Blueprinting: The Key to Data Center Transformation
Complex IT infrastructure interdependencies and an incomplete inventory of IT assets and their relationships to business applications can hinder a successful transformation.
So how do you obtain the accurate, reliable, and timely information you need to make optimal business decisions throughout your data center transformation? How can you plan your transformation initiatives in confidence while minimizing risk and ensuring IT service ability?
Attend this session to learn how an automated approach to blueprinting can provide the foundation you need to embark on your data center transformation.

Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.
But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?
This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
•General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
•Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
•How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.
This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!

Chances are that your IT operations is challenged by ever growing business demand. Better user satisfaction, doing more with less, and positioning IT operations to accelerate business agility are common themes. When event storms, downtime, resource starvation and new application rollouts are happening at the same time, something has to change in IT. Both Beiersdorf and Swiss Mobilair have succeeded in changing their IT Operations to drastically reduce event volumes and gain faster MTTR focusing all the while on impact full issues and not symptoms. Join us to learn about their experiences, and get a heads up on what’s new with HPE Operations Bridge

In an SDN-world, every layer of the network is defined as code. This removes the ability to design or rely on physical controls for security and traffic management. Additionally, each new application requires a network architecture concept. It's very easy for large, distributed organizations to get this wrong. How can you ensure that your organization is using software-defined networks in the cloud in EXACTLY the way that you want to be using them? And at scale, that problem only gets more and more challenging. The answer is clear - automation is the key. Design and build rules that can take action in real-time to enforce an SDN configuration with proper policy and security.
To accelerate your business outcomes should you use public or private cloud? The jury has decided and the verdict is: “hybrid.” So you need to manage a hybrid cloud, but what does this exactly mean? Hybrid Cloud Management means managing the entire cloud lifecycle: from design, through workload provisioning, to operations (e.g. monitoring, finance, change, and configuration). This Cloud Model Office webinar will show you Hybrid Cloud Management use cases in action. In this webinar you will see how you can implement capabilities like
Dynamic scalability (flexing)
Hybrid cloud provisioning
Capacity-driven service provisioning
Automated Change & Configuration management

Everyone is talking about DevOps, scaling Agile, and delivering software faster and with great quality. For many traditional companies in banking, insurance, automotive, manufacturing and healthcare, trying to adopt DevOps or Agile are daunting tasks. There has to be a marriage between adopting new processes and tools, and using the existing processes and tools that are necessary for enterprise-scale software development and delivery. Join us in the webinar to discuss:
•The elements of a DevOps, Agile or Lean transformation
•The realities of DevOps, Agile or Lean at enterprise-scale
•Common pitfalls in executing a transformation
•How using lifecycle integration and automation of handoffs in the development process are critical to avoiding these mistakes
Edward L. Haletky & Mike Kavis, TVP Strategy, and Andi Mann, Splunk
Today we have made release cycles of new code take no more than 15m. By doing so we have lost some of the tools we have used in the past. Tools to maintain Code Quality. We use metrics that are about people more than we use metrics about code.
If we are lucky, we have automated and orchestrated the deployment into production, but that is not how developers work, not how Q/A works, and most importantly no how we measure quality.
Join this panel discussion with TVP Strategy (The Virtualization Practice) and Splunk to explore how to add quality back into our code by creating repeatable processes, measure those processes, and use automation and orchestration from beginning to end for all use cases.
We hope you may find some new ideas to implement with your team. The field of Performance Engineering is changing rapidly over the last few years due to technology and perception of the field by the business areas. The presentation today will cover several areas that have proven successful in this new era of engineering.

All you need to know, what it means and why it matters
Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and other recent well-known technology trends in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users.
