  • Sustainable Data Centres? A recipe for ICT, power and cooling solutions Apr 28 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    True sustainability is achieved in three discrete steps - Firstly Reduction of Consumption, secondly Minimisation of Losses and, finally, Power from Renewable Sources. All of these are possible in modern data centre design but come with some increased risks. These risks may be more perceived than real but we have to accept that the primary purpose of a data centre is not to save the user energy but to provide reliable digital services that meet their business case. The users risk profile comes at the top of the design wish list.

    Join Prof. Ian Bitterlin for this presentation as he shows how a sustainable design can be forged for a user with a low appetite for risk and a high appetite for risk with the rewards that accompany it.

  • The State of the Internet of Things: Opportunities and Roadblocks - Expert Panel Mar 19 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Internet of Things (IoT) has now become a mainstream term but much of the attention is focused on the latest gadgets rather than its potential in super-charging efficiencies of every industry sector. Whether it's using connected devices to monitor the health of a patient or an elderly relative in their homes, GE"s smart jet engines that transmit terabytes of data on its condition in-flight or ensuring miners' safety and productivity with integrated communications, tracking and real-time analytics; Internet of Things can have a monumental impact on global economy, with the forecast of over $14 trillion in the next two decades, according to latest research by Accenture.

    But what does this all mean for IT professionals? Beyond the trade show gadgets, IoT initiatives require immense support from all IT functions. Collecting, storing and alayzing immense amounts of data, which can be easily accessed in the cloud at any time and securely shared across connected devices is no easy feat. Moreso, a standardized set of guiding principles is essential for governance and proper implementation of every supported initiative.

  • 50 Shades of Cloud Mar 19 2015 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The rapid virtualization of the enterprise’s data center and the growing acceptance and consumption of cloud-based services are changing the way enterprises do IT.

    While this “cloud revolution” provides clear and substantial business and operational benefits, it brings a fundamental change to compute and storage deployment and use, data flows, network architecture and security.

    This webinar will provide a glimpse into the private and hybrid cloud impact on security in terms of requirements, architecture and the solutions available.
  • Going Hybrid: The First Step to Your Enterprise Cloud Journey. Mar 19 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    The Public Cloud is very useful when high flexibility is needed in terms of allocation and de-allocation of resources, it allows an easily and fast scalability of horizontal architectures while it could be limited when there is the necessity of complex multi-level architectures.

    The Private Cloud is more enterprise oriented; as it allows the creation of complex architectures, providing tools in order to easy manage the network, the storage and specific VM configurations at hardware level. The user will have a Virtual Data Center that implements all the abstractions designed to simulate the behavior of a physical environment.

    It is also possible to configure network architectures involving multi-level services firewalling , load balancing , routed or isolated network, VPN profiles and to have different storage in terms of performance based on specific needs (for example, it will be possible have a database on pure SSD space, or long term archive space based on SATA disks).

    Join this presentation as Eric Sansonny will explain all of the above, and how to use a VPN IPSec to create a hybrid environment.

  • Open Source and Microsoft Azure: An IT Pro's Perspective Mar 17 2015 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Forrester just issued an insightful report on the increasing adoption of open source in the enterprise. The verdict? Open source is everywhere, and taking an ever-increasing piece of the enterprise pie. In seeing this shift in culture and direction, IT pros are looking for a cloud platform and toolset from a vendor they can trust that knows enterprise computing. Microsoft took bold steps over the past few years to deliver a cloud platform to the world that not only runs Microsoft services but makes Open Source a first class citizen, with support of open source technologies like Linux, Docker, and more.

    IT pros and developers want to use the tools that best fit their experience, skills, and application requirements and in this one hour session, we will take an IT pro's perspective on the open source technologies in Azure and some step-by-step guidance as well!
  • Workload Mobility & Protection in the Hybrid Datacenter Mar 17 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Inflexible, constrained, locked in, dependent are all terms we hear used to talk about the IT solutions being used in today’s datacenters. Datacenters are complex with a variety of physical, virtual, and cloud platforms for both computing and storage. Solutions that promise to make a datacenter more manageable, often lock you in to specific platforms or singular processes.

    Join this session with Doug Piper to learn about the top 10 capabilities needed to ensure that you are able to freely move your workloads to run on the best platform, and protect them wherever they are running.
  • What’s best for VDI Hybrid or All-Flash Storage Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The top concern for IT planners looking to implement or expand the use of their VDI investment is storage performance. This is because every step that is taken to drive down cost per desktop, or improve the user experience, impacts storage performance and capacity. All-flash arrays address the performance problem with a sledgehammer and for many environments they can be the most cost effective option. But for others, hybrid solutions may make more sense.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the various challenges that VDI scale brings to storage and how All-Flash Arrays and Hybrid Arrays can address those challenges.
  • Unacquainted Friends: Virtualization and Big Data Mar 11 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Big data and virtualization have seldom had their paths intersect to this point as, like most breakthrough innovations, big data has been delivered in very tightly integrated packages during the initial phase of adoption. However, with an increasing number of enterprises embracing a “virtualized first” approach to their IT infrastructure, broad-based acceptance of big data will require a more modular and VM-centric mode of consumption going forward. This session will focus on how these complementary technologies can come together to better yield big knowledge from big data analytics.
  • Understand the Business Value Lifecycle for 3D Modeling and Project-Oriented ERP Mar 5 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    New projects drive revenue. Every project is different, has different deadlines, and has different data management requirements. Delivering an IT infrastructure that can deal with the erratic workloads and constantly changing data needs is nearly impossible, let alone being confident that Finance will be able to run reports fast enough to close the books at the end of the month with no complaints.
