Desktop Virtualization With a Bit of Virtual Private Cloud Sprinkled on Top

In this presentation James will talk about desktop virtualisation and also touch on hybrid clouds and how he thinks virtual private clouds are the future.

James Mackie successfully built, ran and quarter owned London's highest ranked community driven website in 2001. James sold his quarter of the Internet firm in 2004 allowing him to setup Appiam, an IT support businesses managing outsourced IT for SME's in the UK. After 4 successful years of running Appiam, James made a multi-million pound investment into VESK virtual desktop.

In the last 3 years, James has pioneered VESK to become one of the leading providers of hosted virtual desktops. James is now working on some of the largest hosted VDI deployments known in the UK across private, third and public sectors.

James' vision for the future is to help businesses reduce their costs, improving the way people use IT in business and pushing heavily on social and corporate responsibilities.

  • The On-Demand Data Center: Why you Should Consider System Virtualization Recorded: Apr 23 2020 36 mins
    Petros Koutoupis, Lead Linux Systems Developer, IBM Cloud Object Storage
    Originally restricted to making better use of physical servers, virtualization has grown to power anything and everything in the modern data center. Along with the technology came the luxury to simplify the provisioning of resources as they are needed.

    In this webinar, we will explore how virtualization can be leveraged to quickly and cheaply create servers on-demand and avoid the lengthy delays associated with handling and cabling physical hardware.

    Join Petros Koutoupis, Lead Linux Systems Developer for IBM Cloud Object Storage, for a technical deep-dive into Linux operating systems running on virtual machines.

    Eric Hibbard, ISO Editor; Alex McDonald, NetApp
    Since the initial publication of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) definition of cloud computing in 2011, international standards development organizations (SDOs) have sought to refine and expand the cloud computing landscape. This webinar will:

    •Identify key published and draft cloud standards
    •Discuss their interdependencies
    •Highlight their importance
    •Identify potential future work.

    In addition, related technologies such as virtualization, federation, and fog/edge computing will be addressed. Lastly, the relevance of the standards will be explored to help organizations understand ways these documents can be exploited.
  • Understanding Fibre Channel Scaling Recorded: Nov 6 2019 60 mins
    Mark Rogov, Dell EMC; Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco
    One of Fibre Channel’s greatest strengths is its ability to scale to thousands and thousands of nodes, while providing predictable performance. So, when we say that Fibre Channel has unmatched scalability, what does that actually mean? And how does it work?

    We often hear about “designed from the ground up,” but in this case it’s actually true. From each individual link, to the overall domain architecture, each step along the way is intended to be approached in a scalable fashion.

    In this webinar, we’ll be breaking down the pieces of the puzzle that help give Fibre Channel its robustness when you’re working at fabrics even greater than 10,000 nodes. We’ll be talking about:

    •What a deterministic storage network is
    •Fabric management principles
    •Negotiated credit transfers (buffer-to-buffer credits)
    •Network Engineering/Design Principles
    •Oversubscription and Fan-In Ratios
    •Topologies that help scale
    •Domains and Fabric limits
    •Consistency of performance at scale

    Along the way, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Fibre Channel differs from other popular storage networks as they approach large-scale environments, and how it handles issues that arise in such cases.

    Please join us on November 6th at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET for another educational webinar on Fibre Channel!

  • What Software Defined Storage Means for Storage Networking Recorded: Oct 22 2019 62 mins
    Ted Vojnovich, Lenovo; Fred Bower, Lenovo; Tim Lustig, Mellanox
    Software defined storage, or SDS, is growing in popularity in both cloud and enterprise accounts. But what makes it different from traditional storage arrays? Does it really save money? Is it more complicated to support? Is it more scalable or higher-performing? And does it have different networking requirements than traditional storage appliances?

    Watch this SNIA webcast to learn:
    •How software-defined storage differs from integrated storage appliances
    •Whether SDS supports block, file, object, or all three types of storage access
    •Potential issues or pitfalls with deploying SDS

  • Kubernetes in the Cloud (Part 3): Stateful Workloads Recorded: Aug 20 2019 58 mins
    Ingo Fuchs, NetApp; Paul Burt, NetApp, Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario
    Kubernetes is great for running stateless workloads, like web servers. It’ll run health checks, restart containers when they crash, and do all sorts of other wonderful things. So, what about stateful workloads?

    This webcast will take a look at when it’s appropriate to run a stateful workload in cluster, or out. We’ll discuss the best options for running a workload like a database on the cloud, or in the cluster, and what’s needed to set that up.

    We’ll cover:
    •Secrets management
    •Running a database on a VM and connecting it to Kubernetes as a service
    •Running a database in Kubernetes using a `stateful set`
    •Running a database in Kubernetes using an Operator
    •Running a database on a cloud managed service
