center and is extending into the cloud to enable true hybrid and multi-cloud environments. In this session Derek Siler, Solutions Architect at Flexential, discusses the drivers for enterprises to consider where their most critical workloads live and the considerations for determining their hybrid IT infrastructure and supporting their virtualization journey.
  • Protecting Your Remote Workforce Dec 3 2020 6:00 pm UTC 29 mins
    Derek SIler, Flexential Solutions Architect
    Organizations were recently presented with the unexpected challenge of converting to a fully remote workforce. Many organizations may have assumed that their existing “work-from-home” plan that was in place for normal business operations would suffice in the event of a disaster. The reality is, there are only a handful of companies out there that ever tested their infrastructure’s ability to handle sending their entire workforce home to work for an extended period of time.

    This conversation not only shed a whole new light on supporting virtual workforces, but maintaining a secure and compliant environment for their business-critical functions. In this session, Derek Siler will discuss the impact that the shift to “WFH” had on IT infrastructure and security & compliance, how a cloud solution can support this new environment and maintain business continuity, and the keys to pairing your cloud and data protection infrastructure to achieve business success, whether facing the regular or the unexpected.

    Not All Workloads Are Created Equal: How to Design Your Hybrid IT Environment Based on Your Application Requirements

    Today’s modern enterprises understand every application can and should be categorized by priority and level of mission-criticality in order to dictate the IT environment that they adopt, be it local/on-prem, or hosted off-prem via Colocation or Cloud, either Private, Public, DRaaS Cloud or a hybrid mix of any of these.


    In this session, Melanie Posey, Research Vice President and General Manager at 451 Research, and Derek Siler, Solution Architect at Flexential discuss designing hybrid IT environments based on application requirements.
  • The latest findings in next-gen data center development Recorded: Aug 17 2020 65 mins
    Michael Silla, SVP Design & Construction
    In a rapidly evolving IT environment, a flexible and hybrid approach to IT has become commonplace and futureproofing requirements remains a key challenge. This debate explores next-gen development delving into challenges and discussing best practice.

    Is a rigid process critical to efficiently developing purpose-built facilities? What role should flexibility and collaboration play in building your next gen data center? We will address these and other key questions around developing next gen data centers with a focus on speed to market, cost and flexibility.

    This debate will discuss:

    - Who are the right players to include in the design process?
    - What are the considerations for an assembly line approach to data center construction?
    - How does modularizing electrical and mechanical equipment provide efficiencies?
    - Which best practices are used in managing the entitlement process?
  • Ransomware Readiness: Prepare your defense against the threat Recorded: Aug 13 2020 41 mins
    Bhu Virdi; Director of Solutions Architecture, Flexential & Will Bass; Senior Solutions Architect, Flexential
    In 2019, ransomware attacks reportedly cost the United States $7.5 billion, and the average recovery time for each incident was 287 days. The incidents were not simply expensive inconveniences; the disruption they caused put people’s health, safety and lives at risk. It’s clear that ransomware is a serious threat, and it’s only becoming more advanced and harder to defend against. Only a proactive strategy and robust recovery plan can minimize your vulnerability and prepare your organization to effectively defend against these threats.

    During this webinar, you will learn the ransomware landscape and 2020 trends, who is most vulnerable to attacks and why, best practices to assess your IT environment and prevent attacks and real-world use cases for successful defense against and recovery from ransomware.

  • Is there such thing as too big for the cloud? Recorded: Jun 11 2020 51 mins
    Jason Carolan, Flexential
    For infrastructure leaders tasked with bolstering workload resilience, the pendulum is swinging back from housing data in ‘the cloud’ to housing data in a self-owned facility. As enterprises scale, they can often become ‘too big for the cloud’ in their efforts to lower storage costs. However, cloud service providers are keenly aware of the dense compute, storage and software-laden networking required by enterprises of the future and are adapting their cost models to match changing expectations. We ask our panelists how their cloud providers are faring in the face of increased infrastructure complexities. How vital are ‘favourable’ cost models to the ultimate location of workloads, storage and networking infrastructure?

    Melanie Posey, 451 Research; Craig Cook, Flexential
    As intensity around cost management, security, compliance, and latency grow, businesses are more entrenched than ever in balancing a hybrid IT environment. Cloud solutions are a significant consideration in this ecosystem.

    Many enterprises that have gone all-in on public cloud infrastructure models only to discover unexpected costs, security and compliance limitations, and unsatisfactory latency.
