The Magic of Non-Persistent Virtual Desktops

Manage webcast
Guise Bule, CEO, tuCloud
Non-persistency is becoming more common in virtual desktop deployments and for a number of different reasons. In this talk I will explain the concept and its application, discussing Federal government non-persistent deployments from a cyber-security perspective and how non-persistency is used by UCLA to help their students get the resources they need.

Finally, I will be talking about the magic of a non-perisistent desktop that uses persistent (virtualized) user layers to provide a persistent experience to its user, the magic being that the user never knows that their desktop is a non-persistent one.

  • Does Your DR Replication Strategy Match Your Business Needs Jul 23 2015 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Gianluca Mariani, SNIA Europe Italy Committee (HP)
    Data unavailability results in lost revenue, customers or business failure. Of the companies experiencing disasters, 43 percent never reopen and 29 percent close within two years.

    Join Gianluca Mariani and other members of the SNIA Italy committee as they discuss the best disaster recovery replication strategies, focusing on defining SLAs, choosing the right architecture, choosing the ingredients, and how cloud can play a part in DR.
  • Hyper-converged BCDR: Using local, remote & cloud-based backups for resiliency Jul 23 2015 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Frank aan de Stegge, Senior Manager Field Marketing, Nutanix
    The vast majority of applications today are under protected – or completely unprotected – making enterprises vulnerable to data loss or downtime during disasters. Legacy data protection and DR solutions, while still relevant to certain classes of workloads, have failed to adapt to the needs of modern virtualized applications and infrastructure.

    Join Frank wan de Stegge as he explains how to use local, remote, and cloud-based backups to achieve high-levels of availability and resiliency in the event of component failure, node failure, rack failure, or an entire datacenter outage.
  • Minimizing Risk with One, Automated Disaster Recovery Solution Jul 22 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer, Long Term Care Group
    Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.

    Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.

    - Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
    - DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
    - Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
    - Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
  • Calculating the cost of critical system downtime Jul 22 2015 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mark Scanlon, UKI Regional Director, Vision Solutions
    How long can you afford to be without data?

    45% of businesses surveyed said that they had experienced a data loss in 2014. Downtime can come from any direction, in any form, at any time. Astonishingly, three-quarters of IT professionals say that they have never calculated the hourly cost of downtime.

    Join Mark Scanlon as he explores how you can reduce the impact of downtime on your business to near zero, whilst making it easier for you to manage your systems.

Join an industry veteran discuss where hyperconverged infrastructure belongs, and how it fits into your datacenter strategy.

    Attendees will learn:

    · The fundamentals of hyperconverged technologies
    · What applications and workloads are best suited for these platforms
    · Things to consider when selecting a hyperconverged solution for your organization
  • Applications, Hyper-Converged and the Data Center Jul 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Leah Schoeb, Solutions & Performance Manager, Intel
    Hyperconverged technology is a term used to describe what some
    vendors are calling 'infrastructure in a box' or 'all-in-one solution.' Virtualization and storage
    administrators understand that it can make sense to couple virtualized
    storage with a virtualized server instance in some cases to create a
    virtualized infrastructure.
    However, there are several issues to consider before plunging into a hyperconverged deployment.

    This session will discuss the applications benefiting from a hyper converged solution and how it fits into your data center.

  • Avoiding Storage Upgrades: The Battle for Resources in VMware Environments Recorded: Jun 24 2015 14 mins
    George Crump, President & Founder, Storage Switzerland; Rod Bagg, VP of Customer Support, Nimble Storage
    In today’s heavily virtualized data centers, VMware environments have the propensity to become massive battlegrounds over precious resources among VMs. Some VMs become bullies; they consume more than their fair share of resources, causing latency and performance bottlenecks that threaten other workloads by starving out neighboring VMs.

    In this video, guru George Crump of Storage Switzerland and Nimble Storage VP of Support Rod Bagg serve up a detailed whiteboard analysis of VM resource contention, and discuss how a data science approach is instrumental in providing the visibility necessary to resolve the issue, without forcing IT teams to resort to unnecessary storage upgrades.
  • Three Reasons SDS Needs to go Back to School Recorded: Jun 24 2015 59 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    Software Defined Storage (SDS) has fundamentally changed the way storage hardware is purchased by abstracting storage services from the physical hardware. But to reach its full potential SDS needs to go back to school. Join us for this live webinar with George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Andrew Flint, VP of Marketing at ioFABRIC as they discuss why SDS has more to learn to deliver the next level of efficiency in the data center.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    •How SDS can drive better storage efficiency
    •How SDS solutions can become more automated
    •Why SDS does NOT need to be hyper-converged
  • Software-Defined Storage: Key Benefits and Use Cases Recorded: Jun 23 2015 42 mins
    George Hamilton, Senior Manager, Product Marketing, Emerging Technologies Division
    Software-defined Storage is much more than marketing buzz. Software-defined storage transforms today’s complex storage environments into simple, extensible and open platforms that are more agile and responsive to business users, developers and customers. SDS also delivers modern storage and data services as software-based services that can leverage existing infrastructure or commodity platforms to radically change storage economics and provide a clear path to the cloud.

    Join us to discover how you can use SDS to shift resources from repetitive, manual administrative tasks to innovative new data services that give you a competitive advantage.
