Tom Clark, Member of SNIA Board of Directors
Hardware efficiencies are essential to reducing the amount of power used by storage. Equally real savings are obtained by reducing the number of copies of your data that must be made, kept, and managed. This talk presents a number of technologies, ranging from thin provisioning and virtulization to flywheel UPSs, that each address part of the problem, and illustrates the impact that each technology can have on your data center footprint.

Tom Clark is the Principal Engineer at Brocade Communications as well as a member of the SNIA Board of Directors.

  • The course will explain the principles, process and value of power performance verification. From turbine supply contract negotiation through completion of power performance verification, there are many opportunities to reduce the risk associated with wind turbine performance. Trends will be presented and guidance provided for what to expect at all stages including:

    - Contract negotiation
    - Site evaluation
    - Measurement system design
    - Data processing and interpretation – including case studies
    - Documentation of results

    On completion, delegates should understand the value of power performance verification, how the process works and how to minimize the risk. Specifically: how to set the stage during contract negotiation for a successful campaign; what factors most influence the wind speed measurement and how to design for the lowest uncertainty; how the results can be interpreted and leveraged.
  • Organisations across all sectors are dealing with a growing array of third party/vendor relationships. Even obscure supplier relationships can have significant impact on security, risk and compliance. The Target credit card breach is one example in which a heating and air conditioning supplier was the doorway in to a significant breach of a point of sale system and theft of credit card data. Organisations have to manage risk across their third party supplier relationships but are limited in the resources they can devote to this.

    This 'Expert' webinar will address the following:-

    o Understand the growing array of third party relationships
    o The impact of third party relationships on security, risk and compliance
    o Elements of an effective, efficient, and agile vendor risk management process
    o How other areas of the organisation can leverage a common approach to third party risk management

    Attend this webinar if:-

    o You are concerned by the growing number of third party supplier relationships
    o You realise your risk and compliance exposure is growing because of these relationships
    o You need to be able to manage supplier risk but cannot recruit more staff to do so
    o You desire the need to know how to keep current in a dynamic environment of third party relationships
  • The term Smart City is gaining momentum the world over, but does that mean that cities are becoming “smarter” or just looking to improve their image? What does it truly mean to be a “smart” city? And is it resonating with their residents, businesses and visitors? This briefing will look into how the smallest changes approaching city services can have a big impact on everything from security to energy and traffic to urban revitalization

    Reasons to Attend:

    - To understand key challenges cities are facing in the face of issues such as urbanization, environmental responses and new technologies
    - To examine new ways cities are integrating smarter solutions to address seemingly unrelated services, for better quality of life and a higher tax base
    - To explore how suppliers can provide comprehensive solutions to such a fragmented market
  • Connected homes are prime examples of innovative applications of technology meant to enable enriched lifestyle experiences for consumers. However, allowing third parties an open access to home networks to deliver these experiences exposes both the consumer and service providers to the potential vulnerabilities of cyberspace. It is critical to understand that cyber threats require collective responsibility and accountability sharing from all stakeholders involved.

    This briefing will deliberate upon the issue of cybersecurity as it pertains to the connected home environment. An expert panel comprising members of Frost & Sullivan, connected home technology leaders, and a consumer privacy advocate will provide advice and opinions with regard to addressing this disruptive trend. Industry participants will learn how to address the issue of cyber breach and maintain continued interest in living the connected experience.

  • Does Your Organisation Really Know it's True or Total IT Cost? Aug 12 2015 9:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Jerry Wertelecky, CPA, Fellow HKloD & Managing Director
    IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.

    Join Jerry Wertelecky as he discusses:

    • Facilitate collaboration between IT and Finance to increase visibility into the costs, utilization and operations of all IT Services

    • Leverage a deep understanding of what drives IT costs and performance to improve scenario planning capabilities and make better IT decisions

    • Provide IT cost and consumption data to business owners in the form of a “Bill of IT” to more effectively communicate the value of IT to the business.

    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 Wim Vandebroeck 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.
  • Hyperconvergence without the Hype Recorded: Jul 21 2015 39 mins
    Adam Moreland, Product Marketing Manager, Nutanix

  • Applications, Hyper-Converged and the Data Center Recorded: Jul 21 2015 19 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.
